George Zimmerman acted in self defense against Trayvon Martin.

Junja

I'm hoping to find an opponent who will discuss this topic without bias. This topic is clouded with bias and emotions from both sides because of bad media coverage and sensitive issues. I'm looking for someone who will defend his views with reasonable evidence instead of fallacies and opinions. I'm not concerned about heavy amounts of formality. I want a discussion that gets to the point and isn't scared to get a little interesting, so long as both sides are reasonable and calm. First off...

Bradley Manning. Traitor.

chrumbelievable

I saw your question about Bradley Manning and I would very much like to have a debate with you. This would be strictly me vs you. The debate would be on wether or not Bradley Manning is a traitor to his county's or if he's some kind of hero of whatever you people call him. I of course will be taking the stance of him being a traitor to the nation. 5 rounds, 1st round is acceptance, final round is conclusion, you nay use any argument you see fit for your case, avoid personal insults and all the o...

Same-Sex Marriage Should Be Legal in the United States

Freeman
Contradiction

I want to begin by saying how delighted I am to be debating Contradiction on this very important social issue. It's good to be able to argue with someone who is so philosophically inclined. For my part of the debate, I'll be arguing that same-sex marriage should be legal in the United States. Accordingly, in this debate I'm going to defend two basic contentions. First, there are no legally tenable reasons to ban same-sex marriage. And secondly, there are good reasons to think th...

Should America have the death penalty?

Shaikhlymsc2014
14rizzon

America should not have the death penalty because the death penalty system in the US is applied in an unfair and unjust manner against people,largely dependent on how much money they have, the skill of their attorneys, race of the victim and where the crime took place. People of color are far more likely to be executed than white people, especially if the victim is white.The death penalty is a waste of taxpayer funds and has no public safety benefit. The vast majority of law enforcement professi...

World Domination

RowanM

So i wish to know how you think of World Domination. I have thought about all of the negative effects of one man in power. But what about this: A leadership ruled by one leader who is elected without secret scams, secret police, threats, and with the honest, unthreatened opinions. That leader serves for life and cannot just start killing the people for enjoyment. No more wars, conflicts resolved in debates instead of violence, and everyone working together for a better human race.The peoples vie...
