Should Hillary Clinton be arrested for her secret e-mails?

Niall_McGee27
Mikal

According to the us code any government officials with classified information that is leaked is a felony. This can not be allowed because just because she is a political offical, doesn't mean the law is under her or she has no consequences for her actions. If General Petreus got punished she should get punished....

Should police officers be required to wear body cameras?

ashsturdivant
pserrano18

I believe police officers should in fact be required to wear body cameras. Body cameras will help keep track of what's going on when they pull someone over/are in the process of arresting them and it will more than likely keep them from going overboard with citizens as well as keep citizens from being violent with them. Just think about how many deaths within the past two years ALONE could have been prevented or AT LEAST held the police officers accountable (or found them to actually be innocent...

Ianadams37
TheConservativeSocialist

does bad leadership end with countries and places being destroyed. pol pot he destroyed his country and he killed millions of people. he did so without remorse. leadership needs to have morals and ethics without it no humanity will remain, humanity needs to be the center of all leadership, or else we will have another Adolf Hitler, who was a good speaker and good and convincing but had bad morals. does the world need good leadership before it runs its self into the ground answer yes....

Is the War On Drugs Constitutional?

EccentricSenator314
SierraOne

While I understand that the Drug War isn't in violation of any specific provision of The Constitution, the act of the Government dictating what to put into my body, what vices to engage in (I can drink and smoke cigarettes, but I'll go through legal hell over a joint!!???), violates the spirit and nature of The Constitution. One can argue that the Laws against the drugs are more dangerous than the drugs themselves (Cartels and street gangs only thrive and profit because of the Law against drugs....

The Voting Age in the U.S.A. Should Be Lowered to 14

TheDebaytDood
DoctorFight

The voting age in the U.S. should be lowered to fourteen years of age. The rationale behind this is that the working age in the U.S. is fourteen. Now, if one is working a pay-check job, then the government is charging taxes on that pay-check. And if one is being taxed by the government and they do not have the right to vote, then that is taxation without representation. Taxation without representation is one of the reasons why the U.S. broke away from British rule in the first place, so it is ir...

Is torture justified when used for national security?

Bakano

Torture is a very effective way to get the information needed to make tactile decisions. Why not risk one for many? If the person being tortured is a known terrorist, why should i care about him? Aren't they trying to kill us?...

Sanders2k16
syracuse100

Bernie Sanders is the best candidate at this time in the presidential race. Keep in mind this is not about if he is the most likely to win! Bernie Sanders believes in the fact of human caused climate change and believes in changing our energy over to renewable energy, and in order to lower elisions, he would introduce a small carbon tax, to urge business's to switch to renewable energies. Sanders would also introduce a plan to make public colleges (colleges that receive the majority of funding f...

Are Video Games Responsible for Real World Violence, and Should They Be Regulated Strictly?

stschiffman
Tokano

Since you clearly disagreed with the comment I made on video games (see the link below), I would like to challenge you to a debate on the subject. This debate, should you chose to accept it, will cover two topics; whether or not video games cause real world violence, and whether or not the government should regulate video games much the same way it regulates alcohol and tobacco. Round 1 is for acceptance only. Rounds 2-4 are for arguments and rebuttals. Round 5 is for last rebuttals and...

Death sentences

alexthedebate
DavidMancke

Death sentence should be allowed (in all counties) due to the following factors: A) The Criminal would be sentenced to death/killed. He/She cannot do any more crimes/offenses. B) The number of criminals go down. C)Almost everyone is scared of death which makes less criminals due to their fear of death. D) If he/she is not killed he/she will have around 2% (as of 1999) chance of escaping which will have a chance to do the same crime....
