Free Trade

Capitalistslave
colester112

I am taking the position against free trade. Burden of proof is shared equally. Pro may begin their argument in round 1 if they wish, but I ask that they waive round 4 since I am not using round 1 for debate, in order to keep the rounds used for debate equal. In round 4, if you use round 1 for debate, you should say something like "I am waiving this round as agreed upon". Otherwise, you could use round 1 for acceptance, agreement of definitions, and a brief overview of your position, but n...

Drago31
SJM

I believe that McDonald should go out of business! I have 3 reasons why: 1. Aggressive targeting of kids through McDonald's toys and marketing 2.

McDonald's dismal wages contribute to a poverty rate of 16.7% among United States fast food workers. EVIDENCE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UocgrWQhNOM Are you still lovin' it?...

This is Pro's side debut debate, so inexperienced debaters are more welcomed to join...

Should Abortion be illegal?

NoorH606
Sgt4Liberty

The debate over whether or not abortion should be a legal option continues to divide Americans long after the US Supreme Court's 7-2 decision in Roe v. Wade declared the procedure a "fundamental right" on Jan. 22, 1973. I believe abortion should continue on to be legal because as the independence state we are free we all have freedom some people use that freedom has an excuse or to made bad choices but we have no right to fight or break the law. I really believe that abortion is wrong but it's n...
