Gay marrige


Hello, to whoever may read this. I do not mean to offend you but these are my beliefs and I do feel strongly about them. So, be prepared lol. I have always felt gay marrige should be legalized. Quite frankly until this week when it finally was, I never thought it would happen. I'm not a member of the LGBT community, but I'm 100% for it. Don't get me wrong, it's not a total shock to me when people want to use bible verses and Jesus Christ as reasons gays shouldn't marry. I understand completely....

The Concept of Money Does More Harm than Good.


The concept of money has been around since the dawn of time. However, as many people know, money is often the cause of greed and corruption. I find that the world would be a much better place without money. I've put a lot of thought into this, and I have to admit, I have a feeling that having such a complex topic for my first debate will come back and bite me in the neck. Leave a comment or message me if you'd like to take up this challenge. Bear in mind, despite my "rookie" status on this...

Should the Confederate Flag be banned?


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?...

advertisement leads to rise in economy


Why do most people prefer Coca-Cola to some other cola? Why do some people prefer Calvin Klein underwear to some other unadvertised brand? Are the advertised products functionally better? Not necessarily. But, in the mind of the consumer, advertising has given these brands added value. In the mid-1960s, a famous psychologist named Ernest Dichter asserted that a product"s image, created in part by advertising and promotion, is an inherent feature of the product itself. Subsequent studies sho...

Gay marriage


I believe that gay marriage should be legal in all states. You may not realize it, but the reason your against it is because it's not normal to you. Most people dream of getting married to the opposite sex of themselves, but some people don't. Others dream of marrying the same sex. There's nothing wrong with that! People go around and say that gays are sinners and that they shouldn't have the right to get married. Gays are still humans beings. People. People with rights and freedom. gays just wa...

In a socialist economy no parents have to worry about rather or not they can feed there children as well as medical bills.
