LuciferWept
FrostyCold

Hello. This debate will center around if the Right to Vote Should be extended towards those citizens who are currently receiving financial assistance from the public, also called as welfare. I will be taking the position that they should not be allowed to vote. This debate shall not be about the legitimacy of the welfare system (i.e. whether or not welfare works) or proposing improvements upon the current welfare system. This is simply discussing whether or not those citizens who are...

Gangsta_Bob

Gary Johnson and candidates other than the Republican and Democrat parties should be allowed in the presidential (and other office) debates.

Johnson and others deserve to have their voice heard. If a candidate are on the ballot in all 50 states, it is the responsibility of the debate organizers to allow the voice to b...
