He was always willing to give back to the people, and he did a lot more to better the lives of the poor and less privileged than the Colombian government ever has. Coming from a background of poverty, he knew how tough life was for the poor and always shared his money and wealth with the community. Escobar made sure everyone in his community was taken care of, and he was able to accomplish the task of providing work and shelter for the ones that were in need of jobs or residence. Even to this day, Escobar is referred to as “The Godfather” or “Robin Hood” by his people because of the invaluabe contributions he has made for the society. For example, he constructed numerous housing projects so that everyone at least had a place to live. He is also responsible for establishing and funding soccer teams and leagues in Colombia and building countless number of churches, hospitals, and schools across the country and advocating education for the children.

To bad Dallas Texas is pretty much a DEMOCRATICALLY RUN CITY. You know, Democrats, who love to tax #. Seriously. Look at Dallas Wikipedia profile. The county judge, 3/4 commisioners, sheriff and the TAX ASSESSOR and COMMISIONER are ALL DEMOCRATIC.
