Flag Burning should not be a crime.

blond_guy

Flag Burning should not be illegal for the following reasons: 1)If you own a United States flag and some matches and a piece of land safe enough to burn a flag in, then it is constitutional for you to have the right to do whatever you want with your own flag! Making it a crime also diminishes our freedom of speech. 2)It is discriminatory that it is illegal to burn a United States flag and not another country's flag. With so many immigrants and a constitution promoting equality, the law wou...

bible is fallible

dairygirl4u2c

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 himself...

The United States Is a Faltering Nation. It Is On The Decline

Rousseau

Well, I'd be more than happy to get further in depth after my opponent brings up his points, but here are mine: The United States is on the decline. This is because of several reasons. 1. Lack of serious global competition, power-wise. 2. Severe Lack of Soft Power, and Hard Power that may be faltering 3. Enemies that are transboundary and practically invisible 4. Dependence on Foreign Oil and Oil in general 5. Economic stagnation 6. Policing policy failing 7. Lack of a strong candidate...

Benazir Bhutto Was Most Likely Killed by Pervez Musharraf

Rousseau

I believe that to get to the meat of the debate, I'll have to wait for a challenger, but basically Musharraf has the most to gain from the death of Bhutto, and had the most to lose from her becoming elected as the President. Not only that, but Musharraf had the means to do it. He was closely connected with the head of the military (who he hand-picked as his successor). This means he is the most likely to have orchestrated her death. I also ask, if not Musharraf.. than who? Militant rebels? They...

PCs and Macs are basically the same.

KarmaPaymentPlan

Hello. This is my first debate on debate.org, so, I don't intend to go "balls out" on this one. This is simply a quirk of mine. For as long as I can remember, the Mac vs. PC debate has been metaphorically "ablaze." I see no end to it. There just seems to be no compromise between PC and Mac elitists. I want this to end, because, quite frankly, it's getting old. To set the premise, I am both a PC and Mac user. When it comes down to it, OSX and Windows are the same. They both provide all of th...

single issue voting for abortion, for president, for prolifers

dairygirl4u2c

Abortion should not be the sole issue, even by prolifer arguments. i am prolife, but i think voting for abortion only is not wise. fifty percent of the pulic favors the early allowance for abortion early in the pregnancy. those in favor of it are only going to vote for a democrat, are often democrats, in democrat states. they will veto any justice who wants to overturn roe v wade. even if republicans are repeatedly voted in then, they're probably not going to be able to vote for anyone pr...

Affirmative Action is Bad

policydebategod
Rousseau

- Affirmative action leads to reverse discrimination. - Affirmative action lowers standards of accountability needed to push students or employees to perform better. - Students admitted on this basis are often ill-equipped to handle the schools to which they've been admitted. - It would help lead a truly color-blind society. - It is condescending to minorities to say they need affirmative action to succeed. - It demeans true minority achievement; i.e. success is labeled as result of af...

The U.S. should leverage its hard power against Iran, in order to stop Iran nuclear capabilities.

Rousseau

First off, let me clarify what I mean. It is my belief that we should leverage our hard power against Iran, in order to prevent them from furthering their nuclear capabilities. To explain a little, I think that attacking Iran would be foolish, and result in little more than angering their people and creating even more of a vaccuum towards the ever growing anti-Americanism views growing oh so prevalent in the Middle East. What I really mean by leveraging our hard power against Iran, is that we sh...
