Blaine66
SCOTSKNIGHT12

The reason i say we should be more worried about the environment is there are at least 8.7 million species on this earth only 1 of which is affected by the economy. All of them are affected by the quality of the environment, including humans. Of we screw up the environment too bad we will only ensure our extinction...

Raising the Minimum Wage

Though at face value the raising of the minimum wage may seem like it is a good idea, the future economic repercussions are vastly more costly. Think of the people that the raise of the minimum wage will hurt. The small business employer has to pay more in an already tough market with lots of expenses. He or she now has some options on how he wants to deal with workers needing to be payed more. He could either pay them and cut other costs like product value, resulting in loss of sales, which the...

Do you think the government should provide free medical care for everyone?

descield

[I choose SPAIN as reference] The fact that the government doesn't provide enough medical care (public) for everyone it's because a lot of people doesn't pay taxes, such as illegal immigrants. They work and they don't collaborate anything with the government, so... Do they still deserve to have free supplies taking into account that they act as a free riders? In other words, they take advantage of the service of medical supplies from the government without paying taxes....

Are wind turbines bad?

Mclachlan
Shrek_sDrecKid

I think wind turbines are bad, especially in Ontario. The Ontario province looses $ 1.2 billion a year thanks to the wind turbines. They do loose more, but the 1.2 billion dollars is just from the turbines alone. The turbines are powered up from hydro ( not environmentally friendly) and coal plants. The cost of wind power will add 110,000,000,000 dollars to taxpayers hydro bills. There is also oil in them ( is that environmentally friendly?) Don`t complain about the oil sands or pipelines when y...

Is America the Best Country in the World?

matthewmatt14

This argument will not be used to debate things like patriotism, and I do not want ignorant arguments such as "America is the best because it is." This debate will be used to actually discuss WHY (economically, educationally, militarily, etc.) America is the best, or why it is not. I will be taking the con in this argument. Round One: Acceptance (No Arguments) Round Two: Opening Arguments, No Rebuttals Round Three: Rebuttals, Further Arguments Round Four: No New Arguments, Further Rebuttal...
