If you want to survive in the world of politics, then you need to be a mover and shaker. You need to carry yourself well and have clout and influence to affect good and worthy change. Some of these people that hold such power are not even politicians, but rather are everyday people working through nonprofits to change the world as we know it. A great example of this is George Soros.
George Soros is known by everybody in the world for his passion for the Democratic message. He has been a Democrat ever since going through the London School of Economics. He was a Democrat when he entered the United States of America in order to start the Soros Fund Management right here in a free market. And he was a passionate Democrat when he amassed a staggering net worth that Forbes.com reports is at $25.2 billion. George Soros is still a passionate Democrat and flexes his financial muscles to help the Democratic Party achieve the change it desires.
George Soros opened the Open Society Foundations in order to help democracy here in the United States of America and also fledgling democracies found all over the globe. The Open Society Foundations was started with an $11 billion donation from George Soros himself. Since then, many other philanthropists have come through and donated billions of dollars to struggling democracies. George Soros himself gave an additional $18 billion in 2017 to help Open Society Foundations as it spreads the message of LGBTQ rights, women’s rights, and immigration rights.
The United States of America has seen just how powerful the Open Society Foundations is. George Soros has used it to donate heavily to the Democratic Party beginning in 2004. When George Soros first began donating to Democratic Party, Republicans had brought us into two needless wars. We were fighting in both the countries of Iraq and Afghanistan. George Soros longed for peace the middle east and knew it would never occur if we were continuing to rage war there. He thought the best way to stop war was to put a Democrat in the White House. Because of this belief, John Kerry was the beneficiary of the record-breaking donation of $27 million.
In 2008, George Soros did all he could to put Obama in the White House. If he thought George W. Bush was bad, he knew that John McCain was worse. When he heard Obama give his first speech, George Soros knew this man with a golden tongue would be what was needed to help America see change and embrace liberal democracy.
In 2016, George Soros saw backlash from the American people. While it is true that Obama was able to push liberal change which the younger generations accepted, all the older generations turned their back on him and voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election. George Soros now uses the Open Society Foundations to fund Donald Trump’s enemies on the ground and stop his oppressive policies.
