I've always thought there were a number of issues that the OWS movement and the Tea Party could unify around. But the OWS movement has little leadership and seem reluctant to choose any sort of objectives and the Tea Party has been co-opted by the Koch Brothers and are no longer a "grass roots" organization.
But you're right, they could get a lot more done on the national scene if they abandoned party politics and banded together to accomplish common objectives like campaign finance reform and abolishing the Electoral College and our two party system.
I always think of the Native American's that could have easily defeated the European colony's if they had just banded together and didn't fight against one another. That's the way I feel about the OWS movement and the TP.
