Democracy, Political Activists

The elections in the country should be neutral and without any external influence. It is how the people of the nation would be able to trust the government and the leader. However, the elections in the United States are heavily influenced by the external forces, especially the corporations and high net worth individuals. These powerful entities want the government and leader of their choice to be selected by the people so that they can manipulate the government later on for their benefit. It handicaps the government and makes it impossible in many cases to function independently for the benefit of the voters. It is for this reason, it is seen that the political leaders make a lot of promises before the elections, but just don’t stand up to it after the elections are over.

It is for this reason Tiffany Mueller started End Citizens United, which is a political action committee that aims to turn over the decision of the Supreme Court to allow the corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money in funding the elections. The overhaul of the campaign finance rules would make it easier for the polls to be accountable and ensure that the people know which political candidate is working for the interest of the people and which candidate is in favor of the corporations and affluent individuals. End Citizens United aims to overhaul the Supreme Court decision of 2010 that it made in the case of the FEC and Citizens United. As per the choice, the Supreme Court allowed the individuals as well as the companies to spend the practically unlimited amount of money during the elections to fund their political campaigns.

Over the years, the amount of money being spent on the elections has been increasing and now run into millions of dollars. End Citizens United wants to stop the misuse of money and the manipulation of independent process such as elections, which decides the fate and future of the country. End Citizens United believes that if the country continues to be guided by the interest of the corporations and few wealthy individuals and families, then the benefit of the people would continue to be heavily compromised. End Citizens United financially backs the political candidates that have rejected the use of corporate money, and some of these candidates are Max Rose, Slyvia Garcia, Matt Morgan, Kattie Porter, Hiral Tipirneni, Debbie Stabenow, Gina Ortiz Jones, Abigail Spanberger, Nancy Soderberg, and more.
