I say they should because eventually, man kind will murder the Earth with it's economic activities so we'll need somewhere to live. It would be simple. We start doing experiments on how to convert what little air is in the martian atmosphere into breathable air, put that system into a building and then build enough of those buildings to fit at least 1000-2000 people each (or as many as every country in this world). Getting there would be easy too. Build a lot of rocket ships and ride those the...

Increasing the federal minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $10.10 per hour will mostly benefit the U.S. Economy. This will be my position in this debate.Con will argue that raising the federal minimum wage will either have no benefit for anyone or will hurt the U.S. economy.I will use numerous reliable, reputable sources to show that an increase in the federal minimum wage will grow national GDP by tens of billions of dollars...

Does our US army interrogators, themselves, deserve to be tortured at the hands of the enemy?

I will argue Con, against the unjustified torture of our fine service men. A rule of the torture game: What happens to someone else, can also happen to you. So we prepare our men for the worst imaginable scenario in their SERE training. The enemy decides to torture our soldiers! But our soldiers have only done their duty. It may be disgusting, but an order is an order, and a soldier should always follow orders. Which they have done. This is the argument, on which I rest my case, t...

Pennies should stop being produced in the U.S.

lannan13

I think that pennies should stop being produced by the U.S. mint and taken out of circulation, similar to what Canada did. The penny costs more to make then it's worth, it's rarely actually used. It's a detriment to our economy. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2-4: ArgumentsRound 5: Closing statements. ...
