Who would receive your vote?
"I have never understood why it is "greed" to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else's money." -Thomas Sowell
Perot without question.
what he said ^^
None-Bush didn't care enough to be reelected and he made the mistake of compromising with the dems on the taxes-he was too naive to understand they would never give him credit for that move that was going to cost him votes from people like me. He also banned the importation of lots of expensive rifles to appease the gun haters
Clinton-nope-not with his gun bans and his tax hikes and his judicial picks
Perot-nope-too much ego-he ran because he wanted to screw Bush over for not kissing Perot's ass enough
I voted Libertarian then. Bush deserved to lose, Clinton and Perot didn't deserve to win
Perot was, by far, the most electable libertarian we've ever had.
When I first heard that Perot was going to run, I was very hopeful. Some of what I knew about his past seemed to me to be indicative of someone who could be very good Presidential material. I thought his success in business would indicate a good sense of how to run a national economy, and I was particularly impressive by something he did during the 1970s. Back during the Iran hostage crisis, while Jimmy Carter was busy kissing the Khomeiniacs' asses trying to get them to release the embassy personnel that they were holding, Perot had dealt in a much more realistic and effective manner with another group of Khomeiniacs holding some of his employees. He hired a gang of mercenaries who went into Iran, kicked some serious butt, and brought Perot's employees safely home.
Unfortunately, once his campaign was underway, and Perot actually started opening his mouth, he came across as bat**** crazy, and not in a way that was in any way good.
The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
I thought he came across as intelligent, eloquent, and economically well-versed. The problem? The average American is not intelligent, eloquent, and economically well-versed.Originally Posted by Bob Blaylock
He would sit there and explain economics on big white boards that, while sensible down to every last market stroke, was far beyond the mental realm of John Q. Public. They don't want that. They want the old white conservative Republican who glad-hands all the yokels when they come to town, or the smooth-talking, good-looking youngster who would shoot a round of pool with them at the bar.
The average person is not just ignorant to intelligence, they're apathetic to it these days.
I was 12, but I do remember laughing at Ross Perot and his ears.
