Was Abolishing Slavery the Right Choice?

SinDarling

Back in the earliest century of America, there were 5 slave states and 6 free states, then a balance was starting to be created. People of the North, were against slavery, while people of the South were for slavery. In 1850, California became the 31st state, and due to popular sovereignty, it became a free state that would then throw off the balance of slave/free states. Two years later, Life Among the Lowly (also known as Uncle Tom's Cabin) was published, a book about a slave. For the first tim...

Trump should honestly be impeached

The nation is now witnessing a massive corruption of the presidency, far worse than Watergate. Indeed, Nixon White House Counsel John Dean has told reporters: "I don"t think Richard Nixon even comes close to the level of corruption we already know about Trump."[1] Given the opportunity of ten full weeks between the election and the inauguration to divest his business interests, Mr. Trump chose instead to announce, just nine days before inauguration, a wholly inadequate plan to step away from ope...

We are not directly involved in every political decision we elect others to do this for us. Republic Definition a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch.

More Guns Creates a Safer Society

Zoecri

Hi, so I saw your opinion on assault weapons and I thought you may like to have a debate concerning the 2nd Amendment and Gun Rights. My position is that more guns = less crime, whilst your position will be the opposite (more guns = more crime).

Death Penalty

luis_yt
TheOneFootTallBrickWall

We reserve the death penalty in the United States for the most heinous murders and the most brutal and conscienceless murderers. This is not, as some critics argue, a kind of state-run lottery that randomly chooses an unlucky few for the ultimate penalty from among all those convicted of murder. Rather, the capital punishment system is a filter that selects the worst of the worst... Put another way, to sentence killers like those described above to less than death would fail to do justice bec...
