The US Patriot Act is necessary for the safety of America.

The Protect America Act modernized the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to provide our intelligence community essential tools to acquire important information about terrorists who want to harm America. The Act, which passed with bipartisan support in the House and Senate and was signed into law by President Bush on August 5, 2007, restores FISA to its original focus of protecting the rights of persons in the United States, while not acting as an obstacle to gathering foreign intellig...

Should the United States withdraw it's troops from Iraq?

USMCgal625
Daxitarian

American troops have been in Iraq for several years now. Although the defeat of Saddam and the Iraq military was relatively easy, the stabilization of the country in the aftermath has been anything but easy. Thousands of American troops have died, and Iraqi civilians continue to get caught in terrorist and cross-cultural attacks on a daily basis. The U.S. continues to progress in its attempt to help the Iraqis become politically and militarily self-sufficient, but most Democrats and much of the...

Terrorism is a serious threat to the US

Following the tragic demise of 3000 New Yorkers on September 11th, the United States was scared. In attempts to repel futrue attacks they issued a declaration of war on "Terror" and started invading a country that was harbouring The Foundation's masterminds. Who could blame them for that country had just spat in America's face by refusing to cooperate in cathcing the men repsonsible? But for some reason they did not stop it at that. That presidential election one of the major media campaigns...

Hydroeletric power is an effective way to produce energy. The Pros outway the Cons.

HOW HYDROELECTRIC POWER WORKS: From the dam's reservoir, water is directed in pipes called penstocks through turbines. The falling water spins the blades of the turbines, which are connected to generators. There are three types of hydropower facilities - impoundment, diversion, and pumped storage. Impoundment - uses dams/waterfalls. Diversion - divert a portion of a river through a turbine. Pumped storage - when the demand for electricity is low, a pumped storage facility is often used to...

Any one can play air guitar. You don't have to spend a bunch of money on guitar lessons and a guitar. If a girl wants you to seranade her with a song you can just pull out your air guitar. Air guitars are amazingly cool and it doesn't matter which notes you play because you make the sounds yourself. Also air guitar is freakin amazing because it was used in the 1989 movie Bill and Ted's excellent adventure, which is probaly the coolest movie ever. IN this movie the air gutiars make real sounds. s...

Wet Feet Dry Feet Act of 1994

shlh1514
Ragnar_Rahl

Well I believe that the Wet Feet Dry Feet Act (circa 1994) was a great way to show that their is some immigration justice to this world. For anyone that doesn't know what it is the act it is: • The United States agreed to no longer permit Cubans intercepted at sea to come to the United States; rather, Cubans would be placed in a safe haven camp in a third location. Justifying this policy as a "safety of life at sea" issue, Cuba also agreed to use "persuasive methods" to discourage people from...

Ther Border Fence between the USA and Mexico is a bad idea

crazypenguin
NonZeroBubble

Thank you for joining this debate, First I would like to state my oppening arguments. There shouldn't be a border fence in between Mexico and the USA because not only does it seem very inconsiderate by showing that we have to block out a country and isolate ourselves and Mexico but also why do we need a big fence showing that we don't want anyone in our country from Mexico. Second why do we have to create hostillity between two nations who work well together. By building this fence not...
