A national vote plan needs to be established. The Green Party US is, in my opinion, the closest ideologically. Supporting the two party duopoly would be a massive mistake, as we have learned already with the Democrats since 2000 and their failure to prevent anything terrible, then their blatant continuation of terrible policies.

http://www.jillstein.org/green_new_deal Read Jill Stein's plan: local building and management using federal funds from proper taxation.

I find Gary Johnson appealing, but too libertarian (he wants to abolish dept of ed, and privatize prisons...)

It's time for OWS to focus on the election! You have people gathered from all over the country (and listening and ready to act from all over the country too!) Pick a direction and go strong! End the two-party duopoly! Don't worry that you might be hurting the Democrats - they failed us! If you worry about Obama and Romney (which you shouldn't) you can focus on all the House and Senate seats available.

The first step is electoral reform! You have to vote to get that!

Thank God Occupy apparently has leaders after all. A national strategy would be a great idea too.

OWS, while you are doing the work for equality, keep it fun. It is a long fight. I know it can be boring at times, so try to keep it fun. :)
