On the Radar in the Third Party and Independent Blogosphere

Some new discoveries in the third party and independent blogosphere:

The Indy Express was launched earlier this summer and provides an independent "view from the middle of the road."

We Stand Divided is a group blog devoted to the proposition that "Divided Government is Better Government." The Dividist is a "fiscal conservative, social liberal, and libertarian leaning independent."

Serf City is a publication of the Manhattan Libertarian Party. From a post on the recent dueling protests for and against the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque":
I just got back to my office after a little impromptu flyering at the various demonstrations near Ground Zero. There were lots of cops on horseback which usually means someone will need to clear up a certain amount of biological waste product. But there was as least as much verbal horse shit being shoveled as there was the biological kind. One problem with a political system dominated by two parties is that regardless of which way you vote you are forced to vote for a certain amount of shit.
• The Cranky Critter blog states outright: "If you're not cranky, you're not paying attention." The Critter's operating assumption: "we're not being well-served by partisans on either side of the debate. And we're also not being well-served by ourselves, to whatever extent we shy away from unpleasant and inconvenient truths."

Tully's Page is a left-libertarian blog written from a rather singular perspective. Tully writes: "If you can imagine a blog written by a pragmatic libertarian; a Christian who is neither a theocrat nor a fundamentalist; and a father of 6 who is Gay - you've found it."

As always, if you've recently come across a new or notable third party or independent-oriented blog, or if you maintain one yourself, drop a link in the comments.
