Liberal Empiricism Is Vulnerable to Conservative Perpetual Abuse

Daktoria
Max.Wallace

To be clear, this is a positive, not normative debate. It merely describes what is, not what ought to be. Liberals might encounter anti-intellectual conservative bullies who play dumb in not understanding what liberals are talking about, especially when it's merely a creative idea that hasn't been concretely proven yet. In turn, when liberals aim to concretely prove their ideas, anti-intellectual conservative bullies physically assault them or socially duress them in order to prevent them fro...

our country should be like when it started and follow the constitution and be way more conservative

Our country has pretty much gone to hell. Obama is the worst president this country has seen in it's entire history. He has destroyed our economy, let in thousands of illegals aliens and is actually treating them better than actual citizens, promoting homosexuality and bisexuality and try-sexuality and it is all disgusting and unchristian. He should be impeached and someone should turn this country around. I love this country and i love america but i am disgusted by the way it is ran. Theirs all...

The Republican party is the chief cause of govt. inaction for crucial issues.

I argue that the partisanship of the RECENT Republicans is the chief problem behind the largely lethargic and partisan Congress. When I refer to the Republicans, I'm referring to the Tea Party offshoot as well. Put simply, I'm implying that the Republican party has a negative influence on the govt. because of their partisanship and stubbornness, and their insistence to cling to ideas that would hamper the country if implemented. I want a clean debate, with no overtly offensive comments a...

There is a legitimate, rational reason to ban same sex marriage in the United States

Free_Th1nker
joph

Although more than half the states in the United States prohibit homosexual marriage, I disagree that they have a legitimate, rational reason to do so. Pro will have to propose a legitimate, rational reason to prohibit same sex marriage. *DISCLAIMER* Leviticus 18:22 and all other passages from scripture may not be used as legitimate or rational argument. Tautological arguments will not be accepted as rational or legitimate. The purpose of this debate is to find legal or social arguments that sho...

Should terrorists be tortured for acquiring information?

Politicallion
Truth_seeker

I am entirely in favor of this motion. Terrorists have taken the lives of thousands of innocent civilians for achieving their motive. I believe they must be punished, to an extent where they can see death at their vicinity. Many people who expostulate against torturing criminals claim that it is impractical and ineffective and that the information provided by these terrorists are often falsified, I would like to say that, there is no other option. If you have captured a terrorist and that the te...
