Should America Ban Political Parties

DarkArtsProdigy
AbandonedSpring

For years after George Washington left office, the political parties have split up this country. The Civil War was caused by political parties, and it's the political parties who declare war. Due to political parties, the winner of the elections isn't caused by the voters but the money a party puts into the candidate....

YaHey

I, Pro, concede and imply that "under God" should not be taken out of the American pledge of Allegiance. It is truly a matter of if you believe God is our Creator or not, but our founding Fathers did and this is something to be respected.

It should not make atheists mad if those words are in the Pledge or on money becaus...

Same-Sex Marriage Should Be Legal in the United States

Freeman
Contradiction

I want to begin by saying how delighted I am to be debating Contradiction on this very important social issue. It's good to be able to argue with someone who is so philosophically inclined. For my part of the debate, I'll be arguing that same-sex marriage should be legal in the United States. Accordingly, in this debate I'm going to defend two basic contentions. First, there are no legally tenable reasons to ban same-sex marriage. And secondly, there are good reasons to think th...

First user to forfeit gets a DQ. If one user cannot debate the other, then this must be discussed between the two for an...

StarHunter
AbandonedSpring

Simple Rules: R1 is opening statements, R2 is for proof and rebuttals, and R3 is for closing arguments. Pro gets the first word, Con gets the last word. BEGIN! Violence is a lack of self-control that results in a desire to hurt or destroy. It is usually direct outward of the person experiencing the stress and frustration that is at the root of the violent behavior. But it can be self-directed also. It commonly results from a person's loss of rational thought when placed under stress. The over...
