End Citizens United Coming to the Aid of the Johnson Amendment

The Johnson Amendment, a law that was enacted in 1954, and one of the laws that keep the citizens safe is in danger, as it was recently announced at the End Citizens United’s news page. The End Citizens United group, one of the grassroots groups responsible for raising awareness of the problematic effects of the Citizens United landmark and fighting against them, are doing their very best to prevent this fundamental law from getting repealed.

The Johnson Amendment is a law that keeps religious money out of politics. If this law is repealed, churches can be used as a tool for secret campaign spending. The End Citizens United Political Action Committee believes that if this happens, it would be a major catastrophe for American democracy. The law is very important in keeping apart businesses and corporative interests from the delicate rules of Democracy and politics. This is why End Citizens United is focusing all their resources into preventing the repeal of this law, especially as the political landscape in America has changed so drastically, with the President himself, Donald J Trump, declaring in 2016 that he would work hard to repeal the Johnson Amendment. Both forces are working against each other, but the End Citizens United PAC is not backing off.

In fact, there are thousands and hundreds of members and donors backing the plans of the End Citizens United Group. Since the creation of the group, they have multiplied the number of Americans who are aware of the problematic effects of the Citizens United landmark, and have incentivized citizens to fight for freedom of speech and for equality, as well as fight for the future of the nation.

End Citizens United and other groups must be vigilant and relentless in this fight. Because of how this fight is preventing the Johnson Amendment from being repealed, it is also one way of preventing dark and corrupted money from entering our politics. The Republicans will do everything to repeal this law with the help of Trump, and this is exactly why being vigilant all the time is crucial.

The End Citizens United was initially created by people who wanted to see the monetization of campaigns, something that started with the acceptance of the Citizens United landmark, go away. They have had successes since their foundation, but the fight is far from over. The group believes that 2018 will be a big year for their cause.

Most of their successes have been electing pro-reform Democrats by using the corrupted system that started with the Citizens United: The funding of the campaigns of your favorite candidates. As many billionaires and magnates do because of corporative interests, the End Citizens United group uses the broken system of this political mess to show how much it can be controlled with money, something that shouldn’t happen in politics.

The End Citizens United Group Fights For The Laws Introduced By Lyndon B. Johnson

 

During the 2016 U.S. Presidential election cycle, now-President Donald Trump made a number of controversial comments and promises but one meeting with little press attention was his promise to overturn Johnson’s Amendment. This piece of legislation was brought into law in 1954 when then-Senator Lyndon B. Johnson introduced a piece of legislation dedicated to keeping charitable organizations out of the U.S. political process; becoming known as the Johnson Amendment, the law threatened the tax-exempt status of charitable groups such as Churches, Charities, and schools if they provided funding for political parties and candidates across election cycles. This piece of legislation is now being fought for by End Citizens United even though it has been in place without controversy since 1954 and is now being threatened by an Executive Order from the President.

Republicans have been fighting to overturn Johnson’s Amendment using stealth tactics for a number of years and now hope to overturn the law by including an exemption for religious groups in the recently introduced tax reform bill. The biggest threat to JOhnson’s Amendment and the one being fought against hardest is that posed by President Trump’s Executive Order which calls on the IRS not to enforce the rule of law when it comes to the Johnson Amendment. End Citizens United states the battle for Johnson’s Amendment is far from over and states the fact Republican politicians are not brave enough to bring a vote to Congress which would repeal Johnson’s Amendment shows their understanding of the public feeling against any further softening of campaign financing rules.

End Citizens United was formed in 2015 as a reaction to the 2010 Supreme Court decision known as Citizens United which gave major corporations similar rights to those awarded to the citizens of the U.S. to fund political campaigns. The group announced in the buildup to the 2016 election it would be supporting Democrats in their pursuit of power in the coming elections as they were the most sympathetic to the cause of overturning Citizens United; in the buildup to the 2016 Presidential election cycle, End Citizens United raised $25 million in funding and is hoping to raise around $35 million in funds by the 2018 midterm elections.

End Citizens United revealed the attempts to reduce the powers of Congress to enforce campaign financing rules had only just begun as big business and billionaire donors are having a much larger say in the way U.S. politics are run at all levels. The PAC has recently vowed to maintain its support of the fight against further campaign election funding rules being softened as these rights are bound to be threatened in the coming years.

A Vote For Trump is a Vote Against American Politics

George Clooney recently called Donald Trump a “xenophobic fascist.” Louis C.K. went off on a Trump tirade which included this comment:

“A vote for Trump is so clearly a gut-vote, and again I get it. But add a little brain to it and look the guy up. Because if you vote for him because of how you feel right now, the minute he’s president, you’re going to regret it.”

Some people are voting for Trump because they actually agree with his ideas and they like that he comes off as honest.

More and more, Dan Newlin and his legal team are wondering how many people are voting for Trump simply because they are completely fed up with the American political system. Newlin asks, is voting for Trump a way to get back at a government that seemingly gets nothing done?

Then the question becomes: Just how much power does the President actually have? Just how much power does the president really have? President Obama has been blocked by the republican congress at every turn. It really feels like nobody can agree on anything in Washington and that the entire system is a joke.

It isn’t much of a leap to go ahead and decide that if the whole system is a joke, why not vote in a joke for president?

A vote for Trump in some ways really feels more like a vote against American politics more than anything else. It’s a declaration: “We’d rather have this clown in office than one of you.”

It’s an amazing and terrifying time to be alive.
