In the political world, there are those who carry such clout and influence that their power is felt shaking through the halls of Capitol Hill. Many of these people are well known to the average voter because they are advocating for what the public deems is right. One good example is George Soros.
George Soros has not known a day that he was not a left-leaning liberal. Ever since starting the Soros Fund Management, George Soros has dedicated his life to aiding the liberal cause. Throughout his career, he has accumulated $25.2 billion as his net worth. Nearly 30 years ago, he gave $14 billion to his nonprofit, the Open Society Foundations, to start this wonderful world changing organization. Just recently, he gave $18 billion more to the Open Society Foundations so that they could begin expanding into Asia and Africa.
The Open Society Foundations exists to empower struggling democracies who are looking to gain prominence in their area. This strengthening comes from economic aid and training of leaders. The Open Society Foundations has one rule; those in power must stay underneath the electorate. They believe that leaders must be accountable to the people. The Open Society Foundations has also been used by George Soros to affect politics here in the United States of America.
The Open Society Foundations gave the largest donation ever recorded in the year 2004. During this time, George W. Bush was up for reelection, and John Kerry was the nominee for Democratic Party. John Kerry, who was trying to unseat George W. Bush, was sagging in the polls. George Soros felt that much was at stake so he gave the Democratic Party $27 million to defeat President George W. Bush. Unfortunately, this was not enough to overcome the incumbent’s advantage.
George Soros would return to the political scene in the year 2008 when Barack Obama took office. George Soros saw in him everything he needed to push a liberal agenda. George Soros gave Obama’s campaign $15 million which helped him gain the primary from Hillary Clinton. However, after Barack Obama served for the first four years, George Soros was disappointed in him because he was not pushing a liberal enough agenda. George Soros would come to the aid of Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential run. George Soros wanted to stop Donald Trump at all costs, and he gave Hillary Clinton’s campaign $25 million. In addition to this large donation, he gave $1.5 million to several different Senators who were fighting a hard battle in purple states.
Even though Hillary Clinton would go on to lose that election, George Soros would continue fighting Donald Trump right on the ground. Through the Open Society Foundations, he organized many protests against Donald Trump and the GOP. He has also used the OSF to fund several nonprofits that hire lobbyists to stop the GOP and their bigoted demands. George Soros truly is the saving grace for liberal democracy here in the United States of America.
