Progressive Taxation

NGEpical
ethancentric

Progressive taxation should be allowed for these reasons: First off, the rich have it better off, we can look at them like a well developed, rich in infrastructure society, like the U.S. Most of the world depends on the U.S for exports because the U.S is so well established. This is how we should view this debate, the poor depend on the better-off, better-established rich class to survive and prosper, therefore we should tax the rich more than the other classes (progressive tax)...

Death Penalty- (Brief, Quick, Debate)

BrownIsBest
theisticscuffles

Death is truly an unusually severe punishment. Unusual in it's pain, unusual in it's suffering, it's finality, and it's enormity. Because of the nature of the death penalty, it treats those humans who are on death row as non humans toyed with and discarded. No matter what the crime, death should never be the choice. If anything, the worse punishment should be a life sentence. Rather than death, we should im...
