Professional wrestling should be an Olympic sport like gymnastics

potnoodlehead
Peili

Take a look at figure skating and gymnastics. Both are choreographed performances just like professional wrestling. Have it judged and the winner is the team with the better performance. It would be great to see USA against Mexico, or Japan against Canada. You take two of the best workers from a certain country and put them in a match against each other and get scored by the judges. It"s the exact same thing as figures skating, so why not? For example it could be Chris Jericho vs Lance Storm of...

Hitler was an excellent political leader.

Although Hitler is responsible for millions of disgusting war crimes and grotesques, he was a brilliant leader. After the hyperinflation caused by the disgraced and dis-respected Weimar Republic, he led the people of Germany out of the ramshackle government with promises of rebuilding Germany to it's former glory. Putting aside the atrocities he later put forward, his charismatic speeches and promises were set at the right time, and he was capable of having the entire country supporting him....

World Government will Impede the Progress of Humanity

wxyz2000
Delons

I believe instituting a world government will prove disadvantageous for human society. I will have the burden of proof. World government is the notion of a single common political authority for all of humanity. First round is acceptance. Second round is opening statement Third round is rebuttal. Fourth round is rebuttal and concluding argument. I have debated this before in the past, but my opponent forfeited. I might use some of my arguments in the past....

no Obamacare

dancampbell869
Elijahhill97

First round is just to accept the challenge. Second and third rounds will be debating rounds. Fourth round will be closing (no new facts/arguments as the opponent does not have a chance to respond). My stance is against ObamaCare. Anyone who supports Obamacare I would love to debate on this topic. Good luck!...

Redistribution of Wealth

sconifer
Contra

Focusing first on your claim that the redistribution of wealth (or, more generally, resources) would somehow inherently destroy all incentive to work on the part of those from whom resources were taken, this is just patently untrue. It is a well-known historical fact of economics that, even when corporations are taxed at supposedly exorbitant rates (e.g., about 90% under FDR), American industry nevertheless thrives, CEOs still make out like bandits, the populace as a whole is no less likely to p...

Voting should be compulsory.

cpbm
Mister_Man

Voting in local, state and national elections should be compulsory for all who are eligible to vote because it is the best way to judge the will of the people and achieve the fairest or most democratic outcome. Leaving voting up to the most motivated or the most able will only skew the results and give a false perspective on the wishes of the electorate. Voluntary voting also leads to dirty tactics for candidates and campaigners including, for example, legislating rules that would unfairly a...
