Should the NFL abolish most of the tackle rules?

Now of course you cant just try to break somebody ankle but I think that the NFL was in its prime and the most entertaining when you saw big hits all the time. And the players know what they are getting into when they sign that contract to play for a team. After all the point of football is to score points and hit the other teams players in the mouth....

On balance, human nature is more selfish than altruistic.

Bernie Supporters Should Vote For Hillary

civiero

Hello, and I thank my opponent for accepting my challenge. Today we will be debating whether or not Bernie Supporters should vote for Hillary Clinton in November. I will be arguing for the pro-side, that Bernie supporters should back Hillary. Hillary Clinton is not perfect, no candidate is. However, she is by far the best choice in this election. This election is one in which Hillary Clinton is facing off against Donald Trump, a man who has no prior political experience, and who has consisten...

Police officers should be legally required to wear body cameras while on duty

civiero
Bman630

I will argue that police officers should be legally required to wear body cameras while on duty. Since purchasing body cameras for law enforcement agencies would be a public expense, I will accept the burden of proof in this debate. Sources can and should be posted in text after the arguments they are being used to support. -Power and authority should be accompanied by accountability. This is something that Sir Robert Peel recognized in his principles of policing which were developed to guide...

Tird wave Feminism has gone too far.

Kycam1
StatsAndFacts

In this debate I will support the opinion that Third wave feminism has gone too far. While the first and second wave focused on general equality issues. Third wave feminism has halted and has begun to look for ways to give advantages to one half of the population while attacking the second half. This Marxist ideology has stopped looking for actual cases of injustice and inequality throughout the world. Feminism once having achieved its goals of equality in the western world has continued to argu...

Did the American Invasion of Iraq make the nation of Iraq better in the End?

alexmann152

First, I'd like to clarify that this debate isn't about the Bush administration's justifications for the Iraq War (those being revenge for 9/11 and the prevention of another terrorist attack like 9/11 with supposed Weapons of Mass Destruction which were found only in extremely limited quantities) . I'm focusing more on the consequences of the invasion in regards to the Iraqi people. Second, I'm not too familiar with the etiquette of a proper debate, so, while I encourage my opponent to remain pr...

Should Gun Control Be Implemented Into American Law

Dabate101
Edril

Beginning Argument: The United States has 88.8 guns per 100 people, or about 270,000,000 guns, which is the highest total and per capita number in the world. 22% of Americans own one or more guns (35% of men and 12% of women). America's pervasive gun culture stems in part from its colonial history, revolutionary roots, frontier expansion, and the Second Amendment, which states: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Ar...
