With how the current political scenario is shaping up in the United States, numerous people are standing up and fighting for their rights to a proper system of governance. People all over the country are coming forward and protesting against the unjust systems in the country and to ensure that the country is run by the best and most efficient for the upliftment of the people and the American Society. However, a lot of people are seeing their efforts going to vain because of a law that was passed by the Supreme Court a few years ago. Citizens United was a bill that gave big companies and corporations a chance to speak up in the system of politics. It granted companies the same privileges as the people of America, along with the same rights that are shared by all the people within the state.
However, after the passing of this bill, there was a sudden surge of power that big business suddenly had, especially in the face of political parties. As a result, big business who were investing into political parties and its candidates started having a lot more power over these parties, swaying the promises that these parties were saying they would make. It would seem that these political parties were now basically fighting for the rights of big business, and striving to make laws that would benefit the growth of said companies. Slowly, political parties started focusing on the advantages that they could give large corporations as opposed to the actual people who were living in the country. The citizens of the country began receiving the backseat and started feeling like if they didn’t have a significant amount of money to donate to political parties, their voices would not be heard, which goes against the very nature of and principals of democracy.
End Citizens United was a movement started by grassroots entrepreneurs who believed that they should fight to give the power of governance back to the people just like in a real proper functioning democracy. The organization believes that only people who are fit and qualified for various positions in the government should be given those jobs for the benefit of the country. According to the organization, especially now in the light of Donald Trumps presidency, a lot of people who aren’t qualified for positions are being given such titles, because they have big business who have donated big amounts to the Republican Party.
End Citizens United believes that the Democratic Party is the one that should come into power because of the laws and policies that they want to put into place. The organization is now fighting for the reappointment of individual members to ensure that they American Citizens are governed by a right and a just group of people.
