Were the american colonists justified in fighting a war to break away from Britain

sheepgirl1202

I believe that the american colonists were justified in breaking away. They were threatened with many taxes to pay for protection they didn't want in the first place. The colonists tried writing letters to talk to the king but the British only responded by giving them MORE taxes. Not to mention the British troops that stayed in the New York harbor all day. The colonists tried to peacefully write to the king but he wouldn't listen. That caused the colonists to use force against them and start the...

Resolved: Universities in the US ought not restrict any constitutionally protected speech

rzentmayer

I am a student participating in Lincoln-Douglas debate and would like to bring my resolution here in order to better my case. I'd like to structure this like a common LD debate in which morality is of the utmost value and more important than other factors such has practicality or efficiency. To write an LD cases values, definitions, value criterion, and moral frameworks are used. If you need clarification for the format of this debate I'd be happy to respond in the comments. Remember, this is ju...

AOW Debate (Shattered World, Game II)

Name1

This is a war debate. I was playing another one, but the other person forfeited and the system never updates so I created this one. I will be playing again as the People's Republic of Southern China. These are the rules: 1. If you take this debate, tell the name of your country, and tell the numbers of your armed forces for things like vehicles (aircraft, ships, tanks, armored cars), men, missiles, and hackers (Yes, certain countries have the ability to do cyberwarfare). You can not play a...

The United States congress should be dismantled and replaced with a direct democratic voting system

Basically, the system would be that the people themselves would be the law-makers. There would still be a president, and (s)he would be the commander-in-chief and can veto legislation brought out by the people, who then still need a 2/3 majority to surpass the president's veto. The supreme court would still exist and can declare things unconstitutional as they do now. Basically it would work the same as it does now, just we are replacing congress with the people. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2...

Menstruation. Something that is unavoidable women. Thousands of impoverished girls risk their own health and safety without access to these necessary products. Reverting to makeshift methods like plastic or grocery bags to try to keep themselves clean. While condoms are made readily available for free in various locations, girls in shelters and prisons and even some schools are denied easy access to these vital items. Should these products be made free and available to those in the aforementione...
