Ross Perot on Families & Children

1992 & 1996 Reform Party Nominee for President


Platform of family values in 1992 election

Given the sparkling memory of his childhood and the luster of his married life, it was inevitable that he would give a lofty place to "family values" in his ragged platform. It was everybody's plan in 1992, but in Perot's case it didn't sound tinny.

Prioritize family over business

Place disadvantaged kids in government-funded homes

Perot’s record on parental rights in poor and minority homes [is that he] “advocates placing severely disadvantaged children in government-funded homes soon after birth to get them away from unstable environments.

At EDS, adultery is grounds for immediate dismissal

Perot has trumpeted his concern about “family values.” At EDS, lying, stealing, cheating, and adultery were all grounds for dismissal. Were he to be elected, he has said that the same standard would be upheld.

“If a man’s own wife cannot trust him, how can the American people? The family unit and solid ethics are the basis of America. If I could wish for one thing for our country, it would be a strong family unit. If I could wish for a second thing, it would be a strong church system.”
