Don't want to vote for Clinton or Trump? How about this woman who says Wi-Fi melts kids' brains?


Re: Would you really want to take the chance?

If people want to vote "strategically," they should at least try to apply some real strategy, and not merely short-term tactics.

In each US election, the choices have gotten worse and worse. The way to break that cycle is to create a surge in the popular vote for third-party candidates like Stein. Even if they don't win, it will build public confidence, and finally put one of them in position to take the next election.

People need to vote out of hope, out of conviction, for the candidate they really want. It's the only way. Otherwise, in four years' time, a new Trump will be offered as "the lesser of two evils," up against someone even worse. The cycle only ends when the voters decide to think ahead. Fearlessly.
