The War on Drugs is unconstitutional, immoral, and a complete failure

First off, the war on drugs is unconstitutional. While the bill of rights does not specifically address this, the spirit of the document is that of keeping the government out of our personal lives. If someone wants to ingest chemical substances in the privacy of their own home, it may not be the healthiest thing to do, granted, but it is not the function of our government to interfere in activities that are completely personal to us and do not hurt anyone else by us doing them. By ignoring this...

United States should use an Elector appointment System to solve the problem of low voter turn out.

Often times for a Mayor position or a city council positions most people have no ideas that an election is even taking place much less vote. So a relatively few amount of people decide the leaders of a comparatively large population. This isn't the fault of the people they have their own lives to live, and unless there is a specific pressing issue that has gotten to the point where they are mad, they aren't really motivated to vote. Now I think that is bad, because it makes us rely on Cliff-Edge...

Term Limits should be abolished

Leonitus_Trujillo
Rousseau

Term limits are unnecessary. Especially in the United States government. There are enough checks and balances on Executive power to provide for a check on tyrany. We are not going to have another king which was the fear of the framers of the constitution, even though term-limits came much after the constitution. If it's not broke why fix it? If we have a good leader in office, who gained his position through popular elections, and who the people favor why force him to leave office? Now in...

Mike Hucakbee is the best Republican running for president.

There is no better Republican Candidate out there right now. Mike Huckabee is a true conservatist yet he knows when to compromise when the job needs to get done and he knows when to stand his ground, and his history as the Governor of Arkansas shows that. Thats not a negative thing but thats a positive thing. We don't know how the congressional elections will turn out, but if we get a stubborn president in office and a stubborn congress this country will go nowhere. Mike Huckabee is not o...

The Bible is a work of man, not God.

Chob
Leonitus_Trujillo

To begin, the Old Testament was written thousands of years before the birth of Jesus Christ, so those who wrote it really had no idea of God's true word. Furthermore, the Old Testament depicts God as vengeful and full of hatred, which logic and reasoning tells you he is not. So many people today attempt to use the Bible to justify discrimination against gays and lesbians, when they are only just small and scared people, hiding behind what they claim to be a work of God in order to justify themse...

The world's history is mostly pre-determined to happen the way it has happened.

I am not saying that God outlined history to happen the way it happened. What I am saying logically and scientifically it can be proven that world history on Earth would be similar to world history on another planet with the same conditions as earth. Earth is the perfect distance away from the sun that our atmosphere wont be sucked into the sun's orbit, which is the case with mars. We are the perfect near the sun that there is suitable warmth for life. Therefore life exist on Earth. Becaus...

School Vouchers Provide choice and in turn create a better educational system!

Leonitus_Trujillo

School Vouchers are one of the best options that our educational system has. This is a very simple argument: When there is competition quality goes up and price goes down. The education of our youth is too important to just maintain the status quo and not try new innovations so we may compete on a global stage. It is obvious to me and many others that our current Educational system is failing. And what better way to fix that problem then through freedom. Freedom for parents and students to choos...

Criminalizing Abortions Is Not Christian Behavior, take 2

topher
Leonitus_Trujillo

Alright, Leonitus! You wanted it - hear it is. Since this is an earlier topic that my opponent failed to respond to, I'll just copy my original opening argument: ~ I do not believe that Christians ought to persuade the government to criminalize abortions. First let me say that I am not for abortions. If someone who had an unwanted pregnancy came to me to and asked, "Should I get an abortion?" I can't really think of a situation where I'd say, "Yes, you should." Abortions are bad news...
