Even though America considers itself to be a nation that follows a system of democracy, the reality is far different. With the current political party in power, there is no secret that a large number of people in these high positions have only got there by paying huge amounts of money. These people may be owners of large organizations, but do not have the experience and knowledge of the political aspects of the country, which is why there is so much turmoil happening around us. The reason for this is because there is no transparency in the government.
Large organizations are allowed to donate to political parties as and when they like, without having to worry about anything else or the public finding out how much they have donated. This, however, leads to a whole other side of politics where large, influential people pay money in exchange for positions in the government. This has resulted in the government now worrying about only large organizations and how they can please them, rather than the people.
End Citizen’s United is an organization that was formed to combat this problem and to once again bring order to the American government. People in the country feel like their views and opinions in the system do not matter because they do not have the money to act as a microphone for those thoughts. People are now in a position where they have to keep quiet about all the things that they want to change and are just in a position where they have to adhere to what businessmen want to make. This has only been possible because of the Supreme Court’s ruling of ‘Citizen’s United’ where companies could donate to political parties without being questioned or accounted for. People want to have transparency in the political systems, and that is what End Citizens United is working towards. People want to be part of an organization that is working to bring change and want to be part of something that understands them and their needs, unlike the political systems which are the people who should be doing this.
The organization was founded by a group of people who share similar interests and who want to bring about change in the government. The organization has received an incredible response from people all over the country who want to be part of something that gives them the importance that they truly deserve. Within a few months of the organization coming into existence, End Citizen’s United raised almost four million dollars, which has helped them in their efforts at bringing about amendments in the government. Within the next year or so, the organization is projected to receive over thirty million in donations.
