  1. hey guys ...

    saw this on the listing of newsgroups from my ISP and I though I would come
    in for a visit.

    seems there is a lot of discussion about technology, comps and HDTV going
    on.

    Anyhow ... I need some guidance.

    There is no newsgroup about Bernie Sanders or the Independent Party ...
    however there is for the Green Party and the Democrates and the GOPerps as
    well as Socialists, Nazis, Homosexuals and on it goes.

    Sooooo ...

    who do it contact in getting the Independent Party listed on the newsgroup
    thingy ... for example ..

    alt.politics.independents

    thanks to any one who can point me on my way.

    all my best,

    sumbuddie who cares

    :)

    "independent" party?
    sounds like an oxy moron- like "non-partisans" association.

    And what *country* are you talking about. Usenet is world wide. Try
    getting a full list of newsgroups from your news server and searching
    for say independent. *Everything* is on usenet, you just have to find
    it. Over 100,000 places to waste time and growing every day because no
    one can find the ones that are already there <g>.

    alt.politics.independents

    You need to practice more with OE. When searching for newsgroups,
    reset the list and then enter the string on which you want to search.
    I only had to enter "independents" to find the above group. If your
    newsgroups provider (sonic.net) doesn't include that group then you
    need to use a different newsgroups provider.

    You already knew about this newsgroup so why did you have to ask about
    it?

    In the US, there is actually a registered political entity known
    as the Independent Party. It's for conservatives who thing that
    the RepubliCons are too liberal. Think of it this way; if you're
    a right wing nutcase AND religious, you are an Independent. If
    you're a right wing nutcase and NOT religious, you go
    Libertarian.

    You need to contact Google, they are the owners of Usenet.

    Newcomers to newsgroups should start here

    <http://computer.howstuffworks.com/newsgroup.htm>

    and here

    <http://www.anta.net/misc/nnq/>, the Official Home Page of the
    newsgroup called news.newusers.questions.

    That web site includes some advice about creating a new newsgroup.

    No they aren't. They are one of many commercial operations offering web
    forums, though - an inferior technology to usenet (but newer and
    commercially exploitable).

    This is one presidential race I would not wager on.
    the way I see it , each candidate of the "big three" has a pretty good shot
    at it right now.

    Also, in all the years I've been voting...this is the first time that I did
    not *loathe*
    at least one of the candidates.

    Though I'm all for people running independently,
    For this election, there is no sense in even considering an Independent
    has any chance

    I did all that first, and it came up empty ... your cogent direction to my
    ISP is the place to go ... so I am on my way.

    this is good .. but the Libertarian Republican Ron Paul is anti abortion in
    step with the Spearchucking God Pat Robertson types ... and Bernie Sanders
    the Independent is pro choice even pro sex if I am not mistaken.

    What is it with all these morons who think Google owns usenet?
    This is the third time some idiot's made this claim in the last
    month.

    Nobody owns usenet, and nobody owns the internet. If you don't
    know what you're talking about, STFU.

    Well, if it is empty then it is because no one visits that newsgroup.
    So you want yet another newsgroup that no one visits?

    I'd be interested in knowing where you found this information. I'd like to
    give it a read.
    Would it be possible for you to post this information?
