Shedding Light On Dark Money In Politics

End Citizens United is a PAC attempting to end the shady money coming into politics from its GOP counterparts. If you’ve recently woken up thinking that you had a dream of Donald Trump being our President, only to find out it’s a scary reality, you may want to check out this grassroots organization. Comprised of primarily “small donors,” this group is attempting to reform campaign funding laws to avoid major corporations to be seen as humans in our electoral process, essentially “buying” elections.

Identifying The Supreme Court’s 2010 decision in Citizen’s United v. FEC, which allows special interests and billionaires to fund campaigns with no accountability as being the problem, the group has grown to well over 325,000 supporters in its petitioning and fundraising measures. The group seeks to bring transparency to our electoral spending through a few simple measures:

1.Electing pro-reform candidates

2.Raising the issue of money in politics as a national priority

3.Using grassroots membership to demonstrate political power on the issue of money in politics

Self-identifying as “Democrats,” the group is led by a staff of significant diversity, including Tiffany Muller, President and Executive Director, being one of the first openly gay political figures in Kansas, and paving the way for other LGBT figures to become representative in other areas of government such as congress and the senate, tackling discrimination every step of the way. The other staff members range from advocates to veterans, representing nearly every walk of life. Learn more about the organization on EndCitizensUnited.Org

End Citizens United makes getting involved easy, and provides a wealth of information

on its website http://endcitizensunited.org, where you can find video, news articles, a research area, and even find local events and causes to support this noble organization. If you are like most of us, and tired of having the government represent only a tiny fraction of the population, it might be time to consider getting involved. Money may not seem like a huge issue when looking from outside within, however our current administration exemplifies perfectly why this needs to be a major concern to all American’s, as most of us aren’t billionaires, and are being represented by folks that simply can’t relate to our issues and concerns. It’s time for a change, and time to act now, without further delay.

End Citizens United Supporters Continue Fight For Reachable Mission

After the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court 5-4 decision that changed the laws governing campaign finance laws on OpenSecrets.org, End Citizens United formed its grass roots effort for having it overturned.

End Citizens United is operated by a team of some of the most optimum and ideal individuals who decided that enough was enough. The team set out on a mission that turned out to be what a large section of U.S. citizens was waiting for.

Since its creation, End Citizens United received an overwhelming number of supporters. Their first petition obtained the organization over 300,000 U.S. citizens to combat the problem of campaign finance. The influx of money into the political system without oversight is seen by the organization as a complete disparity and they’ve petitioned the voters to stand up against it.

End Citizens United’s mission is to bring reform to campaign finance and they believe that in order for that to happen, there first needs to be a change with the politicians being elected. The organization believes that any elected official must adhere to complete transparency with the funds received from corporate and wealthy business owners. It is a clear-cut decision on their part for stopping any special interest group from contributing to an already rigged system on endcitizensunited.org.

Their continued success in eliminating this breach of trust within the political process has been overwhelmingly supported by U.S. taxpayers. They were able to raise $2 million with what is described as “small” donations. Donations of as little as $5.00 has reached the organization on Facebook, however, it has made a huge impact in their pursuit of political justice for American citizens.

It is clear from the amount of support the organization has received since their existence, that they’re on the heels of achieving one of the greatest grass root efforts of the 21st century. There’s been an enormous out-pouring of allegiance to this cause.

Completely non-profit, End Citizens United has garnered the attention of U.S. citizens and put politicians on high alert that campaign finance reform will be reached. Their productive alliance on msnbc.com with the voters of this country will prevail to a level that will leave politicians no other choice but to concede to change.

What makes End Citizens United so effective in its efforts is the people they’ve been able to reach. They project an additional four million supporters this year. Regardless of whether a person leans to the right or to the left of the political spectrum, the organization believes that U.S. citizens deserve the right to have their voices heard.

End Citizens United has stood by the core principle that the election power belongs to the people, not politicians. They believe that “democracy means government of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
