Джимми Картер - последний народный президент

Former President Jimmy Carter might have once called the white mansion at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue his home, but now, he lives in a much, much more modest abode.
Carter, the nation’s 39th president and oldest-living former president in U.S. history at 94 years old, lives a fairly normal — and frugal — life, according to The Washington Post. In fact, Carter still lives in the ranch house he built himself in 1961.
The home, in rural Plains, Georgia (about a 2½-hour drive south of Atlanta) is a two-bedroom ranch assessed at just $167,000, which is “less than the value of the armored Secret Service vehicles parked outside,” the Post reports. It’s also less than the median home price in Georgia, which is $175,300, according to real estate site Zillow.
In addition to his affordable home, Carter’s frugal tendencies include spending weekends dining with neighbors on paper plates with bargain-brand wine, the Post says. In addition, it says he and wife Rosalynn make their own yogurt. Carter has also been known to buy his clothes at his local Dollar General store, according to a 2011 Rolling Stone story (he showed up for the store’s opening in Plains in 2004), and he often flies commercial, recently shaking hands with passengers on a Delta flight from Atlanta to D.C. in June.

Джимми Картер, 39 президент США, до сих пор живет в маленьком доме, который он построил САМ, своими руками (он до сих пор дома строит соседям, ему 94, если что). Домик стоит 167 тысяч, в то время как "демократы" Клинтон и Обама приобрели дома за миллионы долларов. Картер летает обычными самолетами с обычными людьми, хотя ему полагается государственная субсидия на такие перелеты. Президент покупает свою одежду в локальных магазинах и при этом очень активен - написал более 40 книг. Он - реально верующий человек, который понимает, что в гробу карманов нет и помогает малоимущим при своей церкви.
Где теперь найти таких президентов??
