From the very conservative to the very liberal, the SuperLiberty group here in the Quad-Cities offers local residents essentially a buffet of local liberty groups in which to participate. The meetup.com online service offers the loose coalition of differentiating groups a local centralized location for each of the organizers an option to post their own groups activities and events on the SuperLiberty calendar. The SuperLiberty.com website displays 92 liberty leader members, 18 group reviews, 18 upcoming scheduled events, and 336 past events since December 2008.
Twice a month (the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month, 10am at the Downtown Davenport Library Film Room) the organizers from each of the groups have an opportunity to come and represent their group at a sort of round table, in order to discuss their only common denominator, personal liberty from over reaching governments. The various groups represented in this local liberty alliance are; Iowa Society For Educated Citizens, Quad Cities Civil Liberties Watch Group (Formerly the local ACLU chapter), Tea Party of the QC, Campaign For Liberty, Fully Informed Jury Association (FIJA), NORML, Articles of Freedom CC2009, Oath-keepers, Republic of the United States of America, and Iowans For Accountability (IFA).
It is here at these public meetings that folks can learn about each group and how they can become a part of the local action. Among the18 group reviews listed online, Veronica Deevers posted, “Being new, I just listened and absorbed so I could acclimate myself more quickly to the people and their knowledge base. This is a very well versed and educated group of people who are dedicated to restoring the republic. If you have ANY concerns about this county, ANY concerns about what kind of world you will be leaving your children or grandchildren, you MUST attend. Even if you do not feel like you are 100% up on everything...even if you do not know the Constitution or the Bill of Rights that well....COME. Learn! Be a patriot! Take up that sword of truth and put on the shield of valor. There is no better kind of high.”
If you are an organizer of a local political group or just a concerned citizen in the Quad Cities and want to do more or learn more about the liberty movement locally, then this a good place to start.
Iowans For Accountability (IFA) is fighting to hold politicians accountable to we the people, and make sure government works for all of us, not just wealthy special interests and the well-connected. IFA is a Non-Party Political Organization (NPPO) that actively supports or opposes ballot issues or candidates, regardless of party affiliation and when necessary, IFA runs its own candidates. Michael D. Elliott is the IFA Chairman. Website: www.ScottcountyIFA.com
