I don't want to come across as crass or insulting, so please don't take it this way!), but I actually think the "________ for Dummies" book series are an excellent starting off point!!
They give you the broad concepts, and key facts (Like an expanded Cliff Notes), they're easy to read, concise and contain LOTS of references for you to research or delve into further or wherever you still have questions.
PLUS the authors have written HUNDREDS of books on MANY topics ranging from all types of History to Politics and Presidents, etc.
Here's one on Politics, you might want to start with. Go to the main page to do a keyword search on whatever else you don't understand. :o)

Take a history class. What you will find is that politics is an emotional game. This UHC is fueled by people who "feel" like the system is "unfair". The other side "feels" like it is "unfair" to make society as a whole pay the bills of individuals. The illegal alien issues are driven by emotions and what amounts to "gut feelings" of right and wrong. There are facts to learn, but one of the facts to consider is that we align ourselves with the liberals or conservatives based on how their platforms fit our emotional schema. It is not possible, and please don't try, to practice politics without emotions.
