The Man Who Would be Kingmaker, Part I: George Soros is spending billions in the hope the American people are as easy to buy as left-wing politicians. (Rachel Ehrenfeld and Shawn Macomber, 10/29/04, FrontPage)

Soros has proven that with the vast resources of money at his command he has the ability to make the once unthinkable normal. His work as a self-professed “amoral” financial speculator has left millions in poverty. He has overthrown governments throughout the world, pumping so much cash into shaping former Soviet republics to his liking that he has bragged that the former Soviet Empire is now the “Soros Empire” (although that “Empire” did not last for very long; when he no longer served the former Soviets’ purposes, his Empire was taken away from him).

Now that “god” – Soros – has decided that George W. Bush has to go. The controversial billionaire has been proclaiming that defeating George W. Bush is the “central focus” of his life. He has written that he always “felt that modern society in general and America in particular suffer from a deficiency of values.” Only fundamental changes in our way of life will satisfy him, and he is spending millions to make those changes a reality.

With Soros’ pal Hillary Clinton promising the New York Post that the 2004 election, will be decided by “outside forces – something unforeseen that suddenly happens – that tilts the election one way or the other,” one wonders to what, or whom, she is referring.

“Of course what I do could be called meddling because I want to promote an open society,” he told Hemispheres magazine. “An open society transcends national sovereignty.” [emphasis added] And he has more tools at his disposal than you’d suspect. “Although I remain a champion of losing causes, how much closer I have come to realizing them than when I first started!” he wrote a few years ago.

Soros attempts at self-exposition can get pretty creepy at times, like in this passage from Underwriting Democracy: “I feel I must maintain a separation between myself and my persona. Without it I and my persona would be endangered…I hold my persona in high regard, from both a subjective and an objective point of view.”

When you hear folks talk about transcending our sovereignty you can't help but appreciate the 2nd Amendment.

To read more about George Soros I recommend going to Accuracy In Media and the National Legal and Policy Center. Their websites are www.aim.org and www.nlpc.org.

Soros, is just campaigning against one of his former subjects of his largesse; (Arbusto/
Spectrum/Harkin) and partially for his current
stake in the Carlyle Group's ultimate benefactors
(the Sauds)

Just like my mom used to tell me, "a fool and his money are soon parted".
