Please Waste Your Vote

Please Waste Your Vote

For years I have talked about voting for candidates who are not the  Democrat or Republican front runners in the race. “You are wasting your vote” is the response I get without fail. Am I really? Why am I wasting my vote? Given that response, it would seem that if I don't vote for the Democrat front runner or Republican front runner my vote does not count, it is unimportant, it does not matter.
