Resolved: In the United States plea bargaining in exchange for testimony is unjust.


Because plea-bargaining leads to false testimony and bartering, I affirm the resolution. Resolved: In the United States plea-bargaining in exchange for testimony is unjust. I offer the following definitions from Cambridge university press dictionary to clarify the round: Plea Bargain: A plea bargain is an agreement in a criminal case in which a prosecutor and a defendant arrange to settle the case against the defendant. The defendant agrees to plead guilty or no contest and in some cases to al...

George Bush is the worst President of the last 75 years.


George Bush has dramaticly damaged this country internally and externally. The gap between rich and poor has widened, "The top 10 percent, roughly those earning more than $100,000, also reached a level of income share not seen since before the Depression." and "the top 1 percent of Americans - those with incomes that year of more than $348,000 - receiving their largest share of national income since 1928" (International Herald Tribune)He cut taxes while allowing congress to spend at out of co...

Abortion is prima facie morally wrong.


Abortion is not morally reprehensible and should not be illegal, given the actual qualities that a human fetus possesses. Simply put, all people's realization of the world is actualized at the level of their brain. If any entity - human and non-human alike - is sufficiently young in their cognitive development, they will be incapable of experiencing the world at various levels. As a result, a fetus certainly does not have the same capacity to experience the world the way in which a fully-grown a...

Obama's tax plan is idiotic.


I want to especially single out Obama's plan to raise the corporate tax from, which by the way, he hasnt said by how much....go figure. Right now the corporate tax rate in the United States is 35%, the second largest in the world (Japan is #1). Obama wants to raise this corporate tax rate. Do you know why we have unemployment? ITS BECAUSE COMPANIES GO TO MEXICO, CANADA, EUROPE, AND ASIA TO DO BUSINESS. Why would a corporation stay in the United States and get taxed to death when they can go to,...

Despite the recent NIE, the US would be justified in taking military action against Iran


Despite the recent National Intelligence Estimate stating that Iran has ceased its nuclear weapons program as of 2003, President Bush still claims that Iran is still a threat. After the debacle of the Iraq War, you would think that sabre rattling would be the last thing on the White House's mind. Does anyone else out there believe that Iran poses a threat to the US, and if so would we be justified in invading them? I welcome any takers....

The next President of the US SHOULD meet with Raul Castro- if he is elected President of Cuba


Hillary Clinton's nads are as big as McCain's... oooooooohhh... Too bad that macho rhetoric hasn't worked for the past 50+ years. The regime in Cuba is hardly "rogue", and if it IS, it's leaders should be engaged and at least spoken to- after all, "el bebe que no llora no recibe leche" (baby don't cry, baby don't get fed). What is the harm in Obama meeting with Castro, dictating to him his concerns, and receive any feedback in return? Does HC suggest we go another 50years without recognizing...

The World would be better off with Saddam Hussein in power.


Please read this entire debate before voting. My belief is backed up with facts and logic, not a "blame America first" attitude. It truly is not as crazy of an idea as it may seem, just read with an open mind and then vote. Thank you. I see the Iraq War as a huge mistake and I believe, with good reason, that the world would be better off with Saddam Hussein in power....

Abortion is just morally wrong.


For a long time the argument of abortion has been going on. My opinion is that abortion is simply morally wrong. If you think that abortion should be legal, challenge me on this debate....

The US should continue to deny homosexuals from serving openly in the military.


Currently, the United States bans homosexuals from serving in the military. Under its policy known as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," (DADT), one cannot serve in the military, even if he wants to, if he is openly gay. Rather, the US suggests the person should hide from his own identity, and serve in the military as if he were heterosexual. The US should lift DADT and allow gays to serve in the military. If one feels that it is his duty to serve in the armed forces, so be it. Our administration loves...
