Looking:- Private - Religion:Atheist
About Me:I am a 16 year old boy who fancies himself a cynical progressive. I like News. Politics. Religion. Pretty much anything that will start a debate I like.
Activities:JV Volleyball, Second Year Varsity Policy Debate - 2018 Wisconsin State Champion Boy Scouts
Beliefs:Religion: Atheist. I don't hate religion, but I certainly don't subscribe to religious dogma, mostly because I just don't see the evidence, and objective morality is repulsive for me. Politics: For you political compass fans, I'm dead center in the libertarian left quadrant. For everyone else, I'm a progressive. The government should hold a role in regulating the economy and providing services to the people, including universal healthcare and college. Furthermore, I do, to a certain extent, believe in redistribution of wealth to increase social equality, as that is just objectively better for everyone in society. American Politics: I'm a Sanders supporter, though he has flaws. I despise the Democratic Party, and Trump is terrible.
Books:No specific favorites, although John Grisham's books are interesting.
Movies:The Big Short - Highly underrated movie about the Great Recession; explaining the causes of it and how some men made billions from it.
Music:Alternative
Quotes:A black cat crossing your path signifies the animal is going somewhere.
- Groucho Marx

Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won't expect it back.
- Oscar Wilde

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do.
- Stephen Roberts

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

Gun control is unconstitutional

TigerThePredator
ConserativeDemocrat

The second amendment very clearly states "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." By implementing gun control, we are infringing the rights to bear arms, and therefore, we are implementing an unconstitutional law. Con can go first....

Is Abortion a good choice?

Triiozz
ConserativeDemocrat

I believe abortion is not a good or responsible choice for anyone unless they are a victim of rape or did not intentionally engage in any sexual acts. Abortion means you are taking away all the choices away from a soon to be human being just because of one horrible choice you made. Additionally, the abortion process can be mentally harmful to the woman who is going through the process. Abortion is not a good choice under almost all circumstances, and should be regulated and tightly controlled...

Was Star Wars: The Last Jedi a Bad Movie?

ConserativeDemocrat
I_just_plant_the_seed

With the release of The Last Jedi, it has quickly become the most polarizing Star Wars movie to date. I personally loved it, and thought it was the best since Empire. I am interested in debating someone who doesn't think so. Pro will have to bring up flaws and argue these flaws damage the movie beyond repair, while I will argue either the flaws Pro brings up aren't actually flaws, or that it is nitpicking and doesn't matter. PRO MUST BE A FAN OF THE ORIGINAL TRILOGY Rules: 1) Con will...

is abortion moral

Roganjoesloan
ConserativeDemocrat

My position on this particular subject is no matter what happened no matter what you are going through even if the baby is going to wreak your short term life you can't bring a baby back from the dead when it's convenient the baby does not deserve to die because its mother got raped or went to that wild party and in the small chance of teen pregnancy I don't think that teens should be pregnant but once they get pregnant they should have to give birth of course with assistance I can not think of...
