Didn't break the British pound.
Didn't topple governments.
No evidence that he was the puppet master telling the Secretary of State of any administration how to deal with other countries.
Wasn't behind disruptive groups when candidates he didn't back were campaigning.

I could go on, but won't.

I never hear specifics about the terrible things this guy has done. People who indict him but ignore what Soros has done, are willfully ignorant.

The Koch brothers were one of the biggest pushers for open borders, maybe only Soros is worse. I won't be crying about this, his entire agenda was turn America into the world's business center where being an American means nothing and all that matters is making $$$. Well f*ck that.

I hope a few people can finally start thinking for themselves.
For a Republican, he sure dumped a lot of cash into the Hillary camp.
The guy was establishment and everything wrong with the world. POWER Plays.

I am not sad. Their family is the model for double speak. They played both sides convincingly.

Are you against people with differing opinions espousing them?
For what it's worth, I was referring to paid off politicians. Not voters themselves.

Say the same for Soros if you will. We need to get rid of all the private money in politics.

My biggest gripe with the Koch Bros. is their horrendous record on the environment (willful destruction in all things profit) and how they managed to dictate Scott Walker's entire agenda.

Wishing for anything but peace for the family is evil.
