End Citizens United has been tasked with the unenviable job of trying to take back the United States government from the greedy and prying hands of special interests and corporate donors. End Citizens United is a political action committee that is being led by Tiffany Muller.
Their goal is to raise enough grassroots funding in order to help elect legislators who are willing to stand by campaign finance reform. The mess that the United States is in as a country can be dated back to the decisions made by the conservative group Citizens United, led by James Bopp. Let’s look at how history has been shaped by one party’s commitment to upending the value of American democracy.
James Bopp is a lawyer who has made it his mission in life to attack the very foundations upon which the United States government is built. Bopp leads the conservative group Citizens United and for the past decade he has been in charge of attacking the value of the American vote in as subtle a way as possible. His first assault began in 2010 when Bopp approached the Supreme Court in order to make the insane argument that corporations should be considered people and that corporate donations should be considered an extension of their free speech. Bopp’s argument seized upon decades old legislation in order to pass the sniff test before ultimately being accepted by the Supreme Court.

We can track the degradation of the United States’ political discourse in a direct line from the 2010 Supreme Court decision. Unfortunately many individuals on the right wing of America’s politics are in favor of having corporations take control of the government. Still, that doesn’t mean that everybody is sitting idly by. That is where End Citizens United comes into play and why Tiffany Muller’s work is so important to the future of America.
End Citizens United seeks to take power out of the hands of the corporate lobbyists who put millions of dollars to work every year swaying politicians. The goal of End Citizens United is to make the government once again work for the American people rather than the American corporation. End Citizens United is doing that by working directly with small time donors and grassroots activists who are willing to put in the work needed to fundraiser and make a change. Over the past three months End Citizens United has raised nearly $4 million in donations from 100,000 donors. The average donation amount is just $12 per person. Of these donors nearly 40% of them are donating for the first time, meaning that they are ready and willing to strike back against the destructive regime that Donald Trump has adopted in the White House.
