Yes we (USA) should unite nations with Canada. By 2018 China's economy will be bigger then US, Canada, Germany, Britain, France, Italy and Russia combined. Russia has been targeting Canada for there resources for many years. Canada needs the USA for there technology and the powerful army. The USA is spending loads of money on patrolling the border for drugs since Canada doesn't have a army to help patrol. At the very least it would be profitable because we could industrialize the northern area o...

Resolved: The average intelligence of a Fox News Anchor is = or < the average intelligence of a rock

imabench
Wallstreetatheist

The resolution is pretty straightforward, Pro must argue why the average Fox News anchorman is about as smart as a rock or less than that of a rock, while the con must argue that Fox News anchormen are capable of intellectual thought, reasoning, and logical conclusions based on evidence. First round is acceptance only :D...

Child labor should be illegal on tobacco for many reasons. Tobacco farms are dangerous and there are no many agriculture laws taking precautions to protect young people from getting injured or preventing fatal accidents. The laws vary state by state, and children as young as 6 could work on tobacco farms, as long as it does not interfere with education. Hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries happen annually because children are not old enough. This is just with the machinery. Working on to...

RocketEngineer
ConservativePolitico

Hello everyone! Based on the two biggest issues on the news during the last week, I think this would be a fun debate. How this will work, is that my opponent will pick one person in round one. This debate will be about determining who is more sick and twisted out of Jodi Arias, and Ariel Castro. I will take either one. Debate will take place in rounds 2 and 3. Thanks in advance to whoever accepts this. :)...
