The electoral college system is more fair and effective than the popular vote system.

I would like to debate someone on the effectiveness of the electoral system over the popular system. The electoral college assigns values to states depending on population size, and all of the points for a state are awarded to a candidate when that candidate receives majority vote in that SPECIFIC state. The popular vote is a simple majority vote of the entire nation. I have started this debate because of the rising controversy from Hillary winning the popular vote, but not the electoral vote. T...

First round for acceptance. I will be arguing that though there may need to be changes we don't need to get rid of it entirely. My opponent will be arguing why we need to get rid of the Electoral Collage and (if they want, though I won't mind if they don't) what we need to replace it with....

Hello and thank you to anyone who accepts this debate. I would simply like to address the fact that society tends to label anything that remotely has to do with race or ethnicity as "racist". To clarify, the Pro (me) will be arguing that the phrase has been misused in society and is tossed around too much while the Con side can argue that the word is used correctly and is correctly applied to each scenario I bring.The definition of racism is: prejudice, discrimination, or antago...

Donald Trump's "Muslim Ban" is unconstitutional.

Donald Trump's "Muslim Ban" is unconstitutional. It is hard to debate that this is not unconstitutional. Our founding father based this nation on the freedom of religion, so why is a religion being singled out and "banned" from entering our country? Many people will argue that most terrorist attacks are carried out by Muslims, but that is simply not true. How could this possibly not be unconstitutional? The fact that anyone is being banned based on any similar trait is unconstitutional....

Donald Trump will be a good President. I’m a policy debater so I have experience with this sort of thing. Fiat the actions of Trump below.There was no impact to Trump's inauguration. Advantage 1: US Allies Trump is fully committed to our allies and they know it. He may take a significantly more hawkish line toward China than Beijing expects. Although Japan and South Korea will b...

If you need more room for text, you can put your argument on a Google document and have the link as your argument.
