The Federal Reserve Should Be abolished:

There are a few terms to this debate that you should agree to before accepting the challenge, they're really simple I just have to state them to resolve a few issues. First of all you are not allowed to "drop out" of the debate, once you accept the challenge you must respond to my arguments in their entirety within 3 days, that way if you start to lose you don't get to flake out on me. Secondly, google documents are not a conduct violation, you could just as easily as I can star...

Tips at restaurants should be done away with for minimum wage and employee benefits..

I don't believe that restaurants should be forced to pay their employees minimum wage or give them benefits such as healthcare or dental insurance, due to different reasons on both topics. The average gross revenue for small businesses is usually less than $50,000 a year. From any source I could find most restaurants make quite a bit more gross income than small businesses, so let's say double the amount and say that on average restaurants make a gross income of $100,000 per year. Strictly from...

In this debate, I am going to be arguing that "trickle down" economics has been a failure to the poor and middle class.Let's set some terms before we begin.Rules:1) No trolling or insults.2) If you forfeit, you automatically lose.3) You don't have to cite sources for common knowledge, although it would be preferred. If something is not common knowledge, cite it. A general rule of thum...

Stop cutting down

Zeleboba

To me it seems that deforestation is the step to the past. In some period of human evolution, we had to need for the timber. And I see the timber industry only in case of cutting down of sick trees and shoots, which hinder to growth of normal trees. So, if people are going to prohibit uncontrolled deforestation we will win in nearest future through elaboration of new useful technology's!...

Should we stop hunting Lions?

I think we should stop hunting lions because the population of lions was really high in the 1990-1950 (100,000 to 400,000).Now there is about 16,500 to 47,000 lions left in the wild. Lions don't do anything to us, they just want to avoid us but we provoke them and it get them angry and they start killing people because of us provoking them. We kill them for no reason sometimes just for fun or just to keeps it's head as a trophy. Heard about Cecil the Lion, Scientist were studying that Lion un...

Capitalism Vs. Socalism

BicoulourOcean94
kyleflanagan97

Capitalism is better than Socialism in many ways. First and foremost Capitalism gives power to the people and Socialism gives power to the Government. I hate the Idea of people living in poverty and going to bed hungry. Socialism is not the answer to these problems. The distribution of wealth does not work, it rewards people for minimum amounts of work, eventually you will run out of other people's money to use. Capitalism rewards the people for working hard. I like to think of these two ideals...
