I believe that logic should trump over feelings.

TheJamaicanAmerican
Chill_Will

In terms of government reform and policy change, there really should be no place for any personal feelings to come into the decision process of such change. Such as gun control, abortion or any foreign policy....

Gun Control.

Think about this. You are sitting in school, and the bell rings. You grab your backpack, and start to go to the gym to get to your bus. The door busts open, and you hear people screaming. It's a person with a gun. They purchased it legally. Now, with the intent to harm anyone and everyone, they start shooting. Now, I apologize if that had harmed anyone. Anyways, I'm not saying, "OH BAN ALL GUNS" I'm saying, ban the AK-15s and other machine guns. Ban bump-stock. Ban the ability to buy a gu...

Gun Control

If guns are made illegal, they can still make their way to people's hands. Even though drugs are illegal, there are millions of people who are addicted. If guns are all gone, there would be more shootings because people with illegal guns know that no one else is going to have a gun so they can kill more people. Allowing guns allows people who have a sense of security. If shooters know that there are people carrying guns around him. They won't shoot because they can be stopped in an instant....

Men are the ones being oppressed by women.

KJnonviolentresistance

Feminists have claimed that women are being oppressed by men, but when I do the research I find the complete opposite. -Women get custody unless the man can prove the living conditions are unsuitable. -Men gain longer prison sentences than women for the same crime. -Men are forced to sign up for the draft. -Men are as well told to not show emotion causing emotional build up most likely the cause for the high suicide rate among men....

EliNicks1981
Abelard

Did you know that 48 percent of U.S. adults say that they drink at least one glass of soda per day? However, among the average soda drinkers, drink about three glasses of soda per day. Should these enjoyable fizzy drinks be taxed to the American people? Some agree that it would benefit health by preventing obesity between both children and adults. Others say that without taxes, it would benefit the taxpayers by making these tasty beverages more accessible to them and that the government gets t...

Is the United States a bad country?

Gresak
SteelPelican

The United States is a cesspool of everything wrong with society. We are by far one of the most racist countries. We have hurt almost every other for economic gain and we have done nothing in the history of the U.S. to fix it. We spend the most money on health care than in any country yet receive the least benefit. We are a nation ruled by the wealthy that will do anything in their almost limitless power to turn a profit. Name a single good deed that the U.S. has done and I can list the worst of...
