Adam, you confuse fear with practicality. As a history buff, you know — but apparently choose to ignore — that history has proven these third party votes to be both a waste of time and counterproductive. In 1968, progressives disgusted by the Viet Nam war positions of both parties, failed to vote and we got Richard Nixon. Most recently, “principled” Nader voters handed us W, and the Iraq war. Now, you want to hand us Trump? I suggest you use some of that knowledge of history that you claim to possess.
