Looking for a member of the Pacifist Party of America
Debate Rounds (4)
I am going to be taking the stance that the United States and every country in the world should undergo unilateral disarmament. Most importantly eradication of all chemical, nuclear and biological weapons. A huge reduction in military spending and size. Also, a removal of the border fence and an end to the war on drugs. I hope its ok but i don't want to argue over gun rights and the second amendment because i am a libertarian on this issue and i think that enforcing a ban on guns is contradictory to pacifist principles.
You start, good luck
We don't need chemical or biological weapons and we will never use them, ever.
So theirs no need for them to exist, all their doing is taking up space and time.
Second, we spend more than the next 14 world powers on defense. 14, that incredible, more than Russia, China, India, Iran, North Korea and all unfriendly countries and rivals. Why do we need to spend this much? Were trillion of dollars in debt, have millions of people in poverty and we're spend all this money to maintain a military that will never be used. Some paranoid people say that we need a strong military to counter Russia and China, but let's get real we're not going to get invaded by China. Secondly we have military bases all over the world. Thousand of troops still remain in Germany. Why do we need to keep spending all this money on troops in Germany? I thought conservatives and libertarians were supposed to be fiscally responsible.
Terrorist are not going to destroy America. It's not going to happen, that's just paranoia. And the only reason terrorist hate us is because of our pro war policies in the first place. If we weren't getting involved in the Middle East so much maybe people wouldn't be do inclined to hate us. And why do we need nuclear weapons anyway? Why do some countries need to process weapons That can destroy the world? And I'm advocating for universal disarmament. That includes all other superpowers.
An invasion from who? That's just paranoia. Th United States will not be invaded by anyone. So why do we need to continue spending so much on a military that just collects dust?
It's been fun and a great debate.
