End Citizen United Aims At Ending Corruption

End Citizens United is a political movement that was formed early 2015 with an effort to create transparency in the American elections. Its principal aim is to eradicate corruption. It also spearheaded the fight against the American Supreme Court’s decision of considering only the rich and corporate people to fund America’s elections.

This funding had led to the diminishing of election balance. Previously, there was little, if any, transparency and accountability in the general elections. These rich people were only funding the polls expecting a favor in return.

End Citizens United is focused on bringing transparency and accountability to the American citizens. By doing this, lawmakers will be forced to take action against those trying to buy the elections, and in return, fairness will be struck.

To end political rigging, the movement has collaborated with grass root donors. It has also raised the issue to the national level. This mission will be successful by the movement’s election of new pro-reform candidates, disclosing the money used in politics, passing pro-reform laws in the country and demonstration of political power by use of grass root membership.

End Citizens United is committed to seeing that the voice of all citizens in the country is well-voiced and heard not only during but also after elections. Those willing to donate and or sponsor the campaigns are to be transparent and honest about their motives and their source of money.

However, the Republicans, in power who have not embraced it wholeheartedly, are hampering the progress of End Citizen United. They are not ready to overturn the Supreme Court ruling in favor of the rich and the corporates. This has not put the spirit of End Citizen United movement down. It has continued to support those who are ready to be transparent with their finances, during and after political campaigns.

Pro-reform candidates have been given a chance by End Citizens United to post their requests. This range from their willingness to be donated for, to showing how reformed they are regarding finances.

End Citizen United is still growing and calling upon people to join it. Joining the movement will help in ending corruption in the country and seeing to it that the American people get equality and equity. It further and fully supports those who put the needs of the citizens first and aim at improving the lives of all communities.

ECU Backed Beto O’Rourke Is Closing the Gap on Ted Cruz

End Citizens United (ECU) is backing Democratic candidates for the 2018 mid-term elections. One of those candidates is Beto O’Rourke the Democratic contender for the Senate seat of the incumbent, Ted Cruz. So far this year, the GOP has lost 34 seats. The Democrats gained many of these seats in areas not leaning Democratic. The Democrats have used a method of capturing votes that appears to allude most GOP candidates. The GOP pours money into campaigns, but the Democratic candidates are hitting the street and knocking on doors and many are being supported by End Citizens United and its grass roots fund raising.

When you compare Ted Cruz’s campaign to that of Beto O’Rourke, you see a striking difference. Ted Cruz seems to focus on his name recognition as he has held this seat for six years. During that time, several tornadoes touched down in Texas. One of the eight, Hurricane Harvey was devastating, leaving Texans flooded out of their homes for weeks. Ted Cruz is keeping in step with the other GOP leaders who have swept issues concerning climate change to the side. Visit their page on Facebook.

Beto O’Rourke is focusing on the effects of climate change. Because of his commitment to the subject, he has received two endorsements that count: End Citizens United and the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund. They have backed him because they seek politicians who are pro-environment and will protect the earth and make conservation a priority.

The environmental issues and his hands on approach are helping Beto O’Rourke close the gap between himself and Cruz. While Cruz is the more familiar name, it’s not always for positive reasons. Cruz has a horrible record in protecting the environment. Until the last few years, the Texas population agreed with him and was not as concerned. However, the recent extreme weather in Texas has brought it front and center in most Texans’ minds.

The End Citizens United polls show O’Rourke is closing the gap with Cruz. They have less than fifteen points separating them. O’Rourke has covered the whole of Texas and spoke to thousands of Texans face to face while Cruz depends on Texans knowing who he is and he’s hoping President Trump can give him a boost with one of his energizing rallies. Still, it’s not the same as talking to the individual voter and hearing their concerns.
