The End Citizens United’s Mission
The formation of End Citizens United was triggered by the decision that was made in the year 2010 about the case that was presented between the Citizens United vs. F.E.C. The decision that was made to allow big corporations to spend as much money as they need in America’s elections would entirely change the United States’ politics for as long the law still exists. The worst of it is that the court issued legal permission to big corporations and individuals to spend money without being scrutinized which means America’s elections can now be bought. This could mean the big corporations could select the leaders of their choice by sponsoring them with any amount they need. However, this decision only marked the beginning of another fight. The group’s financial information is available on OpenSecrets.Org.
The Formation of End Citizens and its Grievances
The End Citizens United political committee was started in the year 2015 to spearhead the fight against big corporations funding political parties with ill intentions. The End Citizens United represents the average Americans and they are not funded by big money but they receive their donations from grassroots. Some of the problems that come with the 2010 Supreme Court decision include the rich groups funding their aspirants who will end passing laws that favor big corporations at the expense of the average Americans.
Apart from their commitment to put an end to the Citizens United, they are also focused on ensuring that pre-reform candidates are elected and also doing away with using money in politics among other commitments. The End Citizens United political committee intends to fight this war by ensuring that the issue of big money politics becomes a national concern. The End Citizens have shown their support to the pro-reform Democrats candidates which have received several critics in the past. However, they have responded to these critics by stating out that despite the fact that there are some Republicans and independent candidates have shown their fight against this fight against big money politics, there are many Republicans members of Congress who have shown that they are determined to protect the 2010 Supreme Court decision from being reversed.
