Benshapiro
Unitomic

Wealth redistribution will incur an extra 10% tax per dollar earned over the existing income tax rate to the wealthiest 1% to be redistributed to the lower-middle class. First round is for acceptance....

I think children over the age of 10 are responsible enough, to have a facebook account. They are at that age where they can be really responsible.Although, I am not totally for it because children are children and they can get a bit irresponsible. I guess it just matters on the child....

Is America the Best Country in the World?

matthewmatt14

This argument will not be used to debate things like patriotism, and I do not want ignorant arguments such as "America is the best because it is." This debate will be used to actually discuss WHY (economically, educationally, militarily, etc.) America is the best, or why it is not. I will be taking the con in this argument. Round One: Acceptance (No Arguments) Round Two: Opening Arguments, No Rebuttals Round Three: Rebuttals, Further Arguments Round Four: No New Arguments, Further Rebuttal...

100th Debate: Taxes Should be Raised on the Rich

1Historygenius
lord_megatron

Hello friends! I'm doing my 100th debate here on DDO. For this debate, I decided to pick my favorite topic of tax policy. I will argue against taxes being raised on the rich and I will instead argue that taxes should be maintained or lowered for economic and government revenue benefits. My opponent must argue that raising taxes on the rich. The rich are those paying, as many would agree, the current top income tax rate and current capital gains tax rate.
