The Death Penalty for the guilty

Mopi
FantumHeist

Right, I'll be going against why there should be no death penalty for the guilty.1)Firstly, it goes agaisnt the very law of Right to protection of life, by awarding a person the death penalty, we ourselves are violating the law and a violation of law is not acceptable2) Its does not teach the guilty anything, if you look at it. The death penalty, the person just dies there is no learning and no going through pain and realizing the mistake they've made, wehreas...

Feminism: Positive or Negative

bryanlink
Pfalcon1318

I am obviously against Feminism, because I feel it's no longer just a movement for equality, but a movement implying that all men are misogynistic pigs, which I obviously refute. There are no rules in this debate. Whoever wants to debate, accept the challenge and post your argument....

Progressive Taxation is Unconstitutional

RobMBroughton
Palmo10

A progressive taxation system is unconstitutional because it violates the General Welfare clause of the Constitution. The underlying problem with a progressive tax system is that, when combined with a representative governmental construct, it fosters and perpetuates a culture of non-accountability. The majority poor vote for representatives promising government subsidies funded by wealth distribution where "somebody else" will pay. Pandering representatives recognize that even 100% tax ra...

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...

Does god really Exist? If so, why does he not care what we believe in?

Lel-Derp
stylishBOY

For Example: Ever noticed that somebody who didn't believe in god never get punished so severely? (Except by the crazy religious people). What do you think about believing in god? Is it a good thing not to let a make-believe being cloud your judgments? Or is it the right thing to let such a deity lead your decisions?...
