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

Magelina

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...

Dear Fox News lovers: I'm calling you out specifically considering I can't seem to find a competent opponent... "There are traitors in America. Whoever leaked all those State Department documents to Wikileaks is a traitor and should be executed or put in prison for life." -- Bill O'Reilly. "Whoever in our government leaked that information is guilty of treason, and I think anything less than execution is too kind a penalty" -- Mike Huckabee " [Assange] is an anti-American operativ...

Wikileaks is a threat to US National Security

Thanks to my opponent for agreeing to debate this with me :) I affirm the resolution that Wikileaks IS a threat to the United States' national security. Before starting my case, I'd like to define a few key terms: Threat is defined as "declaration of an intention or a determination to inflict harm on another" National Security is the requirement to maintain the survival of the nation-state through the use of economic, military and political power and the exercise of diplomacy. National S...

Should we eliminate sanctions against Iran to normalize relations?

DaniDichter
CiRrK

We can't begin to make progress if we continue to shut out countries that could be helpful. With the current situation in the Middle East, is this a good time to begin to rebuild relations? Particularly with the idea that we may be facing new governments that may or may not support us? Is this a good time to in essence begin anew?...

Should marijuana be legalized?

kboudreau
democrat435

The legalization of marijuana has been and always will be a controversial issue in the United States. Many people argue that it is harmful to your health, dangerous and addictive, but isn't that exactly what alcohol and tobacco are and they are legal. We would like to argue that minus the fallacies, there's no real reason why marijuana should be illegal. In the United States you need to be at least twenty-one to purchase alcohol, and nineteen to purchase tobacco. In one year tobacco has caused 4...

"Yay Osama's dead" I have been seeing a lot of this knidove thing on social networks and the news stations that I watch and even calls to pull out of places like Afghanistan in the wake of this unfortunately, we're not there to kill one person. Whether you believe that we are there for oil, to find WMDs, to stamp out terrorism, to fight a fight that was brought to our shores as the US president said, to bright stability to the region or just to control it. I think we can all agree that killing O...
