Ever since End Citizens United was formed in 2010, the organization has made waves across the political spectrum, emerging as a company that supports just political party members and acts as a voice for the people who feel like they aren’t’ being heard in society.
The organization first came into existence after the Supreme Court passed a ruling called Citizens United. One of the reasons why the verdict become so controversial is because of what it stood for. Citizens United allowed large corporates and big names to invest and donate to corporations and political parties without question. Political Parties become the new way to launder money, which is something that wasn’t exactly beneficial for the overall development of the country as a whole.
This ruling didn’t only make way for money laundering but increased the amount of corruption that political parties witness by a considerable amount. People who possessed the money that parties wanted could now use this as a way to meet their needs and demands, even if it goes against the system and integrity of the country. It’s no secret that the democratic party, in particular, made full use of this new ruling, not only to fund their party but also because it allowed people in power to come onto their side. The party becomes slaves to the money that people in business would dangle in front of them, even going so far as to offer high up positions within the government in exchange for a monetary amount.

Another reason why people all over the country were widely discontented with the ruling was that it shifted the focus of the party towards people who possessed money and power, and nothing else. It made for a system where people didn’t have faith in the party, and the party didn’t care about its people. End Citizens United wanted to overthrow this ruling so that the country can once again focus on its people and their needs.
Even though the idea of revoking the ruling might seem easy, the task of accomplishing it is harder than anyone would expect. Currently, we are being led by the Democratic Party, which is the side that is in support of this ruling. If the country wants ever to see it get back to what it was before the verdict, the best way to do so is by instating learned and experienced people into positions of power. The Republican Party has made it very clear that this ruling works in their favor, which is why all hope turns towards the Democratic Party.
To bring their goal to fruition, End Citizens United has been supporting members of the Democratic Party, along with educating the people about their potential leaders to make more informed decisions. End Citizens United is one of the biggest political action group in the country. The average contribution of each member is $14, this group has more than 3 million members across the nation.
