Minimum Wage Should Not Be Raised

bballcrook21
Brian1813

I will be arguing for a stable federal minimum wage in the United States. I personally believe that the minimum wage should be abolished altogether, as I believe in almost nonexistent government intervention in business. However, I am arguing that we should not increase the minimum wage any higher then it already is on a federal basis. This comes from the fact that Seattle, NYC, LA, and Chicago have all raised their minimum wages to an exorbitant amount, which will eventually end up in los...

Gay marrige

Maciebaker
Zarroette

Hello, to whoever may read this. I do not mean to offend you but these are my beliefs and I do feel strongly about them. So, be prepared lol. I have always felt gay marrige should be legalized. Quite frankly until this week when it finally was, I never thought it would happen. I'm not a member of the LGBT community, but I'm 100% for it. Don't get me wrong, it's not a total shock to me when people want to use bible verses and Jesus Christ as reasons gays shouldn't marry. I understand completely....

Is the American Dream achieveable?

Niall_McGee27
CodeFunny

If you work hard you can achieve the American Dream. This means not being lazy and doing what it takes to achieve it. People who say it isn't achieveable because either they don't have it or don't want it bad enough. My apologizes. The American Dream is defined as being able to live in a stable job with stable income, enough to satisifed the needs without concern....

Progressive tax doesn't work

Stensson
Romanii

1st round is acceptance I will argue that progressive tax is not fair, nor does it work in the long run. This debate is not related to any specific country. Progressive tax - a tax in which the tax rate increases as the taxable amount increases. The alternative option is flat tax. Starting from round 2 all rounds are free form meaning statements along with rebuttals. Good luck!...

I have not debated on this website for a long time. Glad to be back! Moving on, this is the debate of the topic: "The US Penny Should be Taken Out of Service." The first round is simply for acceptance. Rules: 1) No trolling/semantics. 2) No offensive content/swearing 3) Keep arguments within the spirit of debate/no personal attacks. In the event of a rule being broken by either side, it will result in an automatic loss. I eagerly await an opponent....
