Bring Your Questions for Ross Perot

No, you are not imagining things. This is the Q&A-with-elder-statesmen-who’ve-made-unorthodox-but-splashy-runs-for-
president season.


We just finished up with Ron Paul. Now it’s Ross Perot‘s turn. Perot ran for president in 1992 as an independent candidate, winning 19 percent of the vote; he ran in 1996 on the Reform Party ticket, winning 8 percent of the vote.

These days, he is focusing on the budget deficit with his new site, which uses charts and graphs to explain the nation’s debt. He told The Dallas Morning News:

I wanted something Forrest Gump could understand.

Besides his political activities, of course, Perot also founded two successful technology-services companies: Electronic Data Systems (sold to General Motors in 1984) and Perot Systems, of which he is currently chairman emeritus of the board.

Perot has agreed to field your questions, so fire away. Hopefully he will reward us with his trademark candor, and maybe some giant sucking sounds. As with past Q&A’s, we’ll post his answers in a few days.

Addendum: Perot answers your questions here.
