There are enough people out there that are so disgusted with their lot in life; that they will knowingly who vote for the worst possible canidate just to burn it all down. I'm not even talking about the dum dums who believe in Trump, I'm talking about the people who know the system is screwing them.
If the machine doesen't work for them then why should it be allowed to work for anyone? Why should I knowingly support a canidate who may talk a good game but will give exactly two f-cks about people who work for a living (or would like to).
Its like a house burning down, and the people in the house are allowed to vote for a fireman who won't save the people in the first floor no matter what but will save the people in the floors above them, or a fireman who may help a few people in the attic but the house is gonna burn down regardless.
What incentive will the people on the first floor have to save the building? None that I can see.
F-ck I'm not explaining this right.
The choice is between a president that does some good things and one who does many, many terrible things.
You'd like it to be otherwise, but that's how it is. It's possible that options might expand in the future, but (paradoxically, because Constitution) voting third-party actually makes this less likely.
