George Soros Embraces Role as Progressive Leader

To the vast majority of political junkies in the world George Soros is a name that does not need to be followed with an introduction. However, every day people who don’t scrounge the latest political news may not know just how full of impact the man has been to the United States political machine and the role of progressive values in the United States and abroad. George Soros is a Hungarian born New Yorker who has spent the better part of his life working toward bringing democratic values to places all around the world and even in his adopted home, the United States. Soros is a staunch progressive, a self made billionaire, and someone who has vowed to stand against President Donald Trump’s caustic and dangerous campaign promises.

George Soros was likely watching from the sidelines in horror when Donald Trump was handed the keys to the Republican party back during the 2016 Presidential Election. Trump was a reality show TV star who inherited his wealth from his father and was known as much for getting sued as he was for ‘business’. To make matters worse, Trump bought in wholesale to a brand of violent, deranged nationalism that hearkens back to the ’40s in Germany — something with which George Soros has firsthand experience. Seeing Trump take the lead in the Presidential election was enough to get Soros up and out, back into the arena in order to take up the progressive fight.

George Soros got back into politics in order to stand against Trump’s dangerous brand of rhetoric. A lifelong progressive, and someone who has donated nearly $12 billion in charity through the Open Society Foundations, Soros knows the power of a well placed campaign contribution. Let’s face it, America’s right wing political party is the group of billionaires. Democrats and progressives don’t often have a chance to outspend their opponents, but every dollar helps. Soros’ returned to politics in time to boost Hillary Clinton’s political action committees with nearly $25 million in contributions.

These contributions went toward a litany of different objectives that the progressive party embraced, including immigrant rights, voting rights for Americans everywhere, and more. Soros own adviser, Michael Vachon, said that “This year the political stakes are exceptionally high.”Returning to politics may look like a no brainer to outside viewers but it wasn’t an easy decision for George Soros. Soros has largely stepped aside from the wider national elections in order to focus his work on the small local elections. His focus has always been to generate passion in the people in order to embrace their rights and fight for their own future. Coming back to the national stage was a big step and it bodes well for the progressive party.

It Has Never Been More Urgent To End Citizen’s United

What is the biggest threat to the United States?

 

Among the many political issues that concern America at this time, there are none so urgent as the drive to end Citizen’s United. As the 2016 election clearly showed, big money in politics is still a powerhouse that can swing an election and subvert the will of the people. So long as corporations have the ability to spend without limits there will be no limit to how many politicians they can buy and how many policies they can shape in their favor. This cannot stand. It endangers the right to self-determination and puts the integrity of the political system in the utmost jeoparty.

 

The Supreme Court decision in Citizen’s United was one of the biggest disasters in the history of American democracy. Wrongfully characterizing unlimited political funding as free speech, it promoted a fallacy based on another fallacy that “corporations are people.” It, in essence, legalized bribery and further corrupted a political system that was already disproportionately swayed by special interests and lobbyists. This disaster becomes more dire with every passing day, and big money continues its infiltration of government at the highest levels.

 

The current administration is bound and determined to only nominate future supreme court justices who are in lockstep with corporate interests and have a blind spot concerning the danger that big money poses to representative government in the United States. With a Republican majority in both houses, there is nothing to stop another corporate crony from being nominated and affirmed as each justice retires from the bench. In the next 8 years, 3 or 4 such justices may be nominated, assuring that the court will be in the pocket of the corporations for decades to come.

 

What can be done? Resistance is the aim of the upstart grassroots movement End Citizen’s United, a Political Action Committee (PAC) determined to fight fire with fire and take the same fundraising shenanigans that the Citizen’s United decision enables and use it to turn the tide against special interests and corporations by supporting candidates that favor overturning the decision

 

Year to date, End Citizen’s United already has accumulated a war chest of over 4 million dollars and counting. At the current pace of fundraising, the organization projects a $35 million fund to support the candidates who will fight against big money in politics and take the fight to the halls of congress. Money alone will not stop the threat of big money in politics, but the collective political action of End Citizen’s United is just the beginning of a resistance that will take back the nation for the average person and wrest the political system out of the hands of the corporations.
