Should the United States raise the Federal minimum wage?

Ryan6789
Conservative1998

In contrast to the current opinion that raising the minimum wage would be helpful to low wage workers, it would actually be detrimental. According to James Sherk, a raise in the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $15.00 will cause a loss of 9 million jobs. This is because of the decrease in quantity demanded at that wage due to the lack of the ability for small businesses to absorb this new wage floor; 99.7% of business are considered small and according to the National Federation of Independent...

That UBI should be implemented in the western world

ISDA
Turdle

UBI is an undeniably good choice for the western world, as it eliminates extreme poverty and allows more economic freedom. For those who don't know UBI, or Universal Basic Income, it is where the government gives every citizen a base income of around $10,000 that you can spend on anything. The difference between this and normal welfare is that most public welfare goes by the system that you earn the amount of money from the welfare but any amount above and you lose said welfare, acting as a box...

China will collapse

DaChosenOne81

Gordon Chang and many alike have been predicting China's 'collapse' for decades. We hear about the housing bubble, corruption, the slow down, increasing debt, a 'hard landing' or even demographic problems. Despite all of these claims, recent reports of China's economy from the 2017 FY report very positive results, and that's coming from the IMF. China's economy grew by 6.9% in 2017 which is the first increase in 17 years, China's government has also been working diligently to prevent a housing b...

Net neutrality

baileyboo500
wherehad

I believe in net neutrality but I don't when reading your response I noticed that you only thought about "providing your son that yacht he always wanted," and "WE SHOULD HAVE EVEN MORE POWER," and what I want to say is that net neutrality is NOT about providing people like you with more power and your son with a yacht it is about how the Internet service providers must treat all data on the Internet the same, and not discriminate or charge differently by user, content, website, platform, applica...

Capitalism as an economic system functions better than Socialism.

snowtigerspeaks
frankfurter50

Do your best to maintain focus on the logical reasoning for how each system functions. I know it will be tempting to talk about unfairness and unjust societies oppressing the working class and such but we are not here to debate your feelings about how people are treated. If you want to take a logical position of the negative externalities created by a working or oppressed class that is acceptable, I have no interest in hearing about evil corporations or the ruthless people of the national social...

Should the government use all of our funding to try and bring Anime Waifus to real life?

LilWaynelighterflicker
thelonelymoutain

As most of us are aware the central government is using our tax dollars, which are being stole from us for stupid, ineffective, and wasteful programs. Such programs include Obamacare, DACA, Food Stamps, and housing assistance. Instead of these meaningless programs the government should focus their efforts on something that can actually be used to enhance the lives of the people who actually contribute the nation, not lazy people and illegal immigrants. Funding the production of real life anime w...
