End Citizens United: Helping to End Politics For Profit

The innocently titled 2010 Supreme Court decision, Citizens United, is sadly the beginning of the end of our Democratic Republic. Citizens United grants rights to corporations that allows for unlimited and anonymous election campaign funding. This disastrous decision gives way to those with the most wealth to basically bribe politicians to create and vote in favor of policies that help corporations to make even more money. For these reasons, End Citizens United was founded to help put an end to politicians with souls that are up for grabs to the highest bidder. Visit End Citizen United on Twitter for more updates.

This Supreme Court decision has caused a deregulation of election and campaign funding and, instead, has turned politics into an unmonitored industry for both corporations and candidates to profit from. End Citizens United works with election campaigns to review candidates and offer grassroots funding if they complete a pledge. They do this to counteract the offerings provided to candidates from big-money corporations and ill-intentioned political action campaigns.

Candidates vying for this opportunity vow to refuse corporate campaign donations and instead promise to do all they can to help in putting a stop to Citizens United. By vetting candidates for public office in this manner, End Citizens United is able to assist with giving the public an opportunity to choose from candidates with their best interests in mind.

End Citizens United’s mission is to support candidates who refuse corporate funding, while also promoting the cessation of Citizen’s United. The only way to accomplish this is through a diligent grassroots funding campaign. This will not only help to promote and support candidates at a local level but will help to elevate them to the federal stage. Through political activism, grassroots campaign and funding strategies will have a chance to change things. Additionally, End Citizen’s United will also have the opportunity to change the world.
