Maybe. Bush hurt himself with the "read my lips" lie.

I remember being told I was wasting my vote/handing the election to Clinton. Knowing everything I do now, I'd vote Perot again.
He was Trump, before Trump, in many ways. But the media, in concert with both parties, successfully torpedoed any real chance Ross had. And he still pulled in 19% of the vote.

There would be less of a swamp for Trump to drain if Perot had won.

System is and always will stacked against a 3rd party candidate - doesn't matter who he or she is. Voting for a 3rd party candidate is everyone's right. But that doesn't alter the fact that you are throwing your vote away. If you want to be relevant in a Presidential election, realistically you have 2 choices.

RIP Mr. Perot... I admired his unique individualism.

Might be less swamp to drain had Bush the elder won, but this is for another forum. RIP Ross!

Just went through all these and no mention of Amy Winehouse! Another 'member' of Club 27. Kurt Cobain, Jimmy Hendrix and, I think, Janis Joplin are other 'members'.

Well then, it would be fiction for me.

Never saw that.

But I saw Nighthawks.

"There is no security"
This was my favorite Rutger Hauer movie as well. Stallone actually did a fine job, too. Billy Dee? He was just his pretty self. :laugh:
