End Citizens United: How They are Rallying Against Big Money Politics

The United States of America will be holding its midterm elections in 2018, and several political action committees, like End Citizens United, have started its vocal support for some candidates who would run in the midterm elections. They are endorsing the candidates who are “clean” by their standards, while at the same time advising the public not to vote for those who are involved in Big Money Politics. End Citizens United is a known critique of those who are participating in Big Money Politics, and they even released a complete set of names of those who have benefited from the infamous scheme, with all of the politicians on the list being from the Republican Party.

End Citizens United was established in 2015, as a response to another group called Citizens United that was established decades earlier. According to the political action committee, the Supreme Court voted in favor of Citizens United in their 2010 ruling which gave way to giant corporations to endorse the politicians that they wanted to win. End Citizens is saying that this decision from the United States Supreme Court has empowered the wealthy to control the outcome of the election in the United States. They are warning the public that if there were no action against the United States Supreme Court, the elections in the United States would become unimportant and forgotten, as the wealthy corporations would be the ones left with the voice on choosing who should lead the United States.

End Citizens United wanted the candidates with a great platform to win the election. After Donald J. Trump won the presidential elections in 2016 through Electoral College, several political action committees have protested that the election was rigged. After they did everything to oust the president out of the White House, these political action committees realized that they could not do anything to unseat the current president in power, so they asked for the help from their members and persuaded them to donate.

As of 2018, End Citizens United have already collected tens of millions of dollars from their members scattered all across the country. They said that the money entrusted to them would be used to bring change to the country, and they will do everything that they can to ensure that all of the politicians who have benefited from the Big Money Politics would be kicked out of the Congress. They are saying that these politicians are being backed by wealthy businesses which control the people and the government for their greed.

What George Soros Has Planned For 2017

The Largest Campaign Ever
2016 was a big year for George Soros. For the first time in years, George Soros made million dollar campaign contributions. The majority of these contributions were donated to the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. After his disappointments with the Obama administration, which Soros regards as less liberal than hoped for, he had high hopes for the Democrat nominee. Unfortunately for Soros, those hopes were quickly slashed by an unexpected victory by the Republican nominee Donald J. Trump.

The Shocking Turn Of Events
Most polls placed Hillary Clinton in the lead by a large margin on both the national and state level on theatlantic.com. However, election night results delivered a shocking twist with Trump doing exceptionally well in swing states such as Florida and Pennsylvania. Additionally, he saw success in other unexpected areas such as Wisconsin. The campaign success of Donald Trump was primarily an electoral college victory. Hillary Clinton still managed to win the popular vote by a margin of approximately 2.9 million votes on Biography, but these votes were not concentrated in the states she needed to win.

Recovering From The Loss
Although these failures were unexpected, Soros still has a plan for the left. He is currently meeting with fellow progressive donors in order to plot his next move from this point on. With the help of Democrat leaders such as Nancy Pelosi and donors such as the Democracy Alliance at https://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/people/george-soros, an organization consisting largely of progressive donors, Soros hopes to stage a comeback. Before that comeback can begin Soros intends to stall the agenda of Donald Trump. Trump has promised he will address the issues of immigration and jobs in his first 100 days, but Democrats intend to prevent this from happening.

A Moment To Rethink
He has generated a fortune of more than $25 billion over the course of his life by making the right predictions and acting on those predictions. As a strong believer in progressive values, Soros has taken the same strategies that helped him in finance into the world of politics. Liberalism is currently experiencing a crisis while the right is finally returning to power.  If he can find a way for the left to recover, we might find ourselves talking about how conservatives dropped the ball in the future.
