Should women have the same rights as men?!?

Mr.masterDebator
Castaway

I'm here to say that I think women should have the same right as men do. One reason I think women should have the same right as men is because they are the one's who gave birth to all of us men. Two what makes a man so much more important than men. Three women should get all of the credit other than men because even though man go to work and make money and women do too work. Women stay home and prepare food and clean the house and do laundry. Without women you wouldn't have a good Delicious hot...

Stimulus spending should be done in current economic conditions

SeriousThreat
RonPaulConservative

It is argued that most of the developed world central banks have already "shot" all their power in regards monetary policy and State should take more responsibility in regards fiscal policy to prop up their own nation's economy and world economy as a whole. So the debate is about that should governments make bigger deficits to ignite some "fire" for their economies and return to faster growth world or not? This is Pro's side debut debate, so inexperienced debaters are more welcomed to join...

Should Minimum wage in the United States be raised?

Salvador_Dali135
Capitalistslave

People argue that small businesses can not afford to pay employees more and as a result will end up firing many employees. This is just not true. In July of 2015 a survey found out that 60% of small business owners support a gradual increase to the minimum wage of $12.00. This survey also reports that small business owners preferred this because an increase of income would put money into the pockets of low- wage workers who will then spend the money on goods and services. This boost in demand wi...

Traditional businesses are better than cooperatives

I am redoing this debate and others since several of them never were voted on, and I believe one reason for this was because of the Vote Comment requirement. I am disabling that for this debate and all further debates since I hate the moderators on here. Now, let's begin the debate with definitions of terms: Cooperative: " an autonomous association of people united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly owned and democratically...

political correctness should become widespread in order to avoid hurting another's feelings?

ghostdance11
Dirty-Morgs

Political correctness is essentially control, not etiquette. It is sweeping the world, causing school teachers to use gender inclusive terms and having age old sports teams and companies consider rewriting their logo, name, or design. Although there is a line to be crossed of whether it is rude or not, you shouldn't have to watch everything you say just because it could hurt another person. I have plenty of research and thoughts on this, so I am not going to write it here. You don't have to...

That Democratic Socialism is a good System

bojupiter
BrendanD19

You comment that you are a "proud democratic socialist". Yet, there is really no reason to be proud. Democratic Socialism is based on the belief in a Socialist economic system, and a democratic governmental system. Yet these two systems are diametrically opposed. Democracy is founded on key beleifs of Liberty and freedom, as well as the chance to choose the country's leaders by winning a majority of voters over, or electoral college/seat votes. A true democracy is founded upon the ideology o...
