Should gay marriage be legalized?

Debate_King1475
9spaceking

Gay marriage should be allowed because humans made up marriage. As a result of us being the creator of marriage, we should be allowed to change it in any way we would like. Because we are allowed to change this in any way we desire, we should change it in favor of those who would like to be married in a gay way. For people who are against this, it is a bummer for them because we have a right to liberty and the freedom to express ourselves in this way....

Should guns be banned in America?

DisputesKing
GodWarrior

Guns should definitely be banned. As logic tells, without a purpose of attacking someone, why would it be necessary to own a gun if no one else has it. However, as we all know, the government cannot just simply pass a law to ban guns because of the lobbying of gun companies. Each years the gun companies lobby millions of dollars to political figures such as the president and senators. Therefore, it prevents them from simply banning guns. So, with this obstacle in the way, it is clear that gun ba...

whiteflame
phantom

Thank you to phantom for accepting this debate! It's an honor to get this opportunity, as phantom is one of the first debaters on this site whose arguments really stood out to me, specifically in the previous Tier Tournament. I hope and believe that this debate should provide a solid challenge to us both. The topic as it stands, "Let anyone work anywhere," is something I feel the need to clarify. First, I'd like to expand the topic to its full length. Full topic: There should be no law in...

Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Introduce and Expand on Arguments Round 3: Rebuttals Round 4: Counter-rebuttals/Conclusions NOTE: I am arguing for the more general Classical Liberalism, not the version specific only to the United States. My definitions of both worldviews are as follows: Liberalism- a political worldview founded on liberty and equality, usually supporting civil and human rights, private property, and a free market Conservatism- a political worldview advocating tradi...

Should Puerto Rico become a U.S State?

badmonkey27

I do not think Puerto Rico should become a state because it would offer little to no economic value to our government. Also, our status with the Caribbean-area is unstable, so it may spark some disagreement among the islands....

"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...

The words "under God" should not be taken out of the Pledge.

JasperFrancisShickadance
YaHey

I, Pro, concede and imply that "under God" should not be taken out of the American pledge of Allegiance. It is truly a matter of if you believe God is our Creator or not, but our founding Fathers did and this is something to be respected. The nation should not take the chance or risk it because, if the God many presidents and citizens of the USA believe in is real, then we should continue to put our trust in Him. It should not make atheists mad if those words are in the Pledge or on money becaus...
