Remember him? Well he died. He was 89.

Ross Perot, the wiry Texas gadfly who made a fortune in computer services, amazed the nation with audacious paramilitary missions to Vietnam and Iran, and ran for president in 1992 and 1996 with populist talk of restoring Norman Rockwell’s America, died on Tuesday at his home in Dallas. He was 89.

The cause was leukemia, a family spokesman, James Fuller, said.

Bush hated that guy with a passion. Lol Cost him the 1992 election because he took about 19% of the votes from him.

I watched a video recapping Perot's life and he was similar to Trump but a couple decades too early.

The guy was saying things in the 90s about NAFTA, immigration, health care that seem prophetic now. Many people laughed at him at the time but he was right.

Who knows what would have happened if my fellow Americans had been smarter at the time.
