Should Harriet Tubman replace Andrew Jackson on the 20$ bill?

Janemarie25
CommunistDog

There is absolutely no reason to replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill. Andrew Jackson has been on the twenty dollar bill since 1928, so why change it now? Jackson was the first president to be elected by popular sentiment, and he did so three times! He was also a war hero as a major general in the War of 1812. He was also the first president who was previously a prisoner of war. Jackson wasn't born into wealth either, he worked his way up from nothing. The argumen...

Death Penalty- (Brief, Quick, Debate)

BrownIsBest
theisticscuffles

Death is truly an unusually severe punishment. Unusual in it's pain, unusual in it's suffering, it's finality, and it's enormity. Because of the nature of the death penalty, it treats those humans who are on death row as non humans toyed with and discarded. No matter what the crime, death should never be the choice. If anything, the worse punishment should be a life sentence. Rather than death, we should im...

Progressive Taxation

NGEpical
ethancentric

Progressive taxation should be allowed for these reasons: First off, the rich have it better off, we can look at them like a well developed, rich in infrastructure society, like the U.S. Most of the world depends on the U.S for exports because the U.S is so well established. This is how we should view this debate, the poor depend on the better-off, better-established rich class to survive and prosper, therefore we should tax the rich more than the other classes (progressive tax)...

Is Russia Better Than Japan

SovietRussia
Midnight1131

I believe Russia has the better economy because they are one of the leading exports of both natural gases and iron. Another thing that would make Russia's economy better is the fact that there is so much unused land towards the east of Russia, which allows room for growth and other things that would require that much land and property....

Social Darwinism

themightyindividual
iqpiblog

Debate perimeters: This debate is on the subject of social Darwinism, the economic idea and philosophy that people act individually and compete within the market for resources and in doing so create wealth. Those who create the most wealth have done so by their own free will and those who have created the least have also done so by their own free will. This debate will be argued using fact and reason, no emotional opinions or subjectively heavy thoughts are used in the debate. To my o...

abbygm

And we can celebrate when we have a government that has earned back the trust of the people it serves... when we have a government that honors our Constitution and stands up for the values that have made America, America: economic freedom, individual liberty, and personal responsibility. -john Boehner because I agree with john Boehner on this point and because I believe that an individual is far more likely to succeed when economically free, I stand firmly resolved: in the realm of economics...
