If you vote for "the lesser of two evils", but you want to vote for someone else in a third party, then you are an idiot living in ancient Sparta...

Many times have I heard that people will vote for someone like Ralph Nader, but they don't because... Ugh... "He can't win". Do you realize just how stupid that sounds??? It especially sounds stupid in a country where you are free to do anything as long as it is within the law! Is it against the law to vote for Ralph Nader? It sure is not. So why not vote for him? This isn't just about Ralph Nader, there is also other third parties and independent candidates who are deprived of their destiny to become president because you don't believe they can win, even though you want to vote for them!
 
Let's put it this way; what if you lived in ancient Sparta and you had an illness or handicap, and they threw you off a cliff to kill you? Voting against your candidate because "they can't win" is the same thing! You are giving up your principles for "the lesser of two evils"! You aren't just giving up your principles, you are throwing away your sanity! How sane is it to just give up?
 
You must think you live in ancient Sparta, where you are deprived of life just because of your stature or status in life! Stop living in the past, stop living in denial! Take back your freedom and vote for what matters to you! If you want to vote for a major party candidate, then that's fine, atleast you are staying true to yourself. But vote for "the lesser of two evils" when there are other options you like, then you are an idiot...
