Why do people not vote for independent candidates?

“I hear people all the time say, well I’m voting for the better of 2 evils. Like in 2000, my father said he didn’t want to vote for bush, but voted for him because he hated gore even more! I said, well why didn’t you vote independent like i did and he said because he didn’t want to throw away his vote. I said, its not throwing it away. The Constitution doesn’t say you have to vote for one of the 2 party’s. I voted for Ross Perot in the 90’s, (and I’m a liberal), and i voted for Ralph Nader in 2000. And will be voting for him this year. If everyone voted for an independent candidate, then they would win! Duh! I refuse to vote for someone of the 2 party’s. I would rather vote for a die hard conservative who’s an independent than a liberal who’s a democrat.”
