ANY government handout is freeloading.

The_Gatherer

I believe that anyone taking another mans earned income by government force is corrupt in their thinking.Government is not for meeting peoples needs.Government is to enforce contract law and to protect a persons right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, which is different for all of us. That is what freedom to choose is for.And for those who make choices that produce poverty, there are charities for that. They are in a better position to weed out the cons.Government loves the cons.

This debate won't be started for at least another 2 weeks. Between then and now, I'll work on the resolution. Any advice on that part is welcome. The debate should be impossible to accept and I will be nominating judges and doing a choose winner option. Judges are yet to be determined and any suggestions by potential opponents will be considered. I'll be arguing that criminals should have the option of being caned it going to prison, should they receive a jail/prison sentence. Yes, e...

Round 3-- Rebuttals to main arguments by each side. Round 4-- Rebuttals to opponents rebuttals, and closing arguments. This is a frie...

The first argumentation rounds of both parties must be positive material only, no refutations will be allowed in the first argument. 2. The first round is for rules, orders, definiti...

Should forts pave way for five star hotels?

ankursharma123

The topic is should the forts be turned into five star hotels. Well I must say that definitely its a much better choice for turning a fort into a good heritage hotel, so that it doesn't only get renovated, but also people can enjoy the naturality and the experience of living in a old historical fort, which is quite a good feeling. Now India is a great historical country and it has got forts in large number spread in the country. Also Rajasthan is the state famous for forts. Now many of them are...

Economic Understanding should be Acquired Before Exercising Union/Voting Powers

wxyz2000
TrasguTravieso

The topic simply means that people should have a basic understanding of economics and basic proficiency in financial literacy before being able to exercise voting and union powers. I am not going to argue about whether or not such an option is implementable, but only whether or not it should. By "basic proficiency" I mean that people should know how to compound interest, what government debt and deficit is, how a bank works, how a credit card works, etc. Things we will encounter in our daily liv...
