Mopi

Welcome, Mopi! I chanced upon one of your previous debates and I felt that your opponent missed out on several points of importance.

I think teens should be able to express themselves through the way they dress at school. Everyone is different, everyone expresses themselves differently and everyone thinks differently. Teens should not have to wear uniforms or follow a strict dress code. Teens should wear what they want to school, as long as it is not very explicit....

UchihaMadara
TN05

1. First round for acceptance 2. No new arguments in the final round 3. The debate should be impossible to accept. Finding a way to accept without permission will result in an automatic loss for Con. If you would like to accept, please say so in the comments section, and I will challenge you in a week or so. 4. By accepting the debate, Con agrees to define the Cold War as "the period of political tension between the United States and the Soviet Union lasting from the end of World War II...

Possibility of terrorism - If any Mexican citizen what keeps away the ISIS agents and the Al Qaeda terrori...
