What Went Wrong
The Citizens United court cases was one of the most devastating decisions made in the American court system today. In January 2010, the Supreme Court decided certain large organizations were allowed to donate to political campaigns as often as they liked. Eventually this decision was extended to include corporations as well. Fortunately, there is someone out there trying to fight all of this. End Citizens United wants to unite all of us against this common enemy and get rid of it once and for all.
The Puppeteers Behind It All
The Citizens United decision was the work of the billionaire political donors known as the Koch Brothers. For years these two billionaire brothers have worked on trying to do everything they can to undermine democracy in America. They believe in a world where money speaks louder than the voices of the oppressed, but unfortunately for them there are people who want to stand up to this. This is where End Citizens United and their movement to change things happens to come in.
The Size Of The Resistance
End Citizens United isn’t some small scale movement with just a few workers in its ranks. There are millions of people joining the fight against Citizens United and putting their money towards keeping the fight alive. Grassroots movements like this are important, but they don’t always succeed. Far too often, people give up on these movements before they’re able to show exactly what they can do. So far, End Citizens United has not failed to deliver and has given people exactly what they wanted. They have led the fight against this dreadful court case and given hope for the future.
What Has Been Done So Far?
Perhaps the most notable impact that End Citizens United has ha don politics is helping politicians that oppose the court case gain momentum. These candidates have to face a number of challenges before they are able to compete and make a name for themselves. The Koch Brothers and others who want to gain hegemony over American politics are doing everything to stop them from reaching power. It appears that their efforts have had no lasting impact and may even encourage people to continue the good fight.
The End Goal In Sight
The ultimate goal of all of this is to lead to the return of power to the people of this country. There is no justifiable reason for the power and control over people Citizens United creates. People should be free to decide how their country will be run. This is the first step towards making sure that ends up happening in the end.
