RepublitariansUnite

As young adults in the United States we are allowed to fight/die in wars, purchase guns, vote, pay taxes, work, go to college, and have many more rights that equal older adults. Yet we are not allowed to drink alcohol. Many people who appose alcohol quickly point at the DUI stats from current college/young adults age groups. But what these people don't know is that other countries like Germany have successfully bypassed these tragedies by teaching their kids what alcohol can do. They're training...

Le.Doctor

Hello, I'm Billy. I will be debating against the death penalty, the most extreme form of crime punishment. I will show you that the death penalty should and ought to be abolished. Here are 2 opening reasons to oppose capital punishment. (There will be 10 reasons total, 2 in each of the 5 rounds.) 1. The occasional mistake is more risky than it's worth. Let's say you accuse someone of murder, and the jury votes him as guilty and the state government executes him, but later you find out he's in...

Democrat and liberal policies have hurt the black community

Capitalism
gannon260

It is a well recorded fact an overwhelming majority of the African-American population consider themselves democrats. This begs the question: has the policies pushed by the Democratic Party and those left of the political spectrum actually helped to advance the black community? "Advance" and "helped" are broad terms, so it is up to pro/con to explain the ways certain policies have helped or hurt whether it be socially, economically or otherwise. Rules of the debate are simple: no troll...
