Politics in the United States centers on two major parties; the Democrats and Republicans. Before, 2010, the political scene in the Unites States was controlled entirely by the American citizens since they are the ones who for a very long time have wielded power to elect leaders. However, problems started to arise in 2010 when a significant constitutional amendment took place, a major change that allows prominent businesspersons and wealthy individuals to rally support for their most preferred candidates.
Due to these legal adjustments, billionaires have indirectly gained the right to control American systems mainly because it is through their donations and influence that most political leaders are in power today. Since 2010, things have been going on a downward spiral. The billionaires together with their puppet leaders have done what is best suits them, while at the same time left American Citizens to suffer. As a result, service delivery to the everyday citizen has become a nightmare, and that is why End Citizens United has come about so as to advocate for the rights of minority groups.
End Citizens United is a movement composed entirely of citizens, a five-member board and leaders from all over the country who feel that the American citizens are getting undermined by their leadership day in, day out. It is a movement that plans to oust puppet leaders out of power. One way of achieving this is by seeking courtroom justice, so as to have the 2010 amendments done away. Since its inception, it has been able to sign some petitions so as to see to it that wealthy and influential people no longer have the upper hand in national politics.
Besides, End Citizens United has chosen to rally support and even fund leadership that has the interests of the American people at heart. By bringing more people into a place of authority, it will be able to indirectly present its positive agenda through its leaders to Congress, something that might lead to a reversal of the 2010 constitutional amendments. In the just concluded national elections, the End Citizens United movement was able to support some Democratic Party leaders, some of whom got elected.
If at all End Citizens United manages to get corrupt leaders out of power, it will have helped alleviate the suffering of the American people. Also, removing already compromised leaders from public office will mean that billionaires no longer have the power to control the affairs of the nation. Therefore, End Citizens United is more likely to gain the upper hand since it is exploiting all options at its disposal. As the years pass by, so does the number of its affiliated members increase.
