Gay Marriage.

Tes95

(Using my same standpoints as all are valid and relevant.) Separation of Church and State works both ways, therefore on legal grounds? This issue should be locked away indefinitely. Gays bring up the "fact" that it is a "Civil Rights" issue. First off, marriage was created by straights. As a patent owner, do you not have rights to said patent? As the creators of marriage, do we not have the right to reserve it? Do you have any idea how many issues this causes? So if I had a birthday party...

"no planes on 9/11" thoery

TOMlive
Eris

Hello people my name is Tom. I am involved with a local portland truth group dedicated to exposing the truth about 9/11. I would prefer my opponent to already know at least some of the truth about what happened on 9/11. If you still believe people in a cave did this then please don't bother and go do some research for yourself. The reason why i am debating this is because it creates much controversy within the truth groups. I am here to explain how the world was duped into thinking that planes a...

Resolved: Nazism is not a far-left ideology

royalpaladin
Branden

First round is acceptance only. In order to win this round, the Con must prove that Nazism is far-left based on two factors: economic factors and social factors. If the Con fails to fulfill this burden, default Pro. In addition, I only need to disprove one out of the two in order to win the round. If Nazism turns out to be anywhere on the scale from leftist (but not far-left) to far-right, I win the round.The conservative voting block, which consists of the following individuals...

The Obama Care bill should NOT have been passed

BeautifulDisaster

I would like to say a few words here before starting my opening argument. I respectfully request that only an American Citizen please join this debate on the 'con' side. I have nothing against view points from other countries on health care, but with a bill where American tax dollars are being used, I find it to be a more honest debate between two citizens directly effected. If I could have, I would have voted No to this bill and look forward to debating with someone who would have voted yes. (...

Taxation is the confiscation of individual life and liberty and should therefore be minimized.

HandsOff
beemOr

Life is represented by time on earth. Money is a representation of the time spent earning it. Liberty, in a popular sense, is one's ability to do with his life (i.e. time and money) what he sees fit, as long as he does not infringe on the rights of others. It follows that confiscating one's money is no different than confiscating his life and liberty. I do not make this point as an argument against taxation. I believe minimal taxation is necessary to provide for the defense of basic freedoms...

Abortion Should be Illegalized

Dragonblade
saphirescar

Abortion is the process by which a baby is terminated while still in its mother's uterus. I consider this to be a form of murder, because you are killing a baby while it is helpless in the womb. Usually, by the time a mother finds out that she is pregnant, the baby already has a beating heart, fingers, a torso and legs, and is about the size of a quarter. It essentially has all the body parts of a human being. So, that proves that you aren't killing a blob of cells, you're killing a baby. You al...

Communism > Capitalism

Kefka
Vi_Veri

Communism vs Capitalism So, in this world I've set up for the purposes of the debate, both theories exist, but neither has been exploited. We are a group of people trying to decide the fate of our society, and we have two theories to consider: capitalism and communism. I am the half that is arguing for communism, Vi is arguing for capitalism. All we have are the ideas and writings of those like Adam Smith and Karl Marx. Communism in essence, is far superior to Capitalism. It embodies a sy...
