    this is beyond common sense. In my entire life, my one vote has had zero affect on the ultimate outcome of the election. Never has the margin of victory been so close that my vote counts in any election at any level. I imagine the vast majority of you are in the same boat.

    So taking the position that a vote for x is a vote for y is just idiotic. Anybody that brings this notion forward should be laughed out of the room.

    Beyond common sense? How is it not common sense to vote for who you align with the most? Just because there isn't a large chance of them winning doesn't make voting for them a nonsensical choice. But you're free to think as you like.

    I was clearly not clear in my meaning.

    by beyond common sense, I meant it is so obvious that you don't even need common sense to accept the premise.

    in other words, we agree. sorry for the confusion

    On some fronts is seems like we're in a sort of modern day Dark Ages and common sense doesn't much exist as people have mostly stopped thinking all together.

    Well, sorry on my part as well.

    And yet some PhDs are libertarians, so that thrown out the idea they understand politics.

    Interesting, how exactly does the party they vote for 'represent their interest'? Be careful to not be too racist in answering.

    I didn't waste that much time in school just so I could owe for the rest of my life and thus become an snob. But as predicted, you have zilch to put forth that shows someone with a PhD would do a 'better' job at voting than anyone else.

    Kind of reminds me of the reality that if you ever run across someone that brags about being in the special forces, odds are, they are lying. For those that have been there do not brag about it. Same thing with those that brag about being 'smart'.

    I firmly believe this country is f***'ed no matter what, but at least I will vote for someone who would actually challenge the status-quo if elected. It's not my fault that most of America is largely uneducated about what's actually going on, I've done the best I can.
