I asked the question hoping to get a response(s) like yours. Your stance is backed up by reasoning that's not difficult to identify with. So, my question is, does it make sense to you, feeling strongly that your vote will not make a difference, to at the very least put a vote in for a third party as at least a middle finger to the system your sure works against you.
I've got to believe that on some level the votes count. I've not see enough evidence to the contrary. Some part of the system must still work.
Nevertheless, it's the standing up that counts. Every single frigging day, that standing up defines your life in all the best possible ways, no matter what you believe, that you stand by your convictions, by the belief in basic human rightsm, the pursuit of happiness, the freedom to live as you wish as long as you aren't hurting anyone else.
