Money is power. There is no need to deny it. All of us know that there is truth to the adage that money makes the world go round. In America, this is true because, ultimately, candidates and politicians need vast amounts of money to get elected or re-elected. This requires them to ally themselves with the wealthy. Once this alliance occurs, the rich become influencers. Perhaps nobody understands this more than George Soros.
George Soros is a dedicated enemy of the right and has been an ever-present pain in the neck to the GOP. This is because he is one of the richest men in the world with a net worth, which he accumulated from the Soros Fund Management, of $25.2 billion, and he uses that money to push for extreme leftist agendas.
George Soros looks to affect policies by employing his army of lobbyists. His lobbyists have advocated for things such as gay marriage, LGBTQ rights, women’s rights, job equality, and safe places. His lobbyists can be found aiding in almost every single Democrat’s campaign and headquarters. Follow him on Twitter: https://twitter.com/georgesoros
In addition to using his money to affect policy change, he also uses his money to put people who are close to him in power. In the year 2004, George Bush had the presidency and was running for re-election, and as anyone who follows politics at all knows, the incumbent holds the advantage. Bush had already led us into a war with Afghanistan and Iraq. Soros saw this and many more right policies being implemented and knew he had to get George out of the White House. Soros then committed a record-breaking amount of money. Soros gave to the DNC and in turn the Kerry campaign, $27 million. Unfortunately, Soros found out that George Bush had the advantage and Kerry lost that election.
Another time when Soros tried to influence who was in office was in the year 2008. At this time both Obama and Clinton were running for the Primary, and they were neck in neck. They both approached Soros for a donation. Soros was stuck in a hard place. He was a longtime friend to the Clintons but he also saw that Obama had the people in the palm of his hand. He decided to back Obama, and with this considerable fund behind him, he won the presidency.
In addition to politics, George Soros uses his money to spread leftist ideals throughout the world through his life-changing non-profit Open Society Foundation. The Open Society Foundation exists to build flourishing democracies that are known for their tolerance and openness. This tolerance is shown in respect for human rights, especially for minorities and women, as well as to ensure that policies are fair for all people involved.
Here in America, Open Society Foundation has been behind groups such as Black Lives Matter, the Women’s Rights March the day after Trump’s inauguration, and also MoveOn.org.
George Soros has influenced this world so that the left’s ideal would spread.
