Save the Sheridan Expressway!

miannielli

New York City Mayor Andrew Coumo wants to remove one of New York City's most iconic expressways, The Sheridan Expressway (Interstate 895) in the Bronx, NY. If the governor moves forward with his plan, then this will only cause more and more traffic in the Bronx and even New York City, NY! I am from Long Island State, NY and I am highly against this plan because I am tired of having to go through the congested New York City streets to get to either The Bronx, Westchester, Connecticut, Upstate NY,...

Capitalism as an economic system functions better than Socialism.

Do your best to maintain focus on the logical reasoning for how each system functions. I know it will be tempting to talk about unfairness and unjust societies oppressing the working class and such but we are not here to debate your feelings about how people are treated. If you want to take a logical position of the negative externalities created by a working or oppressed class that is acceptable, I have no interest in hearing about evil corporations or the ruthless people of the national social...

Should the words "under god" be in the pledge of allegiance?

I don't think it should stay because that puts down every religion that is not monotheistic, and America is a free country. Some people say that if it is removed, that will offend all monotheistic people, and even though 80% of our country is Christian, that is no reason to offend everyone else. If you sent your kids to school saying something besides that, that wasnt part of your religion, would you be okay with it? Like one nation under Allah? Under Jesus? Under zeus? It honestly should never...

Capitalism: Means of production are privately owned businesses are not regulated.Socialism: The government controls the means of production.(for capitalism)Capitalism is not only the more effective choice but also the moral one. People are allowed to run their businesses how they want and hire who they want. Citizens can work for whoever they want and cannot rely on stolen money for help. When businesses are allowed to operate freely they grow and hire more people and pay...

Assuming the two are mutually exclusive, pure capitalism is preferable to pure communism

Stalinist_from_Canada

First round is acceptance only No new arguments in the final round As you can probably tell from the fact that my opponent is a self proclaimed Stalinist, he will be taking the side of communism To clarify, in pure capitalism the government still exists, but only as an "umpire" as in making sure contracts are enforced, etc. no regulations, that will be up to the free market. I will let my opponent explain what he believes pure communism to be Have a good debate...
