The End Citizens United is the Voice of Americans
With the decision made by the Supreme Court in 2010, the United States’ election has never been the same. The Supreme Court passed a law allowing people vying for different positions to use as much money as they need without being subjected to an investigation into the source of money. This literally meant that elections could be bought in the United States. With the existence of this law, the rich had more chances of winning because they could buy the elections at the expense of the poor who could not afford to spend large sums of money.
The 2010 law led to the formation of End Citizens United in 2015 which was meant to fight the big wigs in America who were willing to spend a fortune in order to win elections. Contrary to the large corporations which are financed by the rich, End Citizens united is sponsored by the common citizens from grassroots who give their donations with the goal of getting leaders of their own choice to win elections. According to Richard Carbo, who is the Director of Communication, the group targets to collect up to 30 million dollars that will be used to achieve the group’s goal.

Reasons Candidates are running away from Corporate PAC Sponsorship
Since the End Citizens united group was formed numerous candidates especially the ones from the Democratic Party have started refusing sponsorship from the corporate PAC. Besides the fact that PAC majorly gave money to the candidates who are seeking reelections for various posts, recently none of them have accepted the money offered by the PAC. Most of the candidates have refused to receive the sponsorship because they believe that citizens perceive those leaders who refuse to take the corporate money as leaders who have the interests of the common citizens.
The war between the End Citizens and PAC Corporate began when the Democratic leaders realized that majority of the decisions especially those that relate to finance were decided by the leaders sponsored by PAC Corporations. Majority of these decisions were often decided against the needs of the average Americans. This became a problem for the common citizens who decided to give their donations that will be used to sponsor leaders who protect their interests.
