Okay. Since I don't live in a swing state

I agree completely with your statement. But, Ron Paul got 4% in my state. I knew he was going to come in dead last when I voted for him and that my vote wouldn't make any difference. Should I not have voted for him?

Now, I can see someone thinking, well, why not vote for a third party candidate then if you were willing to throw your vote away for Ron Paul in the primary. Two differences. 1. Everybody Ron Paul ran against in the primary was a lot closer to Ron Paul than the two on the Democratic ticket. 2. Virgil Goode is not much better than Romney in my opinion and Gary Johnson is worse than Romney in my opinion. Why vote for Virgil Goode who is only marginally better than Romney when Goode has no chance of winning and Romney does?
