The Top Ten
1 Legalization of Abortion

I'm a non-American, but from an outsider's perspective, I'd say this is the most divisive issue because there are even some on the left who are pro-life.

I thought abortion would be an ethical issue, but nope. It's somehow a political issue.

Whether or not abortion should be legal.

2 Immigration

Whether or not to grant foreign citizens the right to migrate to our country and the treatment of illegal immigrants.

3 Separation of Church and State

Whether or not Christian values and ideologies should influence lawmaking.

Easy answer: Religion should not influence politics.

4 Gun Ownership

Who trusted these radical politicians to deal with these issues? I want to know.

Whether or not private citizens can own and carry guns.

5 Global Warming

Why are we even debating about this? The planet is dying. During this time, we could spend trying to delay the inevitable. We're fighting about whether we want to take action or not.

Do people really still debate this?

Whether or not climate change is real.

6 Legalization of Drugs

Whether or not recreational drug usage should be legal, specifically "marijuana."

7 LGBT Rights

I really don't know why this is a political issue. It really shouldn't be, and people in the LGBT community should just be able to live their lives normally like straight people without worrying about politicians magically taking it away every four years or so.

Should not even divide politics.

8 Gender Pay Gap

Whether or not the "Gender Pay Gap" is real and, if yes, should it exist.

Why is this a division? It's pretty simple what to do about it.
