Socialism is a horrible idea.

Please present argument in 3 point style, no Rebuttles until second round and 3rd round for closing statements. ----------------- 1. It promotes collectivism. Collectivism is when the government wants to sacrifice the rights of the individual for the better of the whole. Hillary Clinton, Mao ze dong, and hitler all said it when they claimed we must stop worrying about the individual and about society as a whole. However that is the fundamental flaw with them all as the government is then able...

Should military service be required for U.S. Presidency?

wyattn97
Golan

A large majority of U.S. Presidents (31/44) have served. The President is Commander in Chief, and can mobilize armed forces. The President is in charge of the military during times of war, and must understand combat strategies. Commander in Chief is the highest military position, it only makes sense to have someone from the military in this position. The strongest con to a military president is that America will look like a war-hungry nation. The strongest con to a military pres...

Hate Crime Laws: Are hate crime laws fair and judicially sound?

Think_King
87Jim87

Absolutely not. No where else in our judicial system is motive for a crime a punishable offence. There is no proper way to regulate, or police it. Once thoughts on actions become punishable, our freedom to think is gone. Hate crime laws are an effort at thought control masquerading as legitimate criminal justice legislation. If two people commit the same crime, they deserve the same punishment. One should not be deemed greater than the other because of the thoughts that motivated the act or were...

We should keep out illegal immagrants and secure our border

august55433

I believe that illegal immigrants should be kept out of our country. They hurt our economy and are an overall bad thing for us. I know that they are just trying to get a better life, but what makes them better then the people that are doing the same thing, except that they are waiting in line? The illegal immigrants just cheat and budge ahead of everyone. They don't pay taxes, and they get to be on our welfare system. This overpowers the balance between people who pay taxes, and people who don't...

Affirmative Action Should be Disallowed

Varrack
TBR

I, Pro, shall be arguing that racial affirmative action should be disallowed. Gender is also a typical consequence of it, but I want to focus this debate on the racial/ethnic aspect of it. I will be arguing that using racial preferences over merit when accepting students into colleges or hiring job applicants is discriminatory and unfair. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Pro presents case/Con rebuts Round 3 & 4: Counter rebuttals The burden of proof is upon me. It is Con's job to rebut my ca...

The use of U.S ground forces against ISIS

byron2032
TheJuniorVarsityNovice

While the use of U.S ground forces against ISIS in Iraq and Syria would be vastly unpopular, it has become necessary with the growing strength, scope, and influence of ISIS. While the U.S led air campaign against ISIS has made a considerable impact on the group's progress the war simply can not be won from the air; Iraqi, Kurdish, and Syrian forces do not have the training, technology, or manpower to effectively wage a ground war alone. In the meantime ISIS continues to recruit the citizens of w...
