Hunting

crackofdawn
rex-town

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...

TheCategorical
Metz

Affirmation V: Societal welfare VC: Will to Power of societal order Thesis: The will to power is an individual's struggle against their surroundings that culminates in personal growth, and the ability to assert power. Vigilantism is justified through this struggle against the crime that has been committed. In Will to Power Nietzsche writes: "My idea is that every specific body strives to become master over all space and to extend its force (its will to power) and to thrust back all that resi...

You should not be allowed to vote on a debate that you participated in.

James.ticknor
ToastOfDestiny

Observation 1: I have the burdon of clash, my opponent has the burdon of proof. Prove it. Observation 2: In no way will the participate be allowed to vote or influence voters with propaganda, just factual information. I will now begin. Contention 1: Participants being allowed to vote retains the possibility of biased decisions. The entire debate outcome is therefore jeprodized and subject to pointless arguementations; it means nothing if there is no truth in a vote. I do not believe...

chihiro
leet4A1

Nadya Suleman has obviously been USING her children for fame and money that she has (and may be receiving in the near future from Britan?).She has no real job,and has been mooching off of anyone that is gullible enough to take pity on her.She spends money beyond her means on plastic surgery and implanting an absurd amount of embryos inside her.She is,without a doubt, using her money more on herself than her children.I find it unfair that someone so self absorbed should be allowed to use her chil...
