Homosexuality is good for society (if determined by genetics)

MoonDragon613

Before opening arguments, I would like to remind the contender that this argument is based on the assumption that sexuality is an inherent characteristic. It's hardly a far fetched assumption. After all, who wakes up one day and goes, "I'm tired of having intercourse with the opposite sex. Today I feel like incurring the wrath and righteous hatred of many members of society by having intercourse with a member of my sex, just for kicks and giggles" So thus, I am assuming here that homosexuality i...

Obama over Clinton as the Democratic party's nomination

attrition

I think Barack Obama would be the better choice for the president of the United states over Hilary Clinton. I would like to debate with a Hilary Clinton supporter. I hope this can be positive. I think neither one of us want to disparage the other's candidate too much, lest the opponents pick win the nomination, and we would have to show support to that individual candidate. We are both on the ABAR( Anyone but a Republican) campaign. Let's say we agree on the following things based on the ca...

Military force is justified to protect economic dependencies.

cody30228

This topic is slightly confusing so let me clarify. An economic dependency is MY word for a location of economic investment. Expanding on this, I give an example. Country A relies on exporting oil to Country B for a large percentage of GDP Hope this clears things up. So my argument(s): 1. Economy is necessity for life A nation must have an economy to survive. When the economy fails, the country fails. A government must do anything in it's power to survive. If that means using military...

The United States Government should abolish welfare and other entitlement programs.

DJBruce

America is founded on the idea that people have the chance to work hard and succeed. Theses entitlement programs are discouraging people from going out and working hard to make a living. Instead the are perfectly happy to leach of the system and take the government checks and aid that is given to them....

Terrorism: War or Not?

phunkyboy123

Why are you against the war on terrorism? Are you against terrorism? We must fight terrorism. We cannot let it take over us. I don't believe in the War in Iraq, but I do think that we must fight to eradicate terrorism. The world can't live in peace if terrorism isn't taken care of once and for all. We must fight if we want peace....

Should the USA and its allies have invaded Afghanistan?

bigbass3000

After the September 11th attacks, the USA was fully justified in waging war to punish those responsible and to prevent future attacks. The Taliban were not a passive host for Bin Laden but were closely associated with him ideologically, and in his debt for the crucial support he has lent them in their own civil war. By sheltering him and his terrorist network, and by refusing to give him up, the Taliban are his accomplices in the September 11th atrocities and should be overthrown in the interest...

Reparations are owed to the African American Community

Corryngf

I'm not going to put it all out there just yet, but I'll state my position and elaborate on why I feel the way I do. I Belive that Reparations are owed to the African American Community, as a whole for their 200 + years of slavery. America was built off of the backs of black people, and thanks to slavery america has become (or was before Bush came to office) one of the Worlds richest super powers. Ok theres my position If you think you can handle it let the debate begin!...

Washington D.C. is broken.

Cooperman88

In order to begin this debate, I would first like to thank my future opponent for debating me. I am currently a parli debater in college, so my style is probably a mix of old c-x'er. So with that being said, I am open to any real type of debate. Just tell me. Now for my actual argumentation. I will define Washington D.C. as being our nation's government. This includes all three branches. Broken is defined as needing repair. My reason for defining it this way is because if something is needing...

The Death Penalty

VenomousNinja

Should a man be killed for his actions? I, for one, think so. If you believe in the bible, as many of us do, you will know it specifically states "You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.'" Mathhew 5:38. This basically means "if you kill someone, you yourself should be killed". Now, going back to the bible, it also says "And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away." Mathhew 5:30. This basically means "If you have harmed another, repent...

Illegal Immigrants are at the base of almost every major problem in America.

ericjpomeroy

I will keep my opening statement brief. Illegal immigrants are a cancer on our nation. They can be linked back to almost any problem in America. Supporters of illegal immigrants throw out the same lame defenses, that our economy depends on them, that the work jobs Americans don't want to work, they are innocent people looking for a better life. I say they are criminals the second they cross our border and should be treated as such. Crime, gangs, drugs, health care, our economy, they affect all t...
