The US Government should grant universal healthcare to its citizens.

mghee188
MrCarroll

Universal health care should be open to all citizens. The United States has made health care for many residents unaffordable; even through businesses. People who are sick are not focused on getting better anymore, they are focused on whether or not they can pay for treatment. Doctors as well are also focusing on whether or not they will receive payment for this treatment. Knowing that many other areas in the world have universal health care shows it's not impossible for the United States to inqu...

Should marijuana be legalized?

kboudreau
democrat435

The legalization of marijuana has been and always will be a controversial issue in the United States. Many people argue that it is harmful to your health, dangerous and addictive, but isn't that exactly what alcohol and tobacco are and they are legal. We would like to argue that minus the fallacies, there's no real reason why marijuana should be illegal. In the United States you need to be at least twenty-one to purchase alcohol, and nineteen to purchase tobacco. In one year tobacco has caused 4...

Gay Marriage?

Marauder

Whose right is it to say that two people who are in love can not get married because of their sexuality. Is allowing marriage for gay couples really going to impact your life so much that your willing to ruin the lives of other people? There are so many reasons why Gay couples should be allowed to get married, and i'm willing to take on anyone who objects. 1. Marriage is primerely about Love- If two people love eachother and want to make a life long pact to one another, so be it. It is true t...

Wilt Chamberlain is presumably the best NBA basketball player of all time

dhaase
knucklepuk

Wilt Chamberlain is one of the most profound athletes of his generation and of all time. He completely dominated the game like no other. He could score whenever he wanted to, rebound whenever he wanted to, and dunk on a foul shot. Some may say that he was just taller than everyone else, so it was easy for him. However this is false because there have been men who were a lot taller than everyone else in the league, for example Yao Ming and Kenny George who played for UNC-Ashville and was 7 foot 7...

The 1990's Cowboys were a better team than the 2000's Patriots

TD29

The Cowboys won 3 super bowls in 4 years in the early 1990's. They didn't just win these super bowls, they dominated them. They were also undefeated in the super bowls that they played in during the 90's. The same can't be said for the New England Patriots who lost one of there super bowls to the New York Giants. The Cowboys also had a lot of hall of famers on this team including Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irving and Deion Sanders. The Cowboys were a great all around team and it showed i...

Lebron is better than Kobe

dhaase
Kegan

Lebron James is a better basketball player than Kobe Bryant. Kobe Bryant may have won 5 NBA championships, but that is because he was on good teams. If Lebron James and Kobe Bryant were to play 1 on 1, Lebron would win. Lebron, by himself can win his teams games. He did that in the eastern conference finals when he scored 19 straight points in the 4th quarter to win the game, when he wants to take over the game, there is hardly anyone that can stop him because of his physical attributes. Kobe on...

The United States foreign Aid

Clayd
Kegan

I believe the United States should not aid any other countries right now in terms of health and money. The United States is in a financial crisis of it's own, and any money going to the other countries would be tax payers money meant for us. We are 14 trillion dollars in debt, helping other countries at the cost of our own would be foolish. We need to take care of ourselves first, then work on helping other people out. When you are on an airplane and the oxygen masks come down, you secure y...

Abortion

Rayray
Intellectual_Perplexion

Hello, this is my first real debate on this site so I'm a little nervous to see how it goes. I must warn my opponent that I am a Christian and as such will not be afraid to mention the moral aspect of this issue. I am taking the Con side in this debate and I intend to prove to my opponent that abortion is disgraceful human murder and should be stopped! I also want to prove that the baby's right to life goes before the mother's right to choose. From the moment of conception the baby in the womb...
