There are no compelling arguments against same-sex marriage

Pangloss

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...

NSA Surveillance

Danielle
YYW

I dislike instigating debates from the Con position, but I wasn't entirely sure how to frame the resolution. My opponent, should he accept, has agreed to debate this issue from either side. I will be standing in opposition to the extent of NSA Surveillance. A brief overview: The NSA has the capability to collect massive amounts of data on traffic over switched phone networks and the internet. Recently they gained the ability to capture and store data en masse, and retain...

SocialistAtheistNutjob

The states rights to nullification of laws, regulations, and executive or congressional acts, except congressional amendments, should be upheld. Reason being, that it guarentees that states have the ultimate freedom within the country. The national government's role when created, was to act as a wall, protecting the states from outside forces, and to make sure the states would not quarrel amongst themselves. Only the amendments were to not be nullified. The national government's reach over the p...
