A few years back, GOP blob fish Ted Cruz released a ridiculous video on YouTube. It was nearly an hour long and showed him simply going about his day with his family. The video, which makes no sense to the average viewer, was made to assist his political action committees.
These PAC’s could use the footage to stitch together an advertisement for the horrendous GOP senator. And it is all made possible by Citizens United. The ridiculous Supreme Court decision has made it legal for giant corporations to pump unlimited amounts of money into political action committees in order to sway elections.
The decision simply states that corporations are people. This ridiculous mantra was repeated by Mitt Romney when he ran for president. And, because corporations are people, they receive first amendment protections so they are allowed to speak their “voice” by spending cash. It’s absolutely laughable. Of course, it came from a conservative-leaning court and a 5-4 ruling.

I am siding with End Citizens United. It’s a political action committee but they are committed to destroying Citizens United. I believe it is so important to support End Citizens United that I am voting for every candidate that they endorse.
One of those candidates is a congressman from El Paso, Texas. Beto O’Rourke is challenging the corporatist blob fish for his Senate seat in 2018. End Citizens United loves the upstart Democrat for the way he raises money. He takes no money from large corporations and only receives small donations from individuals. Who do you think he’ll fight for when he ends up in Washington?
End Citizens United and Beto O’Rourke like to point at Ted Cruz’s fundraising as what’s wrong with American politics. He takes giant sums of money from giant corporations who do not represent what’s best for the American people. He then marches off to Washington with his pockets stuffed and speaks for big business. But what’s most shocking is that he may be doing the bidding of companies not even based in Texas. Essentially, Citizens United ensures that the voice of the people is drowned out by the money of big business.
This is a new low for Paul Ryan’s super PAC. Our national security should come before politics. The Super PAC should destroy all copies of the form and agree to not use the information in any fashion. #VA07 https://t.co/TA1GCa95cj
