Presidential Term Limits (US)

PatriotPerson
kasmic

Well, here's my first serious debate in a while. I believe there should be a limit to how long a United States President can serve. Some people say that the amendment restricting a president's length in office should be abolished, and I think it should stay. As you can see, this debate is impossible to accept. If you wish to be my opponent, PM me and I might let you. ROUND 1- Acceptance ROUND 2- Arguments ROUND 3- Arguments ROUND 4- Concluding Arguments...

Government Meddling in the U.S. Food System Only Makes Things Worse Off for Everyone

Jblock

The U.S. government has banned trans-fats. Great news?, right? This must mean that Americans will be healthier, more fit and less obese in up and coming years? Unfortunately this is not the case. The government has a long history of meddling in the food system; most of which has resulted in a worsening of the American health system in general. While some of the intervention might be paved with good intentions, government meddling in the food system has contributed -- and in some cases caused --...

In some cases, abortion can be ruled as a justifiable homicide.

First, let me specify that I oppose elective abortion, but I support it for the following reasons: The health of the mother is adversly effected by pregnancy, the child will suffer anyway,, the mother is a mental patient who is traumatized by (pregnancy would make me suicidal),, and so on. If the mother is raped, abortion can be justified if the pregnancy causes her to relive that trauma. I am a modeerate when it comes to abortion....

Should Marijuana be Legal?

I believe Marijuana should be legal because it has more benefits than disadvantages. The legalization of Cannabis would be benefit America financially. Jobs will be created helping American citizens and also can be taxed helping pay for other government expenditures and could lower the burden on the American taxpayer.States that have legalized it have seen tremendous amount of benefits for example Colorado has seen a drop of crime rate, 10 million from retail sales in the first 4 months, more re...

Is Guantanamo Bay a good or a bad facility

TheDebater1
drew459

I believe that Gunatanamo Bay is a bad idea. According to the eigth amandment of the constitution of the United States of America, no unusual or cruel punishments bestowed on people. I believe that this is Rumsfeld doing and that Barack Obama didn't have the balls to do anything. But, I cannot ignore the fact that torture and other extreme punishments are being forced onto muslims. They may have done bad things, i will get a lot of hate for this. The people locked at Guantanamo Bay deserve to...

The death penalty has been increasing the Death toll over the world. This penalty has mostly been given to murderers, though th executioner then will himself be a murder, and he will go on and on and on until humantiy is extinct. Also why kill two people for only one murder? To add on many of us value our nations heroes though theey killed other people illegaly....
