People who tend to go to power all think about who to get their bellies full. nobody dislikes money but you will be shocked by the poorest president in the world lifestyle. His name is Jose Mujica, president of Uruguay since 2010.
He donates 90 percent of his $12,000 salary to the poor and less privileged.seriously is people in this world behave like this man, the world could have been beautiful place than now. This man does not care about how he dresses, expensive lifestyle or driving in big vehicles because he has more important things to care, the people who elected him.He drives a 1987 blue Volkswagen Beetle, and lives in a small country house with his wife and three-legged dog.
“We invented this thing called representative democracy, where we say the majority is who decides,” Mujica said in the interview. “So it seems to me that we [heads of state] should live like the majority and not like the minority.”
“I’m not against people who have money, who like money, who go crazy for money,” Mujica said. “But in politics we have to separate them. We have to run people who love money too much out of politics, they’re a danger in politics… People who love money should dedicate themselves to industry, to commerce, to multiply wealth. But politics is the struggle for the happiness of all.”
He however disagrees that he is poorest president and said one of the most inspiring statements.
He says, “I’m not the poorest president. The poorest is the one who needs a lot to live… My lifestyle is a consequence of my wounds. I’m the son of my history. There have been years when I would have been happy just to have a mattress.”
He also claims that a lot of money will rob him of the time he uses to enjoy his passions, like tending to his flower farm and working outside.
The president has shown to the world that to be a leader is to serve and not to make stomach full.
