Vote moderation standards are an overall benefit to the site

TUF
Wylted

So this has been a heavily discussed Topic in the forums recently, and while I am doing a similar debate with Wylted on voting quality VS quantity, I wanted a debate more specific to the problem a lot of members have raised lately.While this debate may share some of the same elements as my debate with Wylted, it focuses more specifically on the issue of moderation standards. More than a few voices have voiced public dis-interest in the way moderation has affected voting. From my shoes, I have...

Gun Control

TheTraitorToTyranny
Amedexyius

Gun control is a completely unnecessary and near-idiotic idea promoted by the current left wing politicians, both in office domestically, and abroad. In the wake of the shooting of a gay bar in Orlando, it is necessary for members of LGBTQ to take action, and to take the responsibility of defending themselves into their own hands. Already, groups have been formed nationwide dedicated to this idea. Not only should members of the LGBTQ community defend themselves, but the general American public s...

Japanese internment by the U.S. during WW2 was justified

Wylted
Danielle

Danielle please read round one again before accepting. Let me know if anything is unfair to either of us so it can be amended. I hate FDR and I like using this as an example of how horrible of a human being he was, but I have a confession. As bad as his policies were, the policy in question was justified. It was not a result of racism or hysteria, but the most logical course of action given the available information. Democrats, please do a better job defending your s...

TheRussian
arch001

1. When you accept the debate, state your country, and state the numbers of your armed forces (aircraft, men, ships, etc.). Use this source for military numbers ONLY, as it is the most reliable:http://www.globalfirepower.com.........; 2. Each country's turn can range from about 3 days to 60 days long, so all actions must be in accordance with this time period. (DO NOT try to win in one turn! Take into account that your opponent is also a living, thinking being that can adapt to a situation.)...

God's existence

RogueAthiest
tar62800

God is omnipotent. God is also omnipresent. God is omnipresent which means God lacks the ability to leave a room. If God lacks the ability to leave a room then God doesn't have all powers (omnipotent) and if God is not omnipotent then God, isn't God. Let's say for a second that God isn't omnipresent, and God is omnipotent then that'd make sense. Right? No, because if God has every power, God would be able to create an object that cannot be lifted up, then God cannot lift it. Therefore God...
