Business should be nationalised to ensure people get paid more fairly

About the debate: I would like to begin by asking my opponent to use good English, explain their arguments clearly, not repeat or paraphrase arguments and to avoid presenting arguments with emotional elements. Most of all, let's not let things get too heated - debates can be fun. If either of us does not understand an argument of our opponent, ask them in the comments section to avoid wasting rounds.

Should US citizens have the right to bear arms?

Should US citizens have the right to bear arms? The answer, yes.

Feeding the government gives them a change to throw away all the good that the founding Fathers made f...

Is there a Wage Gap based on discrimination of the genders in the United States of America?

SoulTechNameIII
George_DZ

Well I have to say, I'm just not convinced by the "evidence" for a wage gap based on discrimination. However, I'm open if my currently undecided opponent provides solid evidence that this gap exists. Remember, this is about Gender discrimination, not Racial. While I also would contest to racial discrimination existing, that's not particularity what I'm interested in debating....
