A lot has been discussed about the direction of OWS and legislative action. I for one don't see what the harm would be in creating a specific party just to push legislation with broad goals--say a Jobs in America and Economic reform Party. That party could concentrate on specifically promoting legislation running candidates that
1) Sends the flow of money from the federal banking system back to the people
2) Treats companies that create American jobs different from companies that don't in the tax code
3) Pushes legislation to secure personal freedoms
and so on.
such a party would be intended to reform capitalism, it would not be anarchist, however it and other parties could work cooperatively on common goals with groups like OWS. This would engage more people in the public, bolster the number of people taking part in demonstrations. Such a strategy would not be a zero sum game.
OWS was formed by anarchists, I get that, and OWS has achieved a lot and has a very unique and successfull strategy. Rather than creating fractions within OWS such a stragetgy would allow people to choose what they want to do, or pursue multiple goals since their is a lot of common ground between groups with different political philosphies, thanks to the amount of corruption in the government.
