The poor state of the union
Income inequality is at an all-time high in the United States, the most powerful and wealthiest country in human history. We have elderly citizens that are faced the choice of medication or nutrition due to price gouging run rampant by pharmaceutical companies; to add insult to injury the Trump Administration cut funding to the block grants that fund Meals On Wheels.We are the only modern nation that does not have a single-payer healthcare system. The average American citizen can work a full-time job and in many cases two jobs and still struggle to survive. How does that happen? Far too many of our politicians are owned by the corporations and far too many of us are separated by party lines and ideological beliefs. But we can unite under overlapping values. Our government should work for us and represent the will of the people.
The Fire Grows and Rises
In 2010 the supreme court betrayed the American people by siding with the fascistic corporations that rule our country via legal bribery. Thankfully the wisdom of the founding fathers of this country gave the people a big stick to fight back with…the constitutional amendment. An amendment to reverse the Supreme Court’s treason against the American people would represent victory. The political action committee End Citizens United has laid the kindling and has lit a bonfire on the shore of freedom. It is now our job to help feed this community fire until it can be seen from Capitol Hill and the Oval Office. Most of us have a growing disdain for the mainstream media. For USAToday and MSNBC to cover End Citizens United on their websites means the flames are rising.
What does the fire consist of?
- Thousands of first-time donors contributing.
- Over 325,000 people have signed the petition to pass legislature against super PAC’s.
- Over $4 million raised in the first quarter of 2017, projected to make over $35 million ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
- Incumbent and incompetent politicians from both parties are being primaried all over the country.
What is the manifesto of End Citizens United?
- Elect politicians that will represent the people.
- Pass a constitutional amendment to reverse the Supreme Courts verdict of Citizens United versus FEC.
- Bring back prosperity to all Americans, not just the one percent.
What can you do to help support End Citizens United?
- Spread the word by any means necessary, via word of mouth or the power of the internet social media, email, blogging etc.
- Donate whatever you can, it’s the average American versus the limitless funds of dark money.
- Put your differences aside and be an American.
The battle for the future of the U.S. political system may have been lost by the left in the 2016 Presidential election cycle, but hedge fund billionaire and liberal donor George Soros has decided to fight back against the rise of the right in a bid to find a successful future for the U.S. and the U.S. as a whole. After making his major return to political giving in 2016 the man who reportedly made $1 billion in a single day gambling on the devaluation of the British Pound has decided to continue his political work by fighting for the legacy of outgoing President Barrack Obama.
During the 2016 Presidential election cycle the return of George Soros to making major donations to Democratic candidates was seen as a sign of the importance of the year in U.S. history. Soros had largely sat out the 2008 and 2012 campaigns, but had looked to extend his 25 year political relationship with former First Lady Hillary Clinton with an estimated $25 million in funding for the candidate and her Super PAC’s; Hillary Clinton had provided George Soros with an open door to discuss policy for the future as she moved forward in her election battle with Republican Donald Trump.
George Soros had been working with many different groups throughout the 21st century in his bid to make sure the left in U.S. politics had a powerful voice, which resulted in the establishment of the Democracy Alliance made up of wealthy donors and top members of the Democratic party at http://time.com/4581137/george-soros-donald-trump-hate-crime-minorities-election/. Soros had not planned to attend the Democracy Alliance event following the 2016 elections, but changed his mind following the victory of Donald Trump and eventually attended as a speaker on the final day of the event. Aides and advisors close to George Soros have revealed the Holocaust survivor and former refugee from Communist rule believes a powerful response is needed to return the Democrat’s to a position of power in U.S. politics. The founder of the Open Society Foundations believes he is in a position to assist the Democrat’s and help the party protect the legacy of President Barrack Obama as they fight to regain power in Washington D.C.
