Maybe I shouldn’t have told you this. Damn.
I am well aware of that. It is not the same effect as voting for Obama. When neither of the major parties offers a candidate near enough to my values and stand on issues, I must consider a third party alternative. This also makes sense for those who would normally support the Democrat nominee. If the one they get is not close enough to their position on issues, they should look to the opposing party to see if it is a closer match. If not, the question is whether a third party might field a better match (think Nader).
