swimming is a sport where you compete against yourself not other people, so it pushes you to do better than you did before. and if you swim you have less of a chance to get injured so you don't have to retire as soon as you would in soccer. plus swimming is the fastest way to burn calories....

Legalization of Gay Marriage

eganbrooks100
Zarroette

Gay Marriage should definitely be legalized for many positive reasons. Firstly, our era has evolved so much with accepting black people and removing the slavery laws. But how have so many places around the world not legalized gay marriage? All humans should be able to love and feel attached to people regardless of sex. Marriage is defined as a commitment between a man and a woman but should we really let these definitions take control over basic human rights? No! Why do people keep referring t...

They should lift the limits on whip use in a horse race

When I've seen races in South America with no limit on whip use the horses go much faster and its much more exciting. On top of that its hypocritical as its common nowadays for horses to get a whipping in the stables before a race to wind them up for the race - i know I work in a stables. So why no leave it to the judgement of the jockey - some horses don't need much whipping but some need to be flogged pretty hard....

I've tried to do this debate for the longest amount of time and every single time I've found someone to debate with, something came up and it prevented me from doing any round of the debate. 1st time - Malware virus 2nd time - Computer broke and I could not access another computer I do not believe that college athletes should be played for playing a sport like professional athletes do since they're only playing for a school team rather than a national team. I look forward to this debat...

The death penalty should be legal in all US states.

bluetree653
Hayd

For some, the death penalty could be less worse than jail. The death penalty is only used when absolutely needed, and sometimes it is the only rational/moral option. Even if a criminal was released from the death penalty/jail, it would be very hard for them to make a living. The death penalty can be painless. The death penalty provides disclosure for victims. If the death penalty is not in use, then America will end up spending more money trying to contain criminals from the...
