These two policies are nationalization of certain industries(firefighters, education, healthcare, police)and some form of government regulation of the free market. I will list my arguments in round 2 as th...

I would like to put forward that the Balanced Budget Amendment is bad policy for the 2011 Debt debate. Unless my opponent wishes otherwise, the version of the BBA we will use is that which was in H.J. 1 that House Republicans pushed for [1]. I am also willing to consider the Senate version, though they differ mainly in thresholds for military conflict exemptions and tax raises. While lowering the debt is an admirable and necessary undertaking, there are wrong and right ways to go about it. BB...

The United States National Debt is the Amount of Money the United States has Created not Borrowed

My position is that the United States National Debt is not how much the United States has "borrowed", but it is how much the United States has created.

I am not a fan of John Keynes' economic theory. Basically, while it may seem appealing in a theoretical sense - I believe it does not work in practice. Please feel free to accept the debate or present an argument....

Social Darwinism is a just theory

Sketchy

Rules:1. If Con starts the argument in the first round, he/she must not use the last round. If Con simply uses the first round for acceptance, they can use their last round.2. BoP is shared.3. Invoking Godwin's Law will result in immediate loss of conduct and argument points.4. If someone uses semantic arguments, the opponent also has the right to use semantics without loss of conduct points.5. If you have any questions about the rules, message...
