The special counsel’s investigation into Russian meddling in our elections is ongoing. It’s unclear whether President Trump colluded with a hostile foreign power to assume the office of the presidency. However, if the special counsel concludes that Trump did in fact directly collude in order to win the presidency, then his Supreme Court appointees should be removed. After all, they shouldn’t have been appointed in the first place if Trump stole the office. Read more news about the group on USA Today.
It is vital that we don’t let conservatives take control of the Supreme Court once again. After all, the conservative Supreme Court of 2008 gave us Citizens United. The decision made jaw-dropping logical leaps to conclude that corporations are people. And, as individual citizens of the United States, these corporations can enjoy the protections of the Constitution of the United States.
The second ridiculous logical jump concludes that freedom of speech is expressed through the spending of money. Thus no law can prohibit a corporation spending money to express itself as a person when it comes to elections. I know, it makes no sense.
End Citizens United is the political action committee working hardest to completely erase the findings of the decision. They are currently backing candidates like Beto O’Rourke in Texas that have agreed to fight against the decision when sworn into office. View the group’s profile on Politifact.com.
End Citizens United also works on the grassroots level to change local and state election laws to make it more difficult for corporations to influence voters. The group also keeps a keen eye on Republican candidates during elections to make sure that no campaign finance laws are broken. They’ve recently caught Rick Scott breaking campaign finance laws in Florida as he is currently corroborating with his own Super PAC.
End Citizens United is asking for your help to overturn the Supreme Court. You can donate to the candidates that the political action committee is currently endorsing, and you can lend a hand in changing local and state campaign laws. Eventually, End Citizens United and its backers want to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision altogether even if it takes the Herculean effort of a constitutional amendment.
