I consider both Billary and The Donald to be extremely poor candidates, neither deserving of the presidency. My intention has been to vote 3rd Party.
But I am now considering voting for Trump solely to fight back against the unified establishment-mainstream media propaganda assault on a candidate that they don't approve of, but was duly nominated by the people. This strikes me as an opportunity to repudiate the press, which doesn't seem to exist as the "fourth estate" any longer. As well as the Republican establishment, which seems to not care what its voters mandate.
Is this a strategically ethical use of my vote? Or, would this simply be a case of getting sucked into the false left-right dog-and-pony show?
I considered voting for Obama in 2012 simply to punish the Republican Party and Romney. Ultimately, Ron Paul was yet again a registered write-in candidate in CA, so chose that option.
