Americans, in general, are idiots

I_am_Spartacus

Hello! Standard debate format for response: Greeting and/or Opening Rebuttal Rebuttal Closing First of all the positing that an alarmingly and - relative to other developed countries - big segment of Americans are morons is, sadly, quite easy to demonstrate. Poll after poll shows that Americans are dumb and uneducated, to the point of where one seriously starts to ponder how America got to be "number one" in the first place.

Firstly, I'd like for this debate to be mature. I'd prefer to have just an exchange in views, nothing hateful; nothing racist. Secondly, the debate should be in some sense academic; that is, have at least some understanding of race, racism, it's history and how it functions in society as well as an understanding of people from a variety of backgrounds. Format of the debate: Round 1: Acceptance and any other pleasant exchange. Round 2: Presentation of Arguments. Round 3: Rebuttals Roun...

maewtt

Schools should not have the right to punish off campus cyber bullying. Think about it like this. If two kids get into a fight at a park does the school have the right to suspend them? NO!

Why the death penalty is ineffective and should be banned by the house

Samuel60
DonRCavalier

In this debate I will be arguing that the death penalty is ineffective and due to its ineffectiveness it should be banned by the house. The reasons that I will use will be that it's expensive, it causes racial disputes, it endangers innocent lives, and finally it doesn't deter crime rates. This is how I will put it down: 1.Introduction of the debate (first round) 2.Opponent's statement that he/she will agree to debate. 3.Arguments from both 4.Rebuttal/or counter argument 5.Conclusion...
