About Me:I'd like to be involved in politics, but I don't really know where to start. I think I could add compromises to the discussions between the left and the right in the American congress.
Beliefs:I guess you could call me a Georgist, but most people just call me a capitalist or a socialist depending on which side they're on.

National Join Capitalism Fund

Darris

The idea of a national fund to help people to start their lives is not some newfangled hippie, liberal, pinko idea. I actually got the idea from Thomas Paine (my favorite founding father and mascot of the Tea Party nowadays, apparently: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1YE_N91ZQc). It is often said that "the sword of Washington would have been wielded in vain if not for the pen of Paine". Thomas Paine's writings inspired the American colonials to rise up against their British masters.In his pamph...

Creationism (the basic idea of it) Should be Taught in Schools Alongside Evolution

Creationism, or at least the basic principles of it, should be taught in schools alongside the Theory of Evolution and other common theories about the origins of life such as punctual equilibrium, panspermia, and directed panspermia. None of them has been proven to be true yet, but all of them are possible, so why only teach students ONE of the theories when you don't know which one is true? *Keep in mind that creationism is not religious and many creationists can also believe in the theo...

Firstly, this argument is not whether or not carbon should be limited. For the purposes of this debate, that is a given. An idea that just popped in my head to quickly and economically lower CO2 emissions/footprints: On the individual level: Proposal: first we start lowering the huge subsidies to oil companies.

Professional Juries Should Be Used in the U.S. Justice System

Darris

In this debate, I will be arguing that professional juries SHOULD be used in the United States justice system. So, my opponent will be arguing that we should not use professional juries and use the current jury system we have now. If you don't want to make an argument in the first round, I'll start in the second round. Hoping to have a nice debate!...
