On the Radar in the Third Party and Independent Blogosphere

Some recent finds in the third party and independent blogosphere:
JermSix is maintained by Jeremy Corbally-Hammond, and aims to cover "partisan jingoism and other political stuff."  Based in Maine, Corbally-Hammond is a representative of the state's Green Independent Party, and an advocate of election reform.  The blog prominently features one of my favorite quotes from Thomas Jefferson: "If I could not go to heaven but with a political party, I would decline to go."

Wading Across is an independent conservative blog "where a Cajun in Missouri talks about religion, politics and stuff that interests him."  The commentary leans toward the Constitution Party and the GOP, and often delivers strategic and tactical political advice aimed at third party and independent readers.  In a recent post looking ahead to 2012, we read, "If the Constitution Party, Libertarians, Green Party, etc., are really seeking to win public offices, then they need to start acting like it."  See also a post-election analysis and critique of those arguments blaming third party and independent candidates for "spoiling" the election.
 • The Future American is a centrist/moderate-oriented political blog maintained by Jess Chapman.  Chapman posts daily commentaries with a focus on fiscal policy and civil liberties.  On the site's "About" page, we read, "Jess is a political centrist, a cultural liberal, an economic and social moderate, a legal conservative, an individualist feminist, a religious agnostic and a self-described policy wonk. Her main areas of interest are fiscal policy and civil liberties."
Anti-Force is an independent, libertarian-leaning blog by Casey Given, a student at UC Berkeley and the campus coordinator for Students for Liberty.  Just before the election, Given published an article debunking the "myth of the two-party system," and revealing the faulty logic that maintains the system of lesser evilism.

• Finally, Ahmnodt Heare for President is a singular anti-duopoly independent blog, to say the least.  And I'm not exactly sure what to make of it.  On the "About" page, we read:
Ahmnodt Heare is a fictional character running a real campaign.  He is an Independent candidate for President of the United States.  His views on solving America’s problems is different than the ideas being offered by any Republican or Democratic candidate. . . . The purpose of this blog is to showing the absurdity of Ahmnodt Heare’s platform and show that the two major parties are equally absurd (especially at the federal level.) If you are fed up with the two-party duopoly, then feel free to write in “Ahmnodt Heare” for the office of your choosing.
In a recently published "Open Letter to America's Independents," Ahmnodt Heare makes a strong case in support of voting a straight ticket "independent party line."    
As usual, if you've recently discovered or come across a new third party or indy blog, or maintain one yourself, drop a link in the comments.
