Hello and thank you to whomever accepts this debate. I would first like to set the round format: R1: Acceptance and Pro arguments R2: Neg Rebuttal and Pro rebuttal R3: More Rebuttal/Rebuild R4: Appeal to judges and final words This is going to be a defensive debate meaning that I will take the side of the Con and will be attacking the Pro's arguments. Let's remember the Ad Hominem logical fallacy: An argument directed at a person and not the position they are maintaining is not a va...

Free Trade

Capitalistslave
colester112

I am taking the position against free trade. Burden of proof is shared equally. Pro may begin their argument in round 1 if they wish, but I ask that they waive round 4 since I am not using round 1 for debate, in order to keep the rounds used for debate equal. In round 4, if you use round 1 for debate, you should say something like "I am waiving this round as agreed upon". Otherwise, you could use round 1 for acceptance, agreement of definitions, and a brief overview of your position, but n...

America Cannot Be Made Great Again Unless It Nationalizes Housing

Sidetrack
RonPaulConservative

At the time of writing of the this debate argument, America is 20 Trillion in debt to foreigners. That means you and everyone in your family, including your children, owes $60,000 dollars to the rest of the world. And you thought you were paying for things when you left the store. This debt occurs when America imports more than it exports. Many of these imports will end up in the landfill in a few years. What are the foreigners trading them for? They are traded for American land, American r...

Stimulus spending should be done in current economic conditions

SeriousThreat
RonPaulConservative

It is argued that most of the developed world central banks have already "shot" all their power in regards monetary policy and State should take more responsibility in regards fiscal policy to prop up their own nation's economy and world economy as a whole. So the debate is about that should governments make bigger deficits to ignite some "fire" for their economies and return to faster growth world or not? This is Pro's side debut debate, so inexperienced debaters are more welcomed to join...

Should we all become vegan ?

Blueberry6
Castaway

People have been saying lately that everyone should become vegan because animals are getting hurt. But most animals eat other animals, so they say that other animals can eat meat but not humans. Of course there are more humans than most species but soon there would be more animals because we are not eating them. Soon the world would overpopulate with animals and the animals would eat all of the fruits and vegetables. Then humans would starve to death and become extinct. Just because they hate se...

Leftists who shop at traditional/capitalist businesses instead of cooperatives are hypocrites.

Capitalistslave
CosmoJarvis

Definitions: Leftist: For this debate, leftist is anyone who is at least as left-wing as a social democrat, and as far left as a communist.

Traditional/capitalist business: Any business which is owned by an individual or a few individuals at the top of a hierarchical chain of command for the business; they also make the decisions for the business. Cooperative: Business which lacks a hierarchy,...
