One of the leading organizations in the US that is working towards the restoration of fair and just funding for political activities is known as End Citizen United. Although in the recent past there have been numerous claims that the PAC is making millions of dollars whereas it is against such donations, the truth is that the money the PAC gets comes from its supporters on the ground. The organization is building the support of as many Democrats as possible to fight against the presence of dirty money in American electoral politics which the group firmly believes has taken the dispensation of political processes captive and hostage.
What is perceived is some public quarters as an over the flow of money into the accounts of End Citizen United which in itself is a contravention of the very principles they are fighting against, is an indication that the group has massive grassroots support. For many months now, End Citizen United has been spearheading the struggle to transform the methods of financing campaign activities so that some form of sanity and fairness can be restored in the electoral process. The PAC was founded in March 2015, and from that time most of the donors aiding the activities of the group have been ordinary Americans. Right now, the nonprofit is building a bigger movement that will bring together all democratic forces to put pressure on the legitimacy of political fund contribution by billionaires.
The new movement will bring onboard Democratic legislators and other pro-reform lobbyists who will fight to put structures in place that will deter the syndicate of billionaires from taking control of the political system. The group’s mission is to disrupt the system the rich people use to dominate political interests by buying elections. The wealthy syndicates are threatening to uproot Democrats from mainstream political engagements. It is this reason that makes the PAC support Democratic candidates who can bring transformative legislations in both the Senate and the Congress.
The first approach the organization will employ is to nationalize the debate of big money spending in politics so that it becomes a public priority. And the second strategy will be the election of legislators who are known to be pro-reform so that they can push the agenda of change in both houses. End Citizen United will help the Democratic candidate for the Montana seat, Jon Tester, to defend his position and Senator of Ohio Sherrod Brown. The organization believes that leaders like the two can lead the struggle against excessive spending in politics. The recruitment strategy the group uses is open, and it can be viewed on the organization’s website. The endorsed candidates will fill a questionnaire, and then they will be enlisted as defenders of democracy.
