Beans. I like them because they are delicious. And there are so many different varieties. Plus, as we all know, they're good for your heart.

Beans. Where do they come from and why are they bad?

First, beans come from gardens. But who works these gardens? In the past, families would have several kids. My grandfather was one of eleven. Families had many kids so those kids could work in the garden. This is child labor. And child labor is bad.

Second, beans are usually small. Therefore, they are easy to choke on.

Third, beans come in many different varities and styles, of which could cause health problems. Several people have linked intenstinal issues to refried beans. Some people are also allergic.

Therefore, beans are not good.

The main issue for this debate is health.

Refried beans are a favorite for many people. However, refried beans are very unhealthy. They are loaded with fat and have been blamed for several health issues, including intestinal problems.

Some beans also have a lot of carbs.

"First, beans come from gardens. But who works these gardens? In the past, families would have several kids. My grandfather was one of eleven. Families had many kids so those kids could work in the garden. This is child labor. And child labor is bad."

It is not based on child labor anymore. It is done by adults from labor unions.

"beans are usually small. Therefore, they are easy to choke on."

Not all beans are small. And how would you choke on refried beans due to size?

"Third, beans come in many different varities and styles, of which could cause health problems. Several people have linked intenstinal issues to refried beans. Some people are also allergic."

Because they come in so many different kinds, there are many others to choose from if you are allergic to one kind.

Furthermore, the farming and sale of beans stimulates economic growth because it creates jobs.

My opponent never refuted my point that beans are delicious, so this is a dropped argument.

In conclusion, beans, beans, they're good for the economy. A strong economy means helps us avoid politcal autonomy. Yeah, I rhymed.

"beans are delicious"
This is just an opinion. I, myself, might think beans are disgusting beyond belief. Therefore, "beans are delicious" is a point that can't be debated because it is merely opinion.

Beans may be good for the economy, but we have been farming and selling beans and look how our economy is now.

Therefore, beans are not helpful.

I was thinking of political autocracy. Not autonomy. I mean it gives us political autonomy.
