James Bopp is the brain behind the End Citizens United. He has worked all through to ensure that the organization becomes successful. When appearing before a judge, Bopp was made a laughing stalk by all who were present in the courtroom. The lawyer- End Citizens United, was making his formal submissions on why his client should be allowed to play a campaign movie featuring the then-Democrat presidential candidate, Mrs. Hillary Clinton. The bone of contention is in the conduct of the presidential primaries.
In the video, the End Citizen United showed Mrs. Clinton as a political schemer and a ruthless European strategist. Once the details of the film went to the public domain, the federal elections authority placed a caveat on the movie. The movie was not to be played during the entire campaigning period. The main reason for the ban is that the by being 90 minutes piece, the film was way too long for an administrative campaign tool. Bopp in his submissions had argued that as a movie, it had no difference from the popular one-hour movie. His main point of the argument is that as their content creator, they should be allowed to enjoy the first amendment protection by a reputable court of law. At this point, the federal judge in charge protested and argued that the film cannot be compared to a one-hour film.

Two years down the line, the Supreme Court overturned the decision of the lower court. The apex court also bought almost all the arguments that James Bopp was making on behalf of his organization. The decision set a very interesting precedent with a serious implication on how United States campaigns are funded.
The End Citizens United is an organization that is dedicated to reviewing the country’s financial regulations. The agenda of these changes are guided by the rule of law and obedience to the constitution and other laws of the land. Some of the rules that Bopp and his organizations intend to overturn have been made in very obscure cases. Without a substantive case, the decision to appeal or to challenge them in court gives very minimal chances of winning. Despite the achievements that James Bopp has made so far, he claims that it is not yet over. He argues that he will not relent until all the unfavorable campaign financing laws are repealed.
The End Citizens United raises its funds like in a political committee. The primary role of the group is to oversight the bankrolling of campaign funds. While acting on its terms, the firm has been able to raise $4 million in the last three months. By 2018, the group anticipates having made collections to a tune of $35 million. The massive financial support from the citizenry shows that most people are fully behind its ideas.
