Kescarte_DeJudica

In this debate, I will attempt to argue and prove that the federal government should switch from an income tax to a sales tax. My opponent will be taking the side that the government should keep an income tax, whether it be sticking with the current progressive, bracketed system, or switching to a flat tax. Definitions: Sales tax- a tax the government charges on the sale of items. Income tax- a tax the government charges on the recipient of income Rules: 1. No trolling (bringing up...

The Transportation Security Administration was created in response to the September 11th 2001 terrorist attacks on the USA. Its stated mission "to protect the nation's transportation systems to ensure freedom of movement."

Institutions that fail and, in fact do the opposite of what they are intended to do should be shut down. The TSA does the opposite of what it is intended to do, therefore it s...

These are the three main things I see feminism talk about, I will then explain in brief how these are all completely wrong and should be shut down immediately without any questioning. Let's s...
