The amazing thing about political parties is they must get votes. They must get the confidence of the population. Many occupiers talk about direct democracy, and that's fine, but the way to get that is with more political action, not less. By making a political party, then winning the confidence of the population, we show that Occupy is well supported. Once that is shown, then we can start changing laws to make the system closer to direct democracy. We can have more referendums for example.
We shouldn't be afraid to play in the political arena with the big boys. If we speak truth, then America will follow us!
