    that statement is from a small group that may be an offshoot of OWS.  Furthermore, it advocates a possible third party for 2014.  But it's a cute dodge to ignore responding to what I actually stated.  

    It's apparent from your comments in the thread that your sole interest is in getting money and votes for the Dem party without any concern for whether they promote Dem principles or not (any Dem in a district where we can't get a good one is your stated purpose).  That was tried- and failed.  You, of course, may continue to beat that drum, but try not to cloak it under the guise that you are concerned for the OWS movement.  Clearly, you see it as a threat to the Dem establishment, which, the gods willing, it will continue to be (just as it is a threat to the republican establishment).  Why not just admit that this is what ails you.  And accept that there are those of us who simply disagree with your position.  There really is no bridging of that gap.  Instead of trying to demonize those who disagree with you (anarchists!  communists!- great right wing memes there), why not just state your position clearly and agree to disagree?

    •  orestes1963 - so does OWS have a viable purpose (0+ / 0-)

      besides camping in parks and getting beat up now and then? I support OWS as a gateway to real change, by getting people's attention, leading to societal improvement. Your nastiness to edrie sounds quite juvenile, btw.

      What do YOU see as the OWS position?

        Funny how you can call out nastiness so easily. I wonder why that is.
