Should the Minimum Wage be abolished in the United States?

KingHades1722
Andrew-Cheng

Prerequisites: Be somewhat polite. This does not mean that you have to tip-toe around disproving my points, if you find yourself in a position to disprove them; merely, do not resort to insults and general degradation. As to my position, I am a firm believer that an abolishment of a minimum wage would be beneficial for the economy of the United States....

Is capitalism the best economic system?

Trump27
Capitalistslave

Capitalism is what makes America the greatest country in the world. It is one of the reasons we are made almost entirely of immigrants, because people, whether fleeing communism, socialism, or other weak economies, want to come to the U.S. because they know we have jobs. We have a solid, open, and opportunistic economy. The American Dream! Capitalism drives us to make money, to make corporations that provide jobs, and to create the goods and services which gives Western society its high quality...

Should the rich help the middle class and poor???

cweagle7712
ConservativeGiraffe

I have 2 main arguments in support of this issue. 1) i believe the rich must share in the profits they produce, and not hoard it all to themselves. It does not make sense for them to keep every single dime they make. They are the reason we have so much corruption in this country, and they are the reason the economy has been virtually stagnant. 2) class division is completely unethical. It makes me sick to my stomach to think that there are LITERALLY people who seek out the poor, and m...
