I hope you voted!

November 6th, 2012 at 10:16 pm

I hope everyone voted. I feel like this is a very important election. I know that some of you said you did not like either candidate, but I think it is important to choose one and vote. Voting independent this year would be a wasting of your vote.
So, go and vote!

    My husband and I voted a little over a week ago. I agree with you everyone should vote. It is your right and priviledge that so many in other countries do not have.

    Actually, voting independent this year could be more important than ever. If the Libertarian candidate, who is on the ballot in all 50 states this year, gets 5% of the votes it will break the two party system, assuring a three party system in 2016 and allowing them into presidential debates in the future. Since the two party system is well and truly broken, this could be a very good thing. Of course the Libertarian candidate will not win this year, but that doesn't necessarily equal a wasted vote. It depends on what your end game is, really. 2012 is same old/same old, lesser of two evils, no matter who wins. But 2016 might offer a real choice for independants if they act now. Just a different view.

    Actually, imagine if everyone who was disgusted with current politics actually did vote third party. It's only a throwaway since so few will vote that way. We need more people to have the guts to do so.

    Living in a non-swing-state/clear majority to one party, voting independent is not a throwaway. We tend to vote independent to voice disgust with current mainstream options and two-party system. I think voting either dem or republican would be more of a throwaway in our case (wouldn't make a difference). In comparison, nice to have our third party vote heard. Seems to be more and more voting third party every few years.

    Well said Lucky Robin. The only wasted vote is one not cast. People have died for us to have the right to vote for the candidate or party that most closely represents our beliefs. I cannot imagine voting anything but Libertarian.
