George Soros Returns to Politics to Fight for Progressives Everywhere

George Soros recently made headlines for his return back into the world of political theater. George Soros is a world famous philanthropist, investor, and noted progressive. Soros’ has continually pushed the envelope in order to bring social justice, democracy, and progress to places all around the globe and at home. Despite all of these glowing traits he is still considered something of a boogeyman to the conservative wing of the United States. Well, if Soros is the boogeyman than maybe it is time to start getting afraid. Soros returned to the political game in order to stand up for progress in the face of a Donald J. Trump presidency.

Of course, George Soros has been around politics for far longer than just the 2016 election. Soros famously backed Al Gore during Gore’s election bid in 2004 and if it weren’t for a controversy in Florida (Recount!) then you would have seen Gore standing in the Oval Office. With that being said, Soros has tried to take a gentler approach to politics over the past several years. Soros doesn’t believe in allowing money to control the political dialogue, but he certainly wasn’t going to let Donald Trump waltz into the White House unchecked.

Soros turned to support Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee during the 2016 Presidential Election campaign that saw so many dramatic, astounding, and straight up controversial things happen. Soros brought with him more than $25 million in contributions to various super PACs dedicated to supporting democrats all up and down the ballot box. He personally invested $7 million into a pro-Clinton super PAC as well — a record breaking contribution. To keep it short and simple, Soros put his money where his mouth is in order to try and keep Trump’s damage limited and confined.

We have seen George Soros act as a force in both politics and progressive values for decades now thanks to his work with the Open Society Foundations. The Open Society Foundations is Soros’ way to help fund charities and grassroots activist campaigns all throughout the world. He has directly donated at least $30 million to activists in and around Ferguson, thus helping to raise awareness during the Ferguson Protests. The Ferguson Protests acted as a galvanizing force for much of the United States to come together over. These protests shined a spotlight on the problems that minorities face when dealing with police officers, sometimes with deadly consequences. Learn more about his profile at washingtontimes.com.

George Soros saw firsthand what it could mean to be ruled by oppressive forces when he was just a young Jewish boy in Nazi-occupied Hungary. Soros was fortunate to survive though he saw friends and family carted off to gulags throughout Europe. Soros survived, emigrated, and got an education. It was during his school years that he learned the philosophy that would guide his political principles for the rest of his life and it is that philosophy that we are paying special attention to now. With George Soros in the fray and at the helm we can surely expect big things to come.

George Soros Has Economic Competition from Philip Diehl

Although George Soros is known in the investment community as the leading progressive investor in the United States, he now has some conservative competition from U.S. Money Reserve.

According to Crunchbase and Glassdoor, The Industry Council for Tangible Assets (ICTA) has named U.S. Money Reserve president Philip N. Diehl as the president of their organization. U.S. Money Reserve helps sell gold and silver assets to the common man, as a way to protect assets against the careless financial behavior of the current U.S. government.

Diehl highly values creating a favorable atmosphere for gold and silver companies to compete and sell their wares. Diehl worked to fight against a Minnesota law that made it hard for businessmen to sell their products to customers. Diehl is also a former director for the United State Mint, so he has vast experience about the government perspective for the regulation of precious metals.

George Soros profits from making risky hedge fund bets. He sees that companies are soon going to decline, and then bets against them. Diehl, by contrast, thinks that it is more important to hold assets that are stable and long term. Gold and silver are prime examples.

Although the paper value of the Soros fortune may be far more than the typical gold and silver investor, if the economy of the United States ever crashes, gold and silver will still be just as valuable then as it is now. Not true with corporate and government bonds and stocks, which are Soros’ financial life blood. As director of ICTA, Diehl is going to try to help the reputation of precious metals gain a makeover in the U.S.

A lot of modern economists scoff at the idea of using gold and silver, but they were valued as monetary units until very recent history. The market economists and their political stooges lose sleep whenever the economy takes a nosedive. Not so with the wise precious metals investor.

He chuckles as he views his glittery stash in the safe. No matter what the price level of the paper market, he has something that has been valued for millennia as a store of value.
