Mike Huckabee is the best Republican candidate.

Hello ladies and gentlemen. I would like to bring fourth a truth. I have done extensive research into this candidate, and have concluded that he is the best Republican candidate. I have seen other similar debates on the site, but I don't think they've done a good job. So I would leave a very vague opening argument that allows for my opponent to have a leg up, and I'll debate from there....

Iowa's importance in the Presidential primaries should be reduced to allow a more national primary.

I live in the most populous state in the union, and my vote is much less important then some small town farm boy in Iowa. Thats not fair. We should have a national primary, to allow my voice to be just as important in picking my nominee as someone in a diner when its 10 degrees outside and snowing....

Capital punishment should be illegal, and abortion rights should be respected.

I have seen a lot of death penalty and abortion arguments on this website, and I would like to cut to the meat of the matter here. Pro-lifers are always discussing innocence as the factor in this matter, and how innocent babies should not be killed but guilty murderors can be killed without worry. Innocence is not actually the issue here though. First of all, you are not the judge of innocence. Jesus said "let he who is without sin cast the first stone". Jesus is trying to say here that you cann...

the bible = not infallible

the outrageousness speaks for itself. ---When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himsel...

Debates main goal is for the people watching, not the people in the debate.

The whole concept of a debate is that two arguments will be pitted against each other. My dictionary says this. a formal contest in which the affirmative and negative sides of a proposition are advocated by opposing speakers. So debates are like an intellectual contest. With two or more competitors. The competitors are not going to yield in the middle of the debate and say "oh I was wrong you were right great." thats the equivalent of a boxer just stopping in the middle of the ring and...

The United States Needed to invade Afghanistan.

Iraq is another issue for another debate. I am going to build momentum here with Afghanistan. I believe that it was absolutely necessary for the United States to spend billions of dollars in the Invasion of Afghanistan , to deeply American troops, and finally that all the lives lost in Afghanistan are lost justly so; and I believe the people who believe otherwise are a minority so I would like to see them bring up good points here. Afghanistan was a terrorist haven harboring many of the p...

If abortion becomes illegal , it should be charged as a capital offense.

Currently in the United States abortion is legal up to a certain point in the pregnancy. Now abortion has been debated to heck should it be legal, should it be illegal. But I don't know how many times we've stepped back and thought what are we going to do if it is illegal about people who get abortions anyway, and that is debate is about. For the sake of this debate we are going to have to assume that abortion becomes illegal, and if that is hard for you , what you can do is take partial birt...

The 66-book bible translated from original language unedited is the only valid religious text.

I would Like anyone who wishes to come and to prove through deductive reasoning, that the pure bible described above is not the only valid religious text. To properly have this argument, the person who chooses to argue against must take for granted that there is a god; otherwise this debate will descend into an evolution vs. creationism debate which has been done done repeatedly. Firstly I reject the "Middle Ground" philosophy taught in many colleges and Universities. This Philosophy ascertai...

Naturalized citizens should be allowed to run for the presidency.

America has always been a land of immigrants, the melting pot it has been called. The fact is that a minority of the population can actually trace back their heritage to a family during the revolutionary war. There are more than 300 million people in American's today and there were only a few million people in 1776 only a few hundred years ago, we ARE a nation of EX-immigrants. All the immigrants historically never came here to be Irish,or German, or Spanish, Chinese. They came here to be Americ...
