Thanks to my opponent, TeaPatriot, for both having this debate with me and making it fun. We decided not to prepare for this round, so it was rather loose, but I still enjoyed doing it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5xNYOSeYWs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5xNYOSeYWs...

Should we (The United States) cut taxes on the rich?

xxchilledriotxx

The United States should cut taxes on the rich for a variety of reasons. 1) The rich worked long and hard for their money, and who are we to tell them that they have enough? 2) A lot of rich people accumulate serious debt on their path to be rich. 3) The more money the rich make, the more people that are employed. When the country puts regulation on businesses the company needs to find a way to pay for it. 4) Why are people who do not pay tax voting for tax increases?...

The United States should maximize production in coal.

Thank you for your interest in opposing my stand on this matter. I believe the united states should maximize its coal production, assuming massive growth in the economy to follow. Many coal miners have lost their jobs, plants and mines have shut down, and the United States has lost its independence in energy production....

Taxation is theft

easyaspieify
Caise

Hello everyone, I am here to argue the well-trodden argument that taxation of a person's labor is tantamount to theft. This is my first time debating on this website, and I would like to test myself and challenge my ideas. I am arguing that taxation of a person's earnings, under threat of government force, is equivalent to theft. Even if the tax dollars were being used purely for strategies that benefit society, forcing the populace to give their earnings to the government without any say is...
