#2 This fallacy one more time: It's possible that some contenders won't make it to Texas on March 3, and a vote for a candidate who dropped out would be wasted.

Voting for your choice of a candidate is never wasted. Choosing a candidate is not the same as picking numbers on a Lottery ticket.

#3 Choosing a candidate is not the same as picking numbers on a Lottery ticket.

Right. If you lose the lottery you are out two bucks, nobody is harmed. You win you don't give a damn who is prexident.

#4 You win you don't give a damn who is prexident.

If it's Bernie, he'll collectivize your winnings--into his bank account.

#5 If Boiney wins and I win the lottery prior to that it's Cayman for me.

#6 I'll admit I've been playing with the idea of a negative vote for when you don't care who wins along as it isn't
fill in the blank. A negative vote would subtract one vote from the selected candidate's total. If nothing else, you can't be blamed for voting for the moke who does eventually get in.

#9 ^ Next Constitution. All the losers are banned from elected office for 10 years if None of the Above wins.

#10 I voted for Cruz in the 'publican primary in Texas 4 years ago. But it wasn't a throw away vote. At least it wasn't a caucus.

#11 That's the risk you take for voting early.

#12 Maybe, but "Progressives" certainly are obsolete.
