Universal health care nuts should also be in favor of universal food, shelter, clothing, etc.

HandsOff
Danielle

If universal health care crowd were capable of being a little more consistent, they'd be communists. Despite the fact that nowhere in our founding documents is health care declared a "right," proponents who want to make it a right point to the fact that health care is a human necessity. But there is a huge problem with this argument. If the degree of necessity is the criteria for converting a private service into a public entitlement, why isn't universal food, clothing, water, shelter, transport...

Bush did the right thing when we went into Iraq and Afghanistan.

The only problem with George Bush is that he doesn't stand up for himself. We did the right thing. Do you remember this? Please- do everyone a favor and just watch this video before accepting my challenge. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDh_pvv1tUM...

Marijuana Should NOT Be Legalized

VaLoR
clsmooth

The legalization of marijuana, either for medical purposes or otherwise, is entirely unjustifiable. Marijuana only suits one significant purpose, other than the feel good effects of use, and that is as a pain killer "medication." This is reason enough for advocates in favor of legalization to use as justification for the legalization for medical purposes, at least. I view this argument as more of an excuse for legalization than a legitimate concern. Marijuana isn't the only pain killer on the ma...

George Bush is a good president

policydebategod
Phil

George Bush has destroyed our nation. 1. He implimented No Child Left Behind, overcrowding our good schools and still leaving our bad schools to be bad. 2. He created the Iraq War for the purpose of finding weapons of mass destruction, stopping terrorism, and promoting democracy. They vote, they have no WMDs, and terrorism will NEVER be stopped, and Iraq has nothing to do with it. 3. He lowered out economy significantly, lower than most African nations. 4. He raised gas prices, making tr...

Marijuana Legalization

SuperPerfundo
Epicism

I think marijuana should be legalized. For the purposes of the debate, let's assume laws under legalization would make pot similar to alcohol (21 age limit, no driving under the influence, etc.) 1. Other substances Alcohol impairs you more, yet is legal. Cigarettes offer all of the same health concerns, but offer no significant benefit (high) and most cigarette smokers smoke more than marijuana users on a daily basis. Also, marijuana has been medically proven to be non-habit-forming, unlike...

Women should not have the same rights as men.

christ88
nitya

I'll keep it short and simple to begin: Women in history have not earned the right to be at the same social level as men. The achievements men have reached give them the rights they have. Women want to take the rewards without the work. Not only socially, but also physically, men are the dominating gender. This now becomes not a matter of opinion, but science. It is a fact that men are stronger, faster, and more athletic than women, so why pretend they are on equal terms? Women were not m...

There is most likely no life after death

Rob
james94

My argument is simple: there isn't sufficient evidence to believe in an afterlife, so we ought not to. The idea of an afterlife dates back to antiquated notions of a "vital spark", "spirit", or similar nonmaterial substance or energy which was supposedly responsible for animating living things. Modern science has shown that life operates through complex chemical reactions, and does not need an extra vitalistic "thing" in order to function. Bacteria do not seem to need souls in order to move a...

Does God exist?

Mason0612
ChuckHenryII

Well, where do I begin....... I was born a catholic but when I was 14, I looked at the world, and noticed something is lacking in the credibility of religion. I am 16 now, and still attend a catholic school, but I am now an atheist. Here are some of the many things that I see about religion and God. 1. Scientific evidence has disproved many biblical claims such as the earth being 6000 years old, when it's actually more then 4 billion. We know this due to carbon dating and radioactive dat...

The elections that are occuring in 08 are fixed against ron paul

DeATHNOTE
VantagePoint

ok, with all the publicity that is coming for Ron Paul there is no way he keeps placing in 5th place for all of them. the people that are coming in places higher than him are more likely to be the ones coming in lower places than him. My next point brings me to the different ways that the balletts are taken. the hand voting balletts are more likely to be accurate because there are wittnesses counting every single one. sure there is human error to take into consideration but there is only goi...

George Bush: Good Candidate...Bad Timing

JTSmith
Danielle

George Bush... Not a day goes by when someone does not refer to him as the worst president in American History. Seriously??? Some people need to learn their history. How about Ulysses S. Grant, whose administration was the author of the greatest government scandals in US History. Then theres John Adams, who stiffened our economy and passed laws that made it illegal to talk badly about government leaders. When John Quincy Adams left office our country was in a serious recession and EVERYBODY...
