In the last two weeks I've seen an uptick in interest from the moderate middle, the people I refer to as Consiberals. First, Linda Killian appeared on a number of programs promoting her new book, The Swing Vote, and then I started seeing inquiries about my book from several national moderate organizations. So, this week's list of #FFBlogs is dedicated to the unlabeled, independent, swing-voting, consiberal, RINO/DINOs out there... All the sites are more than just blogs; though I've linked to the blog pages, I recommend you look them over top to bottom.
CoffeeParty USA is a very large organization dedicated to "a nation of diverse communities sharing a culture of informed public engagement where our sacred right to vote is the only currency of our democracy." Their latest windmill is Grover Norquist, and I fully support their Stop the Pledge! movement.
Next up is Ruck.US, a place where you can join an active community that believes "There is one thing that has always made democracies great. It’s not the institutions, the systems, or even the leaders. It’s the people." Concerned that institutions are winning the stealth war for our democracy, the founders of Ruck.US have created a place for the like-minded to gather.
Third up this week is NoLabels, a very active centrist site that describes itself as "a group of Republicans, Democrats and Independents dedicated to a simple proposition: We want our government to work again." They provide a "daily dose of no labels news" along with their blog.
