In my latest reply to a forum member http://occupywallst.org/forum/third-party-redux/#comment-763587 I have stated that
"In essence, what is needed is not another political party but a political organization that pushes for initiatives at the local level and at the state level in ballot initiative states while pushing for those same state level issues in the non-ballot initiative states and also for federal level issues in all states in the form of contractual terms for candidates to publicly sign to in a legal contract."
The political organization could simply be known as ACT or the ACT Organization with 'ACT' perhaps standing for 'Americans Cooperating Together'. Originally, I had conceived of voters composing contracts for candidates to sign but after doing a little more research into fraud and affidavits, it's become clear that it's actually an affidavit that's needed to hold a candidate accountable. Although it would be ideal for ACT to simply be a campaign of the PIRGs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_Interest_Research_Group , an independent organization based upon the PIRG template might be the necessary alternative upon rejection by the PIRGs.
Of all the issues that I think Americans might be able to get behind in a united effort, I think that the push for the peoples' right of initiative at all levels of government and the push for public state banks http://occupywallst.org/forum/free-democracy-amendment/ would hold the most promise in being understood and pursued for the establishment of a democracy in America and the eventual creation of a Union Reserve Bank to replace the Federal Reserve Bank. Attention simply needs to be drawn to the fact that a representative democracy that operates above the revocation of initiatives is a tyranny http://occupywallst.org/forum/none-are-more-hopelessly-enslaved-than-those-who-f/ while a national governmental banking institution owned by private interests is fascism http://occupywallst.org/forum/free-democracy-amendment/#comment-751508 .
A secondary component of ACT could be support for the creation of worker-owned cooperatives through crowdfunding. This would require a Cooperative Employment Service that would assess the skills of the unemployed individuals to patronize it and match them with a suggested cooperative business plan. Upon acceptance or rejection of the plan for an alternative plan, the Cooperative Employment Service would facilitate the crowdfunding of the new cooperative business. Of course, each municipality of cooperative communities should have their own branch of a nationwide Cooperative Credit Union to handle both cooperative and personal accounts. With the Cooperative Employment Service, cooperatives, and Cooperative Credit Union established, imagine what would happen nationwide if the unemployed of each city were to be consistantly channeled into either newly or already established worker-owner cooperatives.
Overall, the purpose of ACT would be activism through initiatives and candidate affidavits.
Your thoughts on all of this?
