This video sums up my feelings:  


Summary: It's wasted and we'd have to totally overhaul the system to fix that.

not sure how a voter would otherwise actually record their displeasure with the standard 2 parties.  simply not voting is not the same as voting for a 3rd party candidate you actually agree with, imo.  in addition, it seems to me, this would be the most logical (and probably only) way to actually make any progress toward strengthening a 3rd party...

Yes and no. Not voting is throwing your vote away. Third party usually doesn't win. I voted third party for governor in NC, and now I'm stuck with Pat McCrory. I wish I would have voted for the the lesser of the two evils Walter Dalton.

not that I believe in this anymore but this.  a third party doesn't have to be a throwaway vote.  folks fall for the millions spent for the campaign but will rarely give 3rd party a true chance all the while screaming how dems and repubs are the same and how come we can't have a another choice.

I'll just keep hoping for a single transferable vote system.

And I agree with the video that it basically ensures that the most evil of the two wins when votes go to the candidate you agree with 100% because it takes votes from the one you agree with 75%, not the one you absolutely hate to the bottom of your soul. 

Its frustrating overall because it takes eons for the 3rd party to make great grounds.   We need a way to just kick all of their asses out.  We should make them share the job and responsibilities so they have every reason to work hard together and get some work done.

Missed you too!  I went on vacation and my BHM habit just sort of died and I had a ton of other things to take its place.  LOL
I love the Queen Lioness "put out with everything" face.  LOL  Yeah, I would love it if we could rank our vote.  I would like X to win, but if she doesn't have enough votes to win, my second (or third) choice would get the vote instead.  People would feel safer voting for who they really want to vote for and it wouldn't be a wasted vote at all.
