Hey guys! Right now, I really need some help for an IRL project. I won't use any of this on the sites debating, only in IRL. I have 3 topics, which are easy, and I really need to research them. I'll need 5 arguments to support each side of the topics. 5 for pro on each topic and 5 for con on each topic.

Topics are:
1. Have 3 political parties
2. Ban single use shopping bags
3. Texting does more harm than good
Love ya DDO

1. Pro: The English proportional representation system allows for better representation of the population. Encourages less party polarization. Allows for minority representation. Could encourage more participation in the system. Leads to a less of an issue with taking votes away like what Ross Perot did with the Reform Party

Con: Could actually encourage party polarization. Further divides the House. Would require a lengthy constitutional amendment. Divided vote would lead to less popular candidates. The third party could either be too close to the other 2 parties or a very small margin of popularity.

2. Pro: Recycling. Alternatives can carry more weight. Saves the store money from buying them. Prevents cluttering. Safer for children.

Con: Costly for the buyer. People might forget to bring them. Misjudging how much is necessary. Some stores will still make "cheap" versions. Vulnerable to water damage.

3. Pro: Car accidents. Superficial friendships. Dumbing down of the English langauge. Miscommunications. Generally distracting.

Con: Allows for easy communication. Keep in touch with other people without unnecessary calls. You don't have to "leave a message". Sends as soon as cell service is available. Could increase relations due to constant communication when not seeing each other.

1.Pro: Allows for a larger view on certain issues and more for those voting to thing about. Less chance of one party taking over the government through various means.

Con: Strengthening the electoral college by making the popular vote even less involved than it already is and making the bigger states more powerful in the government. (I'm anti electoral college)'

2.Pro: http://greentumble.com... (That explains it better than I could. Saves companies money so they could lower prices of their products.

Con: Less convenient and makes the costumer pay for the bag making shopping more costly.

3.Pro: Students being distracted as well as drivers and a variety of other reasons that I'm to lazy to think of right now.

Con: http://www.mosio.com... Same reason as above and also I am lazy.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.
