Of course, you're the typical white college educated male. The system, designed for you, will not be particularly changed for you regardless of the next president. For everyone else, it's a different story.

So it's easy for you to be smug and treat your vote like the bauble you think it is, because to you it is insignificant. You're set no matter what.

Still better than pissing my pants in terror.

Seriously though, under Hillary, the stock market's not gonna collapse, and ISIS aren't going to overrun the country. She's not going to be able to pass any meaningful gun control and I highly doubt any 'upgrades' to Obamacare are in play 'til at least 2020. Hell, she probably won't even have the Senate either, which means the SC isn't in play til 2020 either.

Similarly, most of Trumps foreign policy BS will be steamrolled by DoD inertia, he's not going to institute a theocracy and he ain't going to be Putin's BFF.

If enough people do it the major parties will be forced to actually represent the people

It won't happen. People like tribalism, especially in a representative democracy. If you were going to spend more than 5 minutes attention on who's running for president, you'd just do it yourself.
