Compared to most politicians, Obama is an okay president

MistyBlue
Vere_Mendacium

First round is acceptance.My stance: Obama doesn't deserve all the hate he gets. Policy-wise he's not been GREAT but has definitely done many great things. My opponent must argue that basically he sucks as a president.Rules of the debate:1.) Policy-related material only (speeches etc. are also fair game)2.) Polite conduct at all times3.) Include at least one political carto...

Should the United States join the Commonwealth of Nations and have the Queen as head of state?

EmilyMolloy
Tophatdoc

It's time for the United States to join the Commonwealth. Membership in the Commonwealth would facilitate the kind of globalization that is in the American national interest, and it would serve as a hedge against the emergence of a less benign international order based on civilizational power politics. In return, United States membership would offer the Commonwealth a much-needed shot in the arm in terms of resources and ideas that could transform it from a persistent underachiever into a leadin...

The First Amendment says: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the peopl...

There are no compelling arguments against same-sex marriage

Pangloss
BruteApologia

The issue of same-sex marriage is one which divides not only the United States, but much of the Western world.[1] What is most remarkable about this matter is not the lack of agreement, but rather the lack of strong arguments against same-sex marriage. There are simply no compelling arguments (legal, political, or moral) against same-sex marriage. (While there may be religious arguments against it, I would prefer only to address arguments that do not assume a belief in the supernatural and/or th...
