If Trump & Clinton are so despised then why not vote third party?


The Founding Fathers were vehemently against a national party (faction) system, especially a two-party model. 2016 3rd party Prez candidates; Darrell Castle, Gary Johnson, Chris Keniston and Jill Stein. Sanders supporters cried (literally) when Sanders threw his support to Clinton. Later there were cries of "Jill! Not Hill!" in the DNC. Noticed how you are given a Either/Or Reasoning, False Dilemma, False Dichotomy, Black/White Fallacy, False Binary Logic?

    Thanks for the answer. I feel I have no free will since my vote won't count anyway. :(

    no. Looked up all the various different ways to run an election and none are perfect. Beside, who counts the votes is what matter. :(

    How do we all build a strong 3rd Party? I wish I knew how other than dropping the Electoral College

    that's true. Never really voting FOR always AGAINST the lesser of the two evils. Wish they would do away with current system and do an overhaul reform on it.
