I would say the reason why some people may vote for alternative candidates is out of protest.
Is an act in futility really a protest? I think a march or a petition would be more effective than a handful of intelligent people split apart by minute diffences in principle. Some will vote Green... some will vote for one of the Independents... some will vote Libertarian... but the vast majority of the uneducated masses will vote along the electorate party lines. Too much TV - not enough books.
Silent protest is also ineffective. Not voting only makes you seem uninvolved. Perhaps I should start a petition...
Not sure i'm up to the legalities behind it...
Perhaps not, then.
Guess i'll just vote for the guy that claims to want to change the electoral system... like THAT'LL
So what. Still gonna vote Obama - at least he acknowledges
that the system is broken and undemocratic.
