Since End Citizens United first started, they have been able to make over 4 million dollars. This is a large amount for such a new organization but the number that they are projected to make is even higher so that they can make a difference in the lives of United States citizens. They are going to be able to make over 35 million dollars during this year alone. If End Citizens United is able to keep doing what they are doing, they will have enough money that they can bring more awareness to the issues that come with citizens united. They also want to be able to show people that there is a major difference in the things that they can do with their own lives just based on the opportunities that they have while they are working toward different things for citizens united. As End Citizens United continues to grow, they will be able to show more people what they are missing out on as a result of citizens united.
For End Citizens United, the point of the organization is to make sure that citizens have the rights that they are entitled to. In the past, citizens were able to make a lot of donations to the candidates that they supported in politics. This was easy, especially in local elections, and allowed citizens a chance to really make a difference in a campaign. It was a great system and put a lot of power into the hands of all of the citizens who were voting.
Citizens United, though, changed all of this. Now, corporations can donate as much as they would like to the campaigns that they are supportive of. They can, obviously, donate more than citizens and it hurts the citizens by taking away some of the power that they have. For local elections, this can devastate the results. For bigger elections, like national ones, this can change the course of the United States and can have a negative impact on the things that people are able to do in their own lives.
While End Citizens United is going to keep working on making things better, they know that they need to have the support of people who want to see change. They don’t want problems with the things that they are doing and they certainly don’t want to have to deal with the problems that come along with fighting something like citizens united. They are planning on making a lot of changes and bringing more options to the people who are in different situations from what they are used to. End Citizens United is planning to bring more to the citizens so that they have political rights like corporations do.
