The Whole World Should Vote On The US President

mintchocs
fo-shizzle0855

Only US citizens should vote as they are the ones that are fundamentally subjected to government treatment - all the decisions made by the US president have a direct effect on the American people; the government is supposed to "govern" its people (ie. it should have a direct tie with the people and reflect the general peoples' decisions, as ultimately it serves to "serve" the people). US citizens should be the priority of the US government and president, they should have the sole right and power...

It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of more innocent people.

Danger_Chams-Eddine
vitalsign789

I stand for the affirmative in the case of "It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of more innocent people". I stand for the resolution and feel that it is morally permissible when only the person being killed, which in a different term to have their life put to an end, has agreed to being used in such a manner to save other lives. The scenario the resolution implies will not work for all situations and should not be used for all situations. Societies should not...

For many, many, many, again, many years, the conflict between Palestine and Israel has been known to the World as a religious conflict. However, if the US were to encourage a One World Religion, it more than likely cause turmoil beyond belief. According to the UN, the percentages of the major religions with in the world are as follows: Religion Population % Atheists 2.4% Buddhists 5.9% Christian 33.0% Hindus 13.3% Jewish 0.2% Muslims 20.1% Non-religious 12.0% Other 12.6% Sikhs N...

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...

Private Firearms are Necessary for the People to Possess and Use

constitution1110
feverish

For the purpose of this debate, I wish to defend the position that privately-owned firearms are a hugely beneficial tool for the private population to possess for this reason: Private firearm ownership reduces crime I do not include the 2nd Amendment as part of my argument as the question I wish to ask is not "Is gun control Constitutional?" or "What is the meaning of the Second Amendment?", but rather "If the Constitution never existed to protect private firearm ownership, would there st...
