According to Politcio.com he is known as the boogeyman of the conservatives. They dread to hear his name spoken. They hate to see his face. Most of all, they fear his money and his influence. His name is George Soros and he strikes fear into Republicans everywhere.Many Republicans have come to fear of George Soros because he stands for everything they hate. He stands for equality, he stands for prosperity for all, he stands tall for leftist ideas, and he stands up for the little guy.George Soros knows what it is like to be the little man with big dreams. He left his own country of Hungary for London, England to achieve big dreams. He attended the London School of Economics, according to Forbes.com. While there, he worked as a waiter. He also took up a job as a railroad porter. He worked just as hard as any working man before he made his fortune.
According to Forbes.com, after gaining his degree in economics, Soros went to Wall Street and began a hedge fund known as Quantum Funds. This he started with around $12 million. He has done pretty good for himself sine Forbes.com puts him at the 22nd richest man in the world at a whopping $25 billion. Republicans thought he would become a greedy rich man like them. They were wrong.While many in the 1% really only look out for so-called “number one”, Soros looks out for the world. His mindset spans the globe, and so do his donations. Through his own non-profit, Open Society Foundations, Soros has donated a king’s ransom totaling some $13 billion. He has given this money to economically deprived countries, in hopes that he could stimulate growth, so that they could be prosperous and free.
Soros takes pride in helping these countries and its citizens in finding a better life. For example, he has given over $99 million to education, $25 million to journalism so that these countries could enjoy the right of free speech, $81 million to human rights, and $21 million to higher education so that these people could be empowered to help their own country.Here at home, Soros has continued to make a difference. According to Politico.com, Soros has begun funding the leftist non-profits that have caused the Republicans to go running. These non-profts include things like; Black Lives Matter, UltraViolet, Color of Change, and many more.During the last election season, according to Politico, many corporations backed away from donating to the Democratic Party. Soros filled the void, and though the Democratic Party lost the House and the Senate, it was because of Soros that the Senate remained as tight as it is today.
