George Soros’ Contribution to Political Changes in America

George Soros is a successful hedge fund manager who has made his fortune through brilliant investment decisions. The 85-year-old New Yorker billionaire has been considered as one of the most politically powerful people in the world. He has been associated with toppling several regimes from power around the world. He has also taken center stage in shaping and influencing the American politics and culture.

He has been a financial bankroller of the Democrats and the famous one being when he spent $27 million in 2004 in a bid to try and defeat President George W. Bush. However, the project wasn’t a success, and he scaled back on his political donations until recently.

George Soros was a huge supporter of Hillary Clinton, and he even committed over $25 million to support her campaign. Sources close to him also stated that Mr. Soros was more politically engaged due to his faith in Clinton and fear of Donald Trump, who he accused of instilling fear in Americans and indirectly helping ISIS. Read his profile at Forbes.

Soros made his fortune, which is estimated to be around $25 billion from risky currency exchange. His firm, Soros Fund Management is responsible for over $30 billion of client asset management.

Soros has time and time again talked about his underlying ambition of changing the way the world works. In his two books; The Alchemy of Finance and Underwriting Democracy, he stresses that he has always had childhood fantasies of changing the world. He mentioned that he has always harbored an “exaggerated view of self-importance” and saw himself as some type of god and even an economic reformer.

George Soros ambition of wanting to change the way the system works has never left him. He has used his fortune to try and influence the societies as he mentioned in an interview with The Independent that he realized at a young age that it is money and not people that make things go round.

George Soros has been a philanthropist since 1979. In 1984, he launched Open Society Foundation, the first of many aimed at building vibrant and “tolerable” democracies. He has opened over 70 Open Society Foundations around the world that are meant to promote freedom, human rights, the rule of law, social responsibility, democracy, and social justice as a universal idea.

George Soros has never shied away from donating to noble causes. He has given out hundreds of millions of dollars to different charities. Know more on businessinsider.com about George Soros.

End Citizens United Vows to Fight Back the Repealing Of the Affordable Care Act

In a shocking turn of events, a secret special political interest organization emerged and announced how it planned to ‘reward’ the Republican representatives who made the Obama Care to get thrown out. The group, American Action Network angered millions of Americans who now for the first time in their lives, found themselves, without medical cover and insurance. How could they set aside $2M to gift them for their ‘deplorable’ action? The exact number of the individuals adversely affected by the repealing of the affordable care act is said to stand at a whopping 24 million.

 

Undoing Obama’s Legacy

 

Truth be told, the problem didn’t start with the revoking of the affordable care act a few days ago. If you looked carefully, going straight to the campaigning period, all the way to the present; 100 days since Trump took over; one thing is evident. Trump came in with all intention to undo the legacy Obama had built and left while at the Oval Office. In the very first days of his tenure, Trump did in fact sign executive declarations de-legitimizing some of the decisions by his predecessor, Barrack Obama. The president must be riding high on cloud nine after scrapping off the most notable achievement of his predecessor. In essence, however, there’s still a lot of room for the motion to get turned down further up the process.

 

Power to the People, Once More

 

The people’s best chance of fighting the reign and power some few individuals and organized cartels have on the president and his inner circle is End Citizens United Inc. The unprecedented ruling by the Supreme Court in October 2010 prompted activists to take notice and respond. The rule of democracy as pictured and conjured up by the founding fathers has been completely maligned. The will of a few wealthy individuals now dictates the destiny of the remaining 99% of the population. This is not one bit fair and, in an attempt to turn the tables around to the citizen’s favor, End Citizen United got launched. From the very beginning, this organization adopted a business model which anchored on transparency and justice for all.
