Too big to fail is too short minded for longer economic growth.

Mfuss

Definition 'Too Big To Fail': The idea that a business has become so large and ingrained in the economy that a government will provide assistance to prevent its failure. "Too big to fail" describes the belief that if an enormous company fails, it will have a disastrous ripple effect throughout the economy. [1] The argument of "Too Big to Fail", is a theorized and untested argument. Too big to fail and moral hazard walk hand in hand and when the too big to fail doctrine is set to motion moral...

Minimum Wage Should Not Be Raised

bballcrook21
Brian1813

I will be arguing for a stable federal minimum wage in the United States. I personally believe that the minimum wage should be abolished altogether, as I believe in almost nonexistent government intervention in business. However, I am arguing that we should not increase the minimum wage any higher then it already is on a federal basis. This comes from the fact that Seattle, NYC, LA, and Chicago have all raised their minimum wages to an exorbitant amount, which will eventually end up in los...

Capitalism vs. Socialism

bballcrook21

Socialism requires a centralized, looming federal government that restricts liberty for the good of the nation. Capitalism, on the other hand, requires a decentralized, hands off federal government that leaves most matters to local governments, as local governments can address issues with more precision. Socialism, on one hand,...

The Confederate Flag.

Canatheist

The Confederate flag IS racist. In no way does it show that people fight for this country, it is a symbol of mistakes. It is the exact same situation as when Hitler took the Swastika and turned it into a racist flag. It only takes a slip up to make an innocent symbol into a racist symbol. If anyone honestly defends this flag, you're ruining the point of why this country came to be- human freedom. We are free to create a government to make everyone happy. This country is supposed to give religiou...

Gay marrige

Maciebaker
Zarroette

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....
