I believe that drones should be illegal. Drones have caused a lot of distress to pilots and could one day be a great problem and could cost people their lives....

The minimum wage should be raised to $16.97 or more. According to the Huffington Post, the amount of money a full time worker needs to be paid in order to survive in the cheapest county in the US is $10.20.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/17/worker-wage_n_3610530.html...

100th Debate: Taxes Should be Raised on the Rich

1Historygenius

Hello friends! I'm doing my 100th debate here on DDO. For this debate, I decided to pick my favorite topic of tax policy. I will argue against taxes being raised on the rich and I will instead argue that taxes should be maintained or lowered for economic and government revenue benefits. My opponent must argue that raising taxes on the rich. The rich are those paying, as many would agree, the current top income tax rate and current capital gains tax rate.

Huge Lego Buildings ( with brick sized Legos)

Gatto_Gateaau

Yes, lego buildings are possible to make if the legos are the size of bricks. If you think about it when you make buildings with these types of legos you dont need to demolish buildings, even if you do demolish the building you are able to use the same pieces again to make a new house. This virtually illiminates the problem...

Should taxes be spent on welfare?

Carnajusa

Basically money that people work for is going to people who don't work and allowing them to live jobless lives. It is an extreme waste of money and doesn't strengthen our economy it only cripples it. Instead it should be spent to get homeless people jobs and homes and a boost to live a normal life rather than normal healthy people living off it forever. This would insure everyone gets a job and not have homeless struggle for money....

The United States should return to the gold standard

RoyalFlush100
Max.Wallace

First round is acceptance only. Pro cannot introduce any new arguments in the final round as Con has no chance to rebut them. The gold standard is defined as "a monetary system in which a country's government allows its currency unit to be freely converted into fixed amounts of gold and vice versa. The exchange rate under the gold standard monetary system is determined by the economic difference for an ounce of gold between two currencies." (1) 1-http://www.investopedia.com/terms/g/gold...

The US Penny Should be Taken out of Service

Pokemonzr
o0jeannie0o

I have not debated on this website for a long time. Glad to be back! Moving on, this is the debate of the topic: "The US Penny Should be Taken Out of Service." The first round is simply for acceptance. Rules: 1) No trolling/semantics. 2) No offensive content/swearing 3) Keep arguments within the spirit of debate/no personal attacks. In the event of a rule being broken by either side, it will result in an automatic loss. I eagerly await an opponent....
