Stalin did not betray Lenin's ideals

zommunist
KingOfTheHill

Good day comrade.Some socialists argue that Stalin was a vile tyrant who betrayed the ideals of Lenin. Almost all left wing parties in Britain from Labour to Communist seem to 'disown' Stalin. I, however would like to argue that Stalin was a true follower of Lenin who embodied Leninist ideals.This debate is not (at least not mainly) about whether Stalin is a good or not, or whether socialism and Communism are workable, but they might be...

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...

United States-Mexico Border Fence

WilliamsP
Pokemonzr

In this debate, I will argue that the United States-Mexico Border Fence should not exist.I will state my reasons in a few basic sentences: Nations should be allied, not at political war. We should assist illegal immigrants and grant them an opportunity for citizenship, not deport them. We do not need a border fence. We need diplomacy. A fence is irrelevant and won't positively i...

Con can just do acceptance or the first argument. I don't really mind. Also, I'd prefer it if con was British too, but again, it doesn't matter....

The Republican party is the chief cause of govt. inaction for crucial issues.

shootingstarmie
Hanspete

I argue that the partisanship of the RECENT Republicans is the chief problem behind the largely lethargic and partisan Congress. When I refer to the Republicans, I'm referring to the Tea Party offshoot as well. Put simply, I'm implying that the Republican party has a negative influence on the govt. because of their partisanship and stubbornness, and their insistence to cling to ideas that would hamper the country if implemented. I want a clean debate, with no overtly offensive comments a...

Resolved: Hitler vs Justin Bieber

imabench
YYW

After doing thorough research I have failed to find a single debate that addresses the issue of who is more evil, Hitler or Justin Bieber? This is an issue that millions of people ask themselves every day, and it is apalling that this topic has not been debated here on DDO. After making this discovery I realized that as the head troll of the site it is my sworn duty to bring this legendary debate ready to happen into fruition, and I will be...

Compared to most politicians, Obama is an okay president

MistyBlue
Vere_Mendacium

First round is acceptance.My stance: Obama doesn't deserve all the hate he gets. Policy-wise he's not been GREAT but has definitely done many great things. My opponent must argue that basically he sucks as a president.Rules of the debate:1.) Policy-related material only (speeches etc. are also fair game)2.) Polite conduct at all times3.) Include at least one political carto...
