Blob

Unknowingly we are exposed to deadly GMOs pr genetically modified organisms when we eat at fast food chains such as McDonalds. When we dine in places such as McDonalds, we eat meat that was harmed and lived horrific lives. As Americans and as human beings I think that it is our right to know exactly what these corporations are doing to our food. I think that there should be something telling us that the food contain deadly GMOs our that the meat is treated inhumanly so we can decide for ourselve...

Old_Saxon
Themeaman909

As most of you know, this topic has become favorable among many as a debate topic, but has been debated in a way that ignores every single logical standpoint, bias becoming the driving force for the argument. I am neutral in this, as I know in the beginning of legalization of all substances that are naturally occurring most people will abuse them.

Static Tax Rate

TheTruth77
kasper31208

Static tax is a fundamentally fair system both logically and morally unlike progressive tax which is unfair and effectively dis-incentivises society to be high income earners.

Without doing so we are sitting ducks waiting to go into poverty....

The Federal Reserve actually did the opposite, only 16 years after the Federal Reserve was established, the stock market crashed.
