Yes it is an option. If I believed they were good for running the country. I don't think either candidates are right for it. So they don't get my vote. If for 2016 either the Reps. or Dems can provide a candidate I like, that person will have my vote. If it's someone from a different party or and Independent, then that person will have my vote. For the last few decades, every administration has screwed something up. The next administration never goes back and fixes it and they screw up too. Im not happy about that. So now I vote based on candidate and not party. I believe that if we keep voting to support a party rather than looking at the candidates and their values, this country is just gonna continue to go downhill. Simply prolonging it(Romney) is not an option to me. No I do not believe Biden and Ryan is the same. But I also like neither.
