Only one thing really mattered in Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s second debate, namely Trump saying he’d use the power of the presidency to put Clinton in jail. Jailing political opponents is the absolute, fundamental cornerstone of dictatorship, the literal opposite of democracy.

A vote for Trump is therefore a vote against democracy itself, and a vote for Clinton ― even if you disagree with her on everything else ― is a vote for democracy’s preservation. A non-vote or vote for a third-party essentially says you don’t care enough about this fundamental question to weigh in on it.

Where do you stand?
