Welcome

Welcome to Third Party and Independent Daily!  Third Party and Independent Daily aggregates news and blog items relating to third party and independent politics from across the political spectrum.  Our aim is to facilitate the growth and development of the nation's third party and independent movements by serving as a clearinghouse for the dissemination of information relevant to that aim and providing a discussion forum for independents and supporters of third parties.  Our goal is to aid in the election of third party and independent candidates for office and to promote reasoned critique of the two-party state and the duopoly system of government.

Though the site is a work in progress, a number of news pages have already been set up and are accessible from the left sidebar.  If you are interested in contributing, please send an email to thirdpartydaily at gmail.

Is there an ideology that is favored by this blog? Is this to be just a non-Republican and non-Democratic party information resource? If so how is this upholding the fair and equal presentation of all viewpoints which is a request most third parties make of voters?

That's a fair question RHKINC. There is no lack of websites and blogs dedicated to ensuring the continued hegemony of the Democratic and Republican Parties. As stated above, my hope is that TPID will in some way facilitate the growth of the country's third party and independent movements. As for its ideology, ideally, I would like it to be multi-partisan in character. Equal presentation of viewpoints will be, to some extent, dependent upon participation. You are welcome to join if you think a certain position is getting short shrift.
