keystone pipeline (I'm against it)

Liberalmoderate14
Volkov

I disagree with the keystone pipeline because it's unsafe. In the leak on May 7, 2011 near Millner, N.D., 21,000 gallons of oil was spilled in total. I would like to see what someone else who disagrees with me has to say about this....

Recording interaction with police officers should not be against the law.

Danielle
Volkov

Many thanks to my opponent in advance for accepting this debate. The idea for this challenge stems from a forum topic discussing the same issue: whether or not one is within their legal rights - or should be within their legal rights - to record interaction between civilians and police officers. As it stands, over a dozen states prohibit at least audio recording - if not both audio and video. In fact, many people have been arrested, charged and prosecuted with crimes for recording the police...

Should countries in Africa become a political and economic union?

DylanDraper1993
Volkov

Hello. I welcome anyone to accept this debate, and to he/she who does I thank you. In my argument i will show that the African Union, similar to the EU, is a bad thing, and does more harm than good. As Pro you will need to convince me that the AU will do more good than harm. We must both refute each others main points or simply yield them to their opponent. You may use as many rounds as provided to refute your opponents points or strengthen your own. We both carry "Burden of proof" Happy Hunt...

Hello DDO, and welcome to my *third* instigated debate. I hope to make this a learning experience for not only myself and my opponent, but for the voters as well. _____________________________ The first round for both contenders will be for definitions, and revisions if there are to be any. This debate is a tricky one to define, but I'll try my best. But first, a little background The topic at hand stems from a remark made by InsertNameHere (http://www.debate.org/InsertNameHere/) on Na...

If Texas, as a majority, were to threaten to secede from the Union if its demands were not met, basic freedom would, on balance, be violated more than granted. Texas - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas As a majority - this assumes that a majority of Texans support the threatening Threaten to secede - establish itself as a separate country upon certain conditions being met The Union - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States If its demands are not met - if the United States Fede...

The BNP (as constituted) should NOT be allowed to exist as a political party.

Hello and welcome to readers and to my esteemed opponent Volkov. It is a pleasure to be debating someone with such an excellent grasp of international politics and I hope that his depth of knowledge does not show me up too much in this debate! We agreed to this debate in the comments section of a debate instigated by my opponent (sadly sabotaged by a troll). http://www.debate.org/debates/The-BBC-Was-Wrong-To-Allow-Nick-Griffin-On-Question-Time/1/ This is a subject close to my heart as a Br...

An non interventionist strategy is the best way to curb population growth

Rascal
Volkov

We have a population crisis on our hands whether people want to accept it or not, let alone openly talk about it. The human populace will reach an unsustainable level at some point in the future if it continues to grow at the same exponential rate of 1.2% (1). My side of the argument is that we should not adopt strategies to tackle the problem but rather leave it to nature. This would take place through a series of natural checks like the ones set out by Thomas Malthus in his Principle of Pop...

Some Business Interests Hurt NATO's Purpose in Afghanistan

Volkov
GermanSoviet

Hello everyone, and especially to my opponent, who I thank for taking this debate in advance. The resolution revolves around the fact that some business interests in the country of Afghanistan are hurting NATO's purpose in the country. I will provide some definitions first, and launch into my argument after. Business: a person, partnership, or corporation engaged in commerce, manufacturing, or a service; profit-seeking enterprise or concern. [1] Interest: to concern (a person, nation...
