If you want to consider the 2016 Presidential Race some sort of film then we’d merely embrace it as the opening act. After the election of Donald Trump one thing is abundantly clear: the political powerhouses that have kept the United States on point and in the right hands are back and ready to fight for what is right. That’s right, noted billionaire progressive George Soros has re-emerged as a staunch advocate for human rights, social justice, and economic equality. Soros’ return to the political machine came as a surprise to many of his progressive backers after the noted philanthropist had decided to step away. However, the threat posed by President Trump was simply too great for him to ignore.
A brief introduction to George Soros is in order for anyone who may not understand the full importance of his political return. Soros is by far one of the most successful investors to ever step foot in the United States. Soros is a Hungarian Born, New York resident. Soros has a long and storied history that could be made right into a film and most people would be cheering him on. Soros work is far more important than what he has just done for his investors and his bottom line. In fact, Soros is one of the most renowned philanthropists on the planet — something we’ll get more into here in a little bit. But with this brief introduction in place, we can focus on why Soros’ return is so important. Read more about George’s life story at biography.com.
George Soros rose to political fame when he backed Al Gore in his Presidential bid against the incumbent George W. Bush. Of course this election became contentious and to this day the results are still not accepted by many. With that said, Soros made himself a global player in the progressive game. Soros put his money where his mouth was and made it abundantly clear that he was ready to help lead the progressive cause forward. Still, Soros knew that he didn’t want money to influence politics and he thus took a relative back seat, until the November Election. Learn more on Discover the Networks about George Soros.
Soros knew that a President Trump could be disastrous for the United States so he made sure to put his chips in behind Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton. Clinton obviously did not win the election but her ability to bring George Soros out into the mainstream again could have long ranging effects for years to come. Soros is now working hand in hand with other top flight progresses in order to ensure that the world continues spinning, despite whatever regressive agenda President Trump might put forth.
A great example of Soros and his philanthropy is the Open Society Foundations. This is Soros’ huge philanthropic endeavor that has helped hook up progressive causes around the world with the money that they need to succeed. A great example is how the Ferguson Protests utilized funding from George Soros in order to get their message of equality out to the world in an era where people aren’t as inclined to listen.
