DeepInThought
Sojourner

One of the biggest issues for the US government is the issue of whether gay marriage should be legalized or not. I would say that the answer is simple, the US Constitution says (all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness)- www.archives.gov The rights for a man to love, be with, and be married to another man, or a woman to do the same with another woman with the same legal right...

It only seeks to argue whether or not he existed as a real figure in history.* Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Opening Argument Round 3: Rebuttal Round 4: Conclusion...

American Police are Overly Militarized

sengejuri
Mike_10-4

American Police, as most recently seen in the ongoing Ferguson, Missouri unrest, are overly militarized. BoP is shared. Overly Militarized = the employment of weapons, equipment, and tactics that are disproportionate to the threat. An overly aggressive posture that is counterproductive. Round 1 = acceptance only (no arguments) Round 2 = opening arguments (no rebuttals) Round 3 = rebuttals Round 4 = response/conclusion...

Has skydoesminecraft's channel quality gone downhill? (pro yes con no)

maewtt
9spaceking

Both sides have BOP. Skydoesminecraft is no longer funny. He is just annoying, immature and stupid. If you look at his videos now he swears every other sentence. A majority of his fan base is 12 and under but he makes no effort to keep his content appropriate for that age group. Also he almost never does mod reviews which a lot of people thought were very funny....
