More Guns Creates a Safer Society


Hi, so I saw your opinion on assault weapons and I thought you may like to have a debate concerning the 2nd Amendment and Gun Rights.

The American Defense budget is excessive


I have already posted this debate a few weeks ago, but i wanted to do it again. I would ask that the person i debated last time please not accept out of respect, simply because i think it'd be more fun to debate someone new. Hello, I am a Sailor in the USN, and a proud patriot of the United States. One of the most common debates about the American government is our very large defense budget, of hundreds of billions of dollars, which is larger than the next several countries combined. While of...
