Abolishing the minimum wage will not reduce unemployment

Ragnar_Rahl

In the debate I noticed on Minimum wage (http://www.debate.org/debates/Minimum-Wage), I was disappointed from the Arguments put forth from the Pro side which ended up agreeing effectively that minimum wage reduces employment and just tried to put forth a defence of a subsistence based minimum-wage. I feel that the defense of minimum wage has a lot more meat than what was presented and thus I would like to put the Pro side for minimum wage myself. --- Removing the minimum wage in an economy is...

If Logical-Master answers all of his opponent's questions, he probably won't contradict himself

Logical-Master
Ragnar_Rahl

Rules: 1. PRO must answer all of CON's questions. 2. If PRO contradicts himself, then PRO loses. Otherwise, PRO wins. 3. CON is only allowed to ask a maximum of ten questions in each round other than round 4. 4. Violation of the rules will result in an automatic loss in terms of the individual who violated any one of them. I reserve the right to dispute the contender's rendering of the topic should I feel it doesn't meet the ideas of what the debate is intended for. ....

Religion, Atheism, and Science are Dead Wrong About Reality

GeoLaureate8
Ragnar_Rahl

(Strap yourself in because this one's gonna be tough.) Religion, atheism, and official science are all fronts for the true essence of reality. (You may dismiss some info at first, but keep reading, and it will be understood) They have been established for purposes of divide and rule and to suppress the truth from the people by ruling elites and secret societies since the epoch of civilization. The architects of control such as the most powerful cult, the Illuminati (dates back to the anci...

I hope someone accepts this proposition of mine. And I hope he/she would handle the position of Con nicely. I would like to define some terms about my proposition:Baptism- InChristianity, baptism(from the Greek noun baptisma; itself derived from baptismos, ritual washing), is performed only by full bodily immersion based on theKoine Greek verb baptizo which is understood to mean to dip, immerse, submerge or plunge.Essential – 1.

The voting age in the United States should be eliminated

maxh
Ragnar_Rahl

The voting age in the United States should be eliminated for several reasons. First, this country was founded on 'no taxation without representation'. Despite this, in the 2008 presidential debate, over SEVENTY MILLION citizens, a majority of whom did pay taxes, were denied the basic democratic right to vote merely for having been born in the wrong year. Second, it's discriminatory. We've had laws in the past that arbitrarily denied the right to vote (laws against women or black people voting),...

I will not break a rule.

wjmelements
Ragnar_Rahl

0. By accepting this debate, my opponent agrees to all the rulse already posted. This debate poses off of another debate that was quite comical to me. 1. Rules created hold power over all rules posted later, and no later rule can contradict an earlier rule. 2. Both players should still have the ability to post rules in their turn. 3. A violation of a rule that is not null and void will result in the rule-breaker losing this debate. 4. A player may only do something besides make rule...

Barack Obama's Health Care Plan is simply this... Better than McCains!!!

JTSmith
Ragnar_Rahl

My argument is simple as this... Barack Obama's plan to solve our healthcare crisis is better than McCains! 1. It involves NO government hound-outs!!! 2. It balances inusrance costs by UNAVOIDABLE competition...not by the possible comptetion that McCain hopes will happen 3. Creates an enduring fence around healthcare costs that isnt hands on or government controlled. Its free-market! Unlike McCains plan, Barack's will last indefinately, not provide only immediate relief. 4. Obama's plan...
