Looking for an article on hybrid third-party politics.

Not sure if this was in the Blue or not, but maybe someone can help me find this article. Within the past year or two there was a news article about a 3rd party organization that was endorsing other establishment candidates from other parties in races where they weren't running a candidate.

Non-political Platform Issues

Last weekend I jokingly suggested to my family that am going to run for president as an independent with a platform of issues that are completely apolitical. I want to add other items to my imaginary platform, but I only want issues that are inherently neither conservative or liberal. For instance, I would pledge to abolish Daylight Savings Time and eliminate the penny. What others can you suggest? [more inside]

I need to order checks - cheaply but not scammily, please!

I bank with Chase, and they gave me two free boxes of checks when I opened my account in 2008 which have lasted me until now. I called them up and they want to charge me $28/box plus tax and delivery, which seems ridiculous. I don't know anything about how third-party checking orders work, though, and would like to make sure I order through a reputable place. [more inside]

No-frills, no-hassle third-party fundraising

Let's say I really care about some charity. I'd like to do an online fundraising drive---with premiums that I send to donors. I'm not affiliated with the charity, or I am but this drive is an independent, personal initiative. Either way, the charity isn't involved except for the happy day when they get a check. Is there some online service that makes all this easy for me? [more inside]

What's the best way to tweet from China?

A team from our office is heading over to a number of China cities and they want to be active on social media the whole time to promote it. But given that China blocks twitter and Facebook, I need some workarounds. Is there a client like Hootsuite or tweet deck or buffer that ISN'T blocked? And what are my other options? Does instagram work? What about Linkedin?

How anonymous is my vote?

I'll make this super-simple: how anonymous is your vote in the United States? I'm currently working for a progressive-oriented group that does lot of work with Democratic politicians/figures - but I'm considering voting third-party in this year's presidential election. [more inside]

Is coalition government possible in the US system?

In many advanced democracies around the world these days, coalition governments are in place (Japan, England and Australia just to name a few). Is it 'technically' possible in the US - given the rise of 'third party' candidates (or 'fourth' 'fifth' whatever ...) - for Congress to operate in that fashion? Positions like 'House Majority/Minority Leader' and suchlike seem to be predicated on the existence of two opposing blocks. Could either the House or Senate operate if there were (say) three large parties dividing up the seats, instead of two?

3rd party POP3

Say you've got a domain and a server, but the account didn't come with any POP3 setup. Assuming you're not going to abandon that hosting provider for one reason or another, what's the best 3rd party POP account provider? And is this a huge headache?
