Political lobbyists have undermined the democratic process for way too long. The will of the masses ends up being delegated to second place; the interests of the wealthy billionaires take pole position always. Governments have completely abandoned their main prerogative and people are not at all pleased. How can organizations like End Citizens United, continue to act as if it’s business as usual when a few affluent families decide the fate of the 99% of the rest of the population?
We’ve reached a point whereby, the rule of law means absolutely nothing to elite individuals, think of the Rothschild, the Soros, and the Rockefellers. Their companies get a green card to operate with whatever impunity they can conjure and the leaders in Congress can do nothing about it. If the ambitions of End Citizens United see to live daylight, then, the reformist group will have raised $35M by the end of the year. This money will be used to push legislation which make it harder for wealthy Super PACs to gain control of governments.
Healing Rigged Systems
Speaking to the USA Today online e-zine, the President, and CEO of End Citizens United expressed his delight with the progress made the non-profit group in the first quarter of 2016. So far, they had added 40K new members effectively bringing their fan base to over 100K.
Plans for 2017 and the Future
The momentous rise of this PAC has been fueled by the moves and decisions made by the incumbent president, Donald Trump. Trump rose to power and proceeded to nominate some figures known to be political power barons. The only way to keep the president in check is to help elect leaders sympathetic to courses which clash with the agenda of the president, according to Muller and his team at United Citizens.
Tiffany Muller’s group recently chipped in a whopping $4M to the campaign kitty of the Democrat Jon Ossoff. Mr. Ossoff is looking to fill in a vacant congressional seat left vacant after the incumbent, Tim Price, got appointed as the Secretary Health and Human Services. End Citizens United steadily have their eyes on the 2018 mid-terms where they hope to fund several Democratic aspirants in 2017, the PAC will be supporting candidates in places like Ohio and Montana.
About End Citizens United
The title of the watchdog comes from the contentious motion which got passed by the Supreme Court in 2010. The ruling effectively made it legal for individuals and corporations to give any amount to political parties and causes. There’s no limit to what one can give the candidate of their choice and this is a sure recipe for inevitable disaster and all manner of injustices to the common person. One peculiar attribute of the End Citizens group is that no one is permitted to donate more than $5,000. Visit their official website to learn more about them or to make a donation.
