George Soros is probably the most powerful financial backer the world has ever seen. This one-time hedge fund manager turned philanthropist has made waves throughout the political scene for the past few decades. While the Left love him the Right is terrified see him. The reason the political right is so terrified to see George Soros would he arrives is because they know multiple billions of dollars is likely going to the Democrats to change the laws in America. This earned him the nickname “bogeyman of the right.”
George Soros passionately fights for liberalism and leftism within the government of America. He has used his vast fortune to start the Open Society Foundations so that liberal policies can become a blessing to all Americans no matter whether they are from the upper class or the most impoverished class. Open Society Foundations and George Soros have been responsible for some of the greatest liberal changes here in America and abroad.
According to the website, the Open Society Foundations works in concert with governments around the world to build vibrant and tolerant democracies. These governments are accountable to their people and remain open for citizen participation. In order to make this happen, they have donated hundreds of billions of dollars to this cause. In fact, George Soros is so passionate about this that he has given $18 billion in 2017 to the Open Society Foundations. This is in addition to the $32 billion that he has given over the past several decades. The Open Society Foundations has been able to promote good democracy in hundreds of countries around the world.
The truth is though; we do not have to look around the world to see what the Open Society Foundations and George Soros have done. We can look right here within the United States of America and see the positive change he has promoted.
George Soros came to the American populace’s attention in 2004 when he broke all donating records and gave $27 million to John Kerry’s campaign. George Soros gave this kind of money because he believed that John Kerry with stop the evils that President George W. Bush was commending. Soros and his Open Society Foundations had seen firsthand the problems of the Iraq war, as well as the Afghanistan war, were creating for democracies that they were trying to institute. Soros knew that if George W. Bush continued to be president all of the work that his society had done for the middle east would go to ruin. Unfortunately, John Kerry lost the election, and President George W. Bush continued to wreak havoc on the region.
George Soros, however, would gain much ground in 2008 when he backed the senator of Illinois Barack Obama. Obama became a shining light to the American people and did more to relieve the pain in the Middle East than any president before. George Soros was proud of the various things that Barack Obama achieved during his time in the Oval Office.
