    What is your thoughts on Ross Perot and the Reform Party in the 1990s?

    I still have a Ross Perot campaign button. Wanted something different than the status quo we have had until Trump came along and finally broke the insider barrier. The insiders wanted Perot gone like they want Trump gone but Perot wasn’t up to the dirty tricks.

    I would like to know how "they got to him".
    Got to him as in self destructing his campaign.

    That is my second how "they got to him" question after the Warren Commission.

    You mean the man that caused Bill Clinton to win the Presidency. I think he was a billionaire who hated GHW Bush, and decided to destroy him.

    History has proven him correct about the deficit and NAFTA.

    I was a registered member of The Reform Party, when Ross stopped running for the Oval Office, I changed my party affiliation to Independent No Party Affiliation.

    Why did Perot self destruct his campaign?

    I liked him too.
