Democrats vs. Republics, just one of the many topics on Debatepedia

For the past week, we’ve been working on the debate article, Democrats vs. Republicans. It’s pretty good, as in excellent. I’ll also be doing a couple of YouTube videos on this soon. As with every new topic on Debatepedia though, it could use further development, especially the introductory “background” section. Have a look, enjoy, give an edit and leave some feedback!

Also, have a look at the Debate Digest Cue to see some upcoming topics that we’ll be working on that currently have very little or no content. Topics on Debatepedia range from categories of politics, morality, law, economics, culture, the environment and more.

Debatepedia is the “the Wikipedia of pros and cons.” Its mission is to “clarify public debates and improve decision-making globally.” Debatepedia is a project of the International Debate Education Association (IDEA) and is also endorsed by the National Forensic League. It utilizes the same wiki technology powering Wikipedia to engage you and other citizen editors in clarifying public debates by centralizing them into a single pro/con encyclopedia.
