— End Citizens United (@StopBigMoney) August 30, 2018
Beto O’Rourke challenges Senator Ted Cruz for the Senate seat in the November election in Texas. O’Rourke supports the policy of ending the campaign finance rules that came from the Supreme Court decision in the Citizen’s United Case. O’Rourke does not accept Political Action Committee funds and his success to this point has been both surprising and a tribute to grassroots fundraising.
The contrast between the candidates in the Texas Senate race mirrors the broader question of the voice of the people in US politics. O’Rourke is the challenger, a relative newcomer with progressive ideas. He does not accept PAC funds and appeals to small donors for his support.
Senator Cruz is a model of the big money establishment candidate and politician. He reaches out to PACs and other dark money sources and has amassed a large amount of funds from the so-called mega-donors and PACs. Cruz promotes the influence of money in elections that campaign reform advocates oppose. Senator Cruz has low personal popularity polling numbers in Texas and across the country; he supports policies that benefit big business along with conservative ideals.

– A Trail of Polling
The early polls in the Texas race showed large percentage leads for Senator Cruz. The trend in the polls have shown a steady increase in support for O’Rourke to the current time when the race is close, and in some polls, statistically even. End Citizens United’s polling agrees that the lead has shrunk, and the momentum favors Mr. O’Rourke and his grassroots organizing and fundraising.
– The November Elections
The outcome is uncertain, and the uncertainty represents a victory for grassroots fundraising and organizing. Unlike early predictions, political experts agree that the race will be close and that Mr. Cruz is in a tough re-election battle. The experts also agree that this is a battle of the impact of political funding. Organizations like End Citizens United play an important role when endorsing candidates and funding grassroots campaigns. The test of popular participation versus corporate-type funding is on display in the Cruz – O’Rourke Senate contest. Many observers agree that there is already a victory for the policy of ending soft money in politics.
Betsy DeVos has been at the forefront of positive change sine her time at Calvin College, when she was known as Elisabeth Prince. In addition, her husband, Dick DeVos, is also actively involved in political and educational reform. He was a candidate for the Governor of Michigan in 2006. In 1989, the DeVos’ established the Widnquest Group. This consists of multiple companies that focus on innovations in manufacturing, technology,and clean energy. Mrs. DeVos is the chairman of the Windquest Group, and she is also the chairman of the Alliance for School Choice and the American Federation for Children (AFC). In addition, she also dedicates her time to numerous national and local boards that includes Kids Hope USA, Mars Hill Bible Church, the Foundation for Excellence in Education, and the DeVos Institute for Arts Management at the Kennedy Center.
Mrs. DeVos participated in an interview that discussed her feelings on educational reform and educational choice. Mrs. DeVos is a believer in using vouchers and tax credits to provide students with the opportunity to attend their school of choice, which could include magnet, private, or charter schools. Mrs. DeVos explained that students shouldn’t be confined to attending a school based on which zip code they live in, and she also believes in using technology to enhance digital learning. According to Mrs. DeVos, homeschooling is an ideal way that parents can take control of their children’s education, and digital learning enables homeschooling and virtual schools with the ability to have the same educational opportunities as those in a traditional classroom setting. When asked about the progression of educational choice, Mrs, DeVos explained that she is optimistic because presently there are an estimated 250,000 students in 33 private schools that are publicly funded in 17 states as well as the District of Columbia. Her devotion to educational reform is the primary reason she was appointed to the position of United States Secretary of Eduction by President Trump.
Mr. and Mrs. DeVos were heirs to family fortunes, and they have contributed to numerous charities. In 2015, the couple donated $11.6 million, and Forbes predicted that the family has donated a lifetime amount of $1.33 billion, which is nearly a quarter of their estimated worth of $5.2 billion. They want their donations to give every student the right to pursue the American dream through freedom of educational choice, and the power couple will continue to work toward educational reform.

Worldwide food distribution is an operation that requires consideration and strategic vision. To be considered as one of the best food suppliers for many decades is nothing short of amazing in itself. OSI Industries has set a standard for what it means to be successful over a lengthy period of time. What has made OSI Industries so successful? With humble beginnings at the turn of the 20th century, Otto Kolschowsky was a member of the German immigrant experience in Chicago. Two years after arriving in the United States, Otto Kolschowsky opened a meat market to serve the German community he was apart of. This was the beginning. His business did great and he later expanded into wholesale. Due to his success as a businessman, he later renamed his company Otto & Sons in 1928.
Although the United States has had 2 two major wars, Otto & Sons continued to thrive as an industry leader. The humble beginnings of OSI Industries. The sons of Otto, Arthur and Harry, made a strategic agreement with Ray Kroc. This was before Ray Kroc opened the first McDonald’s. This agreement was to be the first supplier of fresh ground beef. Years later when Ray eventually bought out the McDonald’s brand and became the CEO, the relationship with Otto & Sons would only flourish as well. Having the association with one of the world’s famous fast food restaurants proved to be key to the long-term success of OSI Industries.
This would prove to be a stroke of genius as the years to come were filled with continued expansion and growth. Global expansion was next on the list as OTTO & Sons became the industry standard for food production. One of the main components of OSI Industries is to have state-of-the-art facilities that are current with technological advancements. In 1973, the first major plant was dedicated to McDonald’s. After that, the global presence of OSI would soon follow. Having transitioned over time is what allowed OSI to remain a benchmark in the food supply business because not only is food produced, but ways to better produce the food are enacted as well. Truly a symbol of success today.
