Those with serious congenital defects should be sterilised.
Top scientists and athletes should be forcibly bred together.
The Holocaust never happened.
The Armenian Holocuast never happened.
Masturbation makes you blind.
The Boy Scouts are Controlled by Reptillians.
It is impossible for mankind to ever know how much wood a woodchuck would chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.
If aliens exist they don't want to have sex with us.

Come on... just brainstorm.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Well it depends on what you're interested in. For me personally, some future debate topics would be:

People should be allowed to sell their organs.
The FDA should be abolished.
The Fed should be abolished.
"Social contracts" are not an adequate justification for government.
Meth should be legalized.

But I don't know what you'd be interested in.
Should we subsidize education?

I volunteer to be Con to this one, if any actually want to defend its pro. It would be fun to argue that I am not controlled by a Reptillian.

If you are worried that you are then ask your scout master to say "Ka nama kaa lajerama".

I am part of the organization. how could the whole of it ever be controlled and I not be controlled to some degree?

if a whole organization is being controlled it's still necessary that certain key individuals be the target of the manipulation. and all under those key people are indirectly controlled by the reptiles.

What do they teach kids these days... but yea, it's from Conan/Lovecraft. They hate to hear it and are apparently unable to say it.

I'll be PRO...?

YOu are saying that... if a woodchuck could chuck wood it would be a measurable amount of wood that would be chucked, if it could be chucked, that could be checked would it be chucked? Or...since a woodchuck can't chuck wood, it wouldn't be an amount of wood that could be checked on the chuck, so therefore it is not a measurable amount of chucked wood to be checked? And you're taking the Pro?
