Taking political activism to the next level

One of the things that have always gathered the attention of the entre globe is the American politics. When there is an election, you can always expect it to be followed with a lot of controversy as the land of the free tries to remold and redefine itself. Well, the just concluded elections might just be some of the most dramatic ones yet. To start with, it seemed like the democratic candidate was taking the day and everyone had gotten on board with the idea of Clinton holding the highest office in the planet. There were many non-governmental bodies that were rooting for her and everything she stood for. Well, even though she did not make it, it is safe to assume that the wave that she created might just fulfill some of the dreams that she had when starting her campaign for the office. One of the groups that had been supporting the agenda of the Democratic Party was the United PAC. They were looking for ways in which they could tunnel large sums of money to the campaign efforts of their preferred candidates. They had managed to raise $2million that they distributed to their preferred candidates and had a goal of raising even more before the election. In 2015, the director of the group, Richard Carbo stated that the ultimate goal of the company was to raise about $30million by the end of last year. There is a law that was passed in 2010 that made it possible for PACs to take part in the politics of the country. The problem with the law is the fact that a lot of dirty money has become part of the daily politics. The aim of the group is to turnaround this law by amending the constitution, and they have already collected 300,000 of the signatures that they need to get a gearing from the Supreme Court. They teamed up with the organization known as Ready for Hillary and hoped that the 4 million followers of the group would support their initiative. More than 11 candidates of the Democratic Party had been endorsed by this group. The difference between the group and the others is simply the fact that they look at the political and the social side of the initiatives they take part in. They aim to eliminate the effect of the Koch Brothers in American Politics. The group even started an expenditure arm to keep the finances separate from all other group activities. Their move to try and amend the constitution is ambitious, but they have the drive and the strategies it takes to make this a success and even though their candidate of choice did not make it to the White House, it is commendable that they are keeping the fire burning.
