Lying hidden in the intensive coverage and publicity of the United States 2016 presidential elections was the return of a profoundly missed, liked and very generous liberal mega donor, and social justice champion, George Soros. It has been almost 13 years since George Soros was among the major contributors in the political arena when he donated $27 million to a cause focused on defeating President George W. Bush in the presidential elections held in 2004.
Last year, Soros resurrected his active participation in the U.S. politics where he stood as among the most feared critics of the conservative party through committing more than $25 million to support Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. In addition, Soros funded other well-articulated liberal causes as initially posted on Politico.com.

George Soros is of the belief that involving the ordinary citizen in government participation serves as the original way to maintaining an inclusive and just democracy in the States. Notably, Soros’ Open Society does not direct groups. For instance, the one in Ferguson to practically organize and run public protests, but the organization believes that the Ferguson protest and other like-minded protests throughout the nation are a spontaneous result of the public being sparked by lack of public participation and lack of accountability in our democracy and learn more about George.
Noticeably, George Soros committed $5 million to the Voting Rights Trust, a nonprofit group missioning to fight conservative efforts to restrict voting. This was in Soros’ aims of ensuring the United States’ democracy does not fall into the hands of the conservatives and Donald Trump, all who have different bearings on how democracy should run and be managed among other day-to-day humane and liberal issues and Soros’s lacrosse camp.
