Donald Trump will be a Crap president

NotMyActualName.exe
Forthelulz

Well, I am debating against a Trump support, so...the point, where is it? Right here----> Donald Trump could possibly be THE worst candidate for presidency. His ideas are idiotic, not to mention absurd. And all he says in his speech, is "I'm rich, I'm great..."ect. And he speaks his mind. It's good that he doesn't have a "politician's filter", but it would have been better to have. And his statements are laughable. "I have a great relationship with the blacks". Wow, that could possibly be farthe...

The Federal Reserve Should Be abolished:

There are a few terms to this debate that you should agree to before accepting the challenge, they're really simple I just have to state them to resolve a few issues. First of all you are not allowed to "drop out" of the debate, once you accept the challenge you must respond to my arguments in their entirety within 3 days, that way if you start to lose you don't get to flake out on me. Secondly, google documents are not a conduct violation, you could just as easily as I can star...

Moderate inflation is necessary for a healthy economic growth

anthonyliu1

Hi there, I just want to take this opportunity to have an intellectual discussion about inflation. Most economic schools teach their students that moderate inflation is good for the economy but do not explain why it is necessary. I hope by this end of this debate all participants and readers can have a deeper understanding of the nature of inflation. I'm on the side of "Con" which means that i Do Not agree that a moderate inflation is necessary for a healthy economic growth. Following...

Tips at restaurants should be done away with for minimum wage and employee benefits..

longstreet01234

I don't believe that restaurants should be forced to pay their employees minimum wage or give them benefits such as healthcare or dental insurance, due to different reasons on both topics. The average gross revenue for small businesses is usually less than $50,000 a year. From any source I could find most restaurants make quite a bit more gross income than small businesses, so let's say double the amount and say that on average restaurants make a gross income of $100,000 per year. Strictly from...

Should We Have Aquariums

PONY_BABY
alexthedebate

We should not have aquariums since it is imprisoning helpless animals that should have a choice. Humans were put on this Earth to take care of animals, not imprison them to where they can't run around in the wild. Also, guess what? We are a species of animal. Our species is human. Choose the right side and vote against aquariums....

As pro, I argue that the World should return to the gold standard as in the gold standard of 1950. Con argues that it shouldn't return to the gold standard as in the gold standard of 1950. Definitions:The Gold Standard:A monetary system in which a country's government allows its currency unit to be freely converted into fixed amounts of gold and vice versa. The exchange rate under the gold standard monetary system is determined by the economic difference for an ounce...

If something is not common knowledge, cite it. A general rule of thum...
