Vote for a third party? and waste a vote?

Chris Ortiz over at The Chalcedon Foundation had some thoughts on Voting this Season.

Original post found HERE: How Then Shall We Vote?

How then shall we vote? Well, before I attempt to answer that “not-so-complex” question, allow me a moment to state first what I believe should be our larger concern.
