The "War on Terror" is a futile effort and a waste of resources.

SpannerWrench
Dill777

Before I start I want it to be clear that I do not support terrorism. In fact this debate highlights how I think terrorism could be dealt with more effectively. I do not want to discuss patriotism in this debate. I wish to discuss why using U.S resources to fight terrorism is a poor decision. Terrorism is an idea and not a physical force that can be stopped once and for all. By engaging terrorists we not only legitimize them as an opponent, but we waste resources and spread their name to more...

Democrat and liberal policies have hurt the black community

Capitalism
gannon260

It is a well recorded fact an overwhelming majority of the African-American population consider themselves democrats. This begs the question: has the policies pushed by the Democratic Party and those left of the political spectrum actually helped to advance the black community? "Advance" and "helped" are broad terms, so it is up to pro/con to explain the ways certain policies have helped or hurt whether it be socially, economically or otherwise. Rules of the debate are simple: no troll...

Abolish The Private Education System

JudeMatgi
Wylted

Private education is causing a great split in our society between rich and poor. The two-tier system is disabling social mobility and is a major cause of socio-economic inequality. As the political director for the Huffington Post, Mehdi Hasan, says, "It should be a national scandal that private schools educate only 7% of the school population yet former pupils of private schools dominate the upper echelons of British society and public life: the City, the media, the courts, the civil service, t...

Drasai's premise for the illegalization of same-sex marriage

LadyLover123
Drasai

Drasai, you made the following statement: "This issue isn't about love or equality. I agree that most of the arguments against same-sex marriage are flawed, particularly those that reference the "ick" factor. But while the jury might be out on whether same or opposite sex couples make better parents, it is difficult to refute the position that children are generally better off being raised by their own biological parents, and both together as much as possible. If this wasn't the case, family cou...

Use this source ONLY, (http://www.globalfirepower.com/) due to the confusion on the amount of troops, AFVs, etc. that I have had in the past with people. You can suggest another source, however, but I will need to look it over.2. Each country's turn will be a...

Resolved: Just governments ought to require that employers pay a living wage.

ColeTrain
Zaradi

I am against the government implementing a living wage ordinance. Please accept this debate only if you will take it seriously. Further, anyone who wishes to debate must understand that a living wage will replace the minimum wage for full time workers. Due to requests to do so, I will now provide definitions as to what each important word in the resolution means.Just: ...
