I affirm: Judicial Activists should not be appointed to the Supreme Court. [Definitions] Judicial activism: the term used to describe the actions of judges who go beyond their constitutionally prescribed duties of applying law to the facts of individual cases, and "legislate" from the bench. These judges create new constitutional rights, amend existing ones, or create or amend existing legislation to fit their own notions of societal needs. [Contentions] Contention I: Judicial Acti...

The existence of a god is a logical certainty

LR4N6FTW4EVA

First, to thank my opponent in advance for accepting this debate. I would prefer that an atheist or agnostic accepts this debate, as I would like to see them uphold their beliefs. Now, defining terms: Existence is defined by Merriam-Webster as "actual or present occurrence" to clarify, this means that there is or once was (for the purposes of this debate) a god (at least that's what I have to prove) a god for this debate, to limit the parameters of this debate is a being or a group of bei...

The concept of Libertarianism

notpolicydebategod

I understand that the topic is very vague. I will be definding Libertarianism. Libertarianism is the concept that every person has the right to do as they wish as long as they are not infringing on anyone else's happiness or freedom. An example would be drug legalisation. Each person has the right to f*ck themselves up but the second that they steal from someone to get more drugs, they are wrong. It is better than liberalism. Liberals tolerate all lifestyles and actions that do not hurt...

Hands Off Economics Does Not Work

My argument is a very simple, competition drives the free market. Here is the problem in order for something to be a competition you must be competing to win. What happens when there is a winner in the free market, there is a monopoly which kills the free market system, there is no longer any choice in what you buy. If you take away the competition that drives the market there is no longer any reason to produce and again the free market fails. So if you choose to leave the market alone it is bou...

Resolved: Legalizing gay marriage would be better than legalizing Civil Unions.

Pluto2493

First I would like the person that accepts this debate be on the side of (or at least pretending for educational purposes) supporting Civil Unions. Please do not simply say neither should be implemented. First I would like to define some terms. Gay Marriage is letting homosexuals to have the exact same certificates and rights as a regular heterosexual marriage. Civil unions were created in 2000 to provide legal protections to gays and lesbians in relationships in that state because gay marr...
