Let's Balance the Budget Together

BobTurner
atoy120

Here's how this will work. I'm a liberal and therefore I want to balance the budget with revenue increases. Conservatives want spending cuts. Therefore, as the resident liberal, I will be proposing spending cuts each round, while Con -- who should be a conservative -- will be proposing new revenue. The voters, in the end, should choose the person who reduces the deficit by the widest margin. First spending cut: End the war in Afghanistan....

i watch so many religious lunatics said to the public in youtube about their views and opinions about aids and how is it a bad thing, i find it to be a total nonesense on how they say its evil especially the pastors and crazy popes who's chanting this **** and saying it in a way like they have tuberculosis "(it is an unseen consequences.......---by God!!??)" But in my point of view AIDS is simply something that we can only consider in 2 ways; 1.) it is a disease that is communicable and condoms...

Dwint

Hello! This is the second debate is a series called "The usual arguments" where I take the most common arguments against atheism and try to debunk them. In this debate, I will try to prove objective morality doesn't exist. objective morality - the idea that a certain system of ethics or set of moral judgments is not just true according to a person's subjective opinion, but factually true[1] This debate is impossible to accept.

Is abortion ok in some situations? Or is it totally wrong?

Cin
RoyalSon

I believe abortion is alright in certain situations. Say, if a woman got raped, then she is allowed to have an abortion. Or if the baby is going to be born with a fatal disease, or you know it only has such a period of time to live, why would you cause it pain? It's better to save his/her misery than to have to put them through that....

Hi, Wylted. I saw Zarroette make a stupid comment here:http://www.debate.org/forums/miscellaneous/topic/40590/ Post #2.Since you said that you would defend whatever she said, I would like to take up that opportunity.

One year's compulsory porn-shooting for all women who reach the age of majority.

Generic-Name
Jifpop09

Women are allowed to shoot one hour in one week in order to not have to shoot for the next 3 weeks. They cannot shoot more than one hour in one week.This will count as work experience for any job, of course. This will be unpaid, instead they get fringe benefits and all transport is paid for by the taxpayer's money which will be i...

Public schools are just a good as private ones.

CoolPeppers12
RinoD

Many people, not all, say private schools are simply better than private schools. This is a false statement because not all public schools are good. For example:One parent or two could decide to send their child to a nice private school. Later, the kid turns out he found drugs and all, and becomes sick and dies. While if they had sent him/her to the public school, that might have never happened. However, it is the child's decisition...

Opinion on the wage gap?

maddiem214
liberty4freedom

For a research paper, my topic is the gap between wages of men and women. I personally think equal pay would be ideal. As of 2013, full time working women earned about $706 weekly, while men earned $860. What is your opinion on the gap?...
