What He Wants For The World

As a man who has made billions from international finance, he has decided to do everything he can to help others out and one way that he does this is through his work at the Open Society Foundation. The Open Society Foundation plays an important role in helping people across the world by giving support to immigration, to free trade, and other important issues.

How He Is Creating This

The way that George Soros sets about trying to promote Open Societies is by doing everything he can to encourage the creation of Open Societies by openly fighting for countries to adopt this model. his efforts have been successful so far and we can see examples of this in South Africa, Hungary and other countries. People want to see what they can possibly achieve and this is the best way so far for many of these goals to be done. Open societies are often misunderstood because many on the Right frequently claim that these undermine the will of the people. George Soros has proven that these ultimately benefit everyone.

Something For Everyone

Open societies work to the interest of everyone because they allow people to determine how they want to live their lives and where they will stand in life. This isn’t something you see every day, but it something that is important in the continuation of our world as we know it. We need to continue to do things that will allow people greater autonomy and ultimately allow them to choose how their lives will go. George Soros is only one guy trying to make it happen.

You’ll Be Talking About End Citizen’s United For The Next Four Years

D3
February 20, 2017

Corporations and wealthy people have bought your voice in politics. That is the message of End Citizen’s United, a Washington D.C. based PAC working to change the infamous Citizen’s United ruling from the Supreme Court in 2010.

The Citizen’s United decision essentially made it legal for corporations to funnel unlimited money to politicians as election donations on opensecrets.org. In other words, corporations have the same rights as individual people and can donate as much money as they want to elections. The inherent problem with the ruling was it opened the door for “dark” or untraceable money to be given to candidates with no accountability for its origination.

End Citizens United Steps Into The Fight
End Citizens United formed as a grassroots effort to change the impact of the ruling. Supreme Court decisions are usually the last word on legal decisions. However, there is a way to get around their judgments, by passing a constitutional amendment reversing the decision on Facebook.

End Citizens United is leading the fight against the ruling and garnering much support along the way. Founded in March of 2015, the PAC raised more than $2 million and established itself as a major player on the political game field. They also partnered with Hillary Clinton’s campaign, giving them exposure to more than 4 million supporters and financial partners.

Why End Citizen’s United Is Different
There are other PACs involved in campaign finance reform, but End Citizen’s United is taking a different approach on msnbc.com. They are actively seeking out and supporting candidates who support campaign finance reform. They fashioned a questionnaire given to all candidates asking for their opinions on reform. They post the responses of people they support so donors can see who receives their support.

End Citizen’s United also lives by the rules it supports. The company depends on, and receives, most of its support from a grassroots effort and small donations on endcitizensunited.org. They’ve received over 136,000 donations with the average donation being $14.86.
While End Citizen’s United focusses on reversing the Supreme Court decisions, they also hope to influence state and local campaign finance laws. Their end goal is to return the power of the people to the election process and not have corporations have the sole voice in politics.

Led By Experience And Passion
Veteran Political players comprise the leadership of End Citizens United. Congressman Ron Barber heads up their board. He has a 32-year career in government and has owned a private business for 22 years. The other board members are:

Jessica Vanden Berg
Christopher Massicote
Lanae Erickson Hatalsky

The election of President Trump has not stopped the organization from forging ahead on its mission. They continue to grow in support and political power.
