Trolling is just a label, a name calling kind of thing.

Max.Wallace

Most debaters are trolls, unless they are debating an inconsequential issue with humor or another featherweight issue. Trolling is normal with whoever takes a side as someone on the other side of serious issues will have an emotional response even if the instigator dumbs it down with PC language. I am proud to troll, but calling me a troll is insulting, however offensive and stupid the anti troll's beliefs are. Calling someone a troll is a defense mechanism, it is basically saying that the troll...

government should implement a 'fat tax'

linate

government should implement a 'fat tax' the idea, that heart disease and other bad health effects from being fat causes an increase in health care costs, in a country that is heavily subsidized by the government. so, whatever it costs should be made up for in fat taxes. my understanding is right now the costs of being fat to the government are not sufficiently made up for in sales taxes. if it were, it would be more prohibitive for over eaters, so they would't eat and be lazy as much, and...

Is a Capitalist government beneficial for the nation in the long run?

Politicallion
AniKnight

This issue is controversial and I am willing to debate on it, as I need answers. A Capitalist government envisages enormous amounts of economic growth but will eventually turn out to be a struggle for the middlemen and the poor to live due to the increase in the price of basic commodities. Capitalism is like providing the field with fertilizers, You might reap a bounty crop in a short period of time. But, continuous use would mean stripping the field of it's nutritive value. Handling a nation...

the idea, that cancer and other bad health effects from smoking causes an increase in health care costs, in a country that is heavily subsidized by the government. so, whatever it costs should be made up for in cigarette taxes. my understanding is right now the costs of tobacco to the government are not sufficiently made up for in sales taxes. if it were, it would be more prohibitive for smokers, so they would't smoke as much, and it'd be ensure the government is getting reimbursed for what i...

I would argue that the folks that call others "trolls" are nothing more then weak kneed name callers with no courage to speak their mind freely. Bring it please, if you stooped to the level of calling someone a "troll"....

Jeffersonian anti-federalism triumphs Hamilton's Federalism

Volcanoes13
dexterbeagle

Thomas Jefferson's ideology on the federal government was the most supportable. The idea that the federal government should be stronger than the individual states' governments is a fault. The key to liberty is to decentralize the governing authorities, and leave governing decisions up to the local governments. The 10th amendment strongly supports this idea, that the federal government must be strongly limited. A central banking system also is a fault, for it centralizes the power of the federal...

"Marijuana, Cocaine and even Heroin Should be Legalized." -Ron Paul

I'm going to pull a Ron Paul here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtNc-IFJPU0 Structure: R1) Acceptance, Analysis, Structure and Rules R2) Opening arguments R3) Rebuttals and Conclusions Analysis: Let's keep this to only to the philosophical basis for the role of government in people's lives -not about the impact of drug use, why drugs are bad, etc. That drug use is harmful to the body is not in dispute. The issue of contention for this debate is whether the government has a right...
