Death penalty

I think that if people murder, rape, or do a very serious crime should be put to death. You took someone else's life from them , then you deserve to have your life taken. Prison is basically a time out to me.. So I think the death penalty for serious crimes is okay....

Should college and healthcare be government-controlled?

Economics has shown that capitalism always brings out the most efficient use of resources and allocation. However, history has shown that unregulated Laissez-faire capitalism has its own downfall as well. Therefore, it's important for the government to control certain aspects of the market, such as defense and infrastructures for the common benefit of every citizen. However, I also argue that "humanitarian" institutions such as college and healthcare should be controlled too. Here are some of my...

Should minimum wage be raised to $15.00 an hour?

HaleyHendershot

Employees who are paid minimum wage (which currently on average is 7.25) are asking for a raise. But, not just any kind of raise. They want the pay to be increased to $15 dollars an hour. Now an E.M.T(who is trained to save lives) is only paid roughly $14 an hour. So, tell me how a person who flips burgers should get paid more than a person who has a human life on their hands? The minimum wage receivers claim, "We do to much." And, "It's not a livable wage." Although, it may not be a wage where...

Noor Mateen should be arrested for being an accomplice to the shooter. She drove him to the nightclub to help him scope it out. She knew when he was going to do it and didn't notify the police to save all those people's lives. She could've prevented this from happening....

Doctors should be paid more than footballers.

Yes they should. Doctors save lives. Save lives. How much can you buy life for? Footballers entertain people for money and get paid more than doctors. Why is this? They are famous. I'm a football fan, but don't you think its a little bit unfair? Thousands of people die everyday, millions of tears are shed everyday but this number could decrease with doctors. If we pay them more they will work more! More lives saved already. Nobody cries when their football team looses. That's because footba...
