It's nearly impossible to win a one round debate.

Tatarize

No matter what I say in the first round, it opens up for one quick counter argument and no chances at rebuttal. There's the off chance that the opponent fails to read the topic appropriately but those are fairly rare. Largely the only person who would take such a debate is somebody who has thought of some clever way to counter the original argument. For example, this debate might be countered with various claims and accusations and I would be powerless to rebut those claims and thus lose....

the Obama administration shouldn't try to defend their policies to Republicans or anyone else

sadolite

When anyone who opposes some policy of the Obama administration, The administration should just say no comment rather than try to explain it. Whenever they do this they just raise more questions than they answer. The Obama administration does not need to convince anyone of anything. They control the White house and both branches of government. They should just ramrod everything through and just let whoever complains, cry all they want. Once Gov't passes something it is there forever. They could...

The global warming hockey stick is bad science

RoyLatham

The global warming hockey stick is a graph of global temperature over time. It was produced by a scientist named Mann, who first published it in a scientific journal in the mid-nineties. He modified and included it in the 2000 report of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It is called a hockey stick because it shows very little variation of climate for the past thousand years until the 20th century, when temperatures soared. That makes the graph look like a hockey stick on its side...

Abortion is a form of murder

PervRat

This is, I believe, the most contentious and embattled political issue of all time. I am actually quite afraid to take it on, especially being so new here, but I hope my unique position (an anti-abortion atheist) might make things more challenging than usual for an opponent otherwise equally entrenched, because they would be accustomed to dealing with religious arguments I will not use. Because of the contentiousness, and admittedly selfishly to allow myself more leeway to amend whatever scre...

Corporate greed is more harmful than taxes collected by the government

PervRat

I put the topic up for debate that: Corporate greed is more harmful than taxes collected by the government I declare that PRO (myself) shall need to prove, to win this debate, that Corporate greed has a greater cost with a lower return to the people of the United States than taxes collected by the United States government (and state and local governments). I declare that CON shall need to establish the converse: that the taxes collected by the government are a worse harm than corporate gree...
