    OK, so I get not voting for, say, Jill Stein, if you're in a swing state. I don't want Romney to win either.

    But to say it doesn't matter at all even in uncontested states is asinine. Comments here are essentially simultaneously telling me that my vote is of utmost importance, but also not important at all. Which one is it?

    If the Green Party, for example, gets 5% of the vote they will get 20,000,000 in federal funding for the next election. They'be barely managed to raise $2,000,000 last I checked. That's notable and, sorry, if I can help that happen without ruining Obama's chances in my already decided state? Then I'm going to do it.

    There is always going to be a "times like these!" excuse anyway. I get it -- but at what point do we decide that an additional party does matter? What's being argued is that this election is super important -- is there ever a Presidential election anyone here would say wasn't? Really?

    And frankly, I think calls by people writing on here saying go to another site are ridiculous -- I thought this was about "progressiveness", not strictly GOTV for Democrats. Maybe I don't get the site anymore.
