I think that the point — missed by nearly all of the commenters here — is to vote *responsibly*, like a grown-up. Vote while owning the result of your vote, and its impact on others. Voting is not an expression of your personal opinion at the expense of the future of our country, snowflake. Voting is your acknowledgement that you are part of a group, and that your vote is responsible for the future of that group. These folks seem to think that their votes are individual acts with no repercussions; as a parent, we raise our children to understand that their acts affect others, and therefore they must act responsibly, even when this means that they are called on to not get their way.
