End Citizens United is an American PAC created by James Bopp in 2013 to deal with the impunity that presently characterizes the United States electoral system. Before a 2010 court ruling that saw billionaires get the legal backing to support political candidates during national elections financially, the political climate in the U.S was one worth global admiration. However, things turned out for the worst, and since 2010, America and its people have gotten terrorized by a small group of wealthy and influential individuals.
To correct a rather irritating situation, James Bopp, a lawyer by profession chose to take matters into his hands. It is in 2013 that he brought End Citizens United to a realization, ushering a new age of community participation on issues politics. Four years later, End Citizens United has become darling to a vast majority of the American electorate. From the very beginning, it has been the primary agenda for the PAC to deal with the ‘billionaire’ problem head-on, but better still, to use the nation’s legal system to reverse the 2010 court ruling.
So far, End Citizens United has rallied the support of influential political leaders and other billionaires that have a foul taste for corruption. But more important is the fact that End Citizens United is now an organization entirely run by the people. In the few years that End Citizens United has been in existence, it has brought many grassroots leaders to a place of relevance, funding their campaigns using resources entirely contributed by its constituent members. For four years, End Citizens United has been a staunch supporter of the Democratic Party of America, a political machine that the PAC believes has not yet gotten corrupted.
Through its diverse team of leaders and other professionals, End Citizens United seems to be on the winning side. The PAC has been actively raising funds to support political candidates during the general elections, a fact previously witnessed in the national elections of 2016. At the beginning of 2016, End Citizens United had raised $2 million from its many members. Most of the money was used to mobilize campaigns for grassroots leaders and a section of its most preferred Democratic Party candidates. To the astonishment of many, most of the candidates that the PAC had supported during the elections found their way into different elective positions. With the 2016 elections being long gone, End Citizens United has its sights set on the Congress Elections of 2018.
Although End Citizens United has only banked $4 million at the moment, the PAC anticipates of achieving a target of $35 million at the beginning of 2018. From the preceding, End Citizens United, a PAC that is barely half a decade old, is now sending constant shivers down of the spines of the many American billionaires that have held the country’s development projects by the throat.
