protests dharnas and fasts a correct way by citizens to get their demand fulfilled
Debate Rounds (3)
Now to get started I would like you to define correct for me.
1) I think protesting is right, but sometimes it gets out of hand. Protesting should only be a last resort to get what you want. Protesting could eventually lead to riots like at the Chicago Democratic National Convention in 1968. The police might have to restort to force because that is the position they would be put by the protestors. So protesting can get violent and we all do not want that to happen. You can cause vadalism, injury, and catastrophe.
2) Can you get what you want through protests? When the healthcare bill was announced people protested against it, but it was still passed. When in Wisconsin a budget repair bill was announced many people protested, but the bill still got passed. When protestors wanted Richard Nixon to get impeached, he instead resigned. President Pierce passed the Kansas-Nebraska Act under alot of protest, but it was still passed. Protestors wnated Lyndon Johnson to leave Vietnam, but he did not.
1) The government prefers to listen to rational people instead of people that yell in the streets and block traffic. In some cases the protestors make themselves look bad by the way they do things if they hurt people. When politicians here what we want they run for president to do those things. So we vote for which man we believe can do good. Protestors are usually the opposing members who voted for the loser.
2) Protests do not acheive everything and sometimes anything. How about you instead right emails or use a hotline then go in the streets and hold signs that the elected representiatives may not read. Protests in the UK occured over the death of a guy and that seems pointless and there are more reasons to that on why they are protesting, but really the death of some guy caused thousands to vandalize London.
My opponent seems to not care about adding external links to help her argument, so why should add myn.
