With John McCain, the highest chance of World War III will be upon us.

Johnicle

Warmongering... John McCain seems to be receiving this adjective more and more lately. Throughout this round I will prove that John McCain is a warmonger but more importantly, he will give us the greatest chance to be a part of the 3rd World War (which is obviously a bad thing)... ========== Beginning with quotes from John McCain: Questioner- "President Bush has talked about us staying in Iraq for 50 years" John McCain- "Maybe a hundred. That be fine with me..." John McCain- "We wer...

McCain and Obama should not be allowed on the 2008 Presidential Ballot in Texas.

Johnicle

Ladies and Gentleman, I come to you with blatant ignorance of the law. Let me explain to you: The deadline for candidates to get their name on the ballot in Texas was August 26th @ 5:00 p.m. BOTH the Republicans and Democrats MISSED this deadline by not turning in the papers on time. By ANY interpretation of the law, they should not be allowed to be on the ballot, however, the Secretary of State in Texas seems to be poised to ignore this, and allow them on the ballot anyway. ==============...

The term "Assault Weapon" is a liberal media created scare tactic.

aaronr8684

I propose the following arguments. 1. The term "Assault Weapon" is a term created by the liberal media to scare the general public into believing it's ultimate hidden agenda (gun bans). 2. The classification of a "Assault Weapon" is flawed and is based on looks and "scary features" instead of actual firearm capabilities. The purpose of this debate is to prove/disprove the concept of the "Assault Weapon". Good luck!...

Taxation is the confiscation of individual life and liberty and should therefore be minimized.

HandsOff

Life is represented by time on earth. Money is a representation of the time spent earning it. Liberty, in a popular sense, is one's ability to do with his life (i.e. time and money) what he sees fit, as long as he does not infringe on the rights of others. It follows that confiscating one's money is no different than confiscating his life and liberty. I do not make this point as an argument against taxation. I believe minimal taxation is necessary to provide for the defense of basic freedoms...

A debate on a provocative topic.

LR4N6FTW4EVA

I will list three provocative topics. I am going to support the one of your choosing. So in your R1 post, tell me what you want to debate. 1. Cannibalism of non-diseased human carcasses is a superior alternative to cremation or burial. 2. The world would be better off with a capitalist anarchy. (If you don't know what I mean by that, I'll explain in my R2 post. Basically though, it means that corporations rule the world.) 3.Agriculture was a BIG mistake--that is, man should never have made...

Human activity is adversely affecting the environment & having a negative impact on humankind

sadolite

The evidence of human activity damaging our own habitat, the Earth, is based on sound, credible science. This includes, but not limited to, climate change. The denials are based on economic interests of businesses, particularly, but not limited to, oil industry, with similar tactics and motives used by tobacco industry (whom denied the health problems associated with tobacco use). The denials of scientific findings are motivated by money; with the intent to alter public opinion and maintain t...

You should be allowed to bump people with your car.

Logical-Master

Have you ever been driving down the road and a group of people are standing in the middle of the road? They see you coming, they see you getting closer and closer yet they just sit there with some dumb look on their face. Some times they are riding bikes and swerve like they are going to turn in front of you and other times they just stand their ground, flip you off or yell some obscenity at you as you are forced to drive around them. I think you should be able to run into them to teach them a l...

R: It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of many innocent people.

LR4N6FTW4EVA

"It is the greatest good to the greatest number of people which is the measure of right and wrong." It's because that I agree with this quote by Jeremy Bentham that I urge an affirmation of the resolution. "It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of many innocent people." [Definitions] For clarity I pose the following definitions. 1. Morally permissible: conforming to a circumstantial standard of right behavior. 2. More: a larger quantitative amount...
