The Liberal Billionaire, George Soros

The World War Two was a dark moment for the world, but it was darkest for the Jewish Community. The Nazi Regime under Hitler was bad enough for the world, but the Jewish people felt the blunt most. The Nazi yearned to spill Jewish blood, and they did. They even invaded the place the most generous man was born, just to kill him and his kind, all Hungarian Jews. They did manage to put 500,000 Jews to death, but they actions did not deny the world a liberal billionaire that has come out strongly to fight forces that seek to oppress and persecute others for their identity. They failed to kill George Soros, most members of his family and other Jews who had been lucky enough to be in association or mere contact with the Soros family. They managed to use their fortunes to make fake documents that sealed their Jewish identities thus saving their lives. Read more on nytimes.com

Today, George Soros is a billionaire and effectively, according to tax reports, one of America’s most generous men in all of history. Having donated over 12 billion dollars to noble causes, most of a Liberal agenda, it still seems incredible that this man has managed to remain an influential world business dealer, an opinion maker at the Democratic Party and an economic force that oppressive regimes have had to reckon with globally. George Soros has always remained a believer in peaceful assertion and has been reported to be strategic in his calculated political and business moves. Just less than two decades after his ascent into wealth, he earned himself a sensational and legendary title as the Man Who Broke the Bank of England. He did so by earning himself and his associates a profit of one billion dollars in just one day by buying and selling the British Pound.

Initially, George Soros’ Liberal agenda was hidden behind educational funding, but it later came to be more pronounced and assertive. He started by offering scholarships for South Africans who were essential for the fight against the Apartheid Regime. Then, he funded the introduction of the Critical Thinking to the Communist Eastern Block and the reprinting of texts which had been banned by the Soviet Regime for being too Liberal. He ended up being an outright human rights activist and an avid subscriber to the Democratic Party. Read his profile at Forbes.

The Ferguson Protests

An extra-judicial killing of an unarmed 18-year-old Black American boy sparked a violent reaction by members of the Black Community in Ferguson who were not very amused by the racial profiling to which they had been subjected. The narrative almost lost form and audience with the nasty way the protests had sparked out initially. However, George Soros quickly mobilized resources and people to sound the grievances and call the government to hold police officers responsible for their actions. He donated 33 million dollars that were instrumental in paying for national bus rides that ferried activists. The money also coordinated academic scripting to make cases against police brutality. Also, journalistic lobby groups were empowered to coordinate the massive national social media concerted into the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag.

In addition to flooding the political scene with blood money, this law also gave PACs immense power. The group certainly means business and so far it has managed to mobilize more than 320,000 people into signing a petition to Congress to pass the law.

The reform group aims at backing candidates who will push for the repeal of existing financial laws. As it is this agenda is mostly being pushed by Democrats and not Republicans.

However, the group has managed to mobilize many people and it has received more than 135,000 donations.

 

About End Citizens United:

 

End Citizens United is a group that aims to lobby for the repeal of the legislature that touches on the launch of super PAC and support of political candidates.The name End Citizens United comes from the 2010 American Supreme Court case that stated the Citizens United decision. The reform group never accepts never accepts large donations.

 

This refers to contributions which don’t exceed five thousand dollars from any single person. However, this did not by any chance prevent the group from raising a significant amount of money during fundraising that they held in 2016. This catapulted them to among the highest contributors of the Democratic political race contributions in the most recent American elections.

 

The group is also active in the grassroots level and it has managed to secure an average contribution of slightly past 14 dollars.End Citizens United has been very active in its campaign and it has managed to collect over four million dollars this year. In addition to this, the reform group has projected that it will be able to fundraise up to 35 million dollars before the 2018 midterm elections.

How End Citizens United Is Taking On Dirty Money In Politics

Vociferous political activists, End Citizens United have made a significant step towards abolishing dirty money from the political arena. In the first quarter of the year, the PAC amassed a collection worth $4 million, which itself is a substantial percentage of the estimated total that is $35 million. This amount is expected to have reached the approximated target in time for the biennial midterm elections, which are to be held next year. Should the goal be achieved, the activist committee would have broken a previously set record of $25 million, accomplished in last year’s general elections.

 

The group’s efforts have wowed numerous individuals, as demonstrated by the huge number of donors towards the cause. An estimated 100,000 people contributed in the fundraisers, with a massive 40% being first-time donors. This information was laid bare by Tiffany Muller, the committee’s chief executive. She further stated that the organizations objective was to support the election of finance reform champions to Congress.

 

Moreover, Tiffany revealed that the average donation per individual had soared considerably, hitting a mean of $12. Muller added that the givers saw the contribution as the most efficient way of voicing their grievances and fighting the uninhibited pumping of money towards political campaigns. Further, Tiffany expressed the fury of the Democrats towards the election of Donald Trump and said that they were ready to give him a hard time by opposing his incentives and not endorsing his nominees.

 

One of the most important achievements of the PAC is the endorsement of Jon Ossoff, who is vying for a Congress seat for the first time on a Democrat ticket. In this campaign, End Citizens United has persuaded its sympathizers to donate an enormous $500,000. To date, Ossoff has raised a mammoth $4 million, a figure that has left many in awe as he is still a novice in politics.

 

Though the group is still undecided on who it will support in next year’s Senatorial elections, significant pointers show that it leans towards Democratic candidates. As a conventional PAC, End Citizens United has a maximum donation which it can accept from an individual ($5,000).
