Bought Elections and the End Citizens United.

Democracy is one of the gifts that the free world has given its citizens. The freedom to elect people that stand for their policies and represent them in the lawmaking process of the country. It is the only form of government that gives all, including the lowest members of the Caste, the right of choice and power in their countries. This freedom, democratic freedom, is only achieved in free, fair and transparent elections which is not the case when candidates are “paid” or “bought” by the wealthy in the society. When individual one percenters endorse a candidate to Congress, they maintain control of the office or position of the candidate. This mutes the voice of the rest 99 percent and drags public participation and progress in the mud. That’s why the End Citizens United committee was established in 2015. Visit their page on Facebook.

This founding of End Citizen United was triggered by a court ruling that deregulated the limits on independent fundings and spending for or against a candidate. The Citizens United Vs Federal election commission court ruling was in 2010 and the holding was that optical spending was a form of protected speech in the 1st amendment in the constitution and that the government should not keep corporations from funding or endorsing candidates, under the notion “corporations are people”.

The mission of End Citizens United is to end rigged elections and put an end to billionaires “big money” involvement in elections by electing campaign finance reform candidates to help them undermine and end citizens united and untraceable unlimited money in politics. Objectives of End Citizens United in pursuit of their mission are as follows, first is the election of pro-reform candidates to Congress, making the issues of political financing a national priority, using the grassroots membership to shift the political financing power from the wealthy and finally to work with ballot measures commission to pass pro-reform laws.

The End Citizen United has developed a very transparent website that allows viewers to see the progress of their funds, what the committee does and profiles on their pro-reform candidates. This is the level of voter participation that ensures that democracy is upheld and everyone enjoys their right as voters.

End Citizens United’s Comprehensive Plan To End Citizens United

Our democracy is directly under attack. It seems that large corporations and the wealthy can simply buy the government these days. And it was all started by a Supreme Court decision known as Citizens United.

In 2008, Citizens United was a little known political action committee trying to air a 90-minute fake documentary about Hillary Clinton. They broke FEC rules by trying to air the film to close to election day. They were denied the right to air the propaganda, and, of course, Citizens United filed suit.

Citizens United was told no by the FEC and other federal courts. Then the Supreme Court chose the case completely out of the blue. Five conservative justices then returned one of the most jaw-dropping decisions in the history of the Republic. They somehow spun logical circles fast enough to get dizzy in order to say that corporations are people. Read more news about the group on USA Today.

I don’t know about you, but I have never met a corporate person. However, this incredibly stupid decision is now affecting each and every one of our lives. It allows these corporate persons to express free speech with the use of cash in order to influence elections.

I only take solace in the fact that End Citizens United was assembled just a few years later. The grassroots organization is inspiring with a multilevel plan to take power back from corporations.

The group travels the country to endorse Democratic candidates that want to end Citizens United. They turn their fundraising powers on for the candidate in order to raise money to fight off the corporations that will inevitably attack. End Citizens United only takes money from individuals and never takes donations from corporations. They have quite the fundraising capability and they are currently using it to aid Beto O’Rourke in his Senate race with Ted Cruz.

They’ve also dispatched campaign-finance advocates to watch over critical elections across the country. End Citizens United has filed a lawsuit against Rick Scott in his bid for a Senate seat in the state of Florida. They just caught him coordinating with his super PAC which is against campaign finance law.

NGP VAN Has Exciting News About Finding Campaign Success

NGP VAN, the leading company in campaign software, recently shared a few ways in which politicians can start successful campaigns.

 

The first way a politician can start a successful campaign is by creating a specific logo and brand. The logo and brand should stick out when people see it. The picture and wording should fit the message of the politician, and it should also make voters feel good about themselves. This logo and brand must be carefully thought out because the logo cannot change halfway through the campaign. Changing a logo is a bad sign. It says the politician is someone who is unsure.

 

The next way a politician can start a successful campaign is by dedicating his/her social media life to the campaign. Every social media page and post should contribute to the overall campaign. It is also a good idea to have a separate page specifically dedicated to the campaign, but, overall, all social media doings should focus solely on the campaign. One effective tool for social media is to have the politician in as many pictures as possible with a variety/diversity of people.

 

 

NGP VAN technology is beginning to transform campaigns. For starters, they help politicians develop a data package. This means supporters can donate money to the campaign through a private website put together by NGP VAN, and the website/domain will be fully tailored to the politician/campaign.

 

After a supporter donates, NGP VAN takes the liberty of locating all of the different ways to contact this supporter. These ways include email, social media, text message, and more. Whenever the politician is going to speak or has an event, every supporter will receive notification through every form of contact. Additionally, supporters are encouraged to share the information they receive with their family and friends.

End Citizens United Pushes For Election Campaign Reforms In 2018

End Citizens United (ECU), a Political Action Committee subsidized by the grassroots, was founded on the 1st of March 2015. End Citizens United is dedicated in refuting the catastrophic impact of Citizens United and revolutionizing the finance system of election campaigns.

The ultimate objective of ECU is to put an into to the Big Money within the United States politics, and resolved the manipulated political scheme through the elevation of this particular problem in the national conversation, taking measures in the passing of state ballots, and the election of pro-reform campaign finance champions. End Citizens United will collaborate closely with the aforementioned champions to terminate the undisclosed and unlimited money in politics, as well as to upend Citizens United.

The PAC will strive towards this objective by means of:

-Utilizing the membership of grassroots to portray political power on the concerns of money within politics.
-Employing ballot campaign measures for pro-reform laws in the various states.
-Broaching the matter of money in politics as an important national issue.
-Nominating pro-reform candidates.

Lately, ECU exposed the 20 Republican congress Members it would focus on in 2018. ECU labels them as the “Big Money 20,” which is a group of republicans have given special considerations by opposing finance campaign reform, backing legislation that profited their big donors, accepting big donations, and favoring groups or individuals more than their constituents.

The Big Money 20 are as follows:

Se. Ted Cruz (Texas), Sen Dean Heller (Nevada), House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wisconsin), Rep Mike Bishop (Michigan), Rep Rod Blum (Iowa), Rep. Mike Bost (Illinois), Rep. Mike Coffman (Colorado), Rep. Ryan Costello (Pennsylvania), Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (New Jersey), Rep. Duncan Hunter (California), Rep. Will Hurd (Texas), Rep. Darell Issa (California), Rep. Tom MacArthur (New Jersey), Rep. Pat Meehan (Pennsylvania), Rep. Erik Paulsen (Minnesota), Rep. Rob Pittinger (North Carolina), Rep. Dana Rohrbacher (California), Rep. Peter Roskam (Illinois), Rep. Claudia Tenney (New York), Rep. Mimi Walters (California).

ECU’s goal is to procure and expend $35 million on the re-election races for the 2018 election round, this is an outpouring of $10 million extra compared to the $25 million that the PAC spent in 2016. Majority of the Big Money 20 re-electionists will have a difficult time winning the election; however, most independent analysts do not consider Ryan or Cruz vulnerable.

Since ECU is a conventional political action committee, it does not accept donations that exceed $5,000. The fundraising objective is based on the small contributions of its over 3 million members.
