Quotes:The largest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy, and prosperity at the end of the 20th and at the beginning of the 21st century is no longer socialism. It is, instead, the ambitious, arrogant, unscrupulous ideology of environmentalism." -Vaclov Klaus (President-Czech Republic)

Before I give my arguments, I'd like to lay out some ground rules. Accepting this debate is accepting my terms of this debate. Because my rules may not be perfect, I will allow the first round to be a chance for my opponent to challenge my rules. No arguments are to be given during this round. Only the ground rules and changes relating to those ground rules. As I feel that none of these rules are unreasonable, I will have the final say as to whether they stand as the debate goes into round two....

Saying PRO/CON should win before the final round is stupid

To keep the title short here is my actual proposed argument. Saying anything along the lines of "Pro/Con wins" or "You should vote for Pro/Con" before the end of the round should be an automatic forfeiture or point loss. Arguments: 1) It's unprofessional to say it early and looks stupid. 2) It distracts from the main topic at hand. 3) It's annoying. It should be just like a trial. Stay with the facts until the closing argument, then convince people to vote for you. Enjoy!...

The classification of a "Assault Weapon" is flawed and is based on looks and "scary features" instead of actual firearm capabilities. The purpose of this debate is to prove/disprove the concept of the "Assault Weapon". Good luck!...

Drill ANWR

The US government should allow oil companies to drill in ANWR. Here's why: 1. There is potentially a lot of oil. 2. Drilling for oil is not mutually exclusive with investing in renewable energy. 3. The environmental risks are wildly exaggerated. A) The area that would be drilled is less than 1% of the 20 million acres that comprise ANWR. B) Drilling is not nearly as environmentally damaging as it once was. C) Compared with a number of current offshore drilling locations (i.e., the...
