George Soros and the Tireless March for Progressive Values

The political landscape within the United States has been changing dramatically over the past couple of years. Nowadays there is a larger divide between right and left than ever before, exacerbated by the controversial election of now President Trump. President Trump’s 2016 election campaign was so divisive, in fact, that it even pulled billionaire progressive George Soros back into the fold. Soros is probably most well known for his work alongside Al Gore during the 2004 Presidential Election run against George W. Bush. Soros had ultimately decided to scale back his funding after that election campaign — until now. Now, Soros sees President Trump as a personal threat to the very tenants of democracy and progressive values.

George Soros leaped right into the election fray last year when he decided to get in and start supporting Hillary Clinton alongside a plethora of other democratic candidates. Soros would end up spending close to $25 million over the campaign season in order to push progressive values down the ballot. Ultimately Trump would end up ‘winning’ the Presidency despite losing the popular vote. Unlike his experience with Al Gore, George Soros has decided instead to double down and work tirelessly to ensure that progressive values and democratic ideals stay strong in America.

We can look back for years throughout the United States political landscape to see that George Soros has kept his hands ever so slightly in on things that matter to him. Soros personally has helped to fund networks of grassroots campaigns throughout the country thanks to his work with the Open Society Foundations. One such instance of this is when Soros helped to fund the Ferguson protests in order to shed some light on police brutality toward minority individuals. Michael Brown’s death, at the hands of Officer Wilson, was a divisive moment in our history as a nation. Without Soros’ help funding the grassroots activism, we likely never would have found out that the Ferguson police department had a routine practice of discriminating against certain races.

Kenneth Zimmerman, the director of the Open Society Foundations, said that “Our DNA includes a belief that having people participate in government is indispensable to living in a more just, inclusive, democratic society.” Zimmerman’s words could not be truer if they came out of George Soros mouth himself. Soros and his work establishing these grassroots campaigns might just be the difference maker in elections and midterms in the coming years.

George Soros has a tried and true history of paying attention to those in needs. George Soros has personally invested millions in charities and philanthropic endeavors around the world. His tireless work toward progressive ideals and social justice has been plenty matched by his financial contributions. Know more about George Soros on Investopedia.

The Stunningly Positive Tale of Famous Person X

I am going to tell you the life story of a controversial figure in American pop culture. This person is 86 years old and was born into a Jewish family in 1930. The problem is that this person was born Jewish. The Nazis came to occupy Budapest, Hungary, as this person turned into a teenager. This famous figure then had to watch as more than 500,000 Hungarian Jews would lose their lives during the Holocaust.

This person’s father was smart. The patriarch of the family moved quickly when he saw that Nazis were poised to take the country. He liquidated everything that the family had in order to afford false identification. He was able to hide everybody’s identity during the occupation and the family survived.

This made the family refugees at the conclusion of the war. In 1947, the family moved to London where our person of interest would attend the London School of Economics. This pop-culture icon would work their way through college taking odd jobs and eventually landing a job at a merchant bank.

Not taking anything for granted after experiencing World War II on mainland Europe, this person got busy gaining experience and whipping up $12 million in order to open up a hedge fund on Wall Street. This person then became an immigrant to the United States where they would gain worldwide fame as they grew that $12 million into a $25 billion personal wealth.

This person is George Soros. He is the liberal leaning billionaire that donates much of his money to charity and liberal organizations. Fox News and right-wing pundits seem to make an enemy out of this man despite his life story. The man even gets more likable as time goes on.

In 1979, George Soros founded the Open Society Foundation. His goal was to help those suffering under communist governments that fell during the Cold War. The Open Societies Foundation would move in to help citizens with the transition towards democracy. With the help of the Open Societies Foundation, communism was eventually defeated. Democracy remained. Visit Project Syndicate to learn more about George.

The Open Society Foundation has grown to become a collection of charitable organizations around the world. George Soros himself has donated more than $12 billion of his personal wealth to the good things that the Open Societies Foundation does.

The foundation does things such as fighting for women drug user rights in Indonesia and protecting innocent men from punitive petty crimes in Africa. George Soros even donated $32 million to the state of New York so that the welfare program could buy school supplies for children in need. Learn more about George at Biography.com.
