Abortion. It's such a tired topic.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

Abortion.

Confederate Flag Issue

(It doesn't really make a a difference. It is Congress' obsession with infighting and not allowing passage of ANY legislation from across the aisle that is the big problem. Along with K Street's absurd influence on them.)

All of them except (1) universal single payer health care, (2) public universities being completely funded by tax payers (read: eliminating tuition costs to students while at their universities), (3) eliminating welfare administration entirely, (4) near universal drug legalization, and (5) eliminating all statuary limits on tort recovery in civil law suits (read: repealing the idiotic laws that Republicans pushed through in the 80's and 90's that force taxpayers to bear the costs of, for example, medical malpractice, while giving incompetent doctors a windfall by shielding them from individual responsibility).

(There are other legal changes that I would make (for example, create a national trust fund to compensate victims who were harmed by generic drugs like generic pain patches, generic actuate, etc.), but those aren't really political issues which -even though it's not specifically outlined in the title- generally seems to be the "kind" of issues the OP is concerned with, given the nature of his response... but I digress.)

So... yeah. Unless an issue is, or comes close to one of the topics I listed.... I generally don't care.

Abortion, I'm neither angry at people for killing their children, nor supportive of them doing so. Unfortunately people always try to drag me into abortion debates.

There are so many honestly, but a few.

Abortion

Gender Equality [in the West, I believe it's no longer a concerning issue here]

Drug Legalization

Oh, I also don't care about the confederate flag. I think the people offended by it are clearly idiots unaware of it's current meaning or usage. I also think people who proudly wave it are idiots. I just generally annoyed at anyone over prows of their region, by it the south their country, state or city.

So idiots that fly the confederate flag are equally as stupid as idiots who fly the PuertoRican flag.

Gay marriage and abortion.

They're just SO boring.
Commentator on a picture with David Cameron and a Cat: 'Amazing what you can achieve with photoshop these days. I'm sure that used to be a pig.'

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'

I also don't care about Gay marriage. I actually felt like democrats were sabotaging the legalization of that, because it would lose them some one issue voters, though. I just feel like gay marriage is something that would have been legalized 15 years ago, if not for the internal sabotage.
