The End Citizens United and its Contributions to the USA political Landscape

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

The End Citizens United holds that high levels of inefficiencies mark the American political and electoral processes. The group argues that those issues are linked to the role of big money in the electoral activities. Currently, there are no regulations on the number of finances that politicians can receive from donors to support their political activities. Consequently, billionaires and large corporations have seized this opportunity as being one of the ways that they can sway the elections to their favors. They undertake to support leaders who are keen in implementing policies and initiatives that favor their agendas. It holds that the leaders lack accountability and are less committed to addressing the issues facing the electorates. Read this article at Chronicle of Week to learn more.

The mission of the End Citizens United is thus to end the role of big money in the system. It undertakes to finance and support the candidature of individuals that are keen on pushing for positive reforms. In the past, the End Citizens United has pushed for the election of individuals such as Hilary Clinton, and Maggie Hassan. Although its contributions have been in only one election cycle, the group has managed to secure the support of many citizens and politicians. Through the support of the grassroots individuals, the group has been on the leading front in advocating for accountability and upholding of the rights of the electorates.

The End Citizens United V. F.E.C. Supreme Court Ruling

The Supreme Court Ruling in 2010 in the listed case changed the nature of the American politics. Unlike the previous settings where there were regulations on the number of resources that Candidates and political parties could receive from diners, the ruling upheld unlimited financing. Éclair on, The Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 had sought to ensure that there was a limit on the amount of resources used in an election. The provision had the benefit of controlling the impacts that billionaires and large corporations had on the process. It is thus the goal of the End Citizens United to ensure that this ruling is reversed. It is only through such a setting that the American elections would record a high level of accountability, efficiency, and transparency.

End Citizens United: Beto O’Rourke Focuses on the Issues

Monday, August 13th, 2018

Recently, a poll taken by End Citizens United showed that the Senate race in Texas between Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke is closer than the Republicans had initially reported. While the poll released by End Citizens United showed that Ted Cruz was leading by approximately 14%, other polls such as the one from the University of Texas showed that his lead may only be around 5%. This is quite surprising in a state that is traditionally very conservative. This may account for why only a dismal 38% of people in Texas approve of the job that he is doing in office.

Many people are not aware of Beto O’Rourke’s policies, he is working hard to change that by hitting the pavement in grassroots efforts. He has visited all 254 counties in Texas, even in areas that have not voted for a Democrat in decades. If elected, he will be showing a strong focus on jobs and education for those who are wanting to find jobs and willing to put the work into doing it. In addition, he also shows a strong level of support for immigrants and believes that the state needs to put an end to raids and separating children from their families. While he does show a strong focus on local politics, he hopes that Texas and the rest of the United States can come together for the benefit of the country.

According to approval polls, Ted Cruz’s main problem in this election might just be himself. He is being accused of passing policies with the interests of his donors and large corporations in mind instead of the voters.

End Citizens United has been working since 2015 to bring an end to big money influencing politics on a local and national level. After the Supreme Court of the United States decided in 2010 that corporations are people and political campaigns did not have to fully reveal where their donations came from, End Citizens United knew that something had to be done. They support candidates who believe in reforming the electoral system so candidates are elected based on their merit and policies rather than who donates money to them.
