all states should have opted into medicaid expansion

Francisco_DAnconia

all states should have opted into medicaid expansion it basically amounts to politics alone being the reason people are dying. obamacare included a medicaid expansion for people with low income. (people with more than little income are part of the normal obamacare insurance exchange program, that may or may not include subsidies. the main reason the states should have opted into the expansion, is because so many people will die if they don't. an estimated 17,000 people will die becau...

American public schools should not lead recitations of the current Pledge of Allegiance.

TruthHurts
ForSerious

Hello everyone. My case is that public schools should not lead recitations of the Pledge of Allegiance as it currently reads. What this essentially means is that schools should not have teachers or administrators leading group recitations of the Pledge, as is often seen in the status quo at the begininning of the school day. Note that this does not preclude students from personally and independently reciting the Pledge on school property. Round 1: Acceptance and...

Gun control works

Wylted

My contention will be that gun control is demonstrably effective in reducing the incidence of homicide and that there are precedents for effective gun control which illustrate its effectiveness. These are ignored by gun proponents because it doesn't suit their purpose, and instead of looking at facts, they produce anecdotes and hypothetical scenarios where a gun would help them defend themselves. I will argue that these are hypothetical in nature and have a significant motivation behind the...

America has less than 5% of the world's population but over 25% of the world's prisoners. When you add in detainees, that balloons to a third of the world's prisoners and when you look at those on parole and probation it balloons to over half of all the world's prisoners. Out of all the places in the world, the state of Georgia has the worst incarceration rate. In Georgia, 1 out of every 13 people are in prison, on parole, or on probation. Out of the entire world, the American south profits the...
