In the past, candidates for the elections are hiring individual people who would go around the neighborhood to campaign for them. This type of campaign uses so much paper, time, and workforce. However, with the advancement in technologies, some companies are already offering ways on how to make campaigning fast, easier, and more convenient. NGP Van introduced the Minivan, a software program that would allow the candidates and their campaigners to analyze a neighborhood before they go around knocking and sharing information about the candidates. By using Minivan, the minimize the efforts needed to campaign for the candidate, and at the same time, doing the environment a favor by not using so much paper.
The Minivan is an impressive mobile application program that can send a notification to all the people within a neighborhood about the candidate. This message can be edited, giving information about the candidate and sending it to everyone near the area. This action would also prompt those who received the notification to respond back, especially if they are interested in the candidate. The Minivan would also display the number of households which are supporting a specific party. The Minivan would revolutionize the United States midterm elections in 2018 and all other elections in the future because of its huge potential.
Some campaigners are already using the program to campaign for the candidates that they support. Since the information of the candidate is already sent to the public, there is no need to print excessive posters and handouts because all of that information can be found in the program. Another advantage of using Minivan is that the cost of the campaign would significantly go down. As more people are using the available technology and resources that anyone can use, experts believe that future campaigns would only involve fewer amounts. The campaign season is a serious business in the United States, and the candidates can save a lot if they will download and use the Minivan, which is one of the hottest applications available for download today. Fans of the application are saying that it would help the people vote for the right person once the day of the election comes.
In the U.S. Presidential Election Campaign in 2016, there were rumors that Russians are meddling with the United States Election. And, by the way, Facebook and other social media networks were flooded with advertisements that trolled some of the candidates while cornering the ones Russian backed; it somehow gives clear hint that there was foreign meddling in the United States election campaigns. Robert Muller is the Special Counsel given the responsibility to find out if the rumors are true and if Donald Trump also was the part of this Russian backed online campaign against his opposition.
As per the current state of affairs, End Citizens United, and many other independent patriotic organizations and political action committees believe that the chances of Washington DC taking firm actions against the foreign invaders into the United States elections in the future. The election and campaign finance laws has been tweaked to suit the interests of the right-wing politicians, who have made it possible for infinite money to flow into the election campaigns without leaving any trace. With huge volumes of money flowing into the election, it is quite easily possible to sway the outcome of the election in the desired direction by the people and organizations that are putting in that money. Basically, a rigged election system has been organized due to the finance laws that currently govern the elections in the United States, which is what the End Citizens United, a people movement and political action committee that stands for the neutrality of the election and its transparency.
It has been proved beyond doubt in the current investigations that the foreign hands did play a role in the US Election Campaign in 2016 as the Facebook ads were brought by the foreign entities or even governments. It goes on to show vulnerable the U.S. election system is. Moreover, the cause of concern is how unprepared the U.S. government is to fight such an intrusion by the foreign government or entity and that any source of money can potentially disrupt the natural outcome of the elections. As per the reports, a Russian Troll Farm spent $100,000 in Facebook Ads and Social Media campaigns against the opposition of Donald Trump, and the worst fear of End Citizens United and other patriotic organizations of the United States is that this funding just might be the beginning of what is to come in the future. The laws related to election financing and loopholes in the existing election system needs to be checked and corrected.
End Citizens United is a Political Action Committee that started in the year 2010 with the mission to fight against the decision made by the Federal Election Commission’s decision to allow unlimited money to flow into the election without accountability. It can put the future of the country in the hands of people who might not want good for the US population, and it’s a decision that must be reversed at the earliest.
