Where’s Ross Perot?

We had Michael Badnarik in 2004, but nobody listened. How many more times will you vote for big government before you wake up and say no more.

Walker’s not the only one saying it. As Congress and the White House struggle to trim up to $50 billion from the federal budget over five years – just 3% of the $1.6 trillion in deficits projected for that period – budget experts say the nation soon could face its worst fiscal crisis since at least 1983, when Social Security bordered on bankruptcy.

Without major spending cuts, tax increases or both, the national debt will grow more than $3 trillion through 2010, to $11.2 trillion – nearly $38,000 for every man, woman and child. The interest alone would cost $561 billion in 2010, the same as the
Pentagon.

I know it’s just a title for your site’s latest entry but Ross Perot has dropped out of politics for good. I spoke with Russ Verney a few weeks ago and Ross has created a private hospital to treat Iraq war veterans that the government was failing to assist.

Here’s a link to an older story about Perot being honored for his assistance of Vietnam Veterans.

    Luckily in Ohio we have Bill Peirce [ http://peirceforohio.com ] as an alternative. I hope the residents of other states will also have a chance to vote against big government and high taxes next year and in the years ahead.

    Of course, we still have Michael Badnarik, now running in Texas for US Congress (District 10) with a 100% intention to win. http://www.badnarik.org

    I kinda miss Perot. All that “Larry? Can I get in a word here? Now, lissen… you couldn’t pay me to be President. Can I finish? Government sucks!” stuff… gosh, good times. That was the LAST non-RepubliCrat in the Prez debates, and the debate commission has been raising the bar every four years to insure the continued snoozefest between Choice A and Choice 1A. What a sad state of affairs.

    Ross Perot would have brought a new lease on life to American politics and it is a sad indictment on the media of the USA that they take “pride” in putting this proud Americans’ life under intense scrutiny in the hope that they can find something to use against him. Ross, if you were to run for President again – don’t give up the race part the way through! Go the whole hog! You may not win (so what) but you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you gave it your best shot and we are proud of you.
