No vote is a wasted vote, unless the elections are rigged any way.
If people stopped being sheep and voted for who they liked instead of voting for "who has a chance" then this country would be a much better place
and the status quo would be no more.
Folks, the presidential elections isn't a horse race. You're not supposed to vote for someone just because they are likely to win. If you vote for
someone that is likely to win but doesn't support your views on the issues, you have nothing to win and all to lose, it's not like you are betting
money on it. Well unless you are but that's doubtful.
I don't understand voting for someone just because they are the likely winner. Why have elections at all then? Why not just declare the "likely
winner" the winner of the election in advanced and not hold elections?
And if you vote for someone that you don't like, and they get elected, does it some how make you feel better that you helped a guy get elected that
you don't even agree with?
I am puzzled with this mentality plaguing America.
