Chart positions or YouTube views do not represent how good an artist is

TheYoungManAndTheSea

I argue that Chart positions or YouTube views do not represent how good an artist is. The idea that one artist is better than another because he or she is more popular is absurd. Music is a form of art and is purely subjective. Therefore the quality of an artist cannot be determined based on whether or not an artist is successful. Chart positions only reflect mainstream exposure, not the actual quality of music....

I believe Marijuana should be legal because it has more benefits than disadvantages. The legalization of Cannabis would be benefit America financially. Jobs will be created helping American citizens and also can be taxed helping pay for other government expenditures and could lower the burden on the American taxpayer.States that have legalized it have seen tremendous amount of benefits for example Colorado has seen a drop of crime rate, 10 million from retail sales in the first 4 months, more re...

Should the Confederate Flag be banned?

CamoSpiderman8
TheYoungManAndTheSea

Is the Confederate Flag really racist? Or just a Southern thing? It's not racist! It's Southern people (like me) showing pride in their country. The flag shouldn't be banned because it's a part of history. Now we can't buy confederate flags online but we can buy Isis and Nazi flags. What is wrong with this world?...

The US Ought to Substantially Restrict Voting Rights

MyDinosaurHands
Texas14

Groundwork: By substantially restrict voting rights, I mean the following: Via Constitutional Amendment, the US should restrict the ability to vote so that only people who are significantly knowledgeable in the realm of politics be allowed to vote. This determination would be made by the creation of a nonpartisan political knowledge test -- created by an equally nonpartisan commission, the members of which would be approved by Congress. Ideally this test would restrict voting rights to...

mentalist
Italkalot

The popular vote is meaningless during presidential elections. As most voters are unaware of this, the media publicizes these farcical popular elections as though they decide who will become president. In fact, the president is more selected than elected and the electoral process is just to make the election appear to be legitimate. shared BoP Opponent must prove that the popular vote is integral in the election process for the presidency....
