We need an ammunition depot; a repository of articles, essays etc that deal with the various issues.

The threads would be named for the topic they address with a sub-title briefly describing the gist of the thread, i.e...

GLOBAL WARMING: Greenland Getting Colder
IRAQ WAR: David Kay's Senate Testimony
IRAQ WAR: Saddam's Terrorist Ties
2nd AMEND: Gun Owners Stop Crime
ABORTION: 3D Sonograms Show Life

Might I also add: all articles, videos etc. should have links to credible sources.

The purpose would not be to debate a given thread but to have a repository of references, although exceptions may be made for additions or counters to a given article, i.e. an article referencing a study may be outdated/reaffirmed upon the publishing of a subsequent study. It would be wholly appropriate to add the subsequent findings to the OP.
