|About Me:||I greatly enjoy a good, clean, intelligent debate that has substance to it. When I get into a debate I never mince words and speak it the way I see it. Although far from my intentions, this tends to offend some people so I warn you in advance. My political views can be summed up in one sentence. I am a God-loving, patriotic, conservative American who strongly espouses the conservative principles laid down by Ronald Reagan.|
|Quotes:||"If you have a fault to find with anyone, tell him, not others. There is no more dangerous experiment than that of undertaking to be one thing before a man's face and another behind his back."-R.E.Lee|

(I want to debate scottberman this, but i'm already debating him i'll do so later... anyone else want to give it a try?) I will use my positional statement as my opening argument and allow my opponent to go first. Good Luck....
Marriage and its definition has evolved over time, as society has evolved. It seems utterly ridiculous that in the United States, a country that prides itself on freedom, such a menial issue is even up for debate. This should not be a right gays should have to fight for, it should be one automatically bestowed on every citizen....
The death penalty is currently offered as a form of punishment in 38 states. There are many reasons why it should not be, however. First, twelve people should not be allowed to judge whether or not someone has the right to live. We cannot place value on one person's life over another's. Someone who has been convicted of murder is still a human being. They still have a mother and a father and they still have the right to live. Killing the person convicted of a murder is not going to offer clo...
