Stimulus spending should be done in current economic conditions

SeriousThreat
RonPaulConservative

It is argued that most of the developed world central banks have already "shot" all their power in regards monetary policy and State should take more responsibility in regards fiscal policy to prop up their own nation's economy and world economy as a whole. So the debate is about that should governments make bigger deficits to ignite some "fire" for their economies and return to faster growth world or not? This is Pro's side debut debate, so inexperienced debaters are more welcomed to join...

Should we all become vegan ?

Blueberry6

People have been saying lately that everyone should become vegan because animals are getting hurt. But most animals eat other animals, so they say that other animals can eat meat but not humans. Of course there are more humans than most species but soon there would be more animals because we are not eating them. Soon the world would overpopulate with animals and the animals would eat all of the fruits and vegetables. Then humans would starve to death and become extinct. Just because they hate se...

Trump's EPA Director Selection

darbyheflin
toocoolblue

Trump's selection of Scott Pruitt as Director of the EPA is disastrous. Pruitt intends to reduce regulations in order to benefit the oil and natural gas industries with which he has strong ties. This is going to undo everything that the Obama administration has worked towards in order to create a more sustainable and environmentally conscious culture throughout the US and the World. With this choice it has become even clearer that Trump is only basing his decisions off of short run economic bene...

I am doing this debate again since someone accepted it last time and didn't post in time. Pro is of course arguing in favor of the above statement in the title. Rules: 1) Pro may begin their argument in round 1, but to keep things even since I am not using round 1 for debate, they should not use the last round for argument or debate, or else I will ask this debate to be deleted if they do. 2) No Kritik 3) Be careful not to use logical fallacies and be sure to cite sources: all uncited "f...
