www.bbc.co.uk...

well here is an interesting character if i have ever seen one,the president of Uruguay, he is a man of the common people and what an absolute legend...

he gives 80% of his wage to charity,lives in a small house well away from the presidential palace and avidly speaks out against consumerism and globalism.....

He must be the only man in power that has this view....he actually wants change that benefits the majority instead of the few ....the world as we know it needs more people like him in the spotlight....

he spent years in prison before getting this position..obviuosly giving him plenty of time to think about what itis that is important....how to go from prison to president i am not sure...... but either way at least half of the populace in his country support him.......

It's nice to see this.
Unfortunately, for the rest of the planet, politics is the standard easy street road to wealth and power.

Wow... EVERY elected representative should read this and take note. The time is coming when this needs to be considered as a constitutional amendment... require them all to live in medium income neighborhoods. Make sure they have to wave to their constituents every day on the way to work. The poorest neighborhoods would be too dangerous from a practical standpoint... but make sure they have to at least drive through them... get them down off of their lofty perches for awhile...

Serious S&F

Truly revolutionary

I hope he does still understand that as a head of state he still needs protection.

Especially if he starts getting attention for his "radical" approach to governmental management.

The other "managers" might start thinking he is making them look bad...

The guy was shot 6 times and did 14 years in a horrible prison. Some people just have balls, my respects to this man.

Ah, if only the people in Mexico would remember the times when those before us has balls to.

I wish for men like this in my country. Men like him and those past like Lázaro Cárdenas.

If anyone is interested take a look at this video, they show why Mexico's oil is of the people. Now, more than ever as they try to privatize it, the people of Mexico need some balls.



It's in English...

I would say he sounds like the richest president. Rich is humility, and the wisdom to know how distracting weath can be from what a leaders job should be all about - connecting to the people.
