Canada should be pro global warming

imabench
Avador

Reasons why Canada should be Pro the warming of the Earth: 1) Opening of the Northwest Passage. The Northwest passage is a supposed water route between Europe and Asia through the northern waters of Canada that has long been sought after by explorers. Ice sheets that froze over the oceans naturally prevented such a passage from ever being open, but that changed in 2009 when global warming opened up the Northwest passage for the first time, albeit only briefly during summer https://en.w...

The NFL should merge with the CFL (Canadian Football League) if it is looking to expand

Trying out the 'no vote comments' option just to see how it goes. 3 rounds only so first round you can already accept and post counter arguments. 7k char limitI believe that the if the NFL, the National Football League, wishes to add more franchises to itself in an attempt to increase revenue or expand its influence, than the best option for them to pursue would be to merge with the Canadian Football League, its neighbor to the north. My opponent will argue AGA...

Voters pick whoever has the FANCIEST insults overall, fanciest being defined a...

Should the US and the world formally recognize 'Somaliland' as its own independent country?

imabench
PlagueDoctor

Somaliland is a breakaway providence of the failed nation-state of Somalia that has attempted to claim autonomy for itself since 1991, in the same way the Kurdish people of northern Iraq have been trying to do for themselves in their fight against ISIS. Despite nearly 25 years of relative independence though, the nations of the world, including the United States, still do not recognize Somaliland as its own country independent from the rest of Somalia. https://en.wikipedia.org/w...

Marco Rubio has a better chance at becoming the GOP candidate than Rand Paul

imabench
barebels58

I believe, and shall argue, that Marco Rubio has a better chance of winning the GOP nomination for president in 2016 than Rand Paul. Con shall argue otherwise. This debate is NOT about who SHOULD be the nominee, just who is more LIKELY to be the nominee. First round is OPTIONAL acceptance only. If Con decides to argue in the first round though he must then not post counter arguments in the last round. 4 rounds, 4,000 characters....

LEAST ideal candidate for President

imabench

We've seen a load of debates where people argue that someone is the BEST person to be President in 2016, but I havent seen one where someone argues who is the LEAST qualified. So here we are. Con will pick whoever they believe is the least qualified person to be president in round 1 I will then reveal my pick for the least qualified person and begin arguments. LIST OF PEOPLE YOU CAN PICK (those who have actually declared)(Failure to pick one of the options results in a full forfeit)...
