Ok, not really, I'm usually(always) right. But I think this will be a fun little exercise in debating. Here is how it will work. I'm going to present a topic and anyone who posts about the topic must post an opinion that is contrary to their own beliefs. That means if you are pro-Iraq War you must argue against it, and vice versa. If you believe in global warming you must argue against it, and vice versa.

So, let's start with something fairly easy to understand from different points of view, health care. I personally do not support nationalized healthcare but that is irrelavent.

----------------------------------------

Healthcare is a very important part of society and can't be left to corrupted buisnesses. A nationalized healthcare system, if properly run, will not only provide for the health of the less fortunate but also can provide jobs and can even benefit the economy. A well run nationalized healthcare system would decrease the number of sick and increase the size of the work force which means more people working which means more money being spent or generated. A well run healthcare sytem won't cost much in taxes so long as it is streamlined and the patient is the focus instead of a bureaucracy.

So. Your turn.

In my deeply private and personal opinion, this appears to be a game, or even interactive spam, hardly constituting pub material.

Well, it's sort of more of an exercise in debating, much like debate events held in high schools and colleges. So I suppose it works in the Pub.

I think this should definitely be pub, it's about the topics and just looking at them differently

I think it's a good exercise, as long as people put enough effort into it. So let's get on topic please.

edit: What part of "on topic" don't you guys understand? Well, as this thread is only spammed I will close it, at least until someone wants to make a valid contribution.

edit2: reopened as per request.

Wow...you're a modest one arent you? Hmmm...what kinda people always think they're right? Hm...let's see Hitler, Stalin, the KKK, neo christian conservatives....well that's pretty much the scum of the earth...haha

Personally I think this isnt a good idea at all...who wants to argue for something against what they truely believe? Ok, good job - you can debate for something you dont truely believe in...want a cooke?

:spam:

Since when is this a "debate exercise"? Theres no such thing as a forum debate, only arguements but no real debate.

You see this?

This is where you exercise the art of debate, not talking big on a forum.

Alright, I'll give it a go.

Having a privatised health service could only improve it. All busnesses compete with each other, and improvement gets them more customers. So better health facilities = more profit, and more profit = better health facilities. Private companies only have themselves to worry about, whereas government facilities are allocated resources, depending on their importance. This means changes can be implemented faster and more effectively, should they become necessary.

Privatizing Health Care is that way to go. If the health care providers didn't have to compete for clients, the quality of thier services would decrease. Health care would take on the feel of more an assembly line, where patients would be encouraged to leave as soon as possible. New cases would just have medicines thrown at them with little interest in the results. Think of how degraded other standardized goverment agencies have gotten: the post office, the DMV, public schools, and national libaries.

I feel so dirty now, lol....

Socialized health care just doesn't work. It would cost way too much for our government on its own, so it would come out of our tax dollars. The last thing we want is more taxes to pay.

(I am pro-socialized health care, obviously)
