should parties be allowed?

jackthesnack
warren42

American is in a divide. The two major parties the democrats and Republicans have created a gridlock and made our legislature nonfunctional. These parties have created teams almost that will vote against things just to piss off the other parties. Also some of the participants in these parties no longer serve the people who voted for them but rather appeal to the higher ups on the political ladder. Lastly many people join these parties purely for money and support and i would be better if the fed...

Obama is posioning to America.

Obama has set in motion events that are damaging to the delicate geo-political balance of the world and thinks he is doing a good job. There fore he must be the anti-Christ. He has cut our Military off at the knees, while creating a power vacuum in the Middle East allowing ISIS to take over. This has all happen when his biggest concern was his golf handicap. Has forced Obama care on us effectively raising medical insurance for the entire middle class. Now he is trying to force his reCockulous im...

The debate topic is rather simple to understand. First round is acceptance. Failure to abide by that rule or the forfeit of a round will result in overall forfeit....

The economy was mans worst invention

Bob_Manbook
Rwicks

The economy allows for people to be discriminated because of their position in the economy. It also allows certain people to have more stuff then other people because of their position in the economy. It creates divides between the poor and the rich. Some people aren't able to get what they need to live because they don't have money. The best thing that could ever happen to this earth is this. We destroy the economy, everybody works and everybody gets what they need once they work. Discriminatio...

On balance, a ban on civilian firearm ownership would be beneficial to the United States

UchihaMadara
donald.keller

DK and I have been planning to do this debate for a couple weeks now. Standard debate rules apply; first round for acceptance, no new arguments in the final round, no semantics, no trolling, etc. I doubt any of that will be a problem, here. A quick note on the resolution-- the debate will NOT be revolving around the implementation of a gun ban; it will be about whether or not the effects of a gun ban which has already been implemented are positive. I look forward to an excellent debate :D...

Scottish Independence

SNP_02
Atheist-Independent

I strongly believe in Independence for Scotland within the EU. The Yes Campaign fought a great campaign for a better Scotland, but we were fooled by the lies of the Westmonster Establishment. Although after a referendum, the dream is NOT dead. Before the referendum SNP membership was ~20,000. Now, 3 months after, it's almost 100,000. Already Westmonster are backtracking on their promises clearly shown in 'The Vow' in which David Cameron MP, Nick Clegg MP, and Ed Miliband MP all signed. These 3...

The democrats are more racist than the republicans

Flipbook
abstrackedruth

This is my first debate since a long inactivity period following a rage induced set of poor arguments. Rules: There is no status quo, therefore burden of proof is shared. This is about racism, not sexism. If sexism is argued in the place of racism... Then maybe you can get away with it if it's a strong enough argument. I believe that all races are equal and the only true way to not be racist is to not acknowledge that race exists. Con can start first....
