Although very many politicians always thumb their chests claiming to be liberal minded, only very few of them actually follow through with the brand they choose to sell themselves. George Soros is not a politician by ambition and pursuit, but the billionaire is one of strong political persuasion. His persuasions are liberal in nature. The keen and sharp mind that is George Soros is famous for his unending financial talent. Above his ability to create wealth in areas over which he gets passionate, he is well appreciated by the global community for his outstanding contribution to humanity and the freedom that humans always crave but are sometimes denied.
As a child in Hungary, George Soros went through religious and ethnic persecution at the hands of the Nazi Regime. Many people were killed, and he had to witness his father going to prison for being a Jew. He developed an understanding of the need to fight oppression and uphold human dignity and equality. Since then, the young man avidly set out to amass wealth and influence to help combat the oppressive through non-violent means. He came to the United States and realized the American Dream. As an American of a liberal mindset and a strong persuasion to show compassion to the world, George Soros began and still does, supporting the Democratic Party in its endeavor to make the United States a haven for all people to live amicably without discrimination.

The currency trader amassed his wealth as a New York economist. His speculative prowess could be associated with his keen eye for spotting economic and social trends. He made history in the year 1992 for predicting the Black Wednesday of the United Kingdom. He speculated the surging trend and was sure enough to risk it all. He solicited for ten billion dollars which he sold on that fateful day to earn a profit of one billion dollars. Since then, he has always been credited by his Wall Street peers, predecessors, and successors as the American who broke the Bank of England.
Since his pockets run deep, liberal groups have always had a source of funding that never runs dry. George Soros, according to Politico, has committed more than five million euros for organizations resisting dictatorship like the Independent Diplomat. The Independent Diplomat made a major impact in the liberalization of the people of Kosovo. He is also reported by the Washington Times to have allocated 13 billion dollars, over the last 30 years, to human rights lobby groups that have been agitating for the eradication of police brutality, racism, and wrongful incarceration. His financial contribution to the Ferguson protests saved the day as lawlessness was taking root. The protests, coupled with the Black Lives Matter had been a miscalculated reaction. Although the Black Lives Matter Campaign had been planned with decorum as an organized response, the protests were a bitter response to the extrajudicial killing of an unarmed 18-year-old. The protests had sparked off violence that entailed assault of police officers and gunning down of aggressive protestors. George Soros swooped in financially and ideally to mitigate the violence without quelling the intense ideological retribution. Read this story about George at politico.com.
