You should probably pick some sort of area that is generally of interest to you.

For example, if you care about things like the definition of human life and how that is in conflict with the needs of science, you might write about the use of embryonic stem cells.  The current policy bans the use of federal funds for research into how these might be used to cure diseases.

Or maybe you care about the drug war.  Current policy makes drugs such as marijuana illegal and imposes fairly high penalties for selling them.  Should they be legalized?

Finally, what about health insurance.  Should the government make sure that everyone has health insurance?  Should the government be allowed to force people to buy health insurance the way that they have to have car insurance.

There are many other possibilities, but these are a few for you to consider.
