There are many people in today’s world that could make a difference in how the world is run. However, they are too poor to be taken notice of, and their education is too lacking to make a difference. For others, they’re too sick to find work to earn enough money to fund their educational goals. If these people could only rise above their burden of poverty the world might be a better place to live in for all people. George Soros has the money and the aspiration to fix this problem through his charities.
George attended school to learn about philosophy and economics. These are two subjects that have driven him to attain great wealth and influence on the world. He uses his assets to fund the Democratic Party in hopes that the right leaders can be elected to make the differences that he knows to be possible within society. In the meantime, until such leaders can come to be, George will use his charity, the Open Society Foundation, to make all the changes possible. George follows the philosophy of the illustrious Karl Popper. His belief was that when everyone has money and every citizen has an education, and then there can exist a better world. Karl called this concept a free and open society.
George uses that philosophy as the driving force to fund the poor. Through his charity, George has made sure that if an impoverished citizen wants to bring themselves up out of poverty, but is only lacking an education with which to find a proper job, then George will fund their educational pursuit. If the citizen wants to find a job, but is too sick to work, then George will fund their costs for medical aid to become healthy enough for employment. If a person is unfairly incarcerated, George will hire lawyers to help set them free. It is only through the unification of the citizens working together for a better world, that such a world can be brought about. Visit Project Syndicate to learn more about George.
George Soros suffered some of the worst experiences as a child, arising from the Nazis coming to his Hungarian homeland and murdering several Jewish people, a community that George is a member of. If it weren’t for George’s father, he would have been identified as a Jew and killed along with the other people that the Nazis discovered. However, George’s father had money from his time spent as an attorney. He used this money to buy false identity papers to fool the Nazis into believing George and his family was Christian. This is proof alone that money can keep people alive, even when faced against impossible odds.

The Koch brothers are squarely not on team Trump. The only candidate that came close to them, ideologically speaking, was Rand Paul, who has subsequently dropped out of the race. There are slim pickings when it comes to Republican candidates, and there is widespread disenfranchisement amongst party leaders about what to do about this political quagmire Trump has created. Charles Koch, and several hundred of their political allies, actually gathered in a sort of “stop Trump” discussion. They have carefully assessed his vulnerabilities, and are leading with highlighting his bankruptcies and victimizing business deals, where he arbitrarily threw average investors under the bus.
The unfortunate turn-of-events for the Koch brothers, however, is that they knew full-well Trump will take their “attack” and use it as a means to say there are millionaires ganging up on him, and thereby fortifying his outsider stance. This will work for him in ways the Koch brothers need to consider, and also try to avoid giving him further credence: a daunting task indeed. The Koch brothers have effectively taken their liberal, Libertarian views to the Republican party in hopes of moderating it, and make it more amenable to their views. They were able to gain some political traction within the party ranks by essentially decentralizing power through targeting candidate recruitment, and through fundraising efforts. They have compiled a list of targeted large donors who can help them advance their agenda.
Paradoxically this strategy may be exactly what usurps them in this election. The rise of these groups of very large donors, with competing interests and factions, are flowing through the political system like a fragmented snake trying to find its head. This has created dissension in the ranks, and the party is somewhat implosive while their dominance is being challenged by these disparate fragments. Meanwhile they Koch brothers have a long-standing dislike of the Clintons, as they fail to forget the regulatory barrage of investigators they dealt with during President Clinton’s reign, and that which caused them to have the most traumatic stretch in their corporate history.
The takeaway here is that even the wealthiest in this country cannot buy elections. This means our system is working, and as much as the Koch brothers are vacillating about if, and how, to take on the Trump machine, their party lacks an alternative promising candidate. That said, Koch may inadvertently help Hillary Clinton get elected, or the antithesis of what they want, because their hatred of Trump forces them to add more and more divisive fuel to an already deeply troubled party with a polarizing megalomaniac on the rise. It is 2016, and this is the United States: isn’t politics grand?!

Charles Koch, an American billionaire and businessman, met with F.T. with an interview in support of his new book. He told of the $400 million raised through their donor network to support Mitt Romney, but lost to Barack Obama. Charles Koch redoubled his efforts in order not to have the same results in this new presidential election.
2016 began this year’s election cycle, the Koch brothers and their allies have banded together by pledging to raise nearly $900 million to elect Republicans. It will be to whoever ends up facing Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders in the general election.
As it seems not to be working out because the other members of the Republican party, such as Donald Trump. They misjudged Mr. Trump who was never considered a serious player. Charles Koch doesn’t agree with his politics on taxes, foreign policy and trade. With a conflict of interest between Koch and Trump, they left Trump off their invite list for the August donor summit. However, there were five of his opponents from the Republican party.
It is this election cycle that was to be the fulfillment of their mission to get a Republican in the White House. The millions they have invested could be at risk. It is a question that if the Kochs begin to engage Hillary or Bernie, or do they wage war on Trump.
Charles Koch opted out from engaging in the primaries because they couldn’t find a single candidate who encapsulated their views. They considered taking a portion of the funds to target Trump, even if it meant losing a few of their members who support Trump. The Koch officials are waiting to see how the early primaries end.
If Trump prevails in New Hampshire polls, the Koch brothers are likely to launch an offensive before the nomination gains momentum. A meeting with the Kochs and several hundred of their allies discussed Trump and how to halt his progression.
Trump’s vulnerabilities were carefully assessed and those of the other candidates. They discussed highlighting his track record of bankruptcies and predatory business deals. The Democrats deployed a similar successful strategy, against Romney’s vulture capitalism. It has not been determined as if Kochs would do something on that order, but have seriously discussed it in all their meetings.
If decided to go after Trump, the Koch brothers know he will respond with his excuse of being attacked by billionaires seeking to control of the outcome of the election. Trump would say he is an outsider who is trying to battle a corrupt political system.
It is uncertain if the Kochs and their allies will take on Trump before it’s too late.
