Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour will benefit the US economy

Juan_Pablo
Jevinigh

Increasing the federal minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $10.10 per hour will mostly benefit the U.S. Economy. This will be my position in this debate. (I will also be arguing that the federal minimum wage should be indexed to inflation, to keep up with the rising cost of living--a point which my opponent can either choose to refute or ignore.)Con will argue that r...

All Human Actions are Taken Through Self-Interest

MyDinosaurHands
Loveshismom

I believe that every action a human being has ever taken has been motivated by self-interest. My opponent should argue that at least some human actions occur without self-interest (or just selfishness if you'd prefer) as the motivator. Any arguments that get all nitpicky involving some kind of out there scenarios with mind control or whatever should not be counted when determining the better arguments. My opponent may talk about coercion, like a gun to the head type scenario, but any sce...

End the US presidency

Kirknerk
Niemieckilech

We do not need a president. We have Congress. They represent us. They make laws for us. They are accountable to us. The president, does, or should do, none of these things. Three things are likely to happen if we discontinued the American presidency. 1) We would no longer have one man standing behind a pulpit, as a symbol of one specific set of ideologies, dividing our country. We would only elect people from our home state that some of us actually know personally, to represent us. We woul...

God Can Gain Knowledge While Being Omniscient

Rational_Thinker9119
zmikecuber

The burden of proof will be shared. I will be arguing that there is no explicit contradiction in God gaining knowledge while still being omniscient by definition, like some may think. My opponent will argue it is a contradiction for God to gain knowledge if he is omniscient, because if God knows all there is to know already, then he cannot know more. God For...

Execution of an offender sentenced to death...
