Resolved: The United States Federal Government should establish a Nation Health Care System.


I affirm the resolution that the USFG should create a universal health care system similar to Britain's NHS. I believe that this will lead to a healthier society, a more productive work force, and a more stable economy. With this plan, people will not have to work as much to pay off outrages medical bills. Since they will not be working so much, they will be better workers at their current jobs; "A Happy employee is a good employee." Lastly, with less people in debt, the keynesian savings ratio...

Mandatory health insurance participation (through private insurance companies) for all Americans.


In my opinion, the best way to make health insurance accessible and affordable for all Americans, is to require that all Americans purchase health insurance. According to the The National Coalition on Health Care... Nearly 47 million Americans, or 16 percent of the population, were without health insurance in 2005. Nearly 82 million people – about one-third of the population below the age of 65 spent a portion of either 2002 or 2003 without health coverage. In 2005, 27.4 million work...

People who are obese by their own neglegence should not say how much they despise thin people.


Obese inviduals who are obese by their own laziness and negligence really have no business complaining about thin people who are fit and in shape. Please do not misunderstand. I understand that some heavy people can maintain a healthy weight and some cannot even help it. But is it really fair to beat down on normal sized people? You should not blame the person you envy because they are healthy and fit. It is not their fault. It is simply a feeble mind trying to express the fact that you let your...

Vegetarianism is harmful to the human body, and is wrong


First, I must say that if you are a participant in vegetarianism, that's your choice and I support your act of free will. I will in no way make an attempt to disengage you from your practices. Anyways, on to the debate. To start off, any dietitian will tell you that meat is an essential part of anyone's diet. People are omnivores we eat BOTH meat, and vegetation. Our bodies weren't made to live without meat. It contains a substantial amount of protein which we need to grow (especially us teen...

Blue-Frosted Cake Donuts


I am against blue-frosted cake donuts. Before I begin the debate, I would like to say that the spelling of "Donut" is merely the shortened term of "Doughnut" in persuasive American English, and that a "Donut" has the same overall definition and description as a "Doughnut". Don't even try to nail me on that one. Also I would like to remind my opposition that this is a one-round debate, so throw everything you have to say out there. As I was saying, I am against blue-frosted cake donuts, for...

Smoking isn't Good for You


Smoking is not good for because smoking can lead to death or lung cancer. Smoking kills your lungs. Smoking is one of the worst things kids or adults can do to their bodies. Yet every single day about 3,900 kids between the ages 12 and 17 start smoking. Most middle school students don't smoke — only about 1 in 16 does. And most high school students don't smoke either — about 1 in 5 does (that means 4 out of 5 don't). Smoking and tobacco use can cause cancer and heart disease. smoking and tobacco...

Moral Argument: Meat Eating


The consumption of animal flesh by modern human beings is morally wrong. Humans have moved beyond the necessity of killing and eating animals for food. We have socially evolved beyond eating other animals. In ages gone by, humans have had to struggle against the wilderness. Every scrap of food was precious, and every hunt could mean life or death for the tribe or family. Eating animals was an absolute necessity for survival. But today, modern humans living in developed countries are...

Cremations and burials should be made illegal


Cremating dead bodies releases huge amounts of nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, particulate matter, mercury, hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen chloride, heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants into the atmosphere, thus making a significant contribution to global warming. At the same time, burying corpses is no more environmentally friendly as this method of disposal results in vast quantities of hazardous embalming fluids leeching into the soil. Furthermore, entire forests...
