I'm not even sure this will fly but I was intrigued by the idea so I'm putting this out there to see if there's any interest. What if we were to select topics and two volunteers to debate different sides of the issue within a given time span? If anyone other than the two selected have anything to add they can PM the person representing their viewpoint with the info. Meanwhile the debate can be held in a poll thread and at the end of which (no early voting please) everyone can vote for which position they found most persuasive. Please post topics you feel would make for a clear debate. Also, if you're willing to represent a given position on any topic mentioned please say so. Gay marriage vs. civil unions vs. no unions at all? Abortion? Gun control? Health care reform? Iraq/Afghanistan/Iran? Welfare? Foreign policy? Immigration laws? Does Islam = Terrorism? Fred Phelps being allowed to live? We have too many intelligent people with decisive views for this not to happen. What say you?
