They get so pissed and give you the "Thats a stupid thing to say" or the "It does matter" speech when in reality it acutally doesn't.
Heard of these guys? You're vote is irrelevant.
... the Constitution prohibits us from voting for President and gives that power only to the Electoral College, if people see the name of a Presidential candidate on the ballot, they believe that they’re voting for President. In fact, they’re voting for the slate of Electors of that candidate’s political party, who are not bound to abide by the popular vote, which doesn’t even have to be counted anyway.
Try putting a name on any other contract and then substituting somebody other than that name. That would be fraud, but with Presidential elections there’s no way to compel the Supreme Court to recognize it as such and they have the final say. If you voted for President, you’d be doing something the Constitution specifically prohibits you from doing, so you can’t, but by fraudulently putting those names on the ballot, the government allows many people to innocently believe that they’re voting for President. They’re not. Ask people who they voted, or are voting for, and nobody will tell you that they cast their vote for the slate of Electors of a Presidential candidate’s political party, they’ll say that they cast their ballot for that candidate, because that’s the name that was on their ballot.
If nobody voted for POTUS, TPTB would put their chosen puppet in anyway. Don't believe the hype.

I have researched what would happen if nobody voted for a POTUS. Apparently, the House of Representatives would choose somebody.....and we all know how bad their judgment is.
If I go to the polls, I will vote 3rd party, realizing of course that my vote is a vote of protest and mostly symbolic.
