Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.

When one votes for a political candidate, she is also voting for the kind of electoral system she wants. If one prefers a candidate other than Clinton or Trump but buys into the idea of a two-party system and casts a vote for one of the major-party candidates, she is also, intentionally or not, voting for an electoral system with only two options. By casting a vote for a “lesser of two evils,” what we’re really doing is voting our own voice away. We’re endorsing a system in which our opinion is not represented.
There is only one way to waste your vote: voting for someone you don’t want to be president. It is simply not true that there are only two options, or three options, or 50,000 options in November. Voting should never give our conscience a regrettable, dirty feeling. When you vote, do it proudly and vote for someone you truly believe in, whether that’s Clinton, Trump, Johnson, Stein, or someone else. How much more democratic would our country be if everyone voted this way?
