Would Mike Pence make a good President?

LutherSloan34
BetteMidler

Mike Pence would make a great President. He will make christian life easier, he will decrease homosexuality, he will decrease liberalism, he will stick up to conservative values, and he will improve the economy. When he was governor of Indiana he fixed up the state and put them 2 million dollars above budget and make them one of the richest states in the country. He will target drugs and wipe them off of American soil, he will stop the spread of gay marriage, ban pornografy, and end abortion onc...

"The Bill of Rights should not be made into a suicide pact." Because I agree with this quote by Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson, I negate the resolution. Resolved: A just government ought to prioritize civil liberties over national security. I define the important terms as follows: Civil Liberties: as defined by About News, are the rights guaranteed to citizens or residents of a country or territory as a matter of fundamental law. National Security: as defined by Dr. Diane A. Desier...

Should the U.S be involved with foreign conflicts

edrimolt

I think that the U.S should be involved with foreign conflicts, we have seen in the past that if we do not provoke first and have the first move then others will not hesitate to attack. I am referring to Pearl Harbor mostly. What about allies if we help other countries then maybe if we need it we can get assistance back from them in our own time of need. WWII was a bloody war, but if we never joined then maybe it could have lasted longer and been even more bloody than it was....

GuiAlex
Nathaniel_Kampeas

This House Believes Death Penalty Should Be Applied To All Major Crimes. THB motions don't require the people debating to show how this would be applied. Robs to consider DO NOT INCLUDE food IF the person committed the crime as last resort to survive. Major Crimes are All Crimes from stealing to murdering. The debate is 4 rounded and this is the way it should be debated Round 1- Definitions, Models. Main Arguments, Contestations Round 2 - Extension, Refutation Round 3- Rebuttal, Refutatio...

More Guns Creates a Safer Society

TheColtEqualizer
Zoecri

Hi, so I saw your opinion on assault weapons and I thought you may like to have a debate concerning the 2nd Amendment and Gun Rights. My position is that more guns = less crime, whilst your position will be the opposite (more guns = more crime). If this debate is not satisfactory to you, please counter-propose a debate or send me a message....
