    I dont vote because the choice is tweedle dee or tweedle dum. the two party system makes sure that during the caucus time of deciding who gets to run in the race, there will only be dem. or rep. no third party. As a voter registered as a Libertarion for example, sure I can vote now that it is down to just the two, but when deciding who can run they wont let me vote. This is why it can never change and I know my vote dont really count.
