Constituent Response today announced the free availability of "open source" anti-Bailout ads for web-masters, bloggers, forum-hosts and opposition candidates. Constituent Response is a new, non-partisan un-connected committee formed to oppose incumbents who supported the Bailout. The goal of Constituent Response is to "un-elect" those who voted to make Main Street pay for the mistakes of Wall Street. They advocate that no Senator or member of Congress who voted for the Bailout be re-elected.

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.

The free campaign ads were the second project of the Constituent Response Team, which was designed to give those in the Internet community a way to speak out on the issue of the Bailout, without having to commit substantial time and effort to art design and coding. Constituent Response hopes that opposition candidates will also make use of the ads or direct their activists to view them at http://www.constituentresponse.com/ads.

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.
