Self-made politician George Soros is once again preparing his various organizations for battle. He is in charge of Open Society Foundations. This is Soros’ organization that he utilizes to support various liberal and democratic causes all over the world.
As of March of 2017 Soros has been fighting against the Hungarian government to keep his Central European University from being closed down in Budapest. Now, he is taking on various organizations that are trying to push an Article V Convention.
Soros does not like the fact that states preparing for an Article V Convention meeting. He is for the Constitution but not for anyone giving more power back to the federal government through this living document.
An open society is a very important aspect of modern life. Many people might not realize this; a society must have minimal government control to enjoy their liberties and freedoms. Without these liberties being in place, people will not be able to live out their dreams to fullest.
Soros sees the current Trump administration as a government entity that is capable of taking this kind of action through the use of the Article V Convention. George Soros established the Open Society Foundations.
In case you did not know, an Article V Convention is designed to allow the Constitution to be altered through amendments. Normally, states carry out this process. However, Congress also has the ability to take this action if at least 2/3’s of its members agrees to this process. Soros knows how dangerous this could be for the American people.
Soros’s organizations such as Common Cause Texas, West Virginia Center, The Brennan Center for Justice and the Center for Media Center for Democracy have all spoken out against Article V Convention action. These organizations are funded by Soros’s Open Society Foundations.
George Soros only provides support to groups that back up his philosophies and way of life. While he might not absolutely agree with every organization that he supports; he realizes how important it is to help people to maintain their liberties within society.
Soros does not want the government to overreach its power. He knows that leaders like President Donald Trump could easily take advantage of this power and use it for the wrong purpose. That is the last thing that Soros wants for American citizens or citizens within the global community. Read more story at NYTimes.com about George Soros.
