Are you asking for short pro/con arguments for each topic?
"The solution [for Republicans] is to admit that Bush was a bad president, stop this racist homophobic stuff, stop trying to give most of the tax cuts to the rich, propose a real alternative to Obamacare that actually works, and propose smart free market solutions to our economic problems." - Distraff

"Americans are better off in a dynamic, free-enterprise-based economy that fosters economic growth, opportunity and upward mobility." - Paul Ryan

THW Allow Free Distribution of Music on the Internet

con would be discrimination against the artists and violation of copyright laws they have over the songs

THBT Pharmaceutical Companies should hold Patents on Medical Discoveries

con would argue that those companies also have copyright laws over the drugs they themselves manufacture and that to deny them those patents would be a violation of property rights

TH Supports Free Immigration

con would argue that free immigration would cost the state ons of money, it would be much harder to record all who immigrate to the US, and the con could even throw in arguments about how immigration can be harmful to society

Pro would say that it would save money.
con would say it would destroy innovation, why create something if you gain nothing from it.

THBT Pharmaceutical Companies should hold Patents on Medical Discoveries

Pro would say it enhances innovation
con would point that it reduces innovation, and increases costs and monopolizies the sector

TH Supports Free Immigration

Pro would say it would increase wages for most workers, increase estate value, and use freedom to allow people from elsewhere to enjoy America
con would say it would depress wages (mostly for low skill workers, such as high school dropouts)
