Why wouldn't your vote count? Your individual vote determines a slate of electors in your state that are pledged to vote a certain way and ultimately select who the President and Vice President is.
What difference would it make if you're a registered party member or an independent. A vote is a vote no?
In amerika a vote by the electorate has never been more than a waste of time during our lifetimes. The founding fathers gluttonously invented the electoral college, because like you say they couldn't trust the commoner, or peasants to vote the right way, so they invented the ec so they themselves could remain in power.
Since the installation of the federal reserve we've been a totalitarian dictatorship run by a single party, with two names, of which both have historically shown since, that they care little for the American people and even less about people elsewhere. Iff'n you're not under the fed's thumb, then you're the enemy.
