As an American Citizen are you entitled to Food, Shelter & Water?

Shmac07

It is my firm belief that no as an American you are entitled to nothing more than the Air. Food Shelter and Water each have a Value to them, so you must in one form or another earn those items. Yes as a baby you cannot earn anything so that means the responsibility of a child resides upon the parents. I am not fully against programs to aide those struggling to meet these items, but whatever individual seeking food, shelter, water should be REQUIRED to perform a Service or Labor to Earn these...

Regulated prostitution should be legalised in the UK

Prostitution should be legalised in the UK and should be regulated to ensure that all members of the transaction are protected. This would reduce the risk of prostitution for workers who are perfectly entitled to do what they want with their own body....

Is non conformism a better way of living life?

TuanHamdi

Conformism is letting others interpret how they should live their life, therefore, letting so many people with different and often sick standards let you show how to live your life is a miserable way to do so. [I am new here, I want to improve my debating skills. So I wanted to start with things on my mind others would dismiss as "nonsense".]...

Should people be vegetarian?

kahenawilhite
grannyannay

I think that people should be vegetarian for multiple reasons. There"s the moral reason; animals in the meat industry are treated horribly and you save about 100 animals every year you"re vegetarian. There"s the environmental reason; the best thing an individual can do to help the environment is become vegetarian. The amount of water and transportation(gasses), machines who need to be made is incredible....

What do you think about the current safety situation of western Europe? My opinion is that crime rate is higher year by year because immigration and social laws are not set up for our safety and decent life....

Is sexual orientation a choice?

Addy44
God_is_awesome

Sexual orientation is not a choice. You cannot control it. It is intrinsically in you, and you fall in love with whoever you fall in love with. I'd like to start off by giving you the definition of "sexual orientation." The dictionary definition is, "one's natural preference in sexual partners; predilection for homosexuality, heterosexuality, or bisexuality." (This definition can be found here: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sexual-orientation?s=t) This definition is not exactly ho...

Should abortion be illegal?

kelsgirl98
persianimmortal

Abortion is a huge controversy between people. I believe that abortion is a choice of the women that are pregnant. If you are financially not able to take care of a child, to the point that you can't take care of yourself, then sure. If you were raped, then sure. I would much rather have them give the child up for adoption, but if we made abortion illegal, we would run out of area for the children up for adoption. I prefer women not get an abortion, but again, it's entirely their choice. Talk to...

The legal penalties for drunk driving have gotten too severe.

JohnFx
Rocstar293

I'll preface this by saying that I don't drive drunk, and have never been accused of it by law enforcement. I also don't favor legalizing it completely and think it should remain a punishable offense. My position is just that this particular crime has at least one very active lobby against it (MADD) and it is such an emotional issue that politicians have gotten overzealous with the prescribed punishments. My position is that the penalties for drunk driving should be no harsher than those for...

Transgender people should be allowed to use the restroom matching their gender identity.

Luma
karlireynolds23

Trans people should be allowed to use the restroom matching their gender identity, regardless of anybody else's position of the issue. They should also be allowed to have a restroom free of discrimination and prejudice. After all, they just need to pee. This is an open debate, which will be as follows: Round 1, small introduction to both positions. Round 2, arguments. Rounds 3-5, rebuttals....
