DDO Members Union (Pro) vs. DDO Revolution Party (Con)

Jifpop09

The Debate.org Members Union (AKA DDO Members Union) is an organization that was founded on March 1, 2014. It was formerly known as the Troll Hunting Society, but after an hour or two of its existence its name was changed to the current name. 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...

Gay marriage should be legal in the United States.

Freeman
mongeese

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:...

the ACLU has been defending evil sence 1920

griffinisright
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?...

Guiliani Is Not Qualified To Be President

james94
Crystal

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....

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...

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....

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...
