The full text of the resolution is "Although Israel's position in the West Bank is mutually undesirable for Israel and Palestinians, Israel has no choice in the matter, because there are no reasonable alternatives." Cons job will be to suggest an alternative solution that does not increase the risk of harm to Israel, Israeli citizens, or the Jewish People. This debates definition of unreasonable includes, but is not limited to, anything that results in that. My opening points assume three opt...

That the CIA should rig elections in post Arab-Spring countries to ensure the moderates win

larztheloser

Challenger is Affirming. "Rig" can mean a number of things and I am happy to let the challenger define it within the clear intent of the topic. This is my first debate here, and I'm more used to Australs and WUDC style debating than LD, but hopefully my arguments will be clear anyway....

Gay Marriage

FourTrouble

This is my first debate on this site, but I feel very strongly about this topic. Anything goes, as long as it doesn't violate website rules. Why is it that people are so against gay marriage? I find no reason to disapprove of it, seeing as it makes people happy. It causes no harm, and freedom is clearly stated in the constitution. Also, this debate is under politics not religion. Please keep that in mind....

if a healthy infant can be saved instead of aborted later in pregnancy... it should be requried

dairygirl4u2c
Stephen_Hawkins

in cases where mother's life is at risk, but the healthy baby can be safely removed instead of aborted... this should be required. after six months or so, abortion in the US is restricted to only cases involving health of the mother. (to be sure, this includes much abuse for 'mental health' etc) if even a healthy baby MUST be aborted to save the mother, msot would agree it's the right thing to do. to be sure, however.... healthy babies are too often aborted in the name of saving the mother,...

High-speed rail should receive federal government subsidy in-place of current subsidies on highways

nyyfan
ConservativePolitico

My belief is that federal government subsidies on high-speed rail would benefit the United States greater than the continual subsidy of the current highway system. The first round is acceptance, the second is stating your argument, third round attempt to dispute claims made by the opponent in second round. I lowered the max number of characters to keep arguments concise. I look forward to a good debate, good luck....

Obamacare

I am strongly against Obamacare. There may not be a whole lot that I know about it, but I know enough that it is completely pointless. It is making insurance raise a dramastic amount and there are several people even losing their insurance. Let's see what you have to say about it PRO....

Pick your own issue.

Willoweed
shift4101

Basically the idea is look at my profiles issues list and pick a issue you want to debate me on. State the issue your position and either make your arguments or let me make mine first. However Due to the fact that I am currently in two debates about the border fence/immigration I will not accept debating anyone else about the border fence/immigration. Have fun....
