AccountabilityNow is an initiative launched by Strangebedfellows, a unique coalition made up of people from both the left and right that is dedicated to stopping the creeping eradication of civil liberties in America. Modeled on a similar effort in Britain, the initial Strangebedfellows group encompasses everyone from Ron Paul supporters (BreakTheMatrix.com, Rick Williams and Trevor Lyman) to leading bloggers on the left (Glenn Greenwald of Salon.com, Jane Hamsher of firedoglake.com) to a broad representation of concerned individuals who share the view that warrantless surveillance, telecom immunity and other outrages must end, and end now.
The long term goal for AccountabilityNow is to become a permanent fixture on the political landscape of Washington, DC that serves as a constant reminder to politicians that civil liberties matter. The message is simple: Uphold constitutional rights and we will support you; abridge freedom in America and you have gained an opponent. Democrat or Republican - it makes no difference to us; one standard will be used for all.
If you care about holding your government accountable for the actions it takes - especially those that undermine the Constitution - please take a moment to visit AccountabilityNow and participate in this powerful fundraising effort!
