I will be taking Pro of Gun Rights. I really wanted an intelligent and deep discussion about gun rights and gun laws in a previous debate, but my opponent didn't participate in it and never replied to my argument. ---I will consider it a freelance debate; no set rules about the rounds--- I will open with an argument of constitutionality. As most people on DDO may know, the Second Amendment states: "Amendment II A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a fre...

However, it is important that we discuss ideas over identities; embracing identities while discussing ideas. Think with your mind; color your words with your heart. The people here understand that we all need to express these emotions... it's a natural side of humanity. We would never want to prevent anyone f...

National Security Ought to be Valued Over Freedom of the Press

SpiffyTexan
DebayushChakraborty

"No government ought to be without censors, and where press is free, none ever will." It is because I agree with Thomas Jefferson that I must negate the resolution resolved, that National security ought to be valued over freedom of the press. Infringements upon essential freedoms in the pursuit of safety and security betray priorities contrary to the fundamental values of democratic nations, and often fails to result in improved security. My value, or what I'm striving to achieve is Liberty,...

The States are Sovereign. That is why they're called States

Sky55Anchorage
kasmic

This is my first Debate. In order to get a feel for this site I've decided to start my first debate with something that I've studied for years and am deeply intrigued by. On July 4 1776, Thirteen Colonies declared Sovereign Statehood and broke away from their oppressive government. Shortly after winning their war for secession they enacted the Articles of Confederation which, not only reinforced their Individual Sovereignty, prevented the creation of another oppressive Central Government. Ov...
