AFM reader, commenter, and friend, Tom, sent me a link this morning to Ross Perot’s website, PerotCharts.com. I like Ross Perot because I think he truly wants what’s best for the America. While browsing his website, I watched the video on the main page. Towards the end of the video Perot was asked what his three wishes for the American Public were. This is what he said:
1. A strong, moral, ethical base where people keep their commitments, do what they say they will do. That’s what we had when I grew up during the depression.
2. A strong family unit in every home so that children get the ultimate support. Sadly, we have over a 50% divorce rate now.
3. Have the finest public schools in the world. Believe it or not, we had those during the depression. Today, our public schools rank at the bottom of the industrialized world.
Imagine what this country would look like if all three of his wishes came true!
To his list I’d like to add two of my own:
Politicians who put this country first instead of those who make promises in order to get elected.
The end of lobbying!
What about you? What would your wishes for this country be?
