The FINAL Election Items – The FMA Mail Bag!!
  • We received a letter from a listener on the subject of voting…so I thought for the final election items we’d read the letter and chat about it.
    • The Letter:
      • “Hello FMA folks, I have a question for you.  I’ve always enjoyed your stories/opinions/commentary on politics and I was wondering what your thoughts on the voting process are.  I have a hard time justifying voting for someone when I only agree with part of their platform.  I don’t like the idea of supporting something else that I may be against just because they are the lesser of X evils. I realize that it is puristic to abstain from the practice for my personal beliefs but I still find it hard to be able to watch something unfold that I don’t want to support (foreign policy, financial decisions,etc) just because I supported one particular thing on their platform.  At the same time, I could justify not voting if I were more active in a grassroots way but as of late, I am simply not.  This leads me to think that I should be exercising my democratic right as it is a very lucky thing to possess and I’m very fortunate. I realize you’re not an advice column but I wonder what your thoughts are.”
