Priceless

Pro

This debate will involve arguing that secession, defined as the act of withdrawing from a political entity, should be a right that states within the US should be allowed to exercise. I will be arguing on the pro side that US states should be allowed to secede from the Union and create their own independent nations. The con will be arguing that they should not be allowed to secede.

First round: acceptance
Second round: Opening arguments
Third round: Rebuttals
Fourth round: closing remarks

I look forward to a spirited and good debate!

Con

I believe that they shall not be able to secede from our government, If they are able to there is a great chance that we will be plunged into another civil war!

I think they should not be allowed because after all, United States is supposed to be a nation comprising of different states that are united. There has to be a conformity between states and that, they shouldn't be withdrawn in terms of politics.

They should be allowed. However this would start a Civil War again. We could use one to stir the pot a little. Status Quo is so boring. I think we need to do away with Capitalism. It breeds corruption, greed. If someone with a brilliant mind could have lead the Wall Street protesters, we could have made drastic changes that are needed.
