End Citizens United is an organization that was founded in the aftermath of the Citizens United Ruling by the Supreme Court in 2010. It was a ruling which allowed political parties to take funds and donations from big corporations and businesses without having to utter a word about these amounts or even pay taxes on them. The ruling was passed with the intent of promoting donations to political parties but was something that took a turn for the worse, resulting in more hardships than positives.
One of the biggest struggles in the aftermath of the ruling was the people’s ability to be heard. Political parties started paying more attention to those who could give them a lot of money and less on the common man who was voting for them. This caused more and more people in America to be frustrated with the system, thereby demanding changes and reforms according to indeed.com. But merely requiring something isn’t enough to have an impact on the system. The fact of the matter is that the party that is currently in power is one of the biggest supporters of the ruling. The Republican has had a long list of supporters who make it to the whos-who lists and who would want to donate to the party. To them, it means more funds for a small trade off in focusing on them and their needs. It works out for the Republican Party, even though it may be detrimental to the development and growth that the people in America.
The need for change is evident. People all over the country want to have their views and opinions heard and wanted to bring about change on a large scale. People want to live in a country that is just and moves along keeping the best interest of the many in mind, not just those who have a lot of money and are willing to donate to corrupt political parties.

Right now, the only thing standing in the way of the Citizens United ruling being overturned is the Republican Party. To this effect, the only way out is to elect people to the positions in the government who care about the development and future of people in America. End Citizens United has made it clear that the Democratic Party is the one that they support, not only because they want someone to go up against the Republican Party, but also because of the views and ideas that they stand for. The party seems to think along the same lines as End Citizens United and wants to listen to the people of America and what they have to say.
The organization makes their decisions on who to support based on thorough research of the candidate and also a strong analysis of the things that they stand for and the experience that they have had in government positions.
