They of course have much better policies than R and D, but it depends I think. If voting GP in reality leads to Republicans coming in to power, then it might not be a good idea. The main focus should however be building these wonderful engaged active growing Occupy Movements :)

Linguist of USA UNITE!!!

Ah, wow. Listening to Chamsky on the international definition of libertarianism. That is Useful.. As they say that has Utility.

Clearly there is a place for international Political terms. Just as there is a place for international Scientific Terms. But the POWERS that Be, don't want you to Learn about terminology. Hey,Terminology is Dangerous.

It is like Western Cowboy Movie. We need Clint Eastwood to ride in to OWS.

I concur that it's important to have non-coercive systems in mind when we talk about reform. I disagree vehemently that we need to segregate ourselves from the Paulites. He's right about so much that it's worth supporting him and making strategic outreaches to his supporters as OWS moves forward.

No, not at all. He´s a cynic. Paul´s foreign policies are ok, but his economic policies - giving huge tax cuts to the superwealthy and giving all the power into the hands of private tyrannies- are just awful.

"non-coercive systems" can´t exist btw. When people are living together in a society there will always be some form of coercion. The question is which ones you´d prefer
