should the US hold back on helping other Country until they fix it self
Debate Rounds (3)
I accept the debate. First, I would like you to list out the problems that the U.S. has that concern you in regards to this debate.
Thanks and I look forward to your response!
azzy forfeited this round.
Since my opponent forfeited, I will quickly lay out a case.
First, I asked him what things the U.S. needs to fix. He didn't respond. There are many things wrong with America. Unemployment, abortion, debt... As bad as these things are, every country has similar issues. After all, no one is perfect. The thing that the U.S. does have is resources and an army capable of assisting other nations. I see no reason not to help other countries if we have the resources to do so.
Another reason why my opponent is wrong is because of the way he wrote the resolution. He is purporting that the U.S. can only help other countries if it has no issues to fix. This is impossible because nobody's perfect, much less an entire country.
The U.S. undeniably has problems, but so does all the other counties in the world. However, the U.S. undeniably has the resources to assist other nations. Why should they have to "fix itself" before helping others?
Anyway, my point is this: Yes, we have issues. The U.S. isn't perfect - I think we can all agree on that.
But nobody's perfect and some countries need help. The U.S. is the most powerful country today and it has the ability to assist other nations. Again, we have a lot of issues but so does everyone else.
I like to look at Grenada... They are a small island nation that was being attacked by an evil military coup. The U.S. intervened and helped them and today the Grenadines hold a celebration day to thank the U.S. for its efforts.
So, in conclusion, the U.S. is not perfect - but no country is. The U.S. has the ability to help other nations and spread American ideas throughout the world. I believe that the U.S. should continue to do this.
