In 2010, the Supreme Court verdict is what brought the new perspective in politics. Part of the ruling of the court that read “corporations are people” is part of what raised the political temperature, and End Citizens United could not sit at the back and see the manipulation of election systems. The court’s declaration meant that organizations and groups would use the money to buy the elections for particular gains. Also, the usage of money and its source could not be questioned, which was a clear indication that the U.S. elections would no longer be democratic.
End Citizens United came into existence on March 1st, 2015 to prevent substantial political funding trend which had the hidden agendas in the country’s electoral system. As per the verdict, those favored and voted, would, in turn, favor certain groups and organizations that boosted their campaigns financially. ECU is financed not by huge funds, but through simple donations by supporters of democracy at the ground. Visit their page on Facebook.
End Citizens United is dedicated that apart from attempting to stop Citizen’s United, there was also the need to stop pro-reform politicians from being elected and bring to an end the act of dishing out money in politics. ECU has supported pro-reform Democrats to date, and that’s not going well with the critics.
End Citizens want it to come to an end so that they can support candidates who only target the non-financed reforms. For Republican or Independent candidates who are against the buying of elections, End Citizens United is ready to support them. In the group’s website, supporters can see what the committee does, and that includes the news of the organization.
Besides, End Citizens United has a page for candidates who advocate for pro-reforms and a contributions page. In the site, there are clear directions on how to stop the activities of Citizens United. ECU supporters can create private groups in social media, share the messages in their websites or use other platforms to stand with the anti-pro-reform candidates who should be elected. Today, ECU prides in bringing vital changes in the United States electoral system, whereby the changes have been boosted recently by renown politicians joining the movement.
