Maybe this has been touched on before, maybe it's already been decided not to go this route, but I thought I would bring it up for discussion as it's a new year, and possibly new tactics are called for?
I think there are 545 elected US Officials in the US Government?
Is there any reason why Occupy should not become its own "party" - party being defined in what ever way that would suit the majority - and have one really great human being run for each of those seats in any of future elections? During the election process, Occupy/People's issues would have to be put into the mainstream media and become issues for discussion and debate.
Is there anything to stop someone from running as an Occupier for the Mayor of their town or city?
Wouldn't this be the best, non-violent way to move forward in changing our government, to work within the system?
