The fact that there is an entertainment of the idea of allowing prisoners to vote. I understand that they are people but in all fairness when you are in the "joint" you obviously dont care enough about society to follow the law so they shouldnt be able to vote on them....

RoyLatham
jopo

For the purposes of this debate "torture" is defined as those methods of interrogation revealed as being used by the CIA on GITMO detainees. These methods include physical and psychological stress, the most severe being water boarding. The methods are non-lethal.

Sex in Public Should Be Legalised

masterdrave
cathaystewie

Firstly, I would like to say that I am not judging whomever chooses to debate this topic. This is an unprejudiced and open discussion. Thank you and good luck! It is simple. Sex is beautiful.

My stance on the Death Penalty: While I support rehabilitation in as many cases as possible, there are some cases where the Death Penalty is the best option. I only believe that the DP (Death Penalty) will be of absolutly no value when we have the option of completely (with 100% certainty) brainwashing criminals to esentually make them into "new" people. Now, in order for this debate to really...

Should the government control what we eat at schools?

SwedishLinx
ThatLezChick

The government should not control what us as the youth of America and what we eat at schools. Michelle Abeam has taken things such as cookies, Gatorade, fruit snacks and chips from our schools. We shouldn't have the government telling us what we can and can not eat. We should be able to eat what we want and be in charge of how we take care of our bodies. We should be making our own decisions....
