Homosexual marriage and rights should be legalized so that they are equal to that of the heterosexual people. This comes from the stand point of Constitutional basis of equality for all. Take into consideration seperation of Church and State and past cases of similar discriminating actions....

Is homosexuality a choice?

jackFergusen
Yusuf94

Homosexuality cannot be choice because then I would be able to choose to be gay, and I cant. I'm straight and there is nothing I can do to change that. I didn't decide to be straight, I just am. I was never even given a choice....

Should the Electoral College be Disbanded?

8BitPotato
ajisthetruth

The entire concept of the electoral college is preposterous. Not only does it use countless US tax dollars, but also creates an unequal voting system. The premise of our country's foundation is equality for all, a level playing field. The institution of an electoral college undermines that defining principal in staggering the 1:1 voting ratio (one citizen gets one vote) and combats our ability as Americans to select the best candidate for the most powerful political office in our country....

The Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (a.k.a. WHINSEC or The School of the Americas) is a school located in Fort Benning, Georgia that provides military training for soldiers in Latin American countries. The school is under heavy criticism because its former graduates, such as Manuel Noriega, Roberto D'Aubuisson, and Heriberto Lazcano, have committed human violations. I believe that the WHINSEC is still ethical even though the school has trained many evil men....

As a Hispanic myself I see many Hispanics become a receiver for racism. The first Example is the Fact that if you are Hispanic You are instantly though of a Mexican no matter if you are or not. The second issue is that if you are Hispanic the first question you may get is, "Are you legal?" What kind of question is that. The third problem is If your name is Jose you have to change it to Joe to get a job. If you speak Spanish in public then people constantly yell at you, "You're in America speak E...

On balance, a ban on civilian firearm ownership would be beneficial to the United States

UchihaMadara

DK and I have been planning to do this debate for a couple weeks now. Standard debate rules apply; first round for acceptance, no new arguments in the final round, no semantics, no trolling, etc. I doubt any of that will be a problem, here. A quick note on the resolution-- the debate will NOT be revolving around the implementation of a gun ban; it will be about whether or not the effects of a gun ban which has already been implemented are positive. I look forward to an excellent debate :D...
