United States-Mexico Border Fence


In this debate, I will argue that the United States-Mexico Border Fence should not exist.I will state my reasons in a few basic sentences: Nations should be allied, not at political war. We should assist illegal immigrants and grant them an opportunity for citizenship, not deport them. We do not need a border fence. We need diplomacy. A fence is irrelevant and won't positively i...

USA should have more gun restrictions


the USA is pretty unique because of how pervasive our support of gun culture is (why nothing at all really passes, even something as simple as more background check restrictions, even after so many mass shootings), and guns themselves. we may not be like other countries that have done so much so successfully (perhaps even to the point that more gun access could reduce violence when 'good guys' have guns? not sure i'd go that far), but it's not to say they haven't had success. australia had a ma...

Legalization of Gay Marriage


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.

So, yes, there are more reasons, reasonable or not, for which a country or government would actually want to start a war. But how d...

Resolved: Homosexual marriage should be legalized in all states within the United States of America


I would like to first state that I, in no way, dislike homosexuals. My feelings for them aren't for or against them as I truly see them as equal. I just have set beliefs about the institution of marriage and would enjoy a nice debate with another individual. I will be arguing Con for this debate. This is my first online debate, and as such I wish to defend the integrity of this debate from what I perceive to be the online equivalent of "Speed Readers" in formal debates. Therefore no less than...
