“Put your money where your mouth is” is an old saying that simply means to back up your actions and/or beliefs with your funding. George Soros is a man who really lives out this idiom. He is a liberal financier with his own philanthropy organization called Open Society Foundations. This organization is used by Soros to make billions of dollars in contributions to various political and social groups that support the liberal agenda. Soros fund these groups all over the world. He wants to ensure that democracy and freedom reign supreme throughout the world. Soros champions what he calls “open societies”. An open society is one where people have the right to vote, worship as they please and to compete against each other within free markets.
The work that Open Society Foundations perform is vital for helping societies to stay free and engaged. In October of 2017, George Soros transferred a whopping $18 billion dollars to his agency. This is one of the largest transfers of wealth to a philanthropic organization by a private donor. This amount of money is so staggering that it could literally fund thousands of political and social organizations for numerous years.Soros has been active in the realm of politics starting in the early 2000s. While he was always involved in this field throughout the course of his life, he did not immerse himself into the political arena until the 2004 Presidential Election between George W. Bush and John Kerry. Bush won that election despite of Soros’ contribution. The democratic supporter felt the sting of Kerry’s defeat but he did not give up. Soros dug his heels in and began to provide more financing to support Obama in 2008. This time around his effort paid off. It also paid off once again in 2012 when Obama took the office again. In 2016 Soros funded Hilary Clinton’s run for the White House but Donald Trump gained the victory.
Soros is now working over time to thwart President Trump’s agenda for America and the world. Many social and political organizations are also funded by Soros. He stands behind these organizations because they are important for keeping the conservative agenda in check.Organizations that support civil rights, transgender laws and same sex marriage bills are also endorsed by Soros. Keep in mind that Soros does not necessarily agree with every liberal organization’s cause. However, he supports many of them because they have the right to live as they choose. Soros’s contribution to his own organization ensures that it will be well funded into the future. Many social and political groups stand behind Soros in his effort to support the left. They know that his contributions are essential for their function and relevancy within society.
