China should become a Federal Republic.

Jifpop09
Kleptin

Pro will argue China should become a Federal Republic, con will argue the opposite. $th round will not be played, unless I am pm'd to extend it. Only conclusion should go there until I do. One rule... - You may not argue the republic part. We will assume they have the US federal government system of states for the purpose of the debate....

Sam_Lowry

My point is that weapons like AK and M16 should never be legalized and sold to citizens. Con has to provide arguments why automatic weapons should be legalized while I provide why it shouldnt be. This is just an intro round, arguments are posted at round 2....

Private entities ought to be able to discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, etc.

Private entities ought to be able to discriminate based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin without hassle from government or law enforcement. I am not interested in a semantics debate. If any confusion regarding the resolution exists please ask about it in the comments section and I will clarify. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. In recent times and times past people have taken private...

Solarman1969 is rood mainly for the attention.

Solarman1969

Hi , During a debate concerning the sport of swimming, Solarman1969 and I got into a verbal arguement that may still now be going on. Nevertheless, he will probably make a comment on this debate (if accepted) on how I am a 'scared mouse', or another common 'little boy-girl'. Either this, or a cheek remark of the opposite that oozes sarcasm. Solarman1969- yes you!- feels the need to maintain his reputation as a rood jerk who can never win a debate. He is probably not that bad a person in real l...

There is good reason to believe in the, inherent, Intellectual superiority of the Mongoloid 'Race'

mattrodstrom

First of all let me state that the resolution was suggested by con in the forum and while i think it is a very apt resolution I have a slight problem with the quotation marks around the word: race. I suspect this issue of is race real or is it just a social construct will become a point of contention in the debate, however i might just be reading too much into it - i will let con enlighten the readers and I as to what he meant by the quotation marks. By saying inherent I mean to say that gene...

nerdyandnotsoproud

This question has been raised in many different forms, on this site. Mostly in the form of "Should gay marriage be allowed?". But never to my knowledge has it been discussed directly. So the questions stands. "Is Homosexuality wrong?" Homosexuality is not wrong. 1)Many people, automatically bring up the bible, when faced with this question. And thats fine, for those that believe the bible. But, what about those that dont? Sure the bible has been used to set the foundations of countries an...

Drug Legalization

mongeese
tkubok

By drug legalization, I mean the legalization (as in, it is made legal, and not illegal by law) of all drugs for all people at or above the age of responsibility that are mentally stable, have no felony record, and promise not to give drugs to minors. This assumes that people are still allowed to ban the use of recreational drugs on their own private property, and the government is allowed to ban the use of certain drugs on certain public property, such as schools. Naturally, an argument m...
