Commondebator

Over the past decade it is obvious that countless of illegal aliens have crossed our borders with means of "having a better life." By crossing that border what are they impending on honest tax paying American citizens? A. Higher taxes to support USFG organizations - Puts pressure on US economy - Takes away from police officers, city workers that make our life the American lifestyle B. Possibility of terrorism - If any Mexican citizen what keeps away the ISIS agents and the Al Qaeda terrori...

Do Post 9/11 securities outweigh the losses of personal freedom?

Firstly, I am researching this topic in a debate for school in a week, where I am pro post 9/11 security measures. I would like to see what it would be like to be on the opposing side so that I can better prepare for rebuttal. I am hoping for a great debate with whoever my opponent is! My first argument will focus on the TSA which arose right after 9/11. Firstly I would say that there is too much money being wasted on security measures, as TSA has cost the nation's taxpayers over 1 trillion d...

Should Puerto Rico become a U.S State?

I do not think Puerto Rico should become a state because it would offer little to no economic value to our government. Also, our status with the Caribbean-area is unstable, so it may spark some disagreement among the islands....

Law Enforcement Should Take More Focus On Non-lethal Methods of Crime Prevention

JordanLawson

First round is for acceptance only. With the news of many police officers overstepping their boundaries coming to light in recent month, I believe that Law Enforcement officials should be trained more thoroughly to resist direct, lethal engagement with a suspect. This includes a type of mental training that eliminates the somewhat common paranoid, trigger-happy ideology some officers have. My argument is also to provide non-lethal, first instinct methods such a rubber bullets, tasers, and pep...

I need my freedom to be a smartass! If I have a smartass comment I believe I should be allowed to let it loose every now and then. Students voices are slowly becoming quieter in schools if classes was more fun and open and students had freedom of speech im sure they would pay plenty more attention in class, what is your outlook on this subject?...

The overall purpose of philosophical argument should be to answer the question of how best to live

Icebox415
GoOrDin

Philosophy over time has rarely dealt with the most important question. How do we live best in this lifetime? Philosophical content and argument is too oftentimes tied up in semantics and questions that have no bearing on our lives. It's not related to the common man and has therefore lost perspective on what the purpose of philosophy should be....
