End Citizens United: Dealing with Impunity

America has always been the land of the free. It is a country that for many years has attracted people from all over the globe in search of better opportunities. When you compare the United States of America with any other nation in the world, it proves to be superior by all means. For centuries, this great nation has relied on democracy to elect its leaders. However, a 2010 ruling took the country back to its dark days, times when ordinary citizens were subject to oppression.

 

 

The 2010 decision, although meant to do the American people a lot of good, has resulted in immense pain and suffering on the part of the citizens. It has provided a legal loophole where billionaires can take the electorate and entire nation at ransom without experiencing any consequences. Since the amendment allows for people with money to support campaigns of their most preferred candidates, selfish billionaires have seen the above as an opportunity to puppeteer leaders they might have helped bring to power so that they can benefit in one way or the other. In so doing, many people have become susceptible to poverty due to a struggling economy and underdevelopment. Without a voice to air their grievances, a group of disgruntled members of the public formed a PAC by the name of End Citizens United.

 

 

End Citizens United has been incredibly vibrant in fighting against rich people who have active engagements in matters regarding politics. With the group being controlled by five people, it has been able to subscribe new members to its course. Before 2016, the organization had collected $2 million from donations and advertisements. The money was used to support Democrats and other grass root leaders who have the best interests of the people at heart. The organization has also been passionate about bringing more of its members to power so that they can overrun puppet politicians. As of March 2017, the PAC had come up with $4 million, money sourced from members. The group plans to raise more than $35 million before the end of the year, so as to support its candidates during the 2018 Congress Elections. Currently, End Citizens United only takes money from its members since it wants to avoid a scenario where it falls prey to donors with devious means.

 

 

With its team of expert lawyers, End Citizens United is more of a risk to billionaires that have taken our country by the throat. Since the PACs fight is not physical but rather psychological, the organization might be successful in having the courts reverse the 2010 decision, and even put injunctions so as to protect Americans in future. So far, the group has achieved much and very soon, the American people will be able to regain control over their beautiful nation.
