Voting is the bottom line of democracy. But only if people vote for candidates that, for the most part, support what they believe in. Voting for a candidate that you consider to be on the wrong side of most important issues just because some other candidate is even worse (the "lesser evil" trap), is a waste. It ensures that the winner will be evil.
We are NOT forced to choose between terrible Democrats and terrible Republicans. In most states there are alternative parties on the ballot, such as the Green Party, that, on the whole, represent our views. If there is no such choice on the ballot, then a write-in vote is an appropriate option.
