Hate Crimes Enhancements in the United States are unjustified.

represent219

To justify a hate crime enhancement, you would have to justify that someone should be punished more severly because of their own beliefs. And for this reason, Hate Crime Enhancements are Unjust in the United States. Point 1. Constitutional Right. It is clearly written in the first amendment that you have the right to free speech and such. In this amendment, it is understood that you have the right to hate someone, and there is nothing unjust about hate. If someone were to commit a crime sim...

Australia is a better place to live than the USA.

Biowza

Yes, Australia is a better place to live than the USA. By 'better place to live' I essentially am referring to living standards. This refers to the living standards of the country as a whole, as in, just providing an example of one person living happily does not make any country a better place to live than any other. This debate is 4 rounds. I will demonstrate that A) The living standard in the USA is comparatively poor to Australia B) The living standard in Australia is superior to...

The Internet: The Last True Example of Free Speech (Net Neutrality)

believer_720

NOTE: DO NOT TAKE THIS DEBATE IF YOU ARE GOING TO DEBATE THAT THE INTERNET IS OUR LAST VESTAGE OF FREE SPEECH. THAT IS NOT THE TOPIC OF THIS DEBATE. NET NEUTRALITY IS. I believe that Net Neutrality should be spared, and should be kept away from Virgin Media's grubby, greedy hands. For those who don't know, I'll summarize net neutrality in a simple way. Net neutrality is what lets you sit at your computer, hop on the internet, and visit every site on the internet at the same speed. Now, gra...

In the United States, prostitution should be legal.

Xera

In the United States Prostitution should be legal. There are three main reasons I have for making this claim: 1) Our government should not be allowed to dictate a persons motivations for engaging in intercourse. 2) People in American society should have the right to do anything they wish to do, so long as no other person is harmed. Excepting harms caused solely by the existence of the laws prohibiting prostitution, no person is being harmed by the practice of prostitution. 3) Laws rega...

Obama's tax plan is idiotic.

shwayze

I want to especially single out Obama's plan to raise the corporate tax from, which by the way, he hasnt said by how much....go figure. Right now the corporate tax rate in the United States is 35%, the second largest in the world (Japan is #1). Obama wants to raise this corporate tax rate. Do you know why we have unemployment? ITS BECAUSE COMPANIES GO TO MEXICO, CANADA, EUROPE, AND ASIA TO DO BUSINESS. Why would a corporation stay in the United States and get taxed to death when they can go to,...

Obama is either gay or bisexual and a former crack user

ILoveCheese

I will take either the pro or con side depending on what my challenger decides. Last week Larry Sinclair gave a press conference regarding his allegations that he performed oral sex on Obama and he witnessed him using crack. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUNEip42xsM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uw2hc05HwPw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ13qyFup98 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AfVPvASc_4&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYin6nMAz-o&feature=related http://ww...

Debate.org should have a message system so members can communicate more efficiently.

Olhando

Hello all, I'm bored here so I thought I'd think about ways to change our site. 1- By having a message system, like Myspace or Facebook - as in mail / comments - members will have access to better communication. 2- This will help spand out ideas. Friends can talk about a debate without it being posted on the debates comments, saving room and time. 3- The system will also be similar in the way that you can approve or deny a comment, so no slander will be shown. 4- It will make the s...

John McCain will make a better president than Barack Obama

alvinthegreat

As many of you may know, Obama has just captured the Democratic Nomination for president. Also, as many of you may know, McCain captured the Republican Nomination for president back in February. Thus, the stage is set for one of the most important presidential race in recent history. Now, that the candidates have been finally decided, I strongly advocate that McCain will be a better president than Barack Obama in terms of experience, national policy, and foreign policy. ========= On to th...
