Trident: does Britain need it?


I personally think that the trident should not be accepted anywhere, as if its used it could destroy a whole nation and will affect a large majority of people living in the country. Overall making the country invest more money in rebuilding which could have massive impacts with the economy making the nation suffer, and lets not forget the nuclear waste that also left behind it could take years cleaning the mess and the nuclear waste could leak into water stream's affecting water supplies and als...

On balance, a ban on civilian firearm ownership would be beneficial to the United States


DK and I have been planning to do this debate for a couple weeks now. Standard debate rules apply; first round for acceptance, no new arguments in the final round, no semantics, no trolling, etc. I doubt any of that will be a problem, here. A quick note on the resolution-- the debate will NOT be revolving around the implementation of a gun ban; it will be about whether or not the effects of a gun ban which has already been implemented are positive. I look forward to an excellent debate :D...

Shouldn't presidents be president as long as long as people vote for them?


Barack Obama should be president longer. Mr.Barack should not have a limit on how long he should be president. If people still want him to be president then he should be president. I know people will vote for him. He said it himself If he could run again he would be elected. I totally agree with that. Personally i don't anyone that wouldn't vote for him. Even though some of his choices weren't the best he is still a great president. The Barack family shouldn't be going anywhere. I love them....

Freedom of Speech


If we have freedom of speech then why are we being held againest it? Why can't we speak what we want to speak without getting in trouble? John gave us freedom of speech and freedom of press so we could speak freely without getting trouble. But now-an-days we are deprived of our rights to freedom of speech. It's not fair that we can't speak our mind anymore. Yea I understand why we have rules and crap like that, but like I said it's depriving us the chance of getting heard....

Should the U.S. use government funding and university contracts for technological advancement?


This is my first debate, so i figured i would make it an interesting one. Several decades ago, we had a boom in technological advancement. Huge breakthroughs such as ARPANET, Artificial Intelligence, GPS, and many other technologies we used today were backed by these types of funding. I don't want to debate whether or not the government successfully uses or implements these technologies well or efficiently, but the fact that they all exist today due to tax dollars producing things we use in ever...

War with ISIS


On November 11, an Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, ISIS, attack in Beirut killed at least 43 people. The following day an ISIS bombing in Baghdad killed 18 and an attack in Paris killed at least 129 people. Hundreds more were wounded in these attacks. ISIS also recently bombed a Russian plane, Metro jet Flight 9268, after it took flight from Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt, killing all 224 people aboard. That is a good enough reason to go to war. The world could stop these terrorists by putting troops o...
