The Giant Sucking Sound is Still Echoing 24 Years Later

The last time a billionaire ran for president in the United States it was Ross Perot, both in 1992 and then again in 1996. I voted for him each time, and certainly helped get Clinton elected the first time around.

Listen to the short clip in one of  the 1992 debates. Perot warns us that we HAVE TO STOP shipping jobs into other countries.

What has changed?

The Giant Sucking Sound started in 1992, and 24 years later it’s still echoing in the empty factories in Detroit, and Cleveland, and Buffalo, and Rochester, and Syracuse and Toledo.

The billionaires, both Perot and Trump, I must admit, do understand the immense damage this is doing to our nation.

We have got to stop the sucking.
