Free Trade

Capitalistslave
colester112

I am taking the position against free trade. Burden of proof is shared equally. Pro may begin their argument in round 1 if they wish, but I ask that they waive round 4 since I am not using round 1 for debate, in order to keep the rounds used for debate equal. In round 4, if you use round 1 for debate, you should say something like "I am waiving this round as agreed upon". Otherwise, you could use round 1 for acceptance, agreement of definitions, and a brief overview of your position, but n...

So the debate is about that should governments make bigger deficits to ignite some "fire" for their economies and return to faster growth world or not? This is Pro's side debut debate, so inexperienced debaters are more welcomed to join...

The Wage Gap is Fake

tkentk
kasmic

As an avid surfer of the webs, I inevitably come across feminist blogs and other such sites claiming that there is an unfair wage gap between men and women in the United States. It is my belief, after some research, that this claim is untrue. To start off with, discrimination in salary in a working environment has been illegal since 1963. If you believe that your gender is causing your employer to pay you more or less, you can sue them in court and you will win. Period. Besides that, th...
