As the 2018 mid-term approaches PAC organization End Citizens United releases its advocation of political candidates. The organization is devoted to getting advocates for election reform seated, and investigates candidates it believes are guilty of accepting money from corporations. Before elections ECU looks at candidates who will work to end Citizens Unites and the precedent it sets.End Citizens Unites is the PAC borne of the 2010 Supreme Court Decision in favor of Citizens United. The decision redefined the first amendment as pertaining to both individual and corporations. It effectively removed any and all limitations Big Money had, allowing campaign contributions to come in bulk.
One of the candidates being advocated for by ECU is Randy Brice.Randy Brice is a former iron worker and veteran who is aiming for the Speaker of the House seat about to be evacuated by Paul Ryan. The candidate relies on small donations to see his election through. Trying to get a Speaker of the House seat is a difficult task, but Brice is up to doing it without Big Money. This is what makes him attractive to ECU.In order to reverse the 2010 case legislation has to be passed that redefines the first amendment. The amended amendment would define free speech as a luxury of the individual. The ruling would bring back limitations, and allow many to breath in relief.
Many doubt that elections will ever be the same, as corporations can buy both candidate and policy. End Citizens United is dedicated to stopping that.For this purpose End Citizens United supports candidates who stand for election reform, and fight candidates guilty of using corporation contributions. The fight is a game of chess, where pieces have to be moved off the board to make way for others. End Citizens United endures that their pieces remain so that the necessary legislation will pass.
