    I understand your brother's perspective. Under the electoral college system which is winner takes all in most States, if you're a conservative in a liberal state or vice versatile you often end up feeling as though you vote counts for sh*t. I have voted in every presidential election since I was old enough. 1996 was the last time my vote counted.

    I sent my absentee ballot in, with my write in of Jon Huntsman, because he was my candidate from the beginning, and darnit, I'm going to vote for the guy, even though he dropped out of the race. I refuse to vote for either of the two that will eventually be president.

    I'm happy with what I did.

    I think if you spend any time at all in a country where voting has not always been an option, and free and fair elections are a fairly new concept for a large section of the population, you realize what is important. Civil rights should never be taken for granted.

    I really, really wish I could have voted in this election, here's hoping for 2016.
