Basically they lose their tax exempt status....

Should women have the same rights as men?!?

Mr.masterDebator
Castaway

I'm here to say that I think women should have the same right as men do. One reason I think women should have the same right as men is because they are the one's who gave birth to all of us men. Two what makes a man so much more important than men. Three women should get all of the credit other than men because even though man go to work and make money and women do too work. Women stay home and prepare food and clean the house and do laundry. Without women you wouldn't have a good Delicious hot...

Should women have rights? [ATTEMPT 2}

STeveisCoCoL

| My previous attempt at putting this up was reply-bombed by somebody who "accidentally" entered the debate without any intension of competing. | Right. Keep in mind, when I say 'rights', I mean the sort of thing, like, the right to work, the right to travel. Those sort of things aren't rights. Rights are things that are unnaturally imposed on others for "humanitarian" purposes, which has no basis on reality. This isn't a matter of freedom, either. It's a matter of what's good for this cou...

SportsFanatic13

Videogames aren't as bad as people may see them. For starters, it seems that videogames are always the scapegoat for the blame when something happens. This also goes for people who find videogames to be a waste of time, or to those who find videogames (insert obscure statement here)....

The United States congress should be dismantled and replaced with a direct democratic voting system

Capitalistslave
Kove_Ducote

Basically, the system would be that the people themselves would be the law-makers. There would still be a president, and (s)he would be the commander-in-chief and can veto legislation brought out by the people, who then still need a 2/3 majority to surpass the president's veto. The supreme court would still exist and can declare things unconstitutional as they do now. Basically it would work the same as it does now, just we are replacing congress with the people. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2...

Kritiks are not allowed. qualified immunity is the status of certain government officials, in this case police officers, in which lawsuits regarding civil damage when the official is on duty and performing their duty are dismissed as long as they qualify certain criteria. The criteria that a policeman would have to meet would be that their conduct does n...
