    H. Ross Perot dead

    R.I.P.

    The thing I admire about him was his honesty when he proclaimed "I'm all ears"

    Was he being paranoid when he claimed that government agencies were after him and his family? Back then his claims did seem a little paranoid but look at what the establishment has tried to do to President Trump.

    Back when I was in the military I rarely voted. I felt that we shouldn't vote for someone that would be our "boss". The 2 exceptions were I voted for Reagan & against Jimmy Carter. I guess that I felt that we shouldn't be mixed up in politics. I certainly see now that all of Washington is political & slanted. I no longer have any trust in those people that run Washington & that includes the dog catchers there.

    Perot gave the US the Clintons, Bill and, indirectly, Hill. Won't be mourning him.

    Perot cost George H.W. Bush his re-election in 1992 and we got Bill Clinton, instead.

    I'm no fan of the Bushes, especially H.W., but in his later years Perot is reported to have regretted essentially helping Clinton win the election.

    Dying at 89, H. Ross Perot, a billionaire, lived a long and prosperous life. RIP.

    You really need a link for that one. As I remember, he was a paranoid, megalomaniac who had no interest in anything except power and money. As I recall, Ross Perot never saw a hot LZ.

    He did prosper with government contracts after he got Bill Clinton in the White House.

    Perot saw what was coming , a pre Trumper, and the Bush CIA went after him . It backfired and Bush didn't get the votes from Perots republican followers but Clinton did get the Perot democrats . Perot had scruples , the 2 politicians didn't .

    What an illogical idea.

    He made a whole lot of sense during the campaign, however America still was relatively an innocent political nation at the time, media was trusted, although like the courts, somewhat left-leaning and Congress was generally bipartisan.

    The cesspool of Deep State, bureaucrat Washington and biased media of today didn't exist or at least we didn't know it existed. We changed America by ballot not bullet, as we always do, and generally trusted authority, police, religious leaders and teachers, particularly in college.

    Little did we understand the corruption and hatred that America was held in by the elite, even the Bush's and Clinton's at the time.

    Perot opened some eyes - his campaign perhaps opened the door for a outside-of-Washington candidate like Donald Trump, to run for the office challenging the status-quo of the do-nothing politicians. I am sure the Trump campaign studied Perot's run before he decided to make his historic attempt.

    We got Bill Clinton, a masterful politician as President because of Ross Perot, and America essentially ignored the dishonest and sexual record of the man. He had a satisfactory eight years in office.

    As for Mr. Perot, would have liked to have heard his opinion on Trump at some time.

    However, not possible.

    RIP Mr. Perot.
