Let me be me. That’s what I tell people close to me, including my staff.

I want everything spontaneous. I like things to develop naturally.

While I recognize its political value, I don’t go for orchestrated scenarios, e.g. “hakots” in rallies, rehearsed public pronouncements. I don’t ever want to impose on people.

I dislike being told or coached what to say and how to project myself before an audience.

I say what I want to say and say it straight. I don’t go around the bush. I don’t patronize and pull people’s legs. I don’t have a politician’s tongue.

I want people to see always my true self and accept me for what I am, and not an artificial, bloated or sanitized image of myself.

I believe in sincerity, not hypocrisy; in authenticity, not fakery.
