In this debate, I will argue that the Minimum Wage should be increased. Unfortunately, most Republicans oppose the notion because they call it a "job killer." I would like to prove them wrong. I look forward to debating this topic with anyone that disag...

This has led to the death of thousands of...

InVinoVeritas

Resolved: Adam Smith's book The Wealth of Nations is wrongly taken as a pro-capitalist tome, and in reality, Smith was not a Capitalist at all.
