China Is a democracy

MasturDbtor
Capitalistslave

China is often criticized for not being a democracy. While its system does not conform to how mainstream Western thought thinks a democracy should be run China's government is in fact a form of democracy.China has competitive elections.In China there are competitive elections at the local level. Then those elected at the local level elect the people at each higher level. Effectively this means that everyone takes part in deciding who will be elected...

Transgendered people are mentally ill

Capitalistslave
salaud

I mean no disrespect for people who are transgender, but it is important to recognize facts of the matter. Similarly, people with depression are mentally ill, so it is important to recognize this and get it treated. Unfortunately, there's a stigma that mental illness is a terrible thing that is used as an insult, I do not mean it in this way and I reject the stigma. I'm going into psychiatry myself, so I definitely do not agree with the stigma that mental illness is insul...

Better QB: Dak Prescott (pro) or Russell Wilson (con)

KingInTheNorth161
jo154676

I think that Dak Prescott is the better QB of the two because Dak Prescott (though a hard loss to Green Bay) has overcome more challenges and has made himself more valuable to his team than Wilson. Dak Prescott has put up better QB numbers than most past QB's in NFL history and will continue to play as a legend. Id Tom Brady can win 4 Super Bowls(probably 5 after this season) then Dak Prescott will be Lord of the Super Bowl rings by the time he even begins to think about retiring....

Round 1 is merely an acceptance round, and the premise of the argument. I do not support the idea non-citizens of the United States should be allowed to participate in U.S. Elections....

Should state grounds allow monuments of a religious nature?

inszel
RonPaulConservative

Following the placement and later removal of the ten commandments in Oklahoma (2015) the question has been raised on whether or not such monuments should be allowed. In my view i see no issue with letting groups show their monuments upon state ground, until we get to the main point. That being that ANY religious group may do so, under the understanding that America is a secular nation and has separation from church and state. Thus such monuments would logically far out number the amount of space...

The flavour of the meat you choose to eat, is irrelevant. We are all heterosexual.

Sonofcharl
Pest

Pro will argue that. Apart from a very small number of people who are physically different. Everyone else is heterosexual. Woman produces the egg, man produces the sperm. How consenting adults choose to gratify their sexual urges, is irrelevant. Rules: 5 open rounds. Use your own brain power. No referencing other peoples work/theories. 100 words max, per round. (Not 8000 characters)....

Is Rock Music Dead?

nco.20
skipsaweirdo

The other day I asked myself when was the last time a Rock song topped the charts. So I did what I had to do, I sought the help of St. Google; to my surprise and dismay the answer to my question was "Heathens", by Twenty One Pilots. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't hate this band nor have I anything against it, it just that that is NOT Rock music. It's something in the ranges of pop and alternative, but it is NOT ROCK MUSIC. So then I asked myself another question, is Rock Music dead? Led Zep...
