should torture be used against terrorists

giantsbane
LucasClarvoe

Many people disagree about whether torture should be used on known terrorists. I believe that torture should be used for various reasons. One reason is torture could prevent lots of "collateral damage", by torturing a terrorist we could find a bomb that would have killed many people if we had not found it. " if we are willing to act in a way that guarantees the misery and death of some considerable number of innocent children, why spare the rod with known terrorists? This shows how if we torture...

Death penalty

I am against death penalty. It is like going back to the past, because most of the countries alredy abolish it. Why? Because life is a basic right, not even the government can violate that right, it doesn't matter if the crime is very high. Death penalty avoid the opportunity for criminals to reflect. And if you say that criminals will not change, how do you know that? The government should try to search spirit and psicologist help. I am in favour that maybe people will go out of the jail, but t...

Abortion should be illegal

tejretics

Pro can either start arguing in Round 1 and waive the final round, or use the first round for acceptance alone, and allow me to start the debate in Round 2. No new arguments in the final round. "Abortion" refers to "the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy." Pro has to argue that abortion, in all stages of pregnancy, should be illegal (outside of cases when the mother's life is in danger, or cases of rape). I have to argue that abortion has to be allowed in at least certain stages...

yadayada

I am arguing that all indications were that Hillary was assured of winning the presidency and that Donald Trump was fighting against impossible odds since she had been backed by all of the democrat party machine, George Soros, including the Chicago political machine. Donald Trump was an outsider as far as the political elite were concerned and didn't have the political experience that Hillary, The Clintons, had, working for him. Was Donald Trump's election the result of Hillary having discou...

Is the Electoral College a Good Way to Have an Election?

byaka2013
TheMarketLibertarian

The Electoral College means that your vote doesn't matter and the 1% buys the vote. States are unfairly represented and swing states really only matter. Popular vote has been divergent of electoral 5 times now, so when will it end? We need a fair system, not this disaster. I am calling for direct popular voting, removing this whole system of 55 for CA, etc. This is not democracy- this is oligarchy....
