Should K-12 teachers get tenure? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should K-12 teachers get tenure? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Angelo's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Tenure for teachers should never be automatic rather tenure should be based on qualifications and a job well done. Teachers’ unions do their very best to secure these positions for unqualified teachers and the results are lack of accountability, rising pay as a simple function of years on the job, and near-absolute job security. These have a deadening impact on student achievement and must be eliminated.

Should gay marriage be legal? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should gay marriage be legal? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Angelo's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Marriage is a State issue and I don’t feel that it be regulated or discussed by the federal government. With that being said on this topic I support Obama.  If two people love each other why can’t they marry even if they’re the same sex?  I really don’t understand why the republicans have such a problem with this issue and what gay marriages cause.

Should the United States build additional nuclear plants? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should the United States build additional nuclear plants? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Angelo's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Both candidates agree with building additional nuclear power plants and I also agree with building additional nuclear plants.  Our country is too reliant on foreign energy source, specifically oil from the Middle East and this country needs to develop alternative fuel source using nuclear power.  By eliminating the need of oil from the Middle East and further developing nuclear power we serve two purposes (1) we can use clean and more efficient fuel and (2) make the Middle East irreverent.  Think about it! If the demand of middle east oil goes down then the middle eastern countries will lose power and leverage over the rest of the world.

Are more federal regulations on guns and ammunition needed? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Are more federal regulations on guns and ammunition needed? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Angelo's Political Debate | Scoop.it

I agree with Romney on gun controls.  Rather the adding new federal regulation we should enforce our current laws.  By enforcing our current laws and making sure that anyone who exercises the right to keep and bear arms must do so lawfully and properly.  Someone once said that if you outlawed guns only outlaws would own guns! Let’s not add more laws on the books but rather enforce the laws we have.

Should there be a federal mandate for individuals to have health insurance? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should there be a federal mandate for individuals to have health insurance? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Angelo's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Under Obama care people who can afford health care can refuse to purchase it because they know that if they become seriously they will get free treatment at the hospital.  Free is the magic word here.  Is it really free? I don’t think so because what ends up happening is that everyone one ends up paying for these people by the government imposed taxes.

 

Romney’s solution is far better; everyone must either purchase a health insurance product of their choice that is subsidized or demonstrate that they can pay for their own health care. Health insurance will now be affordable and subsidized everyone will be able to purchase health insurance from a private company.

Do most labor unions provide an overall benefit to their workers in the US? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Do most labor unions provide an overall benefit to their workers in the US? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Angelo's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Mitt Romney is right; a worker should be rewarded because of their quality of work rather than their longevity in the job. At one point during the industrial revolution unions made sense because worker were being taken advantage of by management but that time has passed. Too often unions will blindly protect workers who clearly are not doing their job simply because of time spent in the union. How many good young teachers are lost every year to older teachers that have long stopped being effective when it comes to teaching.

Should the federal deficit be reduced without raising any taxes? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should the federal deficit be reduced without raising any taxes? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Angelo's Political Debate | Scoop.it

As Romney states “the problem with raising taxes is that it slows down the rate of growth”. The best way to cut the deficit is encourage economic growth and put people back to work. Raising taxes will have the opposite effect. By actually reducing taxes (or not raising them) on businesses, they (businesses) will have more money to spend on improvements and the hiring of additional workers. When more people go back to work more money is put into the economy by these workers and actually more taxes paid, which can be used by the government to reduce the deficit.

We live in the best and most powerful country in world.  We have freedoms in this country that people in other countries would die for.  It is important that we protect and safe guard those freedoms and I am glad that both candidates feel the national defense and our security is something that we to always need to protect.

Is the Occupy Wall Street movement good for America? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Is the Occupy Wall Street movement good for America? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Angelo's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Obama thinks that Occupy Wall Street is good for America. I disagree with Obama and agree with Romney on this topic! While the movement started with good intention it has long lost its steam.  I remember going to work with my dad last year and we were walk on wall street, the protestors looked confused and didn’t really seem to have a purpose other than to blame wall street for everything that wrong with world. I think rather then bitch and complain that everythng sucks and expect a handout from the government we should do something about and make a differernce.

Should E-Verify, the federal government's electronic employment verification system, be mandatory for all employers? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should E-Verify, the federal government's electronic employment verification system, be mandatory for all employers? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Angelo's Political Debate | Scoop.it

I agree with both candidates on e-verify -- Everyday millions of Americans and legal immigrates lose jobs to illegal aliens because they are willing to work cheaper and in an unsafe working environment.  E-verify should be mandatory and enforced because this will allow Americans and legal immigrates access to more jobs and also keep employers who are looking to cut corners on the straight narrow.

Should the US federal government have bailed out US private financial corporations like AIG, Bank of America, Citigroup, etc.? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should the US federal government have bailed out US private financial corporations like AIG, Bank of America, Citigroup, etc.? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Angelo's Political Debate | Scoop.it

We live in a global world and with that comes a global economy that is involved in many aspects of our everyday life.  Like it or not, financial corporations are involved in all aspects of our lives from mortgages to insurance to auto and student loans to lines of credit to the local factor can make payroll.  Imagine what would have happened if the US government would have allowed these large financial corporations to fail.  Our economy would have been destroyed worse than the great depression of 1929 and it would have taken dozens and dozens of years to recover from it.  We are now at a point in our lives like it or not that some companies are just too big to fail!

Do lower taxes incentivize employers to hire more workers? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Do lower taxes incentivize employers to hire more workers? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Angelo's Political Debate | Scoop.it

I agree with both parties on this topic. This country was built on small businesses and lower taxes for these businesses will incentivize employers to hire more workers which will help stimulate the economy. To be honest I'm a little confused with Obama on this topic, while he says and agrees that lower taxes will stimulate the employers to hire more workers which will help the economy he talks about raising taxes for anyone earnng over $200,000 per year which is the catogory where many small business owners fall into.
