The United States Government Ought to Pay Reparations to African Americans

GaelinAsh
Hiu

I negate the resolved. I have three contentions supporting this. First, I will define key terms. Legal-Dictionary.com defines reparations as "compensation for injury" and uslegal.com defines African American as "citizens of the United States who have origins in Africa". 1. My first contention is that it will be very hard to determine who will receive these reparations. a. according to theatlantic.com, "there are no living former slaves and their descendants are so mixed with others that it is...

Should women be required to register for Selective Service?

Reigon

Personally I'm a conservative on this topic but seeing as how the majority of women cheered "Equality!" when Defense Secretary Ash Carter opened all combat jobs to women without exceptions, I now support women registering for Selective Service in the name of "Equality!" I hope to have a friendly debate with anyone who's against it! Edit: For anyone who hasn't heard the news yet the House of Representatives approved the bill to require women to register for Selective Service. Edit 2: Rul...

Should Donald Trump become President of the United States of America?

Donald Trump clearly should not be President of the United States of America because of many reasons. First, to define my terms. President of the United States means one of the most, if not the most, influential people on Earth. Basically ruling over almost 400 million peoples lives, for their good, of course. They need to be a good leader, a good diplomat and be able to make tough decisions. Donald Trump is none of these. Good leader? No, Donald Trump has a horrible reputation in the business w...

Same-Sex Marriage

TrumpetTrain
Alain.Ginger

I think same-sex marriage should be legal because, in reality, I don't see how two dudes or girls having a worthless ceremony goes against a Christian's beliefs. Divorce is already legal, but no Conservative argues against it, even though it's a COMPLETE sin that's legal....

Donald Trump's Idea for a Border Wall is a Good Idea

Conspiracyrisk
Yummy72

The BoP for this debate is shared, meaning both sides will have to provide evidence to support their side of the argument. I will be arguing that Donald Trump's border wall is *not* a good idea, while my opponent will argue that it is. Round 1: Acceptance, opening statement Round 2: Opening arguments Round 3: Rebuttals Round 4: Counter-rebuttals, closing statement No kritiks or trolling. Don't accept if you can't be sure you won't forfeit every round. By accepting this debate, you ag...
