Should their be a death penalty

Kingjames
BillBonJovi

No their should not. Their are many people out there who have done very little crimes like speeding or parked in a wrong spot, does that mean they deserve a death penalty. They are still nice people, they should not be punished that harshily. Many celebrities today have done way worse things than that like drug possesion, gun possession, or attempted suicide, those crimes should lead those people to death penalty so no I dont believe in a death penalty...

Should Prisoners have the Right to Vote?

anitajasmine

I am interested in the debate over whether it is right the prisoner's should have the right to vote. My argument is that Prisoners should have the right to vote becuase it is a human right and once we begin taking away human rights where can we draw the line? If we assume the belief that someone forfits their human rights when convicted of a crime, what is protecting prisoners from unjust treatment and torture? This is my first argument, but I am interested in how other people feel on this i...

EnlightenedEntity has repeatedly proposed just what the title says, so he obviously has the burden of proof; however, I would like to start off a few things by outlining a few definitions: harm - physical injury or mental damage; hurt good - for the better; beneficial Sources: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/harm (For good, there are 58 definitions and none represent what I would like to state precisely enough. So the above is the general consensus, given the surrounding sent...

Canada should help Libya before helping their own country first?!

Magelina
mb852

In my opinion, Canada should help their own country first. They should help their country as quick as they can so then after that they could help Libya. I'm not saying that Canada should not help other countries although, if Canada has millions of dollars to send planes to Libya, can't they use some of that money to feed the hungry people that we have in Canada? Many people go home and not having anything to eat that night, the next night and/or the whole week! Although Libya is in danger as we...

My opponent will argue that political violence is the suitable way for the public to express the opinion to the government. Good luck! Looking for a good debate...

Am I Christine O'Donnell?

airmax1227

During the 2010 U.S. Senate special election in Delaware, Christian O’Donnell released this hypnotically mesmerizing video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxJyPsmEaskChristine O’Donnell claims to be you. She claims that she is you indefinitely. She was taking to an open audience, addressing the entire population. She was talking to all of us. The referents are us. In this, she claims to be us and thus she claims to be me. But if she is me, then who am I?...

Will the Buffett Tax System be beneficial for the economy?

Sam4luck
Friedman

I believe that the Buffett Tax System will prove beneficial for the US and world economy because it will lead to a progressive system that will move towards a more balanced and shared economical existence. While many millionaires have argued against this and that according to the estimates from the Tax Policy Center, the average federal tax rates paid by people with incomes over 1million is about 29% while that of people with income between $50,000 to $75,000 is only about 15%, this policy will...
