Pro

Would you be willing to donate to help start an organization to provide financial assistance for medical use to the transgender community knowing your donation was not tax deductible? If you run a company would you be willing to sponsor such a start up organization?

Con

This is not a debate topic. Pro simply gave two questions and posed no argument. So, I will argue why I would not donate and answer the questions since I am taking the Con side to: "Would you donate?" So this is why I would not donate and to answer your questions.

"Would you be willing to donate to help start an organization to provide financial assistance for medical use to the transgender community knowing your donation was not tax deductible?"

No

"If you run a company would you be willing to sponsor such a start up organization?"

No.

Now, here's why.
1. Donating takes away money from me - You see, I also need money to pay for my life, which includes my education, my health, my job, and pretty much everything else that require money in life including my life.
2. Donating requires the giving of money to another:
do"na"tion
noun
1.an act or instance of presenting something as a gift, grant, or contribution.
2.a gift, as to a fund; contribution.

This is simply something that I just don't do.
3. Donation negatively affects me - In a messed up world we live in today, people need to survive by prosperity in the financial level and to be economically sound. This just doesn't work if you are poor, starving, and dying. Money can practically buy all three of these things. You can't be poor in money if you have money. You can buy food for yourself so that you don't starve. This practically contributes to not dying as you won't starve and you have enough food to put onto the table. So, if I were to donate money, then it can cost me a job, my family, my health, and basically, my life.

Although the second question does not deal with: "Would you donate?" I will now give why, unless I am donating my time and effort; in which case, I will tell you why I would not donate my time and effort to sponsor my company.

1. Time is money - https://www.google.com...
Its a perfect balance of equal mass. Also, the picture says so, even though it's not exactly the same, but still, that's life.

2. You can't trust the system -
https://www.google.com...
I'd rather not give that guy the money.
3. Anarchy shows us the way - This is technically true. What is anarchy? Anarchy is political and social disorder due to the absence of governmental control. The way is a method, plan, or means for attaining a goal. How does this work? The way of attaining a goal through the absence of governmental control AKA anarchy. How does this fit with why I shouldn't sponsor a company that I started? Because I am the government. Since anarchy shows us the way, I have no control of the company, which was controlled by the government. Since there is no government, the company is controlled by no one and it collapses, and there is no way for the company to prosper so the money is lost all because of anarchy showing us the way.

Con

Well, it's a full forfeit. Vote Con!

Now I will show you entertaining (depending on how awesome you are) about donating money to charity.

Yes, that looks painful! Regardless of the fact that it is helpful to a certain community and that I didn't watch it, you can feel emotional pain and physical pain for donating for a cause. Well, if you actually watched the video, you would know.

Thank you for a dumb debate that you will never notice again.

Reasons for voting decision: I am not sure what to say about this debate really. I cant judge on convincing arguments as Pro made none, so the have to go to Con. What was this debate about? Give Con points for conduct. What does this debate mean. Gives Con points for grammar.
