Psilocybin ("magic") mushrooms should be legal in the United States.

Here's one for the Conservatives ;) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Thomas Jefferson once said, "If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." Today, the manufacturing, buying, posession and distribution of psilocybin mushrooms is illegal in all but 2 states: Florida and New Mexico. I support the legalization of thi...

Gay Marraige should be legal and accepted in all of the USA.

Before I begin my argument, I would like to ask everyone who is voting in this debate to vote not based upon your own opinion. Please do not vote for one of us just because your opinions support one of us. Vote for the person who advanced their arguements better and rebutted their opponent's arguments better. Thank you. Now to the actual debate. My first argument is that gay people are still people. Just because one part of them is different, and they prefer people of the same gender, does...

Should the US continue to have Welfare?

Noah25
Danielle

People in our country are living off the tax payers money the people who actually have a job! I'm sick of it and it needs to stop! Only those with disabilities should have the privilege to be on welfare! I see people handicapped in fast food restaurants and other places working, but those who have the ability to go out and do something choose not to. I'm sick and tired of it!!!...

I think that Debate.org should have a minimum age requirement to join.

I think their should be a minimum age requirement to join debate.org. While I believe some of the minors on here are good at debating, I think some of the content is inappropriate. Now I do not think it has to be 18, but I do believe that 10 or 11 is far too young for such subjets as abortion and things of a sexual nature that I have seen on here. If there is not going to be a minimum age requirement I believe certain topics should be blocked if a debater is under the required age. Although I be...

Steps should be taken to preserve dying languages.

Vi_Veri
DrAlexander

I will make the introduction to this debate simple: I believe we should preserve dying languages for the following reasons: 1. Archaeological aid. 2. Anthropological aid. 3. Communication with cultures already in existence in an easier fashion. I will leave it up to my opponent to determine why this is not enough and will expand on it in my second argument....

God is holy

Danielle

Ok yes its hard to start an argument but as a catholic i am very offended when people try to say God doesnt exist because how can you prove that He doesnt He created you and me its as simple as that and another thing we know He exists through the Bible the Prophets and through His son. plus there are multiple sitings of Him and His son and the Mother of God so why do people think that He isnt real when throughout history every little detail about it started out with God creating the world. i mea...

Abortion is right

mariahsaywhaaa
HatedvsLoved

Abortion is not wrong, you have to think about the people that are in the situation of being raped? If you were raped and a pregnancy was a result of that would you really want to have that baby?! What if there was someone that was raped by someone in there family and that resulted in a pregnancy, do you think they should actually have to give birth to that baby? Not to mention what if you were completely under age? a child having a child. In situations like that abortion is completely understan...

I will not get a challenger for this debate.

My opponent's stance in this debate is 'Pro', which mean that he/she believes that I wouldn't get a challenger for this debate. Clearly, this is incorrect....
