Should the media be held responsible for what they say?


Yes, the media has taken this election cycle way to personal and it shows. I am not sure they are aware of how much damage they are causing to the country by continuing this divide. Fake News is now the norm. The news channels are making retractions every week now. "Just print it and we will fact check it later." seems to be okay, enough is enough! The integrity of hard news reporter has given away to tabloid trash. A press license should be required. Fines should be levied against news outlet t...

Is Donald Trump similar to Peter the Great?


Peter the Great of Russian history was a vocal, hands on, politically incorrect ruler who eventually transformed Russia. He permanently reshaped its future and dragged it out of the dark ages. Peter upset many people along the way, and had to struggle with the power structure at that time (the Boyars). He took "Russia first" nationalistic approach and was willing to go to war to fight for his beliefs. That in many ways is similar to Donald Trump. Donald is politically incorrect, hands on,...

The word "racism" has become a misused label in the United States.


Hello and thank you to anyone who accepts this debate. I would simply like to address the fact that society tends to label anything that remotely has to do with race or ethnicity as "racist". To clarify, the Pro (me) will be arguing that the phrase has been misused in society and is tossed around too much while the Con side can argue that the word is used correctly and is correctly applied to each scenario I bring.The definition of racism is: prejudice, discrimination, or antago...

The United Nations is an effective platform for international issues.


For this debate, I would like a polished and professional discussion with the aim to sway both your opponent and the voters. I hope this debate is enjoyable and lively for all those participating. I would like to open the debate with an argument defending my first position, choosing con. I believe that the United Nations is both an ineffective and intrusive organization, its existence a platform for special interests. While it has done good in the past, recent events show that most countries...

Donald Trump's "Muslim Ban" is unconstitutional.


Donald Trump's "Muslim Ban" is unconstitutional. It is hard to debate that this is not unconstitutional. Our founding father based this nation on the freedom of religion, so why is a religion being singled out and "banned" from entering our country? Many people will argue that most terrorist attacks are carried out by Muslims, but that is simply not true. How could this possibly not be unconstitutional? The fact that anyone is being banned based on any similar trait is unconstitutional....

Obama was a good president


I have yet to find the words to describe the overwhelming sense of satisfaction I felt on Nov. 4, 2008 when Obama won the popular vote by 53 percent. With tears in my eyes, and joy in my heart, I stood alongside people of color across the nation as we celebrated America"s first inauguration of a black president. As a young black man, I felt a true sense of patriotism as I witnessed our country rally together to show, finally, that we are more concerned about who is the most qualified man for the...
