The Federal Reserve Should Be abolished:

harrytruman

There are a few terms to this debate that you should agree to before accepting the challenge, they're really simple I just have to state them to resolve a few issues. First of all you are not allowed to "drop out" of the debate, once you accept the challenge you must respond to my arguments in their entirety within 3 days, that way if you start to lose you don't get to flake out on me. Secondly, google documents are not a conduct violation, you could just as easily as I can star...

Should we stop hunting Lions?

Adley104
andrewz61

I think we should stop hunting lions because the population of lions was really high in the 1990-1950 (100,000 to 400,000).Now there is about 16,500 to 47,000 lions left in the wild. Lions don't do anything to us, they just want to avoid us but we provoke them and it get them angry and they start killing people because of us provoking them. We kill them for no reason sometimes just for fun or just to keeps it's head as a trophy. Heard about Cecil the Lion, Scientist were studying that Lion un...

Capitalism Vs. Socalism

BicoulourOcean94
kyleflanagan97

Capitalism is better than Socialism in many ways. First and foremost Capitalism gives power to the people and Socialism gives power to the Government. I hate the Idea of people living in poverty and going to bed hungry. Socialism is not the answer to these problems. The distribution of wealth does not work, it rewards people for minimum amounts of work, eventually you will run out of other people's money to use. Capitalism rewards the people for working hard. I like to think of these two ideals...

Should US citizens have the right to bear arms?

Debate999
kasmic

Should US citizens have the right to bear arms? The answer, yes. Jefferson said "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have." So giving up our guns would be feeding the government, they would only grow. A government that is to powerful will lead to chaos and dictation. Who will you feed, the government or the people? Feeding the government gives them a change to throw away all the good that the founding Fathers made f...

Should Abortion be illegal?

NoorH606
Sgt4Liberty

The debate over whether or not abortion should be a legal option continues to divide Americans long after the US Supreme Court's 7-2 decision in Roe v. Wade declared the procedure a "fundamental right" on Jan. 22, 1973. I believe abortion should continue on to be legal because as the independence state we are free we all have freedom some people use that freedom has an excuse or to made bad choices but we have no right to fight or break the law. I really believe that abortion is wrong but it's n...

Minimum Wage Raise

Jbmelk
KuronoaYoshiaki

I am against a raise in the minimum wage for a few reasons. 1. A minimum wage would force many jobs to be lost. Say for example, if there was a $15 minimum wage, then I will use Dunder Mifflin Paper as an example. They have 15 employees in one branch and they all get paid, say $9/hr. Dunder Mifflin is breaking even and doing ok. But, now that the federal government has stepped in and raised the minimum wage to $15/hr, Dunder Mifflin has had to fire people due to the higher wages. Now Dunder...
