End Citizens United 2018 Plans for Finance Reform and Political Spending

End Citizens United was created with the idea in mind to fight the big money that seems to rule our political scene. They want to see a system that is not rigged by implementing elections campaign reforms for finance passed on state ballots.

 

They will try to fulfill this mission by the election of pro-reform candidates, and by bringing the issue of money on the political front to the forefront as a national priority. They also want to, show the power politics has on the issue of money in politics, and demonstrate this political power by having a grassroots membership.

 

The 2010 decision that the Supreme Court handed down in f Citizens United vs. F.E.C changed the outlook of the elections. This decision opened the door so that untraceable money could be spent in unlimited quantities by special interest groups, and billionaires. These are the people who are trying very hard to put the balance of the political power into their hands, which means that there is no accountability.

 

Now it is time to fight back. The formation of End Citizens United, a Political Action Committee, with their funding donated by a grassroots membership hopes to counter the effects, that are oft times disastrous, that the Citizens United group use. The plan is to reform the finance system used in political campaigns.

 

In 2016 the committee, which supports the Democrats, wants to funnel, to the Democratic candidates who are running competitively, tens of millions of dollars, in the Senate and House races throughout the country.

 

They amassed over $4 million in the first three months of the year and plan to raise at least $35 million before the 2018 elections for Congress. In its first election cycle in 2016 they raised $25 million so the $35 million they project for the 2018 election year would be a tremendous jump for them. They are striving to elect finance reform champions to Congress in the upcoming 2018 elections.

 

End Citizens United is limited to the amount that any one donor can give them as they are a traditional PAC. Even though they are restricted in the amount they can accept they went to the top of the Democratic-aligned groups rank during the 2016 elections.

 

With the knowledge that undisclosed campaign donations are way out of control, the End Citizens United group has said that they would do everything in their power to support those candidates that are champions for campaign finance reform.

 

 

Charles Koch, Republican nominees should compete on making a better country

Charles Koch, a distinguished entrepreneur, and a philanthropist stated that he and his Brother David Koch are not interested in politics, and they would not attend GOP Convention in July. This is according to an interview with ABC News. Charles Koch reiterated that they were not going to support somebody because they are republican or be against them because they are Democrat. He added that if Democrat did a good job, they would avail their support.

Koch explained that he differs with positions held by some candidates regarding various matters, but we deserve a president who on balance demonstrates set of values and ideas that will lead to well-being, civility, and peace, rather than contempt, conflict, and division. He discussed the inappropriate conduct of Republican nominees that is being experienced in the campaign trails. He argued that they should compete on how to make United State a better country, but they are competing based on tearing down their opponents. Charles referred to the republican nominee as “terrible role models” he expressed his disappointment saying, “I don’t know how we could support them”. He added that Hillary Clinton would probably make a better president.

Koch told ABC News that they would like to get their money out of politics, and the best way to do that is to get all the benefit the government is giving to special interest out, and that is what they are trying to do. From the interview, we can deduce that when it comes to electing our next president, we should elect a republican or a democrat candidate that has shown commitment to principles of free society. Principles that does not infringe ability of others to live their life as they see fit, as long they do not infringe other people rights to do the same. These include free speech, equality before the law, free market, respect and tolerance, and treating people with dignity.

Understanding the Koch Brothers

The Koch brothers have been the subject of wild speculation and misunderstanding in recent years for their financial backing of free market and libertarian political causes. The multi billionaire industrialist brothers have been in their fair share of the media spotlight and are often portrayed as devious and manipulative in their support of certain political candidates. In an effort to better understand the true story behind the Koch brothers, Moyers & Company published an article which explains five myths surrounding the Koch brothers and the real truth behind their activities.

One of the common myths about Charles Koch is that they are just operating out on their own to support their pet conservative candidates, whom they hope will do their bidding while in office. This completely ignores the fact that the Koch brothers are supported by an entire network of wealthy conservatives, many of whom are highly regarded business leaders, who all share the common goal of supporting free market economics and the political candidates whom they think are best positioned to do so. Also, the organizations funded in part by the Koch brothers are much more than simply a lobbying group for their own company, Koch Industries. Rather, Charles Koch funds something much bigger — a broader approach to free market policies, which they believe are this country’s hope for prosperity and individual freedom. While this may align with business interests, the Koch brothers’ mission spreads far wider than their own profit margins. One of the other myths that the article takes on is that the Koch brothers are at odds with the Republican party and seek to undermine the party’s efforts. Instead, the Koch brothers see their interests as aligned with the GOP because they seek to harness the GOP to scale back the size of government and keep big government away from the free market and individual freedoms.

Along with his brother, David Koch, Charles Koch inherited Koch Industries from their father. The brothers now run the company and have amassed serious wealth in doing so. They have been widely consulted for their economic insight and business savvy. Charles Koch published two books in 2007 and 2015 detailing the philosophy behind his business success and why he supports free market economics.
