Saving the Johnson Amendment

End Citizens United is calling all of their members to counter any actions by the United States government to remove the Johnson Amendment from the constitution. The appeal was made after President Donald Trump signed an executive order that would immediately weaken the scope of the amendment, and the Republican Party is suggesting the total removal of the amendment from the constitution. End Citizens United is an American political organization which was established in 2015 by concerned individuals who believe that the US national elections is no longer transparent and reputable, and that only a few people control the outcome of the election. They believe that private corporations has been given immense power by the United States Supreme Court in 2010 when the latter declared that the private companies and corporations can be treated as a private individual who can support their preferred candidates and can anonymously transfer an infinite amount of funds. End Citizens United is asking the United States Supreme Court to overturn their ruling, because it is slowly destroying the American reputation.

End Citizens United is conducting protests across the country because of the recent decision by the Trump Administration to remove the Johnson Amendment. According to them, this amendment is vital to the constitution because it prohibits private, non tax paying institutions from deliberately supporting or opposing a candidate. End Citizens United stated that once the Trump Administration suceeds in removing the Johnson Amendment, it will give the politicians a chance to use these organizations for their own gains. For example, a wealthy and powerful politician can donate his campaign money to the church for them to hide it from the eyes of the authorities. The politician can use the money any time he or she wanted, and there will be no tax because of the status of the church. This will corrupt the institution, and End Citizens United does not want it to happen. The White House already released a statement that the fate of the Johnson Amendment lies on the decision of the legislature, and they do not have any control regarding the outcome. End Citizens United encouraged their members to watch out for the action of the government, and they are appealing for their members to protect the amendment at all cost.

End Citizens United is serious about their desire to bring the power back to the hands of the people. Earlier this year, the group conducted a fund raising program which aims to support candidates for the 2018 United States National Elections who shares the same cause with the group. With millions of members across the United States supporting End Citizens United, they managed to raise $4 million easily, and experts added that the group can raise up to $32 million because of their immense numbers.
