President Obama, Independents, Iraq and Development


Frankly, I just have a simple “thank you” to our President Obama upon the policy decision to withdraw, or at least draw down, from Iraq. Some may see this as an election promise, some may see it as a moral issue.

I see it as a developmental issue — for the independent movement.

When independents put Barack Obama in the White House in November of 2008, we might have not known our own strength.

2 years later, the independent and unaffiliated, the “decline to state“, the “blanks”, the “no labels”, etc. have risen in numbers.

We (humanity) need to develop. And the independent movement needs to develop — and can lead the way politically. Let’s get busy!
