Could the USA defend itself from the entire world (no nukes scenario)

Remember in this argument, I am in no way trying to prove that the USA is better that the rest of the world. I am simply saying that the USA could defend itself from the entire world. First of all the naval defence of the USA could defend from multiple countries attacking at once. Second of all, if the defences were to be breached, and another country managed to get through to Mexico or Canada, the USA wouldn't sit and wait for the enemy to get to the borders. Even so Tlthe USA could find off a...

This Debate will be over whether Self Defense classes should be a requirement in the Education System. I will be arguing that Self Defense class should be a requirement and my opponent will be arguing why they should not. Self Defense Classes should be required because we continue to hear more and more about school/workplace shooting or stabbings and it seems that nothing is being done. It will take Washington forever to decide what to do and if guns should be legal, however one way to bet...

Medical Research Using Live Animals

Testing on animals has contributed to many life-saving cures and treatments. By using the pancreas of a dog, scientists were able to develop insulin which is a necessity for people with type one and type two diabetes (Animal-testing.procon.org). The polio vaccine was developed by testing on animals. If testing was not done on animals, the polio epidemic of the first half of the 1900s wouldn't have ended and the world would have lost much of that generation and the generations to come. We ha...

Should marijuana be legal in all states?

Lala_14
SuperShyGuy21

Should marijuana be legalized in all states? Yes, of course because 1.It's a plant. We all know this. Therefore marijuana grows naturally, making something that is natural illegal is unnatural. Marijuana is in no way additive, in fact weed can be less addictive then caffeine. Also, you can not overdose on pot. There have been no cases of death from weed. Trust me, If you think your family friend is supposedly "overdosed" on weed, knocked out on your couch. There's nothing wrong with him. He's g...
