One of the differences between O’Rourke and Cruz is their views on big money in politics. Cruz is backed by big money, the NRA and has not given any priority to environmental issues. Beto O’Rourke is backed by conservationist groups like the League of Conservation Action Fund because of his concern for the environment. O’Rourke is also backed by End Citizens United because he believes in campaign finance reform, ending big money contributions to campaigns. Obviously there is a stark contrast between the two.
Beto O’Rourke wants to make politics for the people and by the people as it was originally designed to be in the United States, which is why he has joined forces with End Citizens United. Another difference is O’Rourke’s focus on the matters that concern Texans. He is fighting to see that any Texan that wants to work can find good paying challenging work and that if needed, he or she can access training to get those jobs. He’s also concerned about providing good quality affordable health insurance that can be accessed by the average man or woman. Probably the most important difference between the two candidates is O’Rourke wants to bring the country’s people together, no matter what party they belong to.

Big Money 20 is a list of politicians that accept near unlimited amounts of campaign contributions from wealthy corporations. The list is published and maintained by a political action committee called End Citizens United. The PAC intends to remove big money from politics and put the voting power back in the hands of the common citizen.
End Citizens United was created after a Supreme Court case ruled in favor of large political donations. According to End Citizens United, this hurt the democratic election system in a major way. The ruling expanded on the theory that corporations should be treated as people instead of companies. Post-ruling, corporations are permitted to donate large amounts of money to politicians in a non-translucent manner. The organization was founded in March of 2015.
End Citizens United goals are to elect pro-reform politicians, politicians that do not accept big money, and politicians that speak for the common citizen. End Citizens United is made up of hundreds of grassroots members, and they are all working to raise awareness of big money in politics.

George Soros is an American billionaire who was born in Hungary August 12, 1930. He lived in pro-Nazi Hungary and also under communist rule. He is of Jewish descent but does not practice his religion. His father was an attorney who changed his name to Soros. The family moved to London where he studied finance at the prominent London School of Economics. He made his fortune in America and is a New York fund manager on Politico.com. Also he is chairman of Soros Fund and Open Society Foundations.
This well-known billionaire is actually a power in politics and supports the Democratic Party. He believes in an open society and freedom of religion. He has reportedly known Hillary Clinton for over 25 years and greatly admires her. He wanted to insure Hillary’s election and after her nomination donated over 25 million dollars to her campaign on project-syndicate.org. His admiration for her and fear of a Trump victory were motivating factors. He was afraid that Trump’s warnings of terrorism would only stimulate more violence.
An interesting note, although not related to the campaign itself, is that George Soros supports such causes as Black Lives Matter. There are rumors that he was behind the protests of Trump’s victory such as “he is not my president”. His foundation denies this and any claim of association with violence.
The dramatic election of Donald Trump and phenomenal defeat of Hillary Clinton has the Democratic Party’s attention at http://www.nybooks.com/articles/2014/11/20/wake-up-europe/. George Soros truly believed that the election of Hillary Clinton’s electoral vote was a “done deal”. He is said to have a hard time accepting that Trump won the election. The Democratic Party is on its toes and is discussing changes. These discussions are being led by the Democratic Alliance of which George Soros has an active role. They contribute heavily to the Democratic Party. They have plans to sabotage the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s term on time.com and any efforts to negate the policies of Barack Obama. The Democratic Party plans to regain the support and trust of the American people and their power in congress.
The first 100 days of Trump’s term should be interesting to say the least. George Soros is not going away. His power and influence will continue to be felt here and in Europe. This powerful man should not be underestimated. We are entering a new era where someone who was basically not involved in politics was elected, So how the Democratic Party deals with this should be engaging getting the full attention of the American people.
