End Citizens United Ambitious Dream to Amend the Constitution

All Americans who love democracy are not happy about the fact that super PACs have found their way into the politics of the country and are now calling the stakes in the elections. If the just concluded election is anything to go by, there is a lot that needs to be done to clean up the sources that politicians source their campaign funds. One group that has an ambitious dream to amend this aspect of the constitution is End Citizens United. The group was created with the goal of raising funds from the public to support their candidates of choice. Now that the elections have been concluded, the PAC has another item on their agenda. They are hoping to have the constitution amended to lock out Super PACs out of the electoral process.

 

When they started the last campaign cycle, it seemed as if they did not have enough to go by, but by the time the elections cycle was concluding, they had managed to raise more than $25 million to support their candidates. Now they are making headlines of their own because of the large fund amounts they have received in the first quarter of the year. The management of the PAC states that they have received more than 40,000 donations from people who had never donated before. They add that this is because, after the disappointing election results, many people were left feeling helpless. These people all believe that making a contribution to fund ECUs activities is the least they can do to bring some positive change in the society.

 

The dream to have the constitution amended may seem a little over ambitious for spectators. The skepticism is because to have the motion considered; the group needs to collect a million signatures from the masses. So far, they have managed 300,000 and are hoping that by joining hands with the movement known as ready for Hillary, they will manage to raise the remaining signatures. Ready for Hillary has more 4 million followers. The group is gearing up for the congressional mid-terms which will be held in 2018. They are projecting that they will have raised more than $35 million to help in their campaigns by then.

 

The president and chief executive officer of the group, Tiffany Muller believes that contrary to the beliefs of some people, they are getting somewhere with their brand of grassroots activism. She believes that they will manage to remove the influence of big money on politics and that the impact of corrupt people such as the Koch brothers will soon be a thing of the past in American politics. It is possible to support the group by making a contribution to their Go Fund Me Campaign, which is still open.
