Rebublic:Rule of law. Of course the law that has best served America was Judeo-Christian law, or summed up, the ten commandment.Except for the first two, these laws would best serve all people.As in any constitution, where law comes from will dictate the freedoms it experiences and the prosperity and success of its people. Democracy on the other hand is simply rule by the majority. Which could be easily end up with mob rule. A moral majority would keep things in check. But it would not be long b...

Hamas is more at fault for the current suffering of Palestinians than Israel.

I have already posted this debate but it was screwed up so I made minor changes to who can accept this debate. I said Hamas in the title and that is the focus but this also includes other terrorists like them such as whoever was responsible for the murder of the three Israeli teens. By current I mean in the last few months. Just to be clear it is still permitted to bring up an occurrence before if it is relevant. Other than that I think the title says it all but I will define fault. Fault- R...

Oppressive government is more desirable than no government.

jackh4mm3r

This is a "Lincoln-Douglas" debate; each opponent must have a value and criterion, followed by contentions. Round One is for acceptance and declaring which side you would like to debate: 'oppressive government' or 'no government.' Please excuse the side debate.org has declared I am; it would not let me proceed with the debate without picking a side. Round Two is for opening arguments only. Round Three is for rebuttals and strengthening your case. Next, Round 4 consists of more rebuttals. And fin...

The Fouding Fathers (U.S.) Didn't Care about the Constitution

Bennett91
darthebearnc

The debate at stake is to discuss if our founding fathers truly valued the document that they created. In my argument I will show how our founding fathers violated the very Constitution that they signed, the very document that patriots died for, only to be discarded by our founders in the name of power and American White Supremacy. If our founders were alive today (maybe except Jefferson) they'd turn over in their graves at the sight of our modern day tolerance. Round 1 will be acceptance,...
