This template holds information on a political topic; it should be called with the following structure:

{{Topic
|Start date=The date at which the topic started, if there was one
|End date=The date at which the topic ended, if there was one
|Themes=The theme(s) of this topic, separated by commas if there's more than one
}}

An example of start and end date would be, if the topic is a bill, the date the bill was introduced in Congress, and the date it was signed into law, respectively.

The order of the fields is not relevant.
