I want to open up with the start Richard Poe is one of my favorite authors. Every time I disagree with Mr Poe bet the ranch on Mr Poe. That being said lets turn back to the book the Shadow Party. The book is well worth the time and effort to read. Remember when one is challenging conventional wisdom it is a tough proposition. The conventional wisdom is that Soros is borderline insane. Mr Poe's portrayal of Soros is cold and calculating. The two may not be mutualy exclusive and no doubt history is replette with numerous examples of insane cold and calculating people.
Turning to the other criticisms of Soros it is against the law to use the media to promote your financial positions. Has Soros used clout within the media to line his pockets absolutely.
It is against the law for private US citizens to meddle in US foriegn policy. If George Soros is not charged then the law should be scrapped. This concept has been confused with freedom of speech. You do not have the right as a US Citizen to meddle in international affairs. Nobody elected Soros and he wasn't appointed to anything.
This is a fairly serious matter and Soros should be looking at hard time.
The book is excellent reading and if you are unfamiliar with Soros you will learn plenty. Is Soros insane or calculating? What laws has he violated? Who is this unknown coauthor David Horowitz?
Soros will be front and center in 2008. I am guessing he will hedge his bets with Hillary and her opponents.
