Sage advice from Ross Perot

Posted on Updated on

Ross Per…..who?  Ross Perot was a businessman who ran for President in ’92 and he railed against the government’s fiscal insanity that created the large national debt which was $4 trillion at the time.  He demonstrated the debt was mostly due to the Reagan and Bush years; the 12 years before 1992.  When Reagan took office the national debt was only $934 billion. Now our debt is over $9 trillion and it’s mostly due to Reagan/Bush/Bush.  We can’t let the Credit Card Republicans continue to bankrupt our country.

Perot also said we would hear “a giant sucking sound” as our jobs left the country if we signed NAFTA and trade agreements like it. Guess what – he was right again. Bill and Hillary Clinton and Al Gore were for NAFTA and agreements like it (just like BUSH) and they were wrong. From Barack Obama’s speeches I think he may understand this.  Fast forward on this video by 3 minutes:

Sage advice from the past.  It applies now more than ever.

    Thanks Jackson. I wish someone would come along again and give another warning to this country about the national debt before our country is foreclosed on.
