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.

Nicolas Cage caused the government to shut down so he could steal the Declaration of Independence

Left and right you can find political hacks all blaming the party they dont like for the cause of the shutdown..... Republicans blame the Democratic party because they think the Democratic party are refusing to compromise, and Democrats blame the Republican party because they arent retards. However, the TRUTH is that the government shut down was caused by Nicolas Cage in a plan to steal the Declaration of Independence for whatever reason he may have come up with (Odds are its an invisible tre...

Prostitution should be legal.

Curci
Vitezamotors

Side note: This is my first debate on debate.org. Okay, my opinion is that prostitution should be legal because what people do consensually should not be regulated. If x thinks y is attractive, and goes up to y and offers money for sex, and y accepts, what's the problem?...

The Confederate Flag Is a Symbol of Racism

kbub
paigeb

Hello! I strongly believe that the Confederate Flag is a symbol of racism, but am surprised to find that many people believe differently in this regard. I usually don't like to debate things I think are based on factual rather than philosophical evidence, but I think it is important to make a thorough defense of my case, since there aren't many debates on the subject on DDO. While I will not put any skill requirements on the debate, I would prefer that my opponent make an effort in her/hi...

Gay Marriage Should Be Made Legal Worldwide

LukeKrog
DarkStrike

Okay, before I get into this I would like to state the following ground rules and explanations for this debate. First of all, it is for a school project, so obviously no inappropriate comments or arguments. Also, it is relatively time sensitive and if it could be concluded or at least close to a conclusion by March 24. Most importantly, if you decide to debate against me, be absolutely sure you will be able to finish the debate. I can't have my opponent leaving halfway through. Thanks for accept...

U.S sactions on Russia over Ukraine.

frankienstien
LaughingRiddle

I really wonder how this will play out. Obama lost all credibility on going after Assad in Syria, when he used chemical weapons. I don't blame Obama for not wanting to get involved, however claiming you will when you won't compromises your credibility. Ukraine is at Russia's front door. The U.S should not get in the middle. I think Putin will take it to the end knowing the sanctions won't effect him much and odds are the U.S. is bluffing any way. Maybe it's a foolish pissing match after...
