End Citizens United-Fighting for What Is Right

End Citizens United is one of the organizations that richly advocates for the rights of the minority. The PAC, thanks to its significant backing from the members of the public, has done tremendous things including fighting against the wealthiest Americans who tie a noose on politicians during and after the campaign season.

The United States has always been a normal country but after the 2010 Supreme Court decision, the country and its people have gotten governed by money-hungry politicians who would rather sell fellow countrymen to the dogs rather than help them.

It is agreeable that the changes in the American political culture have more than altered the landscape, resulting in a lot of turmoil. End Citizens, however, has not taken the politically elite forces that are as corrupt as they come lightly. The PAC, through its team of excellent advocates, takes the war to the courts with the aim of having the legal system do away with the 2010 constitutional reforms.

End Citizens United, since its inception, has fought for constitutional amendments that favor free speech. Secondly, the PAC through its team has played a significant role in ensuring that the power that presently gets accorded to corporations and billionaires transcends to the people who represent the majority.

The PAC, having faced some serious setbacks in the past, now knows how to play to the tune well. End Citizens United has created a forum that empowers grassroots leaders to find their way to the government. Additionally, the PAC is using its legal team to fight for reforms, not on a battleground, but rather in the halls of justice.

Today marks three years since the organization got formed. Regardless, the PAC has been able to make bold steps in the constitutional reforms of the country because of the men and women who have sacrificed everything to make the United Success successful.

Individuals like Tiffany Muller, Matt Burgess, Adam Bozzi, Anne Feldman, Andrew Laskar, Jordan Wood, Ron Barber, Jessica Berg, Christopher Massicotte, Lanae Hatalsky, Simone Ward, Addisu Demissie, and Bill Smith have surely made End Citizens United great. The 2018 congressional elections are fast approaching but the organization is not backing down anytime soon.

Its robust plan of raising thirty-five million dollars is slowly becoming a reality because End Citizens United is now bigger and better. From the look of things, America and the world by extension is now a better place all because of the PAC.

End Citizen’s United Pursue of Political Campaign Finance Transparency

Court rulings, though indirectly, act as a legal precedent in interpretation of future maters. This remarkably applies if the verdict came from a court of higher standing like the Supreme Court. The American society suffered under such consequences in the infamous 2010 Supreme Court ruling in the matter of Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission. It stemmed from a 2008 Federal Election Commission’s decision barring Citizens United from airing a 90 minute purported film based on Hilary. It was observed by the commission that the video was purely a campaigning advert targeting to tarnish the image of one of the candidates. Even though their efforts got limited, this didn’t deter them from concealing the primary source of fund for the film though the federal law at that time deemed this as mandatory. The Supreme Court’s ruling was phenomenal, bringing in a profound shift in matters of free speech.

Previously discreet and silent advertisers suddenly started coming up with numerous television and radio advertisement during the campaign season. Most purely based on the precedent of the previous court ruling that donors don’t necessarily have to take personal responsibility. A great political debate ensued that lead to combined efforts towards overturning the adverse effect of the Citizen’s ruling considering the negative reception to the verdict. This led to the formation of End Citizens United at the beginning of March 2015 that established its headquarters in Washington, DC. The primary role of the organization is to dilute and end the ramifications brought about by the Citizens United ruling.

Funding mostly concentrates on grassroots sources to remove the heavy reliance on heavy corporate involvement. Also, they focus on Democratic candidates that are interested in ending the effects of the ruling on the political environment. The strategical application of different policies to counteract the Citizens United ruling is twofold. Create massive support for those political candidates interested in the initiative and then direct necessary effort in overturning the verdict. End Citizens United mainly utilizes the digital platform to acquire funds. The leadership team consists of people who have amassed great political experience mostly in the Democratic Party and in other territories. End Citizens United has over 380,000 grassroots donor base and is increasingly building on its staff quantity. The primary role of the organization is to pledge support for those people who are going for political office and are not interested in getting funded by large corporations.

End Citizens United Gearing Up for 2018

A recent article by Release Fact’s Bryan Harris presents a brewing showdown in Wisconsin, one of many states where the political action committee End Citizens United (ECU) is working to end big money – that is, the unlimited and undisclosed money in politics – through ballot measure campaigns as well as by electing “campaign finance reform champions,” according to its website.

One of those champions is Randy Bryce, whom ECU have endorsed to run against House Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District. Politico calls Wisconsin a GOP stronghold, where Republican hopefuls are already securing big donors for their super PACs, as End Citizens United tweeted on October 12:

@StopBigMoney GOP is out of touch with the American people. Instead of appealing to voters, they’re reaching out to mega-donors. https://t.co/2oVsFantwL

Politico continues: “Some of the communication with donors this year would be illegal if it took place between a candidate and a super PAC. But there’s nothing keeping soon-to-be candidates from recruiting such support before they declare a run for office.”

The fact that billionaire backers are a must-have, even before candidates announce their campaigns, is symptomatic of a bigger problem when it comes to campaign finance, which Republican leaders like Speaker Ryan have been fighting to deregulate for years. According to Harris, Ryan came out strongly against reform legislation like the DISCLOSE Act and McCain-Feingold, parts of which were struck down when Citizens United, a PAC supported largely by the Koch brothers, challenged the law’s limitations on political spending by corporations.

In contrast, says Harris, “Randy Bryce is running on a platform that emphasizes not only campaign finance reform in general but the overturning of Citizens United specifically,” which as its name suggests, is ECU’s ultimate goal. One powerful tool they bring to bear is their grassroots network, demonstrating political power doesn’t require a big payout; within weeks of the ECU endorsement on August 16, the Bryce campaign announced that it had raised more than $353,000 in individual contributions, 82 percent of which were small donations under $200.

Harris argues that campaign finance has been flooded with money from corporations, special interests, and the very wealthy since the Citizens United ruling, “drown[ing] out the voices of smaller players.” The End Citizens United PAC is working to change that, through legislation like the revived DISCLOSE Act of 2017 and by supporting Democratic candidates in high-impact races like the one in Wisconsin that could potentially unseat the Republican House leader. With $4 million raised as of an April 2017 financial report and $35 million projected for the 2018 election cycle, they may be closer than ever to achieving their goal.
