On May 20th, 2008 Independent Political Report went online with its first post, which just outlined it’s goals while decrying its predecessor Third Party Watch. In the 11 Years since then many third party activist and politicians contribute to the site, got many spinoff and sister blogs including an unaffiliated website Alt-Right site that bears a name that’s the equivalent of a sequel anime, and even had a brief stint on BlogTalkRadio. As of the writing of this post the site has 18,620 Posts and 330,689 Comments. While there are many sites similar in to this one in its goals, this one is the oldest of its variety that is still active (Unless BallotAcessNews counts).
Although I have only been a contributor for 6 months, and already I feel like I’m a part of a community of individuals who come from all across the political spectrum with one common goal: Giving Third Parties the focus and attention that the mainstream media forgot to do.
Thanks to all former and current contributors, commenters, and lurkers.
Here’s to the next 11 years….
