Government is not necessary to build roads.

BennyW
medv4380

I often hear it said that it is necessary for the government to build roads, implying or even stating that the private sector cannot do it. My goal in this debate is to refute that notion. By roads I am not merely talking about a small private side road but major roads that can be used by anyone. The first round is for acceptance only all other rounds are debate but no new points should be introduced the last round. If my potential opponent is confused about any aspect of this debate I would ask...

video debate on politics

ZakYoungTheLibertarian

My opponent will agree to a 15 minute video debate on a political topic. I am a libertarian. My opponent will take a position opposite me, i.e. in favour of a measure of government intervention in the economy, in favour of a price control etc. and I will be opposed. This is not a text debate. This is a video debate....

Should the united states become more invovled with ISIS

browley14

It's no secret that ISIS is storming through Iraq trying to make it an Islamic state. So then the question becomes, What do we do about it? I strongly believe that we need to intervene. If we allow this to grow then the entire Iraq war was for nothing....

Should guns be banned in America?

DisputesKing
GodWarrior

Guns should definitely be banned. As logic tells, without a purpose of attacking someone, why would it be necessary to own a gun if no one else has it. However, as we all know, the government cannot just simply pass a law to ban guns because of the lobbying of gun companies. Each years the gun companies lobby millions of dollars to political figures such as the president and senators. Therefore, it prevents them from simply banning guns. So, with this obstacle in the way, it is clear that gun ba...

Is racial profiling necessary to protect yourself against violence?

Robert_Weiler

Statistically, some groups are more likely to commit violence against others, and others are more likely to be victimized. For example, if you are a young, non-hispanic black between ages 10-24, according to the CDC you are 2.9 times more likely to be murdered over any other ethnic group in America. (http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/youthviolence/stats_at-a_glance/hr_age-race.html) Also according to the DoJ, 64.7% of all black crimes of violence are committed against other blacks. ([table 4...

New Zealand should change their national anthem

Finnianio

After watching the Commonwealth Games and hearing New Zealand's national anthem many times, I realised more and more that it does not reflect our country, mainly in religious ways. Even the title, 'God Defend New Zealand', I believe, does not represent our country properly. Not even 45% of our country is Christian, and this has been decreasing for at least the past 20 years. More than half of our country isn't even religious, so why are there so many references to god in our national anthem? I t...
