Need to Read

You know what we need? We need a central location where we can find links to informational resources indexed by issue. Also, forums and discussion boards indexed by focus, and maybe rated according to activity and even level of discourse. Ideally, it would include forums of all perspectives, so we can go see what people of all stripes are having to say about a topic. I want a site to which I can turn when I see some mouth-breather online claiming that "2 out of 3 Americans support prison terms for sodomites". Somewhere I can go where both pro and anti-sodomites can tell me if they think that's true.

Or more to the point, when someone insists that tax cuts for the wealthiest 1% of Americans will obviously stimulate the economy and be good for everyone. I want a place to go where I can find a wide variety of resources to help me refute that. Also a place where I can study up when I have a free moment. The next 2 and 4 years are gonna be tough, and I hereby resolve that I'll go into the next election at least twice as well-read and informed on all of my issues as I was this time.

And I'm willing to work on a site to help other folks do that, too. Maybe a wikipedia kind of set up. Does such a thing exist? Anyone what to help me build one, if not?
