Why don't you pull the trigger and find out?
^ ThisIf this is true, why is every pro-Clinton voter I know trying to convince the world that not voting third party is a moral imperative? It seems to me that this is the first election in my voting lifetime where the parties have openly acknowledged that the decision whether or not to vote third party does matter.It's precisely this sort of glib dismissal that props up the status quo and prevents real change in our political system.

I've also never had an expensive ring, because I wanted to be able to wear it without fear of damaging it (and we both knew I'd probably lose it). It turns out we were...
