President of the USA - place of birth

Lightkeeper

Resolution: "The requirement that in order for a person to be President of the USA he or she must be born in the USA is fair, just and reasonable" I am against this resolution. I will let my opponent formulate his argument first....

What is with the fairness act Obama tried passing in 2005?

So, I heard of this plan he's tried to pass, where radio stations all the public things like that would have to be liberal. I'm not a "republican" and i'm definately not a "democrat" i'm undecided i'm just wondering if you disagree or think this is a little too dramatic that he's trying to do a socialist action by controlling radio stations etc. Thankyou....

This argument is going to based off of whether the government should let hunting continue or ban it. I am pro for letting it continue. I will let my opponent point out why he thinks it should not continue and respond to his arguments. I thank my opponent in advance for taking on this controversial topic and wish him good luck....

Smoking Packet Pictures

Perhaps my fellow countrymen and women (UK) if you by chance are a smoker like myself or if you by chance stumble across a new pack of Cigs in your travels, you will see that the government has decided oh so wisely to pass another law against us, and put pictures on the back of packs to remind us of the hellish trouble we will get in if we continue smoking, as if we didn't know already, and are passing another law that cigarettes must be served under the counter to stop i quote "impulsive" buyin...

Cloning

I was recently assigned a persuasion paper for school. My chosen topic is cloning. Before I began my research I knew very little about the topic, only that it was highly controversial. But after only some beginning research I now believe otherwise. Cloning is a process that should be continued. I feel this way because cloning has many health benefits. Such as, cloning can be used to clone failing organs to replace old, or damaged ones. Also, by cloning a child from a single parent hereditary d...

Death Penalty

First of all I would like to make my "map points" as to why I am oppose to the death penalty. 1. The cost One my argue by logic that the cost is much higher for life imprisonment because you would have to feed him everyday etc.... for the rest of their lives right. # A 2003 legislative audit in Kansas found that the estimated cost of a death penalty case was 70% more than the cost of a comparable non-death penalty case. Death penalty case costs were counted through to execution (median co...

Bush Lied People Died? Part II

Watchman81
Seerss

Okay, so I tried this debate once, but didn't get a good opponent. Hopefully this one will work better. Here is my opening argument. In this debate, I am arguing that President Bush did NOT lie in order to justify the United State's invasion of Iraq. Whether or not the United State's invasion of Iraq was justifiable or not is irrelevant to this debate. I am arguing against the popular belief that Bush used deception in order to justify the US' invasion of Iraq. The reason we went to war wa...

Quebec Separatism

comport
Buyhers86

I feel that as a self-proclaimed minority, Quebec is taking advantage of the rest of the Canadian provinces, they use our federal government's money, they are given all the same health benefits, and they are in most cases admired by English-speaking Canadians. Maritimers often journey out to the great city of Montreal, to vacation and embrace the French culture. Meanwhile the Francophone are loathing the Anglophones, and wishing they could be rid of us, and rely on themselves rather then the Can...
