the ACLU has been defending evil sence 1920

philosopherpirate

The ACLU is an organization that stands for all of the bad guys they support any freak that runs to them for help! such as the NAMBLA and other such anti american anti moral groups. the ACLU fights against Christianity and Judaism and all that is good in this country. The ACLU defended the rights for Nazis to march through a prominently Jewish community in Skokie Illinois. The ACLU fought to take down a cross on a World War II memorial saying it was forcefully shoving Christianity down pe...

A true "Conservative Republican" Would Favor the Legalization and/or Decriminalization of Marijuana

lindsay
mrmatt505

Let me begin by saying I am NOT debating whether or not marijuana should be legalized. That can be a whole other debate, if need-be. What I AM stating is that right now, a typical Republican would say "Marijuana should not, and most likely never will be made legal." This defeats the principles of conservativism. Conservatives desire as little government control as possible. This is why they are for gun-rights, against raising taxes, against national health care, etc. Why, then, should t...

Abortion is genocide and should be illegal in the United States

keni08
scrotes

Abortion is genocide. Some of the biggest pro-choice people admit that the argument that a baby is not alive in the womb is inadequate. From the moment the child is conceived, it is a human. Murder is the act of killing a human life. Why should their be a double standard that while "in the womb" it doesn't count as murder?...

Should affirmative action policies be eliminated?

USMCgal625
Rousseau

Affirmative action generally means giving preferential treatment to minorities in admission to universities or employment in government & businesses. The policies were originally developed to correct decades of discrimination and to give disadvantaged minorities a boost. The diversity of our current society as opposed to that of 50 years ago seem to indicate the programs have been a success. But now, many think the policies are no longer needed and that they lead to more problems than they solve...

The United States Is a Faltering Nation. It Is On The Decline

Rousseau
Thoreau

Well, I'd be more than happy to get further in depth after my opponent brings up his points, but here are mine: The United States is on the decline. This is because of several reasons. 1. Lack of serious global competition, power-wise. 2. Severe Lack of Soft Power, and Hard Power that may be faltering 3. Enemies that are transboundary and practically invisible 4. Dependence on Foreign Oil and Oil in general 5. Economic stagnation 6. Policing policy failing 7. Lack of a strong candidate...

Socialism Is A Very Bad Idea

C-Mach
cody30228

Socialism has ruined the lives of billions since its inception. Many of those billions have been killed in genocides (e.g., The Great Leap Forward). Now, he problem is getting worse. People's quality of life has been severely reduced by socialism. It only makes things worse, so why do mentally sane and people capable of reason & common sense still follow this ideology? It astounds me....

Was Bill Clinton really a good president?

ReaganConservative
Spencerific

Former President Bill Clinton ran one of the most corrupt administrations this great nation has ever known. The United States was attacked numerous times without an aggressive response and bin Laden was to the point where he was being delivered on a silver platter by Sudanese authorities, yet Clinton let him go. Clinton participated in "sexual escapades" in the Oval Office with an intern his daughter's age. Even though committing adultery is not a crime, the fact he committed perjury and lied to...

George W. Bush is a great President

Phil
Cristy

George W. Bush is a great President, and has served the U.S. honorably. While there appears to be significant outrage by a majority of Americans, I believe it is in fact a minority whose voices are being hyped by the leftist media. The far left never recovered from Al Gore losing in the 2002 election, and as time has gone on, the leftists in this country have done everything possible to find fault with President Bush. Despite the fake outrage portrayed by the media, President Bush in fact a grea...
