Take action now: Take the Stop Amnesty Challenge.

It's up to you to block Obama's amnesty.

Be patient, my super wealthy friends, our time will come!

From "Soros says be patient":
George Soros told a carefully vetted gathering of 70 likeminded millionaires and billionaires last weekend that they must be patient if they want to realize long-term political and ideological yields from an expected massive investment in "startup" progressive think tanks.

The Scottsdale, Ariz., meeting, called to start the process of building an ideas production line for liberal politicians, began what organizers hope will be a long dialogue with the "partners," many from the high-tech industry. Participants have begun to refer to themselves as the Phoenix Group.

Rob Stein, a veteran of President Bill Clinton's Commerce Department and of New York investment banking, convened the meeting of venture capitalists, left-leaning moneymen and a select few D.C. strategists...

Senior Democratic National Committee (DNC) officials were quietly briefed about the meeting in recent weeks. DNC Chairman Howard Dean was aware of it...

...Sarah Ingersoll, de facto spokeswoman for Stein's Democracy Alliance...

The Democracy Alliance will act as a clearinghouse and is expected to channel much of its money to new organizations and existing ones such as John Podesta's Center for American Progress and David Brock's Media Matters for America...

Other participants included former White House press secretary Mike McCurry and New Democrat Network president Simon Rosenberg. Andy Rappaport, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist and reliable investor in liberal causes, did not attend the meeting, his spokeswomen said...
They also want to create "training camps for young progressives." Russia's desperate, so they could probably license the Komsomol logo at a good price.

Strangely enough, Soros and his richest friends do not see any openness value which could apply to letting the masses into the hyperexclusive places they live in and frequent. How is it that openness is valuable when the net taxpayers of more modest means are to have the third world dumped on their public expenditure, yet suddenly openness is undesirable when it might compromise the cachet of some multimillionaires' enclaves? This shows that they are liars, that they do not value what they pretend to value, and that other motivations, such as power seeking are implicated. After all, billionaires can hardly get excited about another million, but to gain power by posing as the champion of impoverished tropical populations just wanting a chance to get in on the welfare warfare states, would be a real addition to what they have politically.
