The Koch brothers are used as an example of corruption, especially the power of money in American politics. The Koch brothers have pledged to spend $900 million in the 2016 presidential race in support of Republican candidates and this has made them a lightning rod for liberals throughout the country.
Bloomberg.com reports the left has their own financier, an 85-year-old Forbes billionaire hedge fund manager named George Soros. He burst onto the scene during the George W. Bush years, donating millions of dollars to Democratic congressional candidates in opposition of the Republican president. To conservatives, he has become a lightning rod. That is why the conservative media screamed foul when they discovered that two of George Soros’s employees and friends have donated almost a half $1 million to the presidential campaign of Republican governor John Kasich.
If you dig a little deeper, this is an apparent attempt to stop Donald Trump, but it may backfire. Staunch conservatives may turn away from Kasich at the polls if they discover he’s being financed by the liberal answer to the Koch brothers. But why is a vote for Kasich a vote against Trump? And why is Soros trying to stop Trump before he secures the nomination?
George Soros has a knack for seeing potential pitfalls and danger lurking around the corner. He learned this ability from his non-observant Jewish father, who he watched at a young age grow fearful of Nazi rhetoric. Long before the Nazis reached their home city of Budapest, Hungary, his father took action, changing their family’s name and securing false documents showing that they were not Jewish. This helped the Soros family survive the war, but a young Soros was forced to register with the Nazis.
According to NY Books. a registration of Muslim Americans is on Donald Trump’s agenda. He sees this hateful step echo a Nazi platform from his youth. A youth he survived, and after moving to London as a refugee with no money, he thrived. But Donald Trump wants to build a wall, blaming some of the Americas problems on immigrants. George Soros the founder of Open Society promotes, through various initiatives, open borders and acceptance because he believes in the potential of immigrants to do good just as he did. In short, he sees the potential pitfalls and dangers of Donald Trump if he secures the Republican nomination for president.
But Trump needs Ohio because Ohio gives all of its delegates to the winner of the primary. With so many candidates still in the race, it will be difficult for Trump to secure enough delegates to win the nomination before the convention without winning Ohio. Without enough delegates, many in the Republican establishment may move to stop Trump from becoming the nominee even if he has the most delegates. This could inspire Donald Trump to run as a third-party candidate where he will split the Republican party. And since George Soros is a liberal sympathizer, fracturing the Republican Party would be an added bonus to stopping the hateful march of Donald Trump. With this move, it’s easy to see how Soros made so much money as a businessman.
