Quebec Separatism

comport
Buyhers86

I feel that as a self-proclaimed minority, Quebec is taking advantage of the rest of the Canadian provinces, they use our federal government's money, they are given all the same health benefits, and they are in most cases admired by English-speaking Canadians. Maritimers often journey out to the great city of Montreal, to vacation and embrace the French culture. Meanwhile the Francophone are loathing the Anglophones, and wishing they could be rid of us, and rely on themselves rather then the Can...

Georgia

With many people in today's society going online and making friends it is not threatening our privacy as we have the choice to add friends, show our face book, myspace pictures and profile. With even pages to report people. Also we are warned about this on tv at school and we only go online to chat to friends and meet friends friends....

Black women in America don't try to look white. American white women try to look black.

aliasam1337
FieryPassion

Con has to prove that black women cosmetically do try to look white women. Con also has to prove that white women cosmetically DON'T try to look like black women. Cosmetically meaning physically. This isn't a debate on how anyone acts, only on how they look. Both Pro and Con are not implying that all black women or all white women act the same way. This should be an interesting and possibly humorous debate. Good luck to the Con. First round is acceptance, second is argument, third is rebuttal...

I have no particular parameters for this debate, so I will continue on to iterate my points for the debate at hand.Contention 1: Gay Days help remove stigmatization of gay community. T...

We do not need the State to help us live our lives.

Crevaux
Awesome-Sauce

Since this is a pretty long subject, I don't want to spend too much time talking about the structure of the debate and I would like to start it right away. As a summary, I begin by posting my first argument and my opponent will answer right away. To define the State, I am talking about the legalized monopoly that is currently and conventionally divided into three branches: the executive, the legislative, and the judiciary. The State is the land monopoly that controls more or less the individu...
