Constituent Response made a splash earlier in the week with their previously unveiled Bailout Vote Map. The Bailout Vote Map allows visitors to http://www.constituentresponse.com to easily--with the click of a mouse--discover how their Senators or Representative voted on the Bailout. It also provides information on how to contact your Senators or Representative.
The new Constituent Response ads, many of which are customized to target those incumbents who voted for the Bailout, carry the message, "Vote "no" on incumbents who voted "yes." The ads, which are being made available at no cost, were produced at no cost--by volunteers who are opposed to the Bailout.
The campaign ads are being offered under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 License. This removes any legal concern regarding the ownership or not-for-profit use of the ads. Further, the ads can be linked to and embedded into existing websites with provided code snippets, so that the web host is not required to host the art itself.
Stephen Bone, Executive Captain of the Constituent Response Team, points out that up to nine percent of voters are currently telling pollsters they remain undecided. He suggests that it is not too late to make an impact on these voters by introducing them to the Voter Bailout Map or an ad that informs them that their Senators or Representatives voted against them on the Bailout.
CRT's third project, still in the planning stages, is to orchestrate recall movements against the senators in states that allow for recall. Parties interested in seeing that happen should be sure to join the Constituent Response Team so they can be notified of efforts in their area.
