16kadams
Mikal

Select winner. 2k. I am going to literally copy and paste Roy's stuff cause it fits well. "The death penalty, i.e. capital punishment, is "execution of an offender sentenced to death after conviction by a court of law of a criminal offense." [1. http://www.merriam-webster.com...] Currently 32 states and the Federal government have a death penalty. [2. http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org...]. ... In this debate I will argue that a death penalty should be maintained as part of the U.S...

Does the president have a right to violate the second amendment or even ban it?

ryankordecki
Ave_Matthew

The president does not have the right to take away our second amendment(the right to bear arms) it is unconstitutional and we as Americans should have the right to protect ourselves especially with how dangerous things are today. there is a possibility that a president could pull an Abe Lincoln and make another amendment to cancel out the second amendment, and he shouldn't have that right. Again, we as Americans have the right to protect ourselves. and i understand there are crazy people out the...

Should the U.S. have dropped the atomic bomb?

KathyMaii
Santa.Shree

America should have dropped the atomic bomb on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki because Japan caused massive destruction at Pearl Harbor, the bomb prevented casualties, and helped to end World War 2. On December 7, 1941, hundreds of Japanese fighter planes surrounded and attacked an area relative to Honolulu, Hawaii in order to neutralize the U.S Pacific Fleet and restrain them from interfering with the southeast military. Ninety minutes into the...

Gay Marriage (U.S.A)

WDJax
Vladimirova

While a good amount of states already legalized Gay/Lesbian marriage, most of the United States has not done so. Why? What legal grounds are against gay marriage? Many argue that it's immoral because the Bible/Koran/(Insert Religious book here) says so, but America has established a separation of Church & State. "Moral" reasons have no say in a topic that touches legality. Also, me, myself I don't see homosexual couples or homosexual people as bad. Also, with the stigma of homosexuals being m...

Could a Female be President of the United States?

PatWilkinson
WheezySquash8

Honestly, I don't think a Female could handle being President. The main reason is that Women don't have the correct mentality, nor are they respected by countries where women are seen as less than men. I mean take this for example: A female President has to go and discuss something with a leader from a country like Saudi Arabia, there is no way that the Leader of that country is going to respect anything that woman would have to say. Another thing, there will be times where going to war with ano...

Pro must prove a border fence should be put up at the US-Mexican border. 4. Con must prove a border fence should not be put up at the US-Mexican border Round...
