Is Michael Jackson Really Innocent?

HeyBabe
SJM

Everyone knows about what happened to Michael Jackson back in 1992. And again in 2003. And again in 2013. And again in 2016? As a Michael Jackson fan, I really wanted to believe he was innocent. And for a while, the evidence was really against him being guilty. That seems to be changing. What do you guys think? Is he really guilty? Should we even be bothering to get into this since he's dead? Should we just respect his memory? I want to know what you guys think....

Do democratic governments work better if only "well-informed" citizens are allowed to vote?

Brieson
SJM

Increasingly more citizens with the right to vote in democratic governments are viewed as I'll informed. Such societies would not allow children or mentally disabled citizens the right to vote because of their capacity to be well-informed. When is it ok to deny citizens the right to vote based on how informed they are? Is it possible to control the public's vote by controlling their sources of information?...

The "No-fly, no buy" bill

TrumpWillBePOTUS

The "no-fly,no-buy" is a bill that was proposed by Democrats as a way to stop terrorists from getting guns. It states that if you are on the no-fly list then you are unable to purchase a gun. The issue with this is that a person can placed onto the no-fly list for no actual reason. Another issue is that it violates due-process. Your constitutional right is being taken away for a crime you have not been found guilty of....

Gun Control - Less Regulation

JordanBelfort
KeyserSoze115

I believe that Gun Control is an infringement on your rights as an American citizen. I believe that the liberal argument that, "since they are newer the rules don't apply" is false. I believe that most of the Anti-Gun Control people are uneducated and try to use as little facts as possible. I believe that Concealed Carriers do stop crimes and although that may not be stated outright as a right of the people, it is a good law and it should not be taken. Finally, I believe that there IS is such a...
