Gun ban

crushboy79
ThatChristianGuy

The gun ban will only bring more deaths upon America than no gun ban. It is also a constitutional right and that alone shows why we should't have gun ban. The statistics prove it and just because it works with other countries does not mean it will work. The killers will not turn in their guns, they are outlaws...

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...

Thomas Jefferson was a hypocrite for owning slaves.

Mr.Grace
abdully

Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, owned slaves. That is an unfortunate, historical fact. And this fact has led many, throughout history, to label Jefferson as a "hypocrite." I disagree. Jefferson was as much trapped by the culture he lived in, as were the slaves he "owned." Indeed, Jefferson's words paved the way for individual freedom and the eventual freedom of the slaves. Calling him a hypocrite is not only unfair, it is factually wrong....

Before I go more in depth about the cons of genetically modified crops, let me first give a definition of what genetically modified crops are. Genetically modified crops (often abbreviated as GMOs) are simply crops, whose genetical material has been modified. There are two ways to do this: Traditional selection and breeding (much like breeding animals), Modern, scientific modification of the crops. In this article, my strengths and weaknesses of genetically modified crops list will deal...

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...

all states should have opted into medicaid expansion

dairygirl4u2c
Francisco_DAnconia

all states should have opted into medicaid expansion it basically amounts to politics alone being the reason people are dying. obamacare included a medicaid expansion for people with low income. (people with more than little income are part of the normal obamacare insurance exchange program, that may or may not include subsidies. the main reason the states should have opted into the expansion, is because so many people will die if they don't. an estimated 17,000 people will die becau...

A World Government is fundamentally not a good idea.

Danielle
Torvald

Many thanks in advance to my opponent for accepting this debate. For all intents and purposes, a world government is self-explanatory: a single, unified government that everyone in the world is expected to abide by. I will be arguing that such an institution would be impractical, inefficient, implausible and immoral. As such, it would not be a good idea to (attempt to) implement. My opponent will be arguing that a world government is a good idea and would be beneficial to people throughout th...
