The Union was inspired by Jifpop's "DDO Revolution Party," but it is an entirely separate organization. Anybody, regardless of race, age, gender, sexual orientation, and political stances, may join the Union simply by saying they wish to join. The DDO Mem...

Was Bill Clinton really a good president?


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...

Gay marriage should be legal in the United States.


I will be using a dual overlaying teleological/constitutional argument to contend that gay marriage should be legalized in the United States. In this project I will borrow the harm principle, as articulated by John Stewart Mill, to argue that the only reasonable circumstance in which a government can limit a citizen's liberty is to prevent that person from causing harm to others. This view when taken to its logical conclusion would entail the legalization of gay marriage. Contention 1:...

Socialism Is A Very Bad Idea


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?

Guiliani Is Not Qualified To Be President


Governor Guiliani is not qualified to be the president,he does not stand for the common folk.I think that he should continue as the governor in order to gain experience. He did not do anything to help the state of New York,when the twin towers fell on 9/11,but took the credit for the rescue efforts. He is for opening the border gates to welcome illegal immigrants which I strongly and violently disagree with due to the fact that they are coming from Mexico and Cuba with out legal documentation....

Should affirmative action policies be eliminated?


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...
