    Then you lose your voice to bitch about trump. You are enabling him.

    Not at all. Unlike you I understand how the electoral college works. I refuse to hold my nose and vote and in my state I can proudly vote my conscience. Voting is a pleasure for me.

    I guess Y is in a Democrat state so it won’t matter. In some states it will matter.

    If I vote for Biden do I lose the right to complain about anything Biden does? I want to make sure to vote in a way that I still have a right to complain about bad policy no matter who wins. But it seems my right to complain is going to be curtailed no matter who I vote for, or even if I don't vote.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    This is nonsense. In America, your right to bitch is absolute whether you voted for a major party candidate or not.

    You, obviously, missed the point. Vote for who you think can beat trump. Vote for someone who OBVIOUSLY wii not make the cut.. then shut up about trump... you helped re-elect him.

    Frugal-one, have you also taken a class in our First Amendment right to complain about the government?
