About GOP Club Resource   (Read more)

The GOP Club Resource started in the Republican Club at Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire. Our mentor, Dr. Philip Tisdall, started teaching political argument to a small group of republicans on a predominately liberal campus. Over the years, our methods have evolved, and our group has grown. After requests from other clubs for our resources, we decided to put what we had on the web-- and open them up for everyone to edit. So please, tell your friends, and help us build a more complete, more helpful set of resources.

The Basics   (Content Listing)

Start with these to give your club a good understanding of the terms they should be using to talk politics. It starts with a basic understanding of ideologies, economics, and, for those of us on university campuses, political argument.

Working Articles: these are ready to bring into your club for instruction and discussion

Stubs: Help us build better resources on these topics by writing and expanding them. Each section has a list of a few articles

Featured Article: Health, Health Care, and Health Insurance

Stethoscope by a.drian

Democrats think we have too little health insurance. Republicans think we have too much health care.
Health care was a critical domestic issue in the 2008 presidential campaign. There are two critical elements in the debate:

1. Knowing the difference between health, health care or health insurance
2. Understanding your data.

If you master both of these, then you will dominate any debate with those who have not. Do not feel you have to know everything. In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.
