Secular case to Gay marriage I. What marriage is In this debate, it is essential to answer the following questions: a) What is marriage? b) Why sho...

Abortion should be outlawed

Abortion should be outlawed. It is just disgusting how a women can kill their offspring just because she had "sexy time" wrong. I don't want to hear the argument, "what if she got raped." If she did get raped she should have the baby and the raped pay all losses to the women. Now when she has the baby, alls you have to do is to bring it to a orphanage or a firehouse. How much can that cost you, if you bring it there on the way home from the hospital. Also, 1.2% of abortions are with girls who...

The "Humanitarians" brought not only food to Gaza, but violence and hatred against Israel.

Cogito-ergo-sum

The convoy with the supplies to Gaza had another target besides bringing the food to Gaza's people. They wanted to increase the world's hatred against Israel and make a political statement by refusing to co-operate with Israel's repeating requests. My debate will prove that once again, the world does not realize what's really going on in the middle east, and therefore jumps to conclusions which are extremely inaccurate and based on lies, hatred and even natizm. First of all, as a background,...

Abortion should be illegal in the United States

Lifeisgood
Xer

Medical abortion first became legal in the United States in 1973 under the Roe v. Wade supreme court ruling. In this debate, I wish to show that this ruling should be overturned, as abortion goes against the Constitution. I will prove this using logic and clear facts. I will start by defining my terms. There are many kinds of abortion, but in this debate I will specifically address the type of abortion legalized in Roe v.Wade. That is, abortion before the point of viability. I also wish to in...

Rush Limbaugh was slandered by racist charges.

RoyLatham
Danielle

A campaign by Leftists accusing Limbaugh with charges of racism was a success. They succeeded in getting him kicked out of the investor group that is planning to make a bid for the St. Louis Rams. The important evidence against Limbaugh comprised his alleged comments praising Martin Luther King's assassin, his comment "Slavery built the South. I'm not saying we should bring it back. I'm just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark," and finally that he made...

Regulation harms and defeats capitalism.

wjmelements
Mangani

I affirm: Regulation harms a capitalist system. Regulation limits liberty. Liberty is threatened by regulation. Liberty, among other things, is at stake. Further, regulation worsens depressions and limits one's potential in a capitalist system. The definitions: Regulation-A principle, rule, or law designed to control or govern conduct. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/regulation This does not mean a regulation that limits traditionally immoral behavior (rape, murder, etc.).This certianly me...

I declare that CON shall need to establish the converse: that the taxes collected by the government are a worse harm than corporate gree...
