Should America convert to use the metric system?

Linagaki
Trump27

On the other hand, all the other industrialized countries use a different system, the International System of Units(also known as the IS and/or metric system).

Should Minimum Wage Be Raised

Ranting_All_Day
RepublicansvLiberals

Honestly, so many people are going bankrupt and are losing their houses with their families along with them, if we raise minimum wage then the money will be equal, it doesn't have to skyrocket, just maybe by like $1.5 - 2.0 then people would be in a more happy mood. you also have to think who this money is going to, for example teachers get paid minimum wage and they have to teach our future geniuses and they should get paid more, or even your own family, how would you like being kicked out of y...

Amounts of pesticides used are reduced so exposure to dangerous p...

DNehlsen

Teens and even some adults are committing suicide because they are victims of hate speech. Hate speech should not be protected because it infringes on others" ability to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. (like the constitution states) Every other nation has a law limiting hate speech, it"s time America steps up and does the right thing. The common sense of right and wrong speaks for itself no matter the majority stance, that does not mean your right. Hate speech harms by spreading negative, d...
