Gambling (Take 2.)
Debate Rounds (5)
First, the American Constitution. Second, the Declaration of independence. And finally, it has saved people.
On to my first point, the US Constitution. The US federal government can not legally create state laws. (10th amendment) If we wanted to control/limit the gambling "issue" then the Federal government can't do anything. It'll be up to the states.
My second point Id the Declaration of Independence. It promises "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." if someone is happy with gambling, we can't really deny it.
My third point, it has saved people. Two companies, PIMCO and Fedex, have both been affected positively by gambling. The owner of Fedex took their last $5,000 and gambled it in Vegas. He came back with $27,000.
"I asked Fred where the funds had come from, and he responded, "The meeting with the General Dynamics board was a bust and I knew we needed money for Monday, so I took a plane to Las Vegas and won $27,000." I said, "You mean you took our last $5,000-- how could you do that?" He shrugged his shoulders and said, "What difference does it make? Without the funds for the fuel companies, we couldn't have flown anyway." Fred's luck held again. It was not much, but it came at a critical time and kept us in business for another week."
The other company, PIMCO, PIMCO founder Bill Gross credited much of his investment success to his early days spent playing the casino game, according to CNNMoney.

How exactly does the constitution, Declaration of Independence and saving companies relate to gambling?
Constitution is for guidelines and standards.
And if a person loses all their money from "gambling" will they be happy? Probably not. The Declaration of Independence relates to the worth happiness to live for.
I see no purpose in using gambling as a way to saving companies? Which is right cheating to save something or actually laboring to earn the money to help save something??
Fedex ships about 6.9 million packages a day. If that company went bankrupt, then those 6.9 million packages will need to find alternatives. However, Fedex did not go bankrupt because of gambling.
My opponent stated "I see no purpose in using gambling as a way to saving companies?" but are there any viable alternatives? Perhaps the lottery, but you have a 1 in 175,000,000 chance of winning. Bankruptcy? You lose your business. Loans? You'll need to pay back later. With interest. For example, WW1. Germany had to pay for the war. They took loans from the US, and didn't finish paying us until 2010. Gambling is good depending on the beholder and their reasons. Like Fedex, they had good reasons.
So for these reasons and more, I ask a pro ballot.
My opponent suggests that the US Constitution is a reliable source to accept gambling. It is not right. Stealing is never right for anyone; even for the Governmental stances. Gambling is a source of cheating and unreliances in the end. Regardless to my opponents claim of the Constitution, declaration of Independence and saving companies to use gambling is really uneccesary because things should be handled in a more professional and modest way. Do things ever work out that way? No, everyone wants things done they're way and on they're timing. I think gambling should be looked more in depth to before considering it even in the Government.

Thank you for another chance to debate this topic. Despite the debates, I was certainly interested in as to what you were trying to say. But not that I agree with it or anything. I still stand to gambling wrong and should not be used in any stance.
Best wishes to my opponent!
