Ted Cruz has been getting in his own way all year. Recently, when social media companies banned Alex Jones, the famous conspiracy theorist, from their platforms, Ted Cruz spoke up in favor of Alex Jones. In a tweet Ted Cruz said he disagreed with Facebook’s decision to remove Infowars videos from their website.

Citizens of Texas had already grown stale of Ted Cruz after his failed run for POTUS. Since then his reputation of putting his own interests ahead of Texas citizens has grown. There are a variety of things wrong with Ted Cruz, leading to his decreasing popularity. Beto O’Rourke is taking full advantage of Cruz’s fall in popularity.

O’Rourke is just one of the candidates being supported by End Citizens United. The organization is also standing behind Elizabeth Warren, Angus King, and Sherrod Brown this election season.

End Citizens United began after the 2010 Supreme Court decision in favor of Citizens United. This decision changed the political landscape in America. It made it possible for corporations to purchase elections. Rich companies are now able to donate near endless amounts of money to a politician of their choice. The organization was founded in 2015.

In August, four more candidates got End Citizen United’s stamp of approval. These politicians are Alyse Galvin, Diane Bush, Kathleen Williams, and Jennifer Wexton.

End Citizens United Wants To End Corporate Personhood

Rick Scott is the spineless governor of Florida. He hid in the aftermath of the Stoneman Douglas shooting and how he’s breaking campaign finance laws as he runs for Senate. End Citizens United, a campaign finance watchdog organization, has sounded the alarm on the governor.

Apparently, Rick Scott became the head of a PAC that received $3 million in donations from certain executives. These same executives were the ones who benefited from a change in Florida pension policy under Rick Scott the governor. That all seems a bit fishy. I’m just glad End Citizens United is on the ground in Florida to stop these crimes.

The group is amazing. They started back in 2015 as a response to Citizens United. Of course, we all know that Supreme Court Decision where a 5-4 conservative majority on the bench ruled that corporations are “people.” I just don’t understand how these people ascended to the highest court in the land. I’ve never seen a corporation walk down the street, eat a sandwich or vote.

Unfortunately, that decision now allows corporations to exercise First Amendment rights. These people, according to case law, have the right to free speech but they aren’t even capable of breathing or speaking. So, the Supreme Court, in all of its twisted logic, said that corporations exercise speech with money.

End Citizens United is working to end corporate influence on our elections. The group has a multi-tiered approach. They work on the local level to change campaign finance laws. They work on the national level by endorsing candidates that want to end Citizens United. And they have a long game. They envision a future without corporate personhood.

A constitutional amendment would be easy. It would simply state that people are only living, breathing human beings. It’s that simple. If you can’t breathe, speak or die, then you are not a person. It’s terrifying what conservatives will come up with next in order to damage democracy. I mean, they are already tipping the scale by letting corporations “speak” with money. Why not just let a corporation run for president in 2020?

End Citizens United: A PAC With Big Goals For Political Reform

End Citizens United is an organization that wants to enforce precisely what it says in its name, which is to end Citizens United. Citizens United was a ruling by the supreme court of America that allowed private businesses and companies to invest into political parties without having to disclose the amount publicly, and by getting tax exemption for the amount given. This naturally led to a lot of financial discrepancies in the political parties and widened the gap between the common people in America and the political parties themselves. This system allowed people with a lot of money to get more of a say in matters of politics than the common people, as it should be in a democracy. Naturally, a lot of unrest started emerging among the common people in America, giving rise to more troubles than actual resolutions like it was intended to.

People started to abuse this system for their gain without considering the consequence that it would have on the general populous of America. Donations were becoming a way of asking for favors, and political parties were inclined to take them or risk losing an election because of a unthorough campaign.

Ending Citizens United would be a huge victory for the country and the people living in it. By ending this, the common people will have all the information of what goes on in political parties and will also be able to have a more transparent system, allowing them to know what goes on in the government better. Unfortunately, the Republican Party currently ruling the nation does not want to put an end to Citizens United, because that would result in a lot of the things in their party being out in the open, which is not something they want according to alreporter.com. The Republican Party has exploited this system of Citizens United, so much so that some people who are currently holding positions in office have only attained said positions through enormous donations that they have made to the party.

The only way America can see an end to the Citizens United ruling is by re-electing the Democratic Party, who are actually in favor of overturning this decision. This is where End Citizens United comes in. Because they are a political action committee, the goal of the organization is to support the democratic party and help them in campaigning to win the next election. At the same time, the organization has done an incredible amount to show the public just what is going on in the Republican Party and all the unethical practices that take place. Even though the End Citizens United was only formed in 2015, they have made an incredible amount of progress in reaching their goals, and have also received support from thousands of people all over America.
