    The article is based on a false premise. It assumes there is a third party which is not made of worse propellerheads than the two major parties.

    Unfortunately, the third parties are worse than the two major parties. So voting for them is not a "wasted vote". It is a vote that encourages the third parties to keep being the crazy fucks they are, and I will not do that.

    "Someone voted for us! We must be doing something right!"

    It is better to not vote at all. If one votes for a major party with the attitude of voting for the "lesser of two evils", well, you are still voting for an EVIL. They need to think about what they are saying. What part of lesser of two EVILS do these people not understand? The evil part, obviously. And so we will continue to get more and more evil choices. We will keep getting the government we deserve.

    "A shitload of people voted for us! We must be doing something right!"


    So I won't be doing voting for that shit, either.

    My vote has to be earned.

    A helluva lot of people need to realize that their vote is actually worth dying for, and they should treat it that way. Not throw it away on some asshole who is slightly less evil than some other asshole.

    MAKE THEM WORK FOR IT!!!!

    Read the article.
    Liked the article.
    I was already convinced, so my opinion probably doesn't mean much.

    Worse? Now, there is hyperbole!
    Hardly possible!

    Really? Do you believe ALL of the third parties are better than the two major parties?

    If not, then you are the one guilty of hyperbole.

    It is more than possible to be worse than the two major parties.

    That's why they don't get a lot of votes.
