If a business wants to allow smoking then the so be it, government should stay out!


People do not have to go to a business it is thier choice. though it may be more convienent for people includding my self to eat in a smoke free environment that doesn't make it right. The right sollution is for people to ask the resteruant owner to make it a rule that their is to be no smoking if the smoke is bothering them or find another resteruant. And if there is no other smoke free resteruant near by then people should maybe tell the owner that they will not be eating at their resteraunt a...

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...

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....

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,...

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...

Should Barack Hussein Obama become the next president?


I do not understand why anyone would want Obama to be president. He has no experience and is a lying cheating stealing politician from Chicago....

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....

Patriotism is the best quality one can have.


We have more freedom, more rights, and a better quality of life than anywhere else in the world. We are protected from attacks and we can choose our own destiny. Americanism and patriotism are bedrocks in our society. There is a growing trend right now that to teach kids to be patriotic is to teach rebellion. We are scared to death of the rest of the world and we don;t even want to stand up for ourselves now. Non patriotism is essentionally the same as treason. You have a right to disagree with...

Can Communism really work?


Lucan, while communism is very appealing on paper I fail to see how it could work in reality without the existence of a group of morally perfect people. 1. Greed will undermine the system. While I believe that most people are to a greater or lesser degree good what does a communist government do with those few greedy people who refuse to cooperate? If we force them to cooperate then we abridge their rights. If we do not then the system begins to come apart as we have looters taking from what...
