Whales should be the president

CaptainMax
lol101

IT IS TIME! WHEN WHALES WANT TO BECOME PRESIDENT. PRESIDENTS IS SOON GOING TO STEP DOWN FOR A PRESIDENT. NOW WHALES WANT THE STAND OF PRESIDENT! I think that whales shouldn't become the president. Because they are cursed with magic and also they like evil. So whales will turn our state to evil, which is not cool at all, because it is not. Whales are planning World Domination as for today, which is very odd. Because whales are whales. Whales lives in the ocean, and they eat fish. They can't e...

Is our government a terrorist?

I want to say that the reason I created this debate was to inform and also see from another person's point of view on this. We all know that some tragic things have happened not that long ago. 9/11 for example. A terrorist attack right? About 3,000 people died in that attack. But if we think back years and years ago, Didn't we bomb Afghanistan and kill more than 15,000 innocent people? Yeah it was because of the weapons of mass destruction that weren't found. And the terrorists that were neve...

The Confederate Flag.

Canatheist

The Confederate flag IS racist. In no way does it show that people fight for this country, it is a symbol of mistakes. It is the exact same situation as when Hitler took the Swastika and turned it into a racist flag. It only takes a slip up to make an innocent symbol into a racist symbol. If anyone honestly defends this flag, you're ruining the point of why this country came to be- human freedom. We are free to create a government to make everyone happy. This country is supposed to give religiou...

Capitalism vs. Socialism

bballcrook21
Idrees

Firstly, good luck to whomever may accept this challenge. There is a clear distinction in these systems, as neither can exist without a certain type of government. Socialism requires a centralized, looming federal government that restricts liberty for the good of the nation. Capitalism, on the other hand, requires a decentralized, hands off federal government that leaves most matters to local governments, as local governments can address issues with more precision. Socialism, on one hand,...
