America today is run by capitalists who want to make the most use of the people for their gains and for the organizations that they run. Instead of only sticking to business, company owners are now turning to politics as a way to help their businesses and provide it with the tools that they would need to ensure that things run in their favor. This has taken away the government working to help people to them just doing the same thing for big corporates. This would not have been able to happen as openly as it does now if it were not for the 2010 Supreme Court Ruling of ‘Citizen’s United.’ The ruling made it so that large businesses and corporates could now donate to political parties and campaigns without them having their motives questioned, and without having to account for the money that they are giving. This has naturally led to an increase in a lot of corruption in the government and among political parties. For starters, company owners are investing into political parties in exchange for a seat at the table. This is the manner in which a lot of the people currently in the government have got their positions, in spite of them not being qualified to do so. Political parties that are in power are trying to get laws passed which only benefit the organizations donating to them and not the actual people. The idea of democracy is slowly fading away into oblivion, while the country is transitioning into something that strays far away from that ideology.
End Citizens United was an organization that was designed to combat this ideology and to makes way for a system that benefits the country. The organization was founded by a group of like minded individuals who believe in the power of democracy and who believe that their efforts can help give the power back to the people of the country. End Citizen’s United was founded by David Bossie and Floyd Brown and today has numerous people all over the country coming forward in support of it.
Within the first three months of the organization coming into power, End Citizen’s United collected over four million dollars to help it in its efforts to bring about change to the system. Because the organization resonates with the needs and wants of the people, the organization has been receiving an incredible response. People all over the country feel like they do not have a say in matters of the government because they do not have a lot of power or influence over political parties. By uniting all those that feel that way, the organization brings them together to fight against the government so that the country can once again be governed by those who have the best interests of the people in mind.
