Perot was an early tech entrepreneur. He started his career in sales at IBM, where he excelled. In 1962, he founded his first company, Electronic Data Systems, with just $1,000 in savings. More than two decades later, he launched information technology services provider Perot Systems, which was acquired in 2009 by Dell for $3.9 billion.

 

Quote

In his final interview with the Dallas News in 2016, Perot shrugged off a question about his legacy, saying “Aw, I don’t worry about that.”

 

His parting words in that interview, however, were well-considered:  “Texas born. Texas bred. When I die, I’ll be Texas dead. Ha!”

His free trade deals and self-funded campaign, in my eyes, was Trump before Trump (plus at that time, Trump was more socially liberal as was Perot's ticket).

The best line was when he was asked about his 50 cent gas tax. I've timestamped it, but it begins at 26:00 and ends at 26:11.

One of the best summaries of Ross Perot's life is by the guys from The Dollop. Ross Perot stuff starts at 11:30 in the video below. Get ready to laugh and despair.

I mean, he was Trump before Trump. He was in a nicer package, though.
