Barnabas
ken2esq

I simply hope to, in this third debate, find an opponent who will not forfeit the debate. To begin, I will repost my opening statement: "I will argue for the advocation of pure capitalism with the only socialism being in the providing of very minimal needs to those who need it (i.e. Education, Food, Water, Shelter, Healthcare, etc)." As for Round 2, I will probably post my argument from the other two in hopes of finding a counter-argument....

greatman777
McPherson

i believe that being gay is moral because it isn't a choice. notice that most people that are against it just don't understand it and never will. think about it. unless you are gay how are you going to tell me whether or not i made the decision to be gay. as for the bible, it has been edited and reedited so many times it just doesn't even have any credibility anymore. not to mention that every supposed opposition to homosexuality in the bible is merely and opposition to immoral acts that would b...

AlextheYounga
IveGotUrOuts

The Federal Reserve is a cartel. It was organized in secret by people who worked under J.P. Morgan, Rockefeller, and Rothchilds. It was created in secret and pushed through using bribed senators in an effort to benefit the bankers such as J.P. Morgan.This system causes the hidden tax of inflation and causes most of our major debt today. The debate will be over the question of "Should the Federal Reserve be abolished" I will be for abolishing the Federal Reserve. ...

LaissezFaire
feverish

Resolution: The minimum wage is, overall, a good policy. I will be defending the position that it is, overall, a bad policy. (That is, a minimum wage having any economic effect, not a minimum wage too low to have any effect at all). 1) There exists a marginal productivity (Amount of revenue that worker brings their employer per hour of work) for workers 2) Because companies compete with each other for workers, a worker's wage will be close...

brett.winstead
TheDarkMuffin
