Leave Iraq immediately, and a while ago if possible.

Ragnar_Rahl

Just an FYI, as my profile will tell you, I support the "war in Iraq." So why am I arguing this? Quite simply, because the goals were achieved a long time ago, and every second we stay now makes the situation (for America anyway) worse. The justifications for entering the war were the following: Iraq was a danger due to WMD's (admittedly there is very little evidence of this aside from large containers of chemical materials that are useful for making them), but it was widely believed at the t...

Abortion is just morally wrong.

Heller

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....

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.

Freeman
mongeese

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...

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

rwebberc

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....

Obama's tax plan is idiotic.

shwayze
llamallama

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,...

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

Pricetag
JustCallMeTarzan

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....

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

Mangani
blond_guy

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...

Islam is the reason why the world's a mess.

MMnumber99
Solarman1969

So let me get this straight. It's not that the Bush Administration who invaded an Islamic country, when the reason we were attacked on 9/11 was because we had troops in the Middle-East. It's not that the administration as done as much as they possibly could to ruin good will with most countries that had ANY importance in the world. It's not their fault that they planned the war poorly so Iraq became a hotbed for terrorists. It's not their fault that they gave us false pretences to go to war in a...
