Books, Community, and Love: MEET JOSE MUJICA G CONNECTING CONSCIOUSNESS Jose is the president of Uruguay. He drives a 1987 Volkswagen Beetle, donates 90% of his salary to charity every month ($12,500), keeps only $1,250 and is considered "the world's poorest president" "I'm called the poorest president, but I don't feel poor. Poor people are those who only work to try to keep an expensiue lifestyle, & always want more." Now this is someone who stands with the people! Donating nearly 90% of his income to the people of his community. Man that is what a real leader does. They don’t build mega homes, fly private jets, create massive amounts of waste and increase their carbon footprint. They live simple, their love is unconditional (you don’t have to be a member) and their actions move mountains. Man i could only imagine the ripple effect this individual would have here in the states. I wonder how many billion aids would give up their ridiculous status and help out humanity. I wonder how the history books would be written after we humbled ourselves and started to act like a collective consciousness - community.
