Assault Weapons Should Not Be Banned

WaffleWaffleton
ImRightAndYoureLeft

It's always been difficult for me to understand how people don't know what assault weapons are, yet want to get rid of them. Allow me to clarify what these weapons REALLY are. 1. In 1954, a company called ArmaLite was founded. To this day weapons based on ArmaLite's design for rifles are in use in the military. These include the M16, as well as the M4; but I cannot stress this enough, the AR-15 is a civilian Model of ArmaLite's weapon design. The AR in AR-15 stands for ArmaLite Rifle, not...

raising federal taxes will be inevitable and be the most responsible thing to do the things that make up by far most of the budget are too hard to cut, and we shouldn't be cutting them too much anyway. social security, medicare, interest on the debt, defense, all make up over ninety percent of our budget. even if you wiped out the rest of the government, which would be the height off irresponsibility, you still couldn't even balance the budget, which is five hundred billion dollars. the budge...

"Assault Rifles" (AR-15's Legality)

NukelarApothecary
ConserativeDemocrat

I believe you have every right to own an AR-15. If someone thinks you shouldn't have that right that the constitution protects, they are simply unamerican, and uneducated. If you don't think anyone should own that gun, then don't own that gun. Nobody is forcing you to own a weapon. I believe personally that it is my right to own guns that I'd like to own. I believe we need to read the constitution a little closer. "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the rig...

Drugs Should be Legalized

vardaanbhat
TeaPartyBijesse

Drugs should most certainly be legalized. Any measures opposing the freedom to use drugs violate individual sovereignty. In other words, by banning drugs, a government violates the rights of individuals to make their own choices and act according to their own judgement. Since all people have the freedom to think and sustain their own lives and values, if they are not violating other people's rights, then they have every right to use drugs. Good luck!...

Communism will beat Capitalism

TheDebaytDood
CraftyMiscreant

As an American Communist, I feel that there is not nearly enough debate on this website concerning the principles of Marxism-Leninism and Communist ideology. In this debate, I will argue that the capitalist system is doomed to fail, and that communism will eventually prevail. My opponent will argue that this is not the case. Let the debate begin! Hail the revolution!...
