Voting for third party candidates is against your interest.

Third party candidates have almost no chance of winning in our current election process. I wish they could, I like many third party candidates. But until we have the ability to vote for more than one candidate, it's foolish to cast your vote for someone outside of one of the two major parties. This is because every vote for the third party candidate takes a vote away from the closest major party. This effectively lowers the bar for the other major party. If you are unhappy with the major parties it is incumbent on you to get involved in the party you feel closest to and make your voice heard. Your vote is the only thing that will ever change our government, use it wisely.
