Is the United Nations Still Relevant?

NoorH606
dsjpk5

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. Yet, in the face of new global challenges ranging from en...

Every four years us the people get to vote for who we want to become president whether it's Barack Obama or George w. bush we voted for them. Now here we have a new generation of the world filled with many problems and we need a leader who can work under pressure and not CRITIZE people. Here is an example of not who to pick and remember this is my opinion so no hard feelings, Mr. Trump is currently trying to convince people to vote for him, he is either trying to say things that he will probably...

President Obama is/was a good president (economics)

Sgt4Liberty
Reformist

President Obama is/was a good president (economics). I believe he is NOT a good president Economically speaking and can prove it. I challenge "Reformist" to this debate, considering his opponent in his debate isn't putting up a fight at all. I'd like to show how the alleged data is flawed, and how Obama is actually hurting the economy. Only rules; 48 hours argue time, 10k characters, 5 rounds, source your data if providing charts/data. May the best Debater win!...

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

Wylted
YYW

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...

Fast Food $15/hour Wages

treble_clef_hkd
markuswashere

So, lately fast food employees have been rioting for a $15/hour wage. I think this is ridiculous. First of all you flip burgers and make fries for a living. If you want something that pays higher, get your butt out there and find a job that does. Also, speaking as a 16-year old that is hopefully getting a job in the next few weeks (want McDonald's) I don't want a $15/hour job. If these wages are accepted, I would be making more than my mom does working at the public library. I'm a teenager in hi...

Minimum Wage Should Not Be Raised

bballcrook21
Brian1813

I will be arguing for a stable federal minimum wage in the United States. I personally believe that the minimum wage should be abolished altogether, as I believe in almost nonexistent government intervention in business. However, I am arguing that we should not increase the minimum wage any higher then it already is on a federal basis. This comes from the fact that Seattle, NYC, LA, and Chicago have all raised their minimum wages to an exorbitant amount, which will eventually end up in los...

This is the final round of the September Beginners Tournament, hosted by The-Voice-of-Truth and lannan13.

I will be affirming the resolution, and SolonKR will be negating the resolution. For clarification, let me provide definitions of the terms. The definition of "just" is up for debate, but I will...
