It is the personal mission of George Soros to use the billions of dollars he has amassed over the years to spread democracy around the world. This amazing mission is accomplished through the nonprofit he founded known as Open Society Foundations. It is the mission of Open Society Foundations to aid these struggling democracies so that they can be vibrant and strong and bless their countries with liberalism. George Soros does require that these governments remain loyal to the people and accountable to the electorate. George Soros believes in this cause so passionately that he gave $18 billion of his own money to this organization in the year 2017.
The Open Society Foundations has given over $500 billion over the last three decades to establish solid governments in nearly 100 countries. The only promote democracy, but the Open Society Foundations also advocates for human rights by supporting the organizations who speak out concerning these things.
The open society foundation has been able to donate to infrastructure, education, and other nonprofits around the globe. In order to help establish democracies, they have created offices in the Arab world, the European world, the Asian world, and also the North American world.
George Soros would use the open society foundation to get active in the North American world. He did this by financially aiding candidates to take office. It began in 2004 that George Soros decided he would be the bankroller for the John Kerry presidency. To help John Kerry win the presidency, he donated $27 million to the campaign. George Soros could not tolerate another four years of President George W. Bush and knew that this would mean four more years of war. Unfortunately, $27 million was not enough to get John Kerry into the Oval Office.
Though the candidate of George Soros lost in the 2004 election, Soros would enter the world of politics again in the year 2008. He could not decide if he wanted to choose Hillary Rodham Clinton or the Illinois Senator Barack Obama. He decided to sponsor Obama in the end because this gentleman had the skill needed to earn the heart of the American people.
Obama would serve for two different terms in the role of the presidency. During his time in the Oval Office, he would convince the American people that the democratic ideal was the best way to run America. We have seen Obama’s passion, how advocated for immigration reform, equality for men and women everywhere, and the promotion of LGBTQ rights.
While many people were excited to see these democratic ideals pushed so strongly, it ended up creating a backlash against Democrats in the election year 2016. As George Soros donated $25 million to the Clinton campaign, he began to see Trump gaining in the polls. It was not because Trump was a good candidate by any measure, it was simply that people were scared of the change it liberalism was bringing. Now he focuses on changing America’s heart for the Left.
