Personally, I'm cynical about my participation in a system I can only honestly consider hopelessly broken due to how hucksterish and unserious the people who participate in an administrative capacity too largely act and bend over to the wants of financial and corporate oligarchs. I still vote, because it's honestly a civic duty, but I always vote for the third party candidate who expressly advocates things I care about. Even though I accept they will not win, I consider it my responsibility to vote my conscience and reject being emotionally baited into choosing the less repugnant candidate in a duopoly I don't believe in.

I always pin my hope on the idea that maybe one day enough people will feel the same way that these candidates can not continue to be ignored.
