During August 2015 many political action groups were formed. However, the End Citizens United group was one of the more prominent ones. This particular political action group came together to reverse the decision of the Supreme Court made, namely “Citizens United”. The goal of the End Citizens United was the passing of a constitutional amendment. Over 4 000 people signed the petition for the constitutional amendment and the political action group raised over 26 million dollars. The political action group also announced publicly that it supports eleven Democratic candidates. Political action groups tend to seem very similar in the public eye and that they have almost no differences between one another. So why is End Citizens United seen as different from the rest? Communications director Richard Carbo recently stated that the group stands out because of the type of democratic candidates it endorses. End Citizens United supports candidates that both contribute to the group’s financial campaign and stand against the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. The political action group also endorses candidates that have been attacked by dark money groups. The End Citizens United political action group has the plan of setting up an avenue through which they can support the candidates they endorse by creating an independent promotion through emails, post mail, television adds, magazine and newspaper inserts and so on.
The public usually has divided opinions about political action groups. Many view them as bland and believe the maximum that if you have seen one of them, then you have seen all of them. Communications director Richard Carbo, however, readily argues against those opinions. While America hasn’t passed a constitutional amendment since 1992 and many believe it is highly unlikely for that to happen again shortly, there are those who believe that if the political action group raises enough for its financial campaign and also attracts enough supporters, then a new amendment can be passed. But even if the End Citizens United do not manage to achieve their goal and reverse the decision of the Supreme Court, the political group still plays a very important role in America’s political balance. Groups like End Citizens United serve as a connection bridge between the wide public of America and the Supreme Court. Both the public and the Supreme Court are vital institutions for the United States of America. Groups like End Citizens United serve as a reminder for the Supreme Court that better decisions need to be made to satisfy the wide public of America. That way the country will move forward, and there will be established a healthy dialogue between two of its most vital parts. The public and the highest commanding powers require that in every country.
