Assault weapons should be banned.

drosenbloom18

Before I begin, I would like to clarify that the opponent may not just rely on the right to bear arms, but must explain why the should have that right. I will now proceed to my argument. Contention 1: America no longer has the need to protect itself from a tyrannical government, one of the original purposes of the second amendments. Contention 2: There is no practical use for assault weapons. Contention 3: Gun Control effectively reduces the amount of gun violence....

The words "under God" should not be taken out of the Pledge.

JasperFrancisShickadance
YaHey

I, Pro, concede and imply that "under God" should not be taken out of the American pledge of Allegiance. It is truly a matter of if you believe God is our Creator or not, but our founding Fathers did and this is something to be respected. The nation should not take the chance or risk it because, if the God many presidents and citizens of the USA believe in is real, then we should continue to put our trust in Him. It should not make atheists mad if those words are in the Pledge or on money becaus...

Is Government Necessary?

BRANDOYOUNG
jgates

Is Government necessary? The answer to that question is no. People are independent beings that can hold their own weight and do not need to listen to others to be told what they need to do in life. Government to most is a "necessity" and to others it is a power that some want to abolish. Why waste time to listen to people complain that they don"t like elected officials? Government is not needed and there are many things to show why....

flat fees, not flat taxes, r the truly conservative approach

dairygirl4u2c

flat fees, not flat taxes, are the truly conservative approach conservatives often push for flat taxes. a set percentage of one's income. but, why not just say that eveyone has to pay the same amount? why tax the richer more just because they make more income? and if this casues more tax to be paid overall on the poor, so be it? these are all the arguments made when it comes down to progressive taxes v flat taxes. we could just extend the arguments to flat fees v flat taxes...
