I see it as being morally and intellectually consistent with my own belief system. Or as they say, voting ones conscience.

How it effects Obama and Romney is of little import to me, I reject the "lesser of two evils" idea.
I don't see it in the pragmatic way you do. As I see it, my beliefs lose under either an (R) or (D) almost equally, albeit in different ways. My nose is fine either way.
I respect that you feel differently.
