Ross Perot Quotes

Years ago, Ross Perot warned us.

His father also imparted short quotes, much like Mark Twain and others before him.  Numbers 6 on are from the typed document from Ross Perot Cotton Sales Office in Texarkana, USA.

  3. Ross Perot to Morley Safer in 1992: “Best-kept secret in America — 1,200 private jets worth $2 billion flying government officials around. Why can’t they fly and act like we do, go to the airport, get in line, lose your luggage, eat a bad meal? Have taste of reality.”
  4. “The activist is not the man who says the river is dirty. The activist is the man who cleans up the river.” The general public of Trump Supporters need to make sure they come out and vote out all the swamp creatures, and be the respected activists who clean up the filthy swamp in DC, and get rid of the GOP critters infesting it.
  5. “I knew Ross Perot since I was a child, when he let my friends and I ride our bikes across his estate to save time to school. When “tax cuts” was the billionaire mantra, he told me he was happy to pay lots in taxes “because it means I’m doing well.” His wisdom will be missed.
