george soros is the man. He makes millions like a dirty capitalist that you all claim to hate and uses that dirty capitalist money to fund campaigns to bring greater social liberty to the masses. Conflicted much?

@1: Hell no. It's frankly a relief to see the rare billionaire whose political views aren't completely reactionary and who is willing to put his money where his mouth is. I'd prefer to one day live in a world where non-billionaires could get their voices heard and could work to enact meaningful political change, but until then I'll take the help where I can get it. I imagine most progressives feel the same way.
