    is almost immoral, if not coward (basically avoiding to make a decision of where he stands) in these elections, I would leave him alone and just think about your own way of approaching the election as a single issue voter.

    I have a son too and he has moments, where he is either so angry or depressed, that he could say something like not going to vote. I know those moments don't last long, thankfully, but they are in general caused by loss of hope.

    And on the other hand nothing gets my son more upset as people who vote on one issue only. I too think that is pretty dangerous. And I would think twice to make up my mind, which of the many issues you shouldn't trade in for the one you are voting on. For me there are many and to find the right balance of what is most, more, or less important is a bit difficult at times. But it needs to be done.

    Just saying ... from one mom to the other.
