I am of the opinion we should have the poll "Do you agree with the suggestion by Anonymous that the movement should become a registered political party?" removed from the forums.
Even if there were consensus on the poll (which there is not), turning Occupy into a political party will *affect every Occupy movement in the USA* and possibly abroad. Folks can already form a political party if they want to, separate from Occupy. I would urge folks to think on this: Occupy isn't a political party and if LA registered it as such and decided to make it a political party it could very well ruin things for tens of thousands of others elsewhere who have *not* decided that this is a political party. Why force that onto the whole movement?
The world is watching, and even though each Occupy site is mostly autonomous, the actions of one as seen by the world can affect them all.
To me, the idea of LA turning Occupy into a party on it's own is absurd for many reason and most of all hurtful towards all other Occupy movements world-wide.
