Scottish Independence

SNP_02
Atheist-Independent

I strongly believe in Independence for Scotland within the EU. The Yes Campaign fought a great campaign for a better Scotland, but we were fooled by the lies of the Westmonster Establishment. Although after a referendum, the dream is NOT dead. Before the referendum SNP membership was ~20,000. Now, 3 months after, it's almost 100,000. Already Westmonster are backtracking on their promises clearly shown in 'The Vow' in which David Cameron MP, Nick Clegg MP, and Ed Miliband MP all signed. These 3...

Resolved: Hitler vs Justin Bieber

imabench
YYW

After doing thorough research I have failed to find a single debate that addresses the issue of who is more evil, Hitler or Justin Bieber? This is an issue that millions of people ask themselves every day, and it is apalling that this topic has not been debated here on DDO. After making this discovery I realized that as the head troll of the site it is my sworn duty to bring this legendary debate ready to happen into fruition, and I will be...

This debate will be between me and my good friend, GOP. The first round will NOT be for acceptance (seeing as I am instigating the challenge). To make the amount of argumentation even, GOP (Pro) will not rebut in round 5.To GOP: Let me know if you want to change any of the settings/the wording of the res. Accept this when you're ready. :) ...

A non natural born citizen should run for president, with the requirements to be eligible to run.

xghostwriterxx
Voiceless

This topic is not talking about partnerships, trade, or any of those connections we have with other countries. This is about passion. America is a land of the free, home of the brave- but how are we brave, when we can't stand for what's right? The only reason I haven't stood against the government, is only because of my line of heritage. It's not only me, it's many others too, whom come from different nationalities. If we keep this patriotic land, and open it up to be more diverse, I don't see h...

The US Should Have Better Gun Control

Samos
utahjoker

I believe that the lack of gun control in the Unites States is a serious danger to the public, in nations with full gun control the homicide rate, armed robbery rate, and suicide rates are much lower. First Round is for acceptance Second Round is for initial arguments & rebuttals Third Round is for further arguments & rebuttals Fourth Round is final rebuttals & concluding statements only, no new arguments...

There is no rational basis for banning gay marriage.

Nymphomaniac
bluesteel

This is a short debate about gay marriage in the United States. I believe bans on gay marriage cannot be defended, even under rational basis review. When courts apply rational basis review, the question asked is whether the law at issue is rationally related to a legitimate government interest. This is the lowest level of judicial scrutiny. Thus, the issue up for debate is whether bans on gay marriage are rationally related to a legitimate government interest. This should give those against gay...

Is conflict important:Hands up, don't shoot, I can't breathe: Is it really important?

Hands up, don't shoot case is really not necessary for walking the world, but if you want to do that, that's fine. Just know, lots of people will get hurt. I am going to stop that before it slurs up another case, and another set of drama....
