I want to send a message with my vote! I am already not allowed to protest and assemble to bring my grievances to the government, except in authorized places which makes protest a waste of time. I can't use my vote to express myself!
There is no good reason or hardship on anyone to not record all votes and publish them for everyone to see. I agree that only a person can be elected, but I don't give a shit who is elected. I want badly to send my message and I should be able to do that with my vote!
If enough people would get behind a third party candidate, I would join them. The message could be sent that way, but I remember very well how Ross Perot was demonized and marginalised so people wouldn't vote for him. That should be expected to happen again if anyone began to show any strength. Of course I would support Stein or Anderson but it would send the message again that voting against the two established parties was a waste of time.
90 million people don't vote. They would not vote for Stein or Anderson if MSM began reporting their stances on certain issues. They will continue to stay home and not vote.
Revolution can occur non-violently if we can somehow motivate people to vote! Forget the candidate, send the message with the vote!
