Zimbabwe should return to Rhodesia's form of government

Theguywhoknowsnothing
brendanww2

Now that I have more free time to debate, I decided to make this debate. Zimbabwe should return to Rhodesia's form of government again, but without the oppression of african people. Why? When it was Rhodesia, it used to be one of the most (if not the most) prosperous country in Africa and a democratic nation, it used to have one of the largest life expectancies in Africa and a fast growing economy[1] After Mugabe came to power, Zimbabwe GDP per capita started to fall like a heavy...

Should the United States join the Commonwealth of Nations and have the Queen as head of state?

EmilyMolloy
Tophatdoc

It's time for the United States to join the Commonwealth. Membership in the Commonwealth would facilitate the kind of globalization that is in the American national interest, and it would serve as a hedge against the emergence of a less benign international order based on civilizational power politics. In return, United States membership would offer the Commonwealth a much-needed shot in the arm in terms of resources and ideas that could transform it from a persistent underachiever into a leadin...

Gay Marriage

Gay marriage should be legal is all 50 states. I believe this because there are many people such as my uncle, my great uncle, my aunt, and many other family friends who are gay that have had a big impact on my life that had to go to a different state to get married which I think is just wrong....

Pro-Life Results in Punishment for Women

Double_R
Geogeer

Since Con and I can not come to an agreement, we decided to let the DDO users decide. Pro-Life: The position that abortion should be illegal. Women: Any woman who is pregnant and wishes to have an abortion. I will leave "punishment" as part of the debate to be reasonably interpreted. Standard debate rules apply....

Governments should support research into the cure for male homosexuality

brian_eggleston
black_squirrel

Any normal man would consider being sexually penetrated by another man a fate worse than death but there are some men who, tragically, have to endure this horrific ordeal on a regular basis. These men suffer from what the medical profession call "homosexuality". Sadly, there is no cure for homosexuality and, worse still, there is no major research funding in place to find a remedy for this distressing and humiliating condition. [1] Large sections of society misunderstands this terrible ail...

Legalization of Gay Marriage

Magicr
InVinoVeritas

Resolved: The reasons to make same-sex marriage legal in the United States outweigh the reasons not to do so.(Note: This does not neccessarily refer to a specific jurisdiction within the United States, but rather any jurisdiction within the United States.)I have made this debate unacceptable for now, as I would like to ensure a good opponent. I have tried this debate a couple of times before and have had forfeits both times.

The 2003 liberation of Iraq was the right thing to do.

sam.conran
Dan4reason

This first round is for clarification and for acceptance only. I will be arguing that the liberation of Iraq was the right thing to do and my opponent will be defending the popular opinion that it was wrong. Thank you to my opponent in advance and good luck :) Hopefully we can have a good debate! In response to a comment, the argument is simply whether or not the removal of Saddam Hussein from power was morally justifiable or not....
