Ban Trade With China

Matthew3.14
MasturDbtor

This is a debate of whether or not trade with China should be banned. The parameters are to be set for trading with the US and trading is limited in definition to being only for tangible elements or items not including intellectual items. This was a class debate. I won, but my friend (who was my opponent) wants me to debate on DDO to be his "rematch." First round is acceptance....

High-speed rail should receive federal government subsidy in-place of current subsidies on highways

ConservativePolitico

My belief is that federal government subsidies on high-speed rail would benefit the United States greater than the continual subsidy of the current highway system. The first round is acceptance, the second is stating your argument, third round attempt to dispute claims made by the opponent in second round. I lowered the max number of characters to keep arguments concise. I look forward to a good debate, good luck....

That the CIA should rig elections in post Arab-Spring countries to ensure the moderates win

Challenger is Affirming. "Rig" can mean a number of things and I am happy to let the challenger define it within the clear intent of the topic. This is my first debate here, and I'm more used to Australs and WUDC style debating than LD, but hopefully my arguments will be clear anyway....

Spanking your child is considered abuse

ctfurn24

I have no idea as to why parents think its okay to hit children. Even if a child is acting out violence is never the answer. Not only is hitting a child hurting them physically, but it's also emotionally and socially hurting them. Some children grow up to be an extremely violent person. A child that gets abused at home is most likely to end up being socially unstable and may even suffer from severe depression. There are so many cases in the world where a child had been killed by their abusive pa...

Gay Marriage

nurddude
FourTrouble

This is my first debate on this site, but I feel very strongly about this topic. Anything goes, as long as it doesn't violate website rules. Why is it that people are so against gay marriage? I find no reason to disapprove of it, seeing as it makes people happy. It causes no harm, and freedom is clearly stated in the constitution. Also, this debate is under politics not religion. Please keep that in mind....
