I'm not voting Republican or Democrat. I think McCain is a good man, but I'm likely going to vote 3rd party.
I'll probably vote for Bob Barr.
Might as well throw your vote away. A vote that isn't for McCain is a vote that puts Obama one more step towards the White House.
Not correct. Jack's vote only matters in a handful of states. If he lives in a solid blue or solid red state, his vote contributes nothing to the selection of the president. Unless, of course, a significant portion of his state's voters also choose to vote third party - then, it appears Jack has contributed to the growth of a multi-party system, which seems to be a worthy goal, and not consistent with "throwing one's vote away".
Don't worry too much - I'll be balancing Jack's non-McCain vote with one for the Green candidate (unless it's Nader, and then I'll write in Gore.)
LOL @ Al Gore. You're an idiot.
