    Why pick the lesser of two evils when there are more options out there? Why pick either Republican or Democrat? There are more than two options out there.
I battled with myself whether or not to talk about my political views via social media. In my opinion, who you vote for is a personal matter. It falls within what is polite conversation in a social environment. I believe there are three things that fall in the impolite catagory; religion, relationship matters (sex, sexual orientation, drama, etc.), and politics. Each of the three topics spur many arguments that, on a one-on-one basis is great but socially, not so much. And social media is, well social.
I’m not going to use this as my personal agenda to support who I am voting for. If you want to know my personal beliefs then I will tell you, personally. This is more in response to the general idea circling the internet of choosing “the lesser of two evils”. That voting for one of the two major parties is the way to go because it’s not the other guy. Why not vote for the person you like than the person that’s not the other guy?
There are other options. And while mainstream media isn’t doing the other “third party” candidates any justice, they are out there. I am even going to make it easy for you. I am going to include links to the four third party candidates websites as well as the YouTube video of the third party debate that was last night. Watch it and hear what the other people have to say. Visit their websites and read about their political platform. And after you do that then make your decision. 
We are a nation looking for change, hope, and to take a stand. But how do we do these things if we continue doing the same things we have been doing? And if you think voting for a third party candidate is throwing away your vote; then at least you are throwing it away to a person you believe in, and not someone who ISN’T the other guy.
