For those who know absolutely nothing about politics, Republicans and Democrats re the two main political parties. Democrats typically follow the political ideology of "liberal", while Republicans are generally "conservative". Liberals believe that everyone has equal opportunity. They believe that the government must alleviate any social issues and fix all issues. Conservatives believe responsibility, limited government, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and a strong national defense. They believe the role of government should be to provide people the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals. Conservative policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.

For my first argument, I will state major issues and why I believe Republicans are correct. Again, this is generally what people in the parties believe, and OF COURSE there are Republicans who have a more liberal ideology and Democrats who believe what conservatives do. But I am saying what the majority of each party believes. I assume my opponent will challenge a couple things and I will then expand on the argument, this first argument is just more of an overview.

Economics: Republicans believe taxes should not be increased and wages are decided by the free market. Democrats want higher taxes toward the rich and an increased minimum wage. Higher taxes going only toward those with more money. HOW DOES THAT DECREASE INEQUALITY? This also leads towards socialism, where everyone has equal money. If anyone is wondering why socialism is counterproductive:
Let's say for example that a brain surgeon and a janitor live next to each other. (yes, this is improbable, judging by their comparative salaries, but for the example, let's allow it). The brain surgeon works 60 hours a week and has had 10 years of schooling to get where he is. At the end of each week his extra money is given to the janitor. The surgeon will stop working because he will just be given money, and the domino effect takes place over the whole country. Socialism works in theory, but in reality it can NEVER work.
An increased minimum wage is ineffective because it merely causes inflation. (For those who do not know how inflation works: http://money.howstuffworks.com...).

Military Spending: Republicans want to increase spending. This is necessary because we need to defend ourselves. ISIS has launched a war against us and acts of terror around the world prove they are not bluffing. We have to defend ourselves and cannot stop spending money that is needed to fuel the military that is protecting the important rights commonly debated on this very website.

Gay Marriage: Republicans oppose gay marriage. However, this is one of the topics that has many Republicans as well as Democrats on its side. I will not debate this topic unless requested to, as it is a much larger topic. (I am against gay marriage.)

Abortion: Republicans oppose abortion. This is a larger topic as well, so I will put the link to another one of my debates. (My opponent has started forfeiting rounds and I would not mind debating someone.) http://www.debate.org...

Death Penalty: Republicans are in favor of the death penalty. This is correct because there ARE crimes that require the upmost punishment: death. Crime must not be tolerated and have to be punished.

Immigration: Republicans are against amnesty for undocumented (illegal) immigrants. They support greater border control (i.e. Trump's wall, something that is an extreme example).

Thank you for accepting red_x and good luck!

While I agree Holiday is a good song, I prefer good 'ol classic rock. Aerosmith and KISS in particular.
