There are few financial experts who have made such a big impact on the world through their political and philanthropic career than George Soros, the Hungarian born octogenarian who is still leading the way for Democrat donors in the 21st century. Discover the Networks explains George Soros made his first major impact on U.S. politics in 2004 when he pledged more than $27 million to the campaign of Democrat John Kerry after Soros became concerned with the militarization of the U.S. nation as the second Iraq war became a major part of the narrative of the 21st century. Soros himself believes the rising level of military spending in the U.S. should be cut and has used his own open Society Foundations to push forward the opinions of the groups he backs, such as the American Friends Service Committee.

George Soros began his life living under the threat of Nazi groups that were expanding the cause of far right extremist groups across much of western and central Europe in the 1930s and 40s, which eventually led to George Schwartz being renamed George Soros by his father after the fear of anti-Semitic groups began to creep into the lives of the Hungarian Jewish community.

The militarization of the U.S. is something George Soros has been fighting throughout the 21st century as he was a vocal critic of President George W. Bush and his Administration in the move towards embarking on the Second Iraq War and the deep distrust many maintained over the reasons for this conflict taking place.
