End Citizens United Is Growing

Corporations being able to donate money just like citizens are able to do is something that should never happen in the United States. It is a bad idea for the country because it is supposed to be a democracy. When corporations are treated like citizens, there is a major problems whether the country is a democracy or not. This idea is something that is going to change things for the country in the future and already had a very negative effect on the last election. It is something that could hurt the United States and will not allow it the chance to be able to flourish in the way that a democracy should. Thanks to Citizens United, there are many problems with the election process now and they can nearly all be traced back to the corporations who are spending billions of dollars on the candidate who they want to be able to win the election. It is a problem and one that is going to continue to get worse if nothing is done about it.

 

End Citizens United is the organization that is going to fix things for the United States. While they can’t necessarily get everyone that they want out of the White House or do things that will have huge impacts on laws that are going into place right now, they can do things to change the election process. Most importantly, they are working to get rid of Citizens United which is something that is going to change the way that things are done so that they will be able to make the right choices with their voting process.

 

End Citizens United wants to make sure that they are doing what they can to get rid of Citizens United and they are doing it through the use of various programs that were designed to help citizens. They want to make sure that they are doing things the right way and that they are going to be able to do more with what they have. The citizens who are supportive of End Citizens United are all working together to get what they can to make a change in different things.

 

Despite the fact that the organization started out relatively small, it has grown to great lengths. They are an organization that has a lot of support from the people that they are working with. Citizens love the organization because they want to create reform that will change the way that things are done for citizens. They want to make sure that things get better and that voting is not directly influenced by big corporations that have billions of dollars to spend on the candidate that they want to win.

She applied the product and worked it in through her hair and then rinsed it out gently. She dried her hair and was amazed at the transformation that took place. Her hair had bounce, shine, and was manageable. She couldn’t wait to show her friends at work the next day. When she woke up, however, she noticed that her hair was limp and oily. She had the same experience for a few days. She decided to wake up early and wash her hair in the morning instead of the evening. She was happy to report that her hair looked great all day and her friends even commented on how great her hair looked. She decided that she would recommend the product to anyone that wanted to give their hair a boost and help to protect is while also cleaning it thoroughly.

Dick DeVos Has $139 Million To Speak Of In Non-Profit Giving

When Dick and Betsy DeVos started their family foundation over 24 years ago they saw it as a way to help organizations in education, arts, scientific research and political activism impact the state of Michigan. Dick’s family has been supporting conservative institutions since the days his father made Amway Corporation successful, and the DeVos family has built several foundations that have started higher learning centers at local universities and also supported Republican political candidates. But Dick and Betsy’s total giving has only a small fraction that’s gone to political candidates even though Betsy herself was once chairperson of the Michigan Republican Party. The exact amount the DeVos’s have given to local charities is estimated to be about $139 million.

 

Dick DeVos runs The Windquest Group and also is the former CEO of Amway Corporation. While working under his father and later leading Amway, Dick was responsible for growing its customer base into markets in Western Europe, Australia and Eastern Asia. Only a small part of Amway’s profits came from outside the US before Dick took over, but once he started running the company it grew to over 50%. After leaving Amway Dick and Betsy decided to start investing in more Michigan-based companies that specialized in food service, energy and power generators, household storage and specialized technology. Phil Dolci was recently chosen to become CEO of one of their companies. Dick was also the president of the Orlando Magic in the few years following his family’s purchase of the team.

 

Dick and Betsy consider education to be at the forefront of their values, hence why then President-elect Donald Trump chose Betsy to head the US Department of Education by the time he took office. One of Dick and Betsy’s first efforts to change it was when Dick won election to the state Board of Education in 1990, but despite being able to influence policies towards private schools, the DeVos’s thought more should be done. About 10 years later they attempted to bring a bill into law that would allow private schools to receive tax credits and vouchers, but it missed the needed votes. But in spite of that setback the DeVos’s also started working with charter schools, and in 2010 they formed one at the local airport that’s known as the West Michigan Aviation Academy.

 

The DeVos’s have also given to local hospitals and in 2006 Dick was given the Spectrum Health Foundation’s Art of Giving award. David Rubenstein’s project at the Kennedy Center also was the beneficiary of the DeVos’s charity and was then renamed the Dick and Betsy DeVos Institute for Arts Management. Dick DeVos is also an active member and supporter of Heritage Foundation, and he also wrote a book about his philosophies titled Rediscovering American Values.
