I accept the challenge and I understand that I am taking the stance that I am against us not having bills for our houses.

I hope that this will be a serious debate and a fun debate.

Good luck, and may the best man (or woman) win.

Of course, a forfeiture, why am I not surprised.

Oh well, I will go ahead and state my arguments.

We should have bills for our houses. If you do not have bills for your house, who will pay the seller of the house the money that they deserve? If there is no money going into the house market, the market will inevitably crash. The housing market is a major part of the American economy, and if we do not put any money into the market, the American economy will suffer.

Well, what about the utility bills? We still need those too. If no one paid the utility companies, the companies would go "belly up," which would further the downward spiral of the American economy.

Now, I will briefly discuss your argument "people would not loose there house cause we wont have to pay for heat water or any bills." There is only one thing I have to say to this; don't buy a house that you cannot afford. If you cannot pay the bills of the house you bought, oh well, shouldn't have bought the house. Simple logic, people. Use your brains.

People would not have a house of there was no economy. You HAVE to have bills to pay for resources, to keep the economy balanced. If we do not have bills, the American (or whatever country in which you reside) economy would recess, depress, and then eventually collapse. The country would ultimately be in anarchy; in unprecedented chaos.

Oh, just for clarity, you actually DID forfeit; a forfeiture on this website is being unable to publish your argument, of which you were not able to do.

Lastly, you must have a HUGE school considering that it took 3 days for you to get class (he said in obvious sarcasm and not in offense to the distinguished opponent).

Thank you for debating, and may the best man win.

@Unitomic Saying that people who can afford something should also pay for those who can't, is crazy. You cant just take money from people and give it to others who have less wealth. Have a house is not a right.

@Libertatis, Taxpayers obviously. We obviously can't blame financially inept people for purchasing homes they can't afford, and it's only right that the people who don't have to deal with utility bills (from not owning homes) should give some of their free money to ease the cost. Needless to say, the Homeowners will get tax cuts to help ease their pain. Why pay, when you can make everyone else pay. (sarcasm)

There is a real world out there.If YOU use the water, YOU pay for it. If YOU live in a house, YOU pay for it.If YOU use the electric, YOU pay for it.

Unless YOU are a freeloader off of other peoples labor.

Wouldn't that be nice? But I regret to say, even the air we breathe is not free.
