Banning Guns in America is Unethical and Unconstitutional.

XionChan
softmer

I will be taking Pro of Gun Rights. I really wanted an intelligent and deep discussion about gun rights and gun laws in a previous debate, but my opponent didn't participate in it and never replied to my argument. ---I will consider it a freelance debate; no set rules about the rounds--- I will open with an argument of constitutionality. As most people on DDO may know, the Second Amendment states: "Amendment II A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a fre...

Is a Capitalist government beneficial for the nation in the long run?

Politicallion
AniKnight

This issue is controversial and I am willing to debate on it, as I need answers. A Capitalist government envisages enormous amounts of economic growth but will eventually turn out to be a struggle for the middlemen and the poor to live due to the increase in the price of basic commodities. Capitalism is like providing the field with fertilizers, You might reap a bounty crop in a short period of time. But, continuous use would mean stripping the field of it's nutritive value. Handling a nation...

National Security Ought to be Valued Over Freedom of the Press

SpiffyTexan
DebayushChakraborty

"No government ought to be without censors, and where press is free, none ever will." It is because I agree with Thomas Jefferson that I must negate the resolution resolved, that National security ought to be valued over freedom of the press. Infringements upon essential freedoms in the pursuit of safety and security betray priorities contrary to the fundamental values of democratic nations, and often fails to result in improved security. My value, or what I'm striving to achieve is Liberty,...
