Abortion should be illegal in the United States

Lifeisgood

Medical abortion first became legal in the United States in 1973 under the Roe v. Wade supreme court ruling. In this debate, I wish to show that this ruling should be overturned, as abortion goes against the Constitution. I will prove this using logic and clear facts. I will start by defining my terms. There are many kinds of abortion, but in this debate I will specifically address the type of abortion legalized in Roe v.Wade. That is, abortion before the point of viability. I also wish to in...

George Bush Was a Good President

youngpolitic

I would like to open up my argument by saying that I believe that President George W. Bush did a great job as president and does not deserve all of the criticism he received when he left office. I will support this statement by using these arguments: a) Bush reacted to the best of his ability in the 9/11 situation. He worked fast and efficiently under enormous amounts of pressure. b) He always did what he thought was right. Bush did not cave into the demands of Congress and the people, he...

Burning the Flag of the United States of America Should Be Legal.

TheSkeptic

As you should well know, the flag of America is the good 'ole red, white and blue. As a symbol of our nation, I contend that the burning of it in any way for whatever reason - as long as it doesn't physically harm another individual like burning people's houses down - should be legal. My argument in favor of this is that freedom of speech and expression allows us to burn the flag for reasons such as protest. The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America reads as...

RESOLVED: George Bush should be regarded as America's best President

funnybrad333

George Bush is defined as our current president. President is defined as the official in charge of our president. Regarded is defined as considered. Best, in my opinion, is defined as the most productive and capable [president], yet this word is extremely subjective in this debate. My two contentions so begin are as follows: 1) President Bush has never faultered in his existence 2) President Bush is a rolemodel to the world, leading the greatest nation to an unimaginable prospe...

I have decided that i would like to take the converse of visions debate "homosexuals are destorying the america". Homosexuals have been around since the 13th century, but it was not aloud to be seen. Between 408 B.C.E to 400 B.C.E the famous ancient greek philosopher. From his publication of The Symposium, it showed acts of homosexuality. Plato expresses to "celebrate" the relationship between man and man. Even plato quotes that the symposium is a "manual" to homosexuality "The Symposium mig...

A Woman Cannot Be President

visionsofdylan

In generations past around the globe in the history of the world, men have been superior to women. Honestly, i believe that women's suffrage is a joke. Woman cannot fight in wars (i mean technically they can, but who wants a woman in your platoon with a machine guarding your back, i for one can't) they are have periods every month, and say a woman is in term and a crucial decision is brought to the attention of the board. And biologically woman are proven to be "cranky" at that time of month and...
