The real waste

I just don’t understand it. My friends tell me I am wasting my vote by voting for Gary Johnson and the Libertarian Party. Meanwhile most of them admit they cannot stand either major candidate, so they will hold their nose and choose the candidate they mistrust and dislike least. To me, that’s the real waste!

There is one critical, positive outcome that our vote can make possible this November. We can create a viable third party that better represents the majority of Americans. Can Gary Johnson win in November? I don’t know, but at the least we can make sure that in the next election we are not stuck between two parties and candidates that we no longer believe in.
