The electoral college system is more fair and effective than the popular vote system.

I would like to debate someone on the effectiveness of the electoral system over the popular system. The electoral college assigns values to states depending on population size, and all of the points for a state are awarded to a candidate when that candidate receives majority vote in that SPECIFIC state. The popular vote is a simple majority vote of the entire nation. I have started this debate because of the rising controversy from Hillary winning the popular vote, but not the electoral vote. T...

Is the Electoral College a Good Way to Have an Election?

byaka2013

The Electoral College means that your vote doesn't matter and the 1% buys the vote. States are unfairly represented and swing states really only matter. Popular vote has been divergent of electoral 5 times now, so when will it end? We need a fair system, not this disaster.

The Job Guarantee Is A Good Idea.

The Job Guarantee would guarantee everyone was offered a job. The government could do this by funding the expansion of the public sector, creating the jobs to do, expanding not for profit employment etc. I currently believe this would be better than things like Job-share, natural private market job creation and the current public system of helping people get work. It might also be cheaper than some other approaches. I am arguing that this should be included in the government's response to un...

The World Would Be Much Better Without Religion

David12N
byaka2013

I am generally interested in the answer. I have decided to choose Con because I think the world would not be much different than now. I would argue that many of the common reasons cited against religion may not be accurate. I do think there is often strong views held on both sides that do not move the debate forward. I am not arguing that religion never does wrong but that the negative impact on the world may be overly exaggerated and some of the good downplayed or ignored. If you can cite actua...

Should Guns be Banned?

Hello! I am looking forward to a good debate with you. This is intended to be a fairly short debate. I hold that guns are an important right of the people. First round is acceptance only. Second round is only for arguments, and the last two rounds are for arguments and rebuttals. Good luck, opponent! My last two opponents on this debate forfeited. If you accept this debate challenge, you need to stay dedicated....
