We're All Basically Single Issue Voters

In order to pass the stink test with me, a political candidate must have the correct position on the issue of life. If the person is not pro-life, he/she will not get my vote, even though we may agree on every other issue. "But," some of you may rhetorically ask, "why base your vote on just one issue? There's nothing anyone can do about abortion anyway. It's legal, and it's going to stay that way for a long time" My response: There isn't anyone who can repeal the federal civil rights laws prohibiting racial discrimination. Yet, I'm sure if a political candidate you would otherwise fully agree with were to expressly state he/she was a racial supremacist who thought all non-Caucasions were less than human, you wouldn't even consider voting for him/her.
