I'm left to only ponder helplessly just how different things could have been had Perot been given the shot to implement his ideas for change. We need a Perot today.

He was the only candidate to oppose NAFTA. What happened to the U.S. economy after that? The corporations got bigger, merged, increased their market shares, and streamlined their operations right into Mexico, Central America, China, Malaysia and India. What happened to those manufacturing jobs, those value added jobs that spawned so many other jobs, what happened to all the small businesses that couldn’t compete with the big box stores, the retail giants sourcing their products straight from the...more

It was somewhat odd reading this book. I was only 8 during the 1992 election, and in it's aftermath, all I understood was that Ross Perot cost George Bush the election and ushered in a Democrat (which we were not happy about in my Rush Limbaugh-listening house).

Being older, I was curious to know what exactly it was about Ross Perot that captured nearly 20% of the popular vote in 1992. What about this businessman shifted the complexion of the election?

As it turns out, he had ideas. Now, I wouldn'...more

When I was 13, the 1992 election was in full swing and I was an avid TV watcher. Suddenly, all of CBS's programming had become Ross Perot infomercials where he explained things with pie charts.

Perot had some interesting ideas for reforming our spending and bringing down the deficit, and I wonder what he'd have to say about the country's current situation. There are points of agreement and disagreement throughout this book, which he anticipates and allows for. However, I couldn't get past his pro-choice views and had to put the book aside. When I hear the phrase "a woman's right to choose," I can only think about babies being killed. This depressed me to the point that I didn't care wh...more

Ross Perot's 1992 campaign manifesto and gripping political book gave every American a look at the future filled with great proposals and predictions of what would happen if the debt and spending were not brought under control.
