Soros in Philanthropy

George uses his wealth to raise the living standards of the people. He ensures that everyone gets an equal opportunity to live their dreams. When the Nazis were mistreating the Jews, Soros was there to witness. He is of the Jew origin. Currently, there are groups of people who have been neglected. These groups include the drug users, the disabled, migrants, orphaned and the minority tribes. In many cases, the minority does not have an equal chance to make an impact on the society. With his influence, Soros has spent over $12 billion to ensure that these groups get a fair life. He has equally contributed to the quality of education, especially by supporting different activities as well as poor students.

One interesting thing about George is that he does not support anything because he has the money. He considers what he is needed to support and looks at the worth. He does not seek public attention with his philanthropic work. Soros believes in honesty. He is bold when he wants something or when he is against it. He enjoys his social work, especially when interacting with the minority groups.

Influence on the American politics

Being one of the richest people in the United States, George Soros should be naturally interested in shaping the American politics. Surprisingly, he has always tried to stay clear of the political arena. He believes in the individual contribution without having to involve the politicians. In the concluded American elections, Soros played a major role for the first time in his life. He has been a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton since the two have had a long history of friendship. The friendship between Soros and Hillary has lasted for more than two decades now. Soros also believed in the ideologies of Mrs. Clinton because she has always opened her doors of consultations. For the first time in his life, he pumped $25 million to sponsor different candidates in whom he believed. Know more on businessinsider.com about George Soros.

Posted by JacobT on

End Citizens United is a political action Committee aimed at funding political campaigns. The firm was started in March 1st, 2015 and gets its donations from grassroots donors. Their main goal is to prove that the grassroots can also fight against the billionaires who are trying to rule the world. By financing these campaigns, they ensure that the elected members are not controlled by the billionaires making them dedicated to serving the citizens.

End Citizens United’s mission is to destroy and end the rigged political system and combating the Big Money in politics. By so doing, they ensure that leaders elected will overturn Citizens United, end unlimited money in politics and dark money. To attain their mission, the End Citizens United will elect pro-reform candidates, ensure that the issue of raising money in politics has been made a national priority and use the grassroots membership to demonstrate political power.

The End Citizens United supports Democrats who believe in the grassroots donors and campaigns. The aspirant must also be willing to fight and overturn Citizens United. End Citizens United support Democrats because they believe that Democrats are devoted to fighting against Citizens United. They also believe that the Democrats will bring meaningful change in the United States.

According to MSNBC End Citizens United was looking to make its name popular in the 2016’s political campaign. Its main goal was to finance a many Democrats’ aspirants running in competitive House and Senate races across the United States. During its inception in August 2015, the group had raised $2 million in small donations and was looking to get more than $30 million throughout the campaign season.

The main goal of End Citizens United was to pass a constitutional amendment to change a law passed in 2010 that allows super PACs and dark money to support and engage in politics. The number of supporters has greatly increased in the past one year. The group started by supporting 11 Democratic candidates such as former Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin among others.

Keeping in mind that no constitutional amendment has been passed since 1992, passing the amendment can turn out to be a very intriguing for the Democrats. For this to be successful, they must win the consent of from two-thirds of the Senate and the House. According to Rich Hasen, a professor of law and political science at UC-Irvine school of Law, End Citizens United must work hard to enforce an amendment as this would result in public awareness of the Supreme Court. The group believes it has to stop the PAGs and will make sure that it gets the Senate representation for the amendment to be enacted.
