The United States Federal Government should legalize child porn Wylted vs Bluesteel and Mikal

Wylted
bluesteel

FRAMEWORK I'm advocating for the full legalization of child porn. My original intention was to take a softer form of legalization, but after diving a little deeper into the topic, I've decided to advocate for full legalization. I don't want anybody to be mislead by the word full. So please continue reading for conext. I'm not advocating for the sexual abuse or sexual exploitation of a minor. It would...

Obama would be dangerous as president of the United States.

Forget whether going to war with Iraq was the right or wrong decision, do you really think pulling out all our troops within 90 days is a good idea? The ramifications of pulling out would be TERRRIBLE. how can you not see that? We not only have a militaristic obligation, but a MORAL obligation as a country to finish what we started. Not only due we owe it to the Iraqi people, but WE OWE IT TO OUR SOLDIERS WHO SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES IN THIS WAR. The surge is working, political reconciliation is h...

Resolved: Hitler vs Justin Bieber

imabench

After doing thorough research I have failed to find a single debate that addresses the issue of who is more evil, Hitler or Justin Bieber? This is an issue that millions of people ask themselves every day, and it is apalling that this topic has not been debated here on DDO. After making this discovery I realized that as the head troll of the site it is my sworn duty to bring this legendary debate ready to happen into fruition, and I will be...

Official Debate: Should the United States became a Commonwealth realm?

RoyalistTeaPartyOfficial
ChosenWolff

Hello, officially it's the Royalist Tea Party here, it has came to our attention that some people on this site were pretending to be us, for years, starting debates, discrediting us, etc., so we feel conflicted and must make an official debate. We apologise for any inconvenience. I, the real Emily Molloy, am having our vice chairman, Matthew, take control of this debate. F...

Israel is on the short end of the stick

m93samman
juvanya

The full resolution of the debate is "Israel has clearly violated human rights and is unjustified in its actions." Juvanya has been adamant in upholding zionist doctrines and beliefs on facebook, and, after several days, he has refused to change his beliefs. No one is really judging the debates, though. Maybe here, the voting will provide for some sort of metric by which we determine who wins. _____ Rules: _____ 1) Round 1 will have no argumentation whatsoever; if my opponent has any al...

***** "legal" definition: of, based on, or concerned with the law ***** I first begin my argument with a religious pretext. The following are citations from the US Constitution. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." -First Amendment "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." -Tenth Amendmen...

Obama will not be our next President

joshandr30

Obama will not be our next President. I have three arguments for this stance on this debate. 1.RACE-Unfortunately America is not ready for a African American President. Racism is not far enough in our past yet. I am a Union member. Out of the twenty seven people I work with there are three Republicans, including myself. The "dems" I work with were split, twenty for Clinton, four for Obama. When Clinton lost the nomination twenty of the "Dems" said they would NOT vote for Obama. Race was the m...

Are republicans just stuck up christians with too much money?

gonovice
RepublicanView333

Republicans, where to start. This debate is sensitive subject with me. My whole family is Republican and christian. I guess you could call me a rebel. I am confused about God and I am a democrat. I think that republicans are extremley close minded and dont ever allow anything new or different in the country. George Bush for example came from a wealthy family and look how sucky the country is right now!! I would like to know why republicans are so against gay marriage. Oh wait I already know that...

In terms of quality of life, a flat tax places an unfair, substantially heavier burden on the poor.

KroneckerDelta
Beginner

This is mostly a hypothetical debate. However, I will present numbers which Con is more than welcome to question.In this debate we will be looking at relatively modern Western Societies and specifically the United States (although I think this would easily apply to modern European countries such as the UK, France, Germany, etc.). This stipulation is particularly important when defining the minimum cost of living (since one could say that in 3rd world countries the cost of living...
