People will fall into two camps politically speaking. Although there are a few groups, such as the Libertarians, who are gaining a bit of steam, the majority of people in the United States find themselves either in the Democratic Party or the Republican Party. Of those inside one of the two predominant parties, there are those who are so far to the right or left that they strike fear into political candidates far and wide. A good example of this is George Soros.To put himself through his coursework at the London School of Economics, George worked as a rail porter and a waiter. Although he came from humble beginnings, he was eventually able to create a hedge fund, Soros Fund Management, which would bring his net worth to $25.2 billion. That kind of money wields an incredible amount of power. When power and politics intermingle, it can have astonishing effects.
George Soros, who desired to push an extreme leftist and liberal agenda, used his power to contribute millions to the Democratic Party, particularly to support John Kerry in his bid for the White House. Unfortunately for the Democratic Party, Kerry did not win.Upon witnessing Kerry’s loss, George Soros once again set about plotting ways to stop the Republican agenda. It was a toss-up between Clinton and Obama after George W. Bush left the oval office. George Soros initially chose to back the Illinois Senator, Barack Obama. After donating millions of dollars, he decided that Obama was not presenting a liberal enough agenda, and he then apologized to Clinton for abandoning her in her campaign for the Presidency.When Barack left office, George immediately decided he would support Hillary Clinton in her race for President of the United States in 2016. It shortly became apparent that Clinton and Trump would go toe to toe in the final race.
Because Soros hates Trump and everything he stands for, George Soros donated $25 million to Clinton and several other Democratic causes. He also donated $1.5 million to boost the platforms and campaigns of various democratic senators.Once the campaign was over and Trump took office, Soros decided to do everything he could to make Trump’s presidency difficult. As a sworn enemy of Donald Trump, Soros was determined to do everything within his power to make it difficult for “that mentally unstable fool” to be successful at his newly elected position. As quickly as possible, Soros began organizing several key events to try to derail the Trump presidency. As soon as Trump took office, there was a protest march sponsored and organized by Soros. The protest involved thousands of voters wearing pink hats in honor of women’s rights. This single movement sparked sister marches, and all in all, nearly 3 million people were involved in the protest around the world.George Soros has continued to do good work in the world through his non-profit, the Open Society Foundation. This foundation seeks to promote liberal causes worldwide and establish foreign democracies.
