Mr. Soros is not interested in encouraging the citizens as a whole to participate more actively in the electoral process. You need to add the missing words, “among those groups most likely to vote for leftist candidates” to get it right.
So Soros' Open Societies Foundation as well as Mr. Soros himself are funding strategies to encourage participation in the electoral process among those groups most likely to vote for leftest candidates. With the added words we have an accurate statement that exposes Soros' motives and agenda.
The Washington Free Beacon gives us some help adding some transparency to Soros' alleged “openness.” Quoting from a 220-page Open Societies Foundation guide outlining its elections efforts, the Beacon informs us that,
“The following four goals form the scaffolding of U.S. Programs’ work,” the guide states. “1. An American democracy strengthened through increased meaningful participation, inclusive practice, and accountability.” The third strategic goal expands upon this, calling for “Full political, economic, and civic participation of immigrants and communities of color by dismantling the barriers and strengthening the conduits to opportunity.”
Later, the guide discusses expanding the electorate by “at least 10 million voters” in the United States. This would be accomplished “by lowering barriers to voter registration through the various forms of modernization and increased ballot access while sustaining and expanding the franchise by establishing strong protections against vote suppression, denial and dilution.”
Lest there be any remaining doubt as to whether this election program has a leftest agenda, the Beacon tells us all we need to know about Soros' real goal.
“The campaign’s leader is Marc Elias, a partner at the D.C-based law firm Perkins Coie and Hillary Clinton’s top campaign lawyer. Elias’ work on the legal project is separate from his work on the campaign, although Clinton supports the effort.”
So, while Mr. Soros' would no doubt say he supports openness and equality, and that he wants to increase voter participation, it would seem that “some voters are more equal than others.”
