I am here to debate why we need less gun control, and why it does not work. If you accept then you have to debate why we need more gun control and why it works. First off, gun control does not stop the criminals from getting a guns. It's the same reason why drugs are outlawed yet it"s so easy to get drugs. We have had the war on drugs, we made them illegal yet America is having a huge drug problem. You can even get drugs in prison. The thing about increasing gun control is it makes it harder for...

I am challenge samaya to this debateThe resolution: A Totalatarian State is more effective than a Democratic StateI will be arguing for the stance of a moderate Totalatarian state where people still elect leaders but it is only one party. This party controls everything but has some exceptions to its power such as rights of the individuals. It is somewhat constrained by things like the U.S constitution. However it can bypass things such as a senate and a ho...

The Resolution: The USFG Should Accept Syrian Refugees. Summary: With the threat of ISIS in the middle east, and the civil war in Syria, a number of refugees have sought nations like the US to call their new home. However, as the threat of refugees being used to hide terrorists finds it's way into the thoughts of Americans following a number of shootings from France and locations within the US, the debate over allowing them in has become a hot topic of discussion.

Hayd

There's a sentiment among some that makes them say things like: "You can't tell me to shut up or call me stupid because of what I said. The 1st Amendment protects free speech." Actually the 1st Amendment just prohibits Congress from passing certain kinds of laws, like ones that take away free speech. "Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech." Doesn't say that state governments can't pass laws that take away free speech. Or that local governments can't. Or that your sc...

None of the Above!

With the dearth of credible candidates in the Republican primaries, how about we vote for none of the Above, and use this as a Call to question the political systems legitimacy? It can also apply to the National election in November. Am I being apathetic, unpatriotic, unfulfilling of my role as a citizen of the State? Solon, the Greek leader tried to get people involved in their country. Surely, this doesn't apply today, as uninformed, uneducated and apathic citizens only care about their own se...
