Conversations on Independent Voters: Independents in Arkansas

Courtney Terry, a mom and grad student in Little Rock, Arkansas, came to independent politics because she didn't feel comfortable in a partisan world--and a world that so readily accepts poverty as a norm.

She is organizing a caucus of independents to talk about next steps and has been conducting a voter registration drive in her community.

Courtney told The Hankster that she comes from a family (from Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas) that just "doesn't feel like the partisan process includes them." "I've spoken with friends who think the third choice is always crazy," Courtney said.

Crazy? In a world gone mad, it would be crazy NOT to be crazy! --NH
