while homestead exemptions should exist, property taxes should be our primary focus on tax revenue

linate
distraff

while homestead exemptions should exist, property taxes should be our primary focus on tax revenue the primary source of income should come from property tax in excess of one's own personal property. and the homestead examption should be nothing for cheaper land, but for excessively large properties, it should only be a reduction. if you can't afford to own an excessively large property, tough luck. and of course again propety outside one's own, should be taxed largely. this all creates d...

The Illuminati no longer exists, and the rumours about the Illuminati are false.

SirMaximus
Wylted

At Wylted's request, I challenge him to this debate. (NOTE: I already debated this against Burningsnow. As of writing, the debate with Burningsnow is in the voting period.) (The following text is taken almost verbatim from my old debate. I may or may not paraphrase more loosely as the rounds go on, depending on how this goes.) Conspiracy theorists often assert that the Illuminati is evil, anti-Christian, trying to hide their symbol(s) in pop culture today, controls everyone in pop culture...

Drug Use in the US Should be Fully Legalized

Siege
Mr.Lincoln

I argue that drug use in the US should be fully legalized, legalizing all forms of drugs, not simply marijuana. I have the burden of proof to convince voters that fully legalizing all drugs makes logical sense.First round is acceptance, 5th round will be closing statements with no new arguments or rebuttals brought forward. ...

This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts Are Immoral!

Ajabi
kbub

As-Salam-o-Alikum! This debate entitled: This House Believes That On Balance Homosexual Acts are Immoral is a re-do of one of the first debates I had from my old account. I lost miserably to kbub and I would like to see if my refined argument can now hold any ground. Now I believe that I should clarify the rules, the order, and some principle definitions which will be referred to throughout the debate. 1. The first argumentation rounds of both parties must be positive material only, no...

agennarelli

Hi debaters. This is my first time about to debate. I'm a future Lawyer, so I wanted to test my debating strength. I'm a university freshman by the way, starting the 25th of this month. As I do with all my debating, I like to give backgrounds in order for my opponents to have an understanding. Background: Anyways, I was on the public bus today on my way home from a long day at my university working out issues, and sadly, a woman was beating her child on the bus. He was a little boy, probab...

The Universe is ~13.8 Billion Years Old

RainbowDash52

To whomever accepts this debate: I. Round 1 will be for stating your argument, Rounds 2, 3, 4, and 5 will be for polite debate, with brief closing remarks made at the end of Round 5. II. I expect the usage of reliable sources throughout this debate. Examples of reliable sources include textbooks, scientific lectures, .edu sites, and so on. Holy books are not reliable sources as all arguments based on them tend to be circular in nature. III. We will not be debating how the Universe came...

More people would patronize Burger King if there wages were higher.

metri9696
Warik

If McDonalds were to keep wages at their current rate, versus if Burger King raised wages by a dollar or two, how more willing would the "social customer" be to patronize Burger King versus McDonalds to make a statement that one supports "livable wages" for employees. While McDonalds would continue having more customers than Burger King, the amount of people visiting Burger King would increase....

This does not include primitive tribes. I am also not saying we should force everyone to become vegan, but I am saying that if everybody in the world was vegan, we would be much better off and the world would be a much more loving place....
