The Chechen Wars Were a Necessity for Russian National Stability & Security

Amedexyius

This debate is impossible to accept, if you want to participate, you must message me.There was a lack of response to my ultra-heavy challenge of the 3 debates I posted last time, so I edited it to compose the primary point and biggest questions of the Chechen Wars. I only recommend to accept this challenge if you have prior knowledge or are studious in Russian contemporary history and Russian politics.

I will argue that there should be no restrictions on what words we can use on DDO. First round is acceptance.Resolution: "The swearing filter on DDO should be removed."I am Pro, airmax1227 is Con.

I think there are lots of problems...

moderate communism - good or bad

i am not here to argue that comunism is perfect, or in anyway should be followed. What i am here to argue is that, like any form of government, communism can work if applied in the right way. The underlying problem is that people look at the soviets and them lot as what communism looks like. That was not communism! I think that moderate communism is the way foward. look foward to any replies...

Rap Battle: Trump (pro) v. Clinton (con)

RonaldTrumpkin
DebaterGood

This is self-explanatory. I, pro, will be rapping as Republican candidate Donald Trump. My opponent, con, will be rapping as Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. My opponent will start out his/her round with the first verse. Failure to do so shall result in automatic forfeiture as this is a condition of accepting this challenge. This is supposed to be fun, so please don't take it too seriously, and swearing is allowed in this battle if censored and kept to a minimum. Again, failure to do...
