My initial feelings on the suggested topics, which are subject to change with the availability of new information. Knowing this may come in handy later.

1. Mandatory organ procurement from the deceased is morally justifiable. (I'm con)
5. Laws prohibiting consensual sodomy are immoral. (Pro)
6. Individuals ought to help those in need of assistance. (Con)
7. Preserving biodiversity ought to take priority over a nation's economic development. (Con)
8. The U.S. should turn over most of its military installations in Japan to the Japanese government. (Pro)
10. The Church ought to be Separated from the State. (In the United states yes, but the decision needs to be made in a country by country basis. If people want to have the church govern they should be allowed that option.)
12. Government ought to be abolished. (Con)
13. Recreational use of marijuana should be made legal by the U.S. Federal Government within the next 5 years. (Pro)
14. The rich have a moral obligation to donate to the poor. (Con)
15. Torture is morally permissible in some situations. (Pro)
16. Governments ought to pursue libertarian ideals over social welfare policy. (Pro)
18. Prostitution should be legalized and regulated. (This is weird for a libertarian, but con)
19. Theft is morally permissible in many situations. (Pro)
20. Sin taxes are justifiable. (Con)
22. Rehabilitation ought to be prioritized over retribution in the criminal justice system. (Pro)
23. It is morally permissible for victims to use deadly force as a deliberate response to repeated domestic violence. (Pro)
24. The use of nuclear weapons is immoral. (Con)

26. The use of drones in conflict is immoral.(con)
28. The U.S. should re-acquire the capacity to launch manned space missions from its own territory. (Pro)
32. Freedom is more precious than security. (Pro)
34. Traditional marriage is the only type of marriage condoned by the Bible. (Con)
36. Civil disobedience is always preferable to violent revolution. (Con)
37. The Problem of Evil disproves the existence of an Omnibenevolent deity. (Con)
38. Globalism is a force for good in the modern era. (It has the capability to be but right now is a mixed bag. I could almost take either side on this).
39. Societies ought to provide humanitarian assistance to nations ravaged by humanitarian crises. (Con)
41. Vigilantism is morally permissible. (Pro)
43. The U.S. should adopt $10.10 as a nation-wide minimum wage. (Pro)
44. Psychoanalytic psychology is not reliable. (Pro)
47. The Fourteenth Amendment's equal protection clause was only intended to protect against race-based discrimination. (Pro)
52. The hunting of critically endangered animals can be justifiably prohibited. (Pro)
58. The U.S. should significantly increase its investments in green energy sources over the next decade. (Con)

Thank you for the compliment. I was only ten when I first made that name. Making a cool enough name at that age is a feat I'm proud of.

Honestly, I'm a little intimidated by the experience of my opponent, compared to my two pre-voted debates, but I'm ready nonetheless.
That moment where you're bored and want to do a debate, then you're doing four all at once.
