Reformist
smya_8

I am challenge samaya to this debateThe resolution: A Totalatarian State is more effective than a Democratic StateI will be arguing for the stance of a moderate Totalatarian state where people still elect leaders but it is only one party. This party controls everything but has some exceptions to its power such as rights of the individuals. It is somewhat constrained by things like the U.S constitution. However it can bypass things such as a senate and a ho...

American Gun Control

Sarah314
Reformist

Gun control, defined as the banning of fire arms, is unconstitutional. The Second Amendment clearly states that it is "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." The Founding Fathers knew what they were doing when they inserted this into the Bill of Rights. We need to be able to legally defend ourselves. People who feel that they are above the law, essentially criminals, will go to any means to see their goals come to pass. That could mean obtaining guns on the Blac...

Should America put more restrictions on Immigration?

MorganOfFreemans
Sarah314

It"s no doubt that in the world today there are people less fortunate than ourselves. In the United States we"re privileged to live in such a peaceful country. In countries such as Syria, families and people alike have to worry about the threat that is ISIS. We hear about these things in the media of how war-torn and dangerous other countries conditions are, but we truly never have lived or experienced these things. Restricting Legal Immigration even further will complicate the system even furth...

Would prison sentences be more reasonable if all judges were required to spend a day in prison?

Dannyx
OtisBDriftwood

I think it would be fair if a judge was required to spend a day in prison before sentencing one to prison time. If that judge (who I'm assuming has never been to prison, otherwise how would they become a judge) was required to spend a day in prison before sentencing one would make for a more fair sentence because in my own opinion, after that Oklahoma cop got 263 years in prison for rape, I don't think it's fair. The guy is a horrible person, yes, but how is he supposed to learn from his mistake...

The School System is Sexist (Against Boys)

kkmoehn
zman8881

The school system, in the United States, is sexist against males. Picture this: A school gymnasium full of high school students, their parents, teachers, and the principal. The principal finishes announcing the Honor Roll students and is now preparing for the big award, AKA the Top Ten of each grade. She starts with the freshmen. "Amanda, Arianna, Kayla, Vanessa, Lauren, Elizabeth, Sarah, Adrienne...etc." Notice anything in common? Yes, all ten are girls. The top 5% of the class is full of fem...
