Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially increase its economic and/or dip


We cannot have a policy of economic stagnation between two countries. With this period of economic interconnectedness, China's economic problems are our economic problem, and vice versa. Right now, viewing China as the Big Bad Wolf is not a correct position to take. In actuality, it is not even a grown-up position to take. If we allow ourselves to become friends and cooperate with China, who knows what problems could be resolved. In particular, the problem of North Korea could be easily flushed...

Are we in need of redifining family?


Economic incentives for conventional marriage is getting undermined. Especially women are tend to delay their marriage and prenancy as late as possible for their career. There are more celibates and cohabits than before. Along with this changes, the shared house/ childcare are rising in some area.

Is the United Nations Still Relevant?


the wake of the failure of the United Nations (UN) Security Council to legitimate or prevent the 2003 war in Iraq, the summer 2006 impasse over a resolution to the conflict in Lebanon, and the likely September 2006 stalemate with Iran over nuclear development, there are good reasons to be skeptical about the ability of the Security Council and, perhaps, the broader UN to fulfill their mandates to maintain international peace and security.

Classic Robert Gauntlet Tournament: The current tax system should be replaced by the fair tax.


By current tax system, I'm referring to the federal tax system currently used by the United States government. Explanation of the Fair Tax 1. The Fair Tax is a consumption tax at the point of sale for 23% of every dollar spent. It's effectively a 30% sales tax. For the first year. 2. The tax will replace income tax, social security, corporate taxes, capital gains tax, Medicare tax, payroll tax, gift taxes and estate tax. 3. The tax would be on all new goods and services. Purchases fr...

Should all medical care be free?


For a long time it has been debated whether or not medical care of differing kinds should be free. I believe that medical care of all kinds should be free-of-cost to all U.S. Citizens. Almost six hundred thousand people are without a home each day in the United States* alone. If one can not afford a house, how can they afford to treat the illness that they have? It was not their choice to contract their disease, disorder, or ailment. Therefore, they should not have the burden of giving up eve...

We should not have aquariums since it is imprisoning helpless animals that should have a choice. Humans were put on this Earth to take care of animals, not imprison them to where they can't run around in the wild. Also, guess what? We are a species of animal. Our species is human. Choose the right side and vote against aquariums....
