The history of politics minimizes America is a history of firsts. While the United States of America may not be the very first democracy that has ever been in existence on the planet Earth, it has definitely become one of the most prominent ones to have ever existed. In 2010 there was a controversial decision made by the highest level of courts in the in of states of America, the Supreme Court, that has allowed the elimination of regulations that once existed in place to limit the influence of individuals who had incredibly large sums of money on politics. This Supreme Court decision is known as Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commision. After this decision was made by the Supreme Court grassroots activism was spurred in the United of America. This grassroots activism eventually culminated in the creation of a new political action committee known as End Citizens United. End Citizens United has gone on to become one of the most significant forces in politics in the United States of America.
I have always gone to where the fight is – and after seeing the threat that Donald Trump has brought to hard working Americans and the Republican Congress that has enabled him, my wife and I knew that we needed to stand up and fight once again. Watch our new ad here. pic.twitter.com/5IpPTJGbVK

End Citizens United is funded to sold through grassroots activism methodologies. They have publicly endorsed a number of candidates for political office that they believe are champions of campaign-finance reform. End Citizens United is focused on the elimination of the influence of big money in politics. Over the last several years they have generated over $30 million in campaign donations and have used these donations in order to fund the campaigns of politicians who have sworn off the acceptance of donations from corporate political action committees. In addition, this grassroots activist political action committee has also developed a legal strategy in order to attack individuals that they believe are using the current system of political campaign finance.
One example of this political strategy is the recent complaint that was filed by the organization against the politician Rick Scott. Rick Scott has run for political office and has accepted an incredibly large sum of donations from a political action committee. The problem with this is that political action committee which she has accepted donations from has previously existing ties with him. If this is true, then it presents a potential conflict of interest that will eventually lead to some serious issues. In effect, this organization is attempting to create a complete Reformation of the political campaign financing strategy that is currently in existence of the United States of America.
