Round 1 is to accept the debate. The debate officially starts in the second round. I wish I could put this under philosophy and religion, but that is not possible. Anything goes, pretty much. For the record, I will be using a presuppositional apologetic approach to this topic. Round 1: acceptance Round 2: opening arguments Round 3: rebuttals Round 4: rebuttals and defense Round 5: closing statements...

This overpowers the balance between people who pay taxes, and people who don't...

Should the death penalty be illegal?

savannah1006

I believe that the death penalty should be illegal in ALL states (and the world for that matter) due to the fact that there is no crime that should be punishable by death. For example, if there is a murder (i.e. Jodi Arias), and the defendant is found guilty, the government has no right to kill him/her due to the fact that this too is murder....

I'll give you a chance to put your words against the motion....
