1. Americans Elect sounds a little like "No Labels"...
The main political dynamic in this country is various shades of the Far Right vs. the "Center," the latter characterized by eschewing "labels" (re: philosophies, beliefs, positions, policies). The dynamic WILL change in methodology as the Koch brothers consolidate Right Wing sites and other organizations into some kind of cyber-central institution, and Americans Elect try a centrist approach. Both efforts are pro-corporate and hostile to anything resembling the "left."

What remains to be seen is whether OWS can become a true point of philosophical opposition, and not be left behind in the "techno race."
