The US has a two party system. It's designed to be like that in the Constitution. Until we make massive amendments the Constitution, or draft a new Constitution, we're stuck with this two party system. I'll be the first to say that our two party system doesn't work very well, and that we should change it. But until we do, we'll always just have two major political parties (perhaps a third party will emerge for a brief period of time, but we're almost always back down to two dominant parties again by the next presidential election). So, go ahead and throw away your vote if you want. Go ahead and waste your time watching a third party candidate if you wish. But know that in almost all elections, that there isn't a viable third party candidate. This election is no different. On the other hand, if you actually want to see a real change in our form of government, then do what you can to try to raise awareness of the situation and try to get an amendment drafted and passed to change the US Constitution, and let's get ourselves a parliamentary government instead of the broken two party government that we have.
