I offer the following definitions for clarification of the resolution:   Democracy- the political orientation of those who favor government by the people or by their elected representatives. (If argued in CX, state that felons do not favor the government because they cannot abide by the rules that the government has set forth.)   Felon- Someone who commits a felony; A Felony is a l...

Whenever the teachings of a religion is so wrong, that disobedience to its teachings is in fact doing what was right, like saving life, for example, then we may know that God did not set up that religion, but that it is the product of sinful man. In the Bible we are told about God: "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity…" Hab. 1:13. This shows us that YHWH the one and only true God is so holy that He had nothing to do with corruption, but not so, with the Hin...

Hi, I'm Stephen Yoo and this is my first speech on the proposition side, on the motion that parents should not buy war toys for children. I'd like to start by explaining exactly what a war toy is. From the Swedish Toy Council, "War toys are playthings which are used to solve conflicts, gain power, or win through the use of violence and imagination. Their aim is to destroy and kill." Next, I'd like to go on to my contentions. Contention 1 Toys are for fun, and not for violence. At an ear...

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...

"As we enter the new millennium, the question is not whether we should fully reject or wholeheartedly embrace globalization. Instead the question is whether the disparate benefits and impacts of globalization can be reordered so that our trade agreements and labor law policies no longer serve to primarily benefit corporations at the expense of workers and communities in the U.S. and around the globe." It is because the Employee Free Choice Act can answer the question that Kate Bronfenbrenner...
