Auster

It is important to lift the Cuban embargo in order to allow the United States gets the access to Cuba"s medical biotechnology.

Ending the embargo on these products could make life better for millions...

Unregulated Capitalism is a moral system, and is perfect as it is

Boris7698
joshuar1996

Many people support are pro capitalism with the proviso "it's not perfect but it works", and that it should be regulated. I claim on the contrary that laissez-faire capitalism, unregulated capitalism, is perfect, and is the best political system. And that there should be no regulation whatsoever. No ECC, FDA, FED etc. And no anti-trust laws. There should be only three things that are responsibilities of the government: the army, the police, and a judicial system. My argument is simple:...

The government should not run schools, all schools should be private.

Just as food is not provided for free, yet is a necessity for life which must be earned by parents to feed their child, the same should apply to education. From the financial aspect, not all private schools would be expensive, just like not all grocery stores are expensive. Schools in poorer neighbourhoods would cost less, the price being set proportionately by Free Market. Cheaper schools will not have fancy facilities but still can provide good instruction. Education only requires enthusias...

The mentally handicapped people don't promote to society, so they should be eliminated.

Not to long ago my opponent had this vile resolution on offer. I commented on how disgusting the notion is, and how perverse someone would have to be to buy into such a notion. Mr. Fernandito agreed to debate the topic with me ( I know, I don't know what they were thinking either) and asked to keep in initital intro he started the last debate with him. Who am I to deny the man tickets to his own funeral. So below is the intro that Pro set out with when last debating the resoluti...

Murder Is A Good Thing

BryanMullinsNOCHRISTMAS2
CosmoJarvis

Murder is a good thing if you just let it happen If someone wants to kill you protectively, Then if you just let it happen no one else will be hurt. If you fight the murder, then its not the killer's fault, it's your fault. If you DO NOT fight it, then it IS NOT against humanity. It's actually for humanity because if we prevent murder then there is the problem of overproduction of people. We won't go extinct, we're the farthest from it. In fact, we have over 7 billion people in the world....

The flavour of the meat you choose to eat, is irrelevant. We are all heterosexual.

Sonofcharl
Pest

Pro will argue that. Apart from a very small number of people who are physically different. Everyone else is heterosexual. Woman produces the egg, man produces the sperm. How consenting adults choose to gratify their sexual urges, is irrelevant. Rules: 5 open rounds. Use your own brain power. No referencing other peoples work/theories. 100 words max, per round. (Not 8000 characters)....

Are there really more than 2 genders (excluding hermafrodites etc.)?

brycecook12
salaud

People have made up genders and sexualities that don't exist, like it or not you are either male or female. Sexualities do get a bit fuzzier but not by much; this is the one I don't really get, there can only be Straight, gay, and bisexual right?...
