George Soros Backs All the Dreamers
I have heard that it was said, “Philanthropists are God’s gift to dreamers.” I believe this is true because it is those who have accumulated both riches and generous hearts that are able to help fund the dreams of others. George Soros is that a generous philanthropists.Forbes.com places his wealth and net worth at a hefty $25 billion. With all this money at his disposal, it is no wonder he has decided to give away large lump sums of cash to make dreams a reality.In 2004, John Kerry had the dream to go and become the next president of the United States of America. Seeing that Kerry had the ambition and drive, according to Politico.com, Soros backed his campaign and funded him the record breaking donation of $27 million. Although Kerry did not beat George W. Bush in that election, Kerry did use that momentum to become Secretary of State underneath the Obama Administration.Four years later, Soros funded another dreamer, Barrack Hussein Obama, who became America’s first black president, showing that we have come very far since our days of slavery.
Two hundred years ago rich white men kept blacks out of politics. Now, two hundred years later, a rich white man named George Soros was helping to put a black man in the White House.Eight years later, Soros would fund another dreamer, someone who dreamed of being the first woman to become president of the United States of America, Hillary Clinton. During her campaign season, Soros donated over $25 million to her and other like-minded Democrats. Though she lost her presidential bid, because of Soros she remains highly influential and a force to be reckoned with.As one may notice, all of Soros’ donations tend to go to people who want to directly help what we call the “little guy”, the workers, the people who make America run.
This passion to help the little guy probably stems from the fact that Soros was not always the hedge tycoon we now see.George Soros began his life in the European country of Hungary. Forbes.com says that after this he moved to London, England. It was there in the United Kingdom at the London School of Economics that Soros acquired the knowledge necessary to build the wealth he now has.Soros was not handed this schooling on a silver platter. Soros had to work for everything he has achieved and to bust his hump to pay for his education in London. Soros took on the occupation of both a waiter and also a railroad porter. Working off the sweat of his brow like every other normal man was how Soros achieved success as much as he has.
