Back Cover Summary Twenty-some years ago, a populist movement swept America. It was kicked off by a billionaire businessman from Texas named Ross Perot. It started on a popular television show, Larry King Live. In what seems like overnight, people across the nation responded to the call to ìwake up America,î and began collecting petitions to put this man on the ballot. This book is a story about these people and what they did to take their country back. They came from all walks of life. They learned how far it had fallen into the wrong hands. And getting it back wasnít going to be easy. This book is about a movement that laid the groundwork for todayís populism that never went away. It went underground for a while and then resurfaced as the Tea Party Movement. Now, twenty-four years later, it looks like it is coming back full steam ahead. On March 18, 1992, Ross Perot spoke at the Washington National Press Club. ìAmerica today is a nation in crisis with a government in gridlock . . . I feel as owners of this country, if weíre going anywhere, youíve got to send them a message: You work for us. We donít work for you. Under the Constitution, you are our servants. Grow up! Work as a team. Serve the people. Solve the problem. Move on to the next one. Build a better country and stop throwing away money we donít have.î
Wonderful story of the volunteers behind the Perot movement.
In 1992, Ross Perot made history when he received 19% of the vote as an independent candidate in the presidential election. Pat Muth tells the story of the volunteers behind that movement, using their own words to recreate that era. It is an era with uncanny similarity to our present. From Maine to California, business class to taking class, old and young, they created a volunteer army overnight, motivated only by service and love of country. What led them to volunteer? What where the circumstances that created the Perot movement? What did they accomplish? This is their story and how the legacy they left, laid the groundwork to "to make America great again" today.
