U.S. Ctizens Have And Ought To Have The Right To Bear And Keep Arms

Oxymoron
malcolmxy

In this debate, my opponent and I will argue the accuracy of the resolution (The people of the United States have and ought to have the right to bear and keep arms) as it relates to U.S. law. Rules:1.) The first round for Con is: acceptance and a positive argument.2.) As I am the holder of the burden of proof, it stands to reason that Con will not make any positive arguments (on...

President Obama is bad 4 the US

Mr.Cotton-Balls
brendizzle29

I am in strong affirmation that, President Obama is bad 4 the United States of America. President obama is a hypocrite he cast blame on big spenders saying there to blame 4 the economic situation. Then he has a 6 million dollar party when he takes office. He will not salute the flag of the united states cause he says there is no opportunity in America but after 2 generations the obamas have come from nothing to the most influential black family in the world. Obama has little experience and his s...

Should the United States of America join the Commonwealth Realms?

RPOFA
Jifpop09

It's time for the United States to join the Commonwealth. Membership in the Commonwealth would facilitate the kind of globalization that is in the American national interest, and it would serve as a hedge against the emergence of a less benign international order based on civilizational power politics. In return, United States membership would offer the Commonwealth a much-needed shot in the arm in terms of resources and ideas th...

Extreme danger in legalizing same-sex marriage in society

Tatarize
shwayze

You asked in, http://www.debate.org/debates/Same-Sex-Marriage/1/ comments... "do people not see the extreme danger in legalizing same-sex marriage in society?" -- I contend that there is nothing to see. I contend that there is no danger to legalizing same-sex marriage. Further, there is much benefit to giving people equal rights under the law. The danger is in not giving people equal rights: it causes unrest....

Children need to be protected from the gays and their homosexual agenda.

Freeman
twsurber

The Actual Resolution: Gay couples should not be allowed to adopt children. Gay couples should be allowed to adopt children since this is a policy that would be in the best interests of children, families, and society as a whole. Further, arbitrarily denying certain couples the ability to adopt children because of their sexual orientation is simply unacceptably detrimental to the aims of a civil society, and it is a position that is perpetuated by nothing other than flagrant discrimination...

DDO Members Union (Pro) vs. DDO Revolution Party (Con)

bubbatheclown
Jifpop09

The Debate.org Members Union (AKA DDO Members Union) is an organization that was founded on March 1, 2014. It was formerly known as the Troll Hunting Society, but after an hour or two of its existence its name was changed to the current name. The Union was inspired by Jifpop's "DDO Revolution Party," but it is an entirely separate organization. Anybody, regardless of race, age, gender, sexual orientation, and political stances, may join the Union simply by saying they wish to join. The DDO Mem...

Multiculturism causes racism

PrinceOfTheFire
brian_eggleston

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzLECtFT4aU I got a comment in a previosu debate stating that multi-culturism was the only form to stop racial hatred I say that it is false, because only when two or more ethnic groups are forced to share the same living space and resources, racial hatred can occur. Thus liberals have it backwards: It is MULTICULTURISM that causes racial hatred I put forward the following proofs 1) Sweden before and after the open-borders police started in 1996. Before 199...

Abortions are morally wrong.

Freeman
mongeese

I will be negating the resolution that abortions are morally wrong, and since most abortions occur in the first trimester this debate will only focus on abortions that take place during that time period. Moral philosophers, theologians, and medical practitioners have argued about the ethics behind abortion for quite some time. And many deeply ethical people have come to view abortion as being morally reprehensible. However, most of the arguments against abortion can be shown to be fallacious...

Sweatshops are ethical

mongoose
Danielle

I would like to thank my opponent for taking this debate. Contention 1: It improves lives Sweatshops don't cause harm. They provide better job options than the average job in these third-world countries [1]. They are also voluntary contracts between the employer and the employee. Nobody is forcing them to take these jobs. Now, the source mentions a possiblity of the Chinese government forcing people to work in sweatshops. If this is true, then these are not the core idea of sweatshops, and t...
