Drivers License Checkpoints are Unconstitutional

rational_man
dexterbeagle

Has anyone been driving along with your significant other after seeing a movie or having dinner on a Friday or Saturday night, only to find that they are now caught in a traffic jam? As you get closer and inch along, taking several minutes, you discover police lights up ahead. You get even closer and now you realize you're trapped in a drivers license checkpoint. When asked, you provide your license to the officer, and are allowed to proceed, but only after the officer scans your license, perfor...

Should abortion be abolished?

zhoumsc2015
WardMSC2015

Abortion should not be abolished. Abortion can be a way to save a suffering instead of killing a life in some extent. If the parent can't provide a basic living standard for the child, they shouldn't cruelly force the child to be born and to endure the miserable life. The child does have the right to live, but how could you let the child bear the irresponsible actions of the parents. Having a baby in not only giving birth, but also raising the baby and being responsible for him or her....

Feminists want equality only where women are disadvantaged, and priviledges where they are not.

Yousuf1
SomethingWitty

It is true, feminists fight against inequality which harms women. You will never see feminists fighting against inequality where men are disadvantaged. I will only be discussing the "moderate" feminists here such as President Barrack Obama , Hilary Clinton & Emma Watson etc. President Barrack Obama has ordered that there be "equal" but "easier" military tests for women. How is this equality? And if the fact that them being physically weaker on average entitles them to such a privilege (as i ment...

Abortion

Abortion should be entirely legal, although it should never be paid for by taxpayers. The simple fact that it is the mothers choice to terminate an UNBORN child/fetus, and she can afford to pay for the procedure is good enough reason to keep abortion legal....

Individual privacy is more important than national security

leimsc2015
lagessemsc2015

Individual privacy is more important than national security, because the Constitution protects people's rights of privacy. The First Amendment protects people's privacy of belief; the Third Amendment protects the privacy of house against the need of housing for soldiers; the Fourth Amendment protects the privacy of personal possessions and is against to unreasonable searches; the Fifth Amendment protects the privacy of personal information. Privacy is essential in every person's life....

200th Debate: Drunk Driving Should Be Legal

Wylted

This debate should be impossible to accept. If you find some way to accept it anyway, you get an automatic win, for being so clever. My opponent for this debate will only partially be accepted according to ability, other factors will be considered. For example, if a close relative of yours died because of a drunk driver and you are reasonably competant at debating, you'll be considered more highly than a high ELO debater. This debate will start in 10 days. Any suggestions or critique of the deba...

Marijuana should be completely legalized

JuanSmolkin
Jcmiamiu7

I will be Pro. Marijuana should be legalized without any restrictions other than the ones placed on tobacco or alcohol. The reasons are: A) By criminalizing Marijuana, people who are not a danger to society are incarcerated, taking their freedom from them as well as costing the state (and therefore the tax payers) money. B) Marijuana has tremendous health benefits, on a variety of different conditions including but not limited to: Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, migraines, insomnia, la...
