Has the war in Iraq made America safer? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Has the war in Iraq made America safer? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Cara's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Yes,I belive that the war in Iraq has made America safer because our sercurity doesn't have any trouble. Mitt Romney stated,"We have made enemies out of tens of millions of individuals that maybe we wouldn't have made otherwise." In otherwords he thinks that America is safer and that we should stay the way we are since there hasn't been much trouble.

Should Congress have increased the debt limit on Aug. 2, 2011 to prevent default? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should Congress have increased the debt limit on Aug. 2, 2011 to prevent default? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Cara's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Yes, congress should have increased the debt limit on August 2 ,2011. If the debt limit was increased it would have the the country pay all of the bills that weren't paid yet. It would have been a big advantage Obama states that "We would risk sparking a deep economic crisis - one caused almost entirely by Washington." I agree with him beacause it could have saved our economy.

Is outsourcing jobs to other countries good for America? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Is outsourcing jobs to other countries good for America? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Cara's Political Debate | Scoop.it

All of the canidates think that outsourcing jobs to other countries isn't good for America. If you actually think about it,out sourcing jobs isn't a negative thing. Outsourcing jobs can be a postive thing for America because there would be many more oppuritinies. Instead all of the canidates are focusing on all the negative affects. Mitt Romney said "It's tempting to want to protect our markets and stay closed. But at some point it all comes crashing down and you're hopelessly left behind." If we don't try to outsource jobs then we will never know if it could be a postive effect.

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 | Cara's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Using a nuclear power plant isn't a good idea because there are many negative outcomes. Nuclear power plants can cause people to die and also the plants can have negative affects on the human body. The plants may be cheap but it's not worth risking many citizens health. Jill Stein  said "We can and must leave the old economy behind – which was based on mining, extraction, and dirty dangerous expensive nuclear power." Jill Stein is 100% right beacause nuclear power doesn't always have a postive outcome.

Should all Americans have a right (be entitled) to basic health care? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should all Americans have a right (be entitled) to basic health care? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Cara's Political Debate | Scoop.it

I think all Americans should have the right to have basic health care. Obama explained how his mother was dying of cancer and the bills were very expensive. I agree with Obama because it's very diffucult to pay bills when you don't have the money for it. Like Obama said about his mother having cancer " arguing with insurance companies because they're saying that this may be a pre-existing condition and they don't have to pay her treatment, there's something fundamentally wrong about that."

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

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

Obama belives that "If a teacher is given a chance or two chances or three chances but still does not improve, there's no excuse for that person to continue teaching. I reject a system that rewards failure and protects a person from its consequences." Obama makes a very good point for teachers getting tenure. If a teacher isn't working to their abillity they shouldn't still have their job. It shouldn't matter how long they worked at a school if they don't deserve to be teaching they should be fired. Education is very important, so teachers should have to do their best at all times to keep their jobs.

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 | Cara's Political Debate | Scoop.it

I don't think workers in the US benefit form lavor unions, they get a disadvantage. Jobs become harder to get and job rates go down. Also it reduces the investment which doesn't help out at all. Mitt Ronmey said "Too often, unions drive up costs and introduce rigidities that harm competitiveness and frustrate innovation" this statement proves that it wouldn't only harm jobs but it increases the prics and more competetion starts up.

Is China an economic or military threat to the US? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Cara's Political Debate | Scoop.it

China is a our main source of trading and manufacturing merchindise for the United States.China helps the United States in many situations. But China is an economic threat to the United States because if they wanted to they could stop giving the United States money and China could stop manufacturing. Mitt Romney also says how China could be also not only a economic and military threat but China is also could be a military threat to the United States.

Should the US continue to build a physical barrier, such as a fence, along the US-Mexico border? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should the US continue to build a physical barrier, such as a fence, along the US-Mexico border? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Cara's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Virgil Goode makes a good point that the borders should stay because it could put the US in danger. If the US wants to stay safe and not have any problems they should continue to have a pyhsical border. Virgil Goode explains "We need to utilize troops, fences, and other measures to stop the invasion from Mexico." Also I think the border should be have more security so no one gets away with crossing the border.

Should the wealthiest 1% of Americans be taxed more heavily? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should the wealthiest 1% of Americans be taxed more heavily? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Cara's Political Debate | Scoop.it

It doesn't make sense to tax the less wealthy because they don't have as much money as the wealthy do. If the less wealthy are being taxed it isn't fair because the more weathly should be taxed. It makes more sense to tax the wealthy becuase they have the money for it, unlike the under class. Obama states "That is the height of unfairness. It is wrong. It's wrong that in the United States of America, a teacher or a nurse or a construction worker, maybe earns $50,000 a year, should pay a higher tax rate than somebody raking in $50m." I agree with Obama because if you are earning more money you should pay more for your taxes.

Should most adults have the right to carry a concealed handgun? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org

Should most adults have the right to carry a concealed handgun? - 2012 Presidential Election - ProCon.org | Cara's Political Debate | Scoop.it

Gary Johnson argues you should be able to have a handgun in your home. I agree because you never know when a emergency could happen.Gary Johnson said "It was a new concept at the time, but I believed it would result in less crime - a fact borne out by the statistics." If it's a fact there would be less crime, then being able to have a gun would help out the violence level. Also,people would feel safer with a handgun in their house because they would feel like they could control a bad situation.

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

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

I agree with Obama because gay marriage should be legal. It doesn't make any sense why people have a problem with gay marriage because it isn't effecting them in any way. Obama states "I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.” What Obama said is true because everyone deserves equal rights. I think it's ridiculous that people even have a say in what someone wants to do with their life.
