Guantanamo Bay should be closed down

Messi-09
Zman_82nd

Guantanamo Bay is a notorious US military detention camp that is the site of many atrocities, and as a result should be closed down immediately. Established in 2002 as part of the War on Terror and the aftermath of 9/11, this detention centre has been used to interrogate people who are suspected to have been involved in terrorism, particularly in the Middle East. However a better word for interrogation might be "torture." When Obama was elected President, one of his core promises was that Gua...

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....

Should the U.S. get involved with Mexico's war on drugs?

justiceandtruth

The U.S shouldn't get involved because it is none of the U.S.'s business. Mexico is a different country and it's not part of the United States of America. What Mexico does is their business not the U.S because if the U.S gets involved then Mexico will start a war with the U.S. and I don't think Obama wants to send more U.S troops to fight against another country...

Abortion should be legal

SitaraMusica

I've wanted to debate this topic for a while now, and my opponent has shown some interest in it on the forums, so I thought this would be a good debate. Since the resolution is very straightforward I don't think an acceptance round is needed. Con may use their text space however they want to. Opening arguments: 1) Uncertainty about the beginning of life The scientific answer to the question of whether life begins at conception, at birth, or at some other point during a pregnancy is not...

We should keep out illegal immagrants and secure our border

august55433
Artemis4

I believe that illegal immigrants should be kept out of our country. They hurt our economy and are an overall bad thing for us. I know that they are just trying to get a better life, but what makes them better then the people that are doing the same thing, except that they are waiting in line? The illegal immigrants just cheat and budge ahead of everyone. They don't pay taxes, and they get to be on our welfare system. This overpowers the balance between people who pay taxes, and people who don't...

Is the WHINSEC(US Army School of the Americas) ethical?

mcdorr72
Raistlin

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....
