Quebec should pursue independence from Canada

BaruchSpinoza
Mercury3

Quebec independence has in recent months increasingly come under scrutiny as a viable political option for the people of Quebec. This is in large part to the recent massive defeat of the main pro-sovereignty party of Quebec, the PQ, as well as polls showing that the movement is increasingly being abandoned by younger Quebecois. The question can be raised as to whether this movement is viable as a political option. I hope to explore with my opponent the pros and cons of this move...

looking at someone for more than 10 seconds should be considered rape

JohnMaynardKeynes

looking at someone for more than, at the most, 10 seconds should be considered rape. The reason is because it is discusting to look for any longer. People in fact have no reason to look at eachother at all. remaining eye contact is even worse than looking upon someone. looking into peoples eyes should be illeagal, and infact is in most intelligent countries....

'Leaving the European Union and voting UKIP is not the way forward'.

mward95
Jevinigh

I don't mean to patronise any supporters, but if you vote UKIP you are ignorant. They are exploiting those who feel detached from the political system by spreading sensationalist lies. Their core voter, the less educated or the elderly wanting to reverse the last 50 years of globalisation, are unfortunately unable to question this UKIP dogma. What has truly caused more damage to the economy of this country; the bankers who brought us into the economic crisis, the tax dodging upper class, West...
