You Decide Issues (Elections)

This website features a devil's advocate to issues.
Pick one of the issues available, state your preference and learn about the arguments from the other side.

Soon we will watch the presidential and vice presidential debates where each side will argue about these same things in an attempt to convince the undecided voters that they have better policy positions. In the past presidential candidates have relied on many different types of arguments including appeals to people's emotions ("I'm one of you, " I grew up... or my parents struggled..." "I recently talked to this person who is in trouble" ) and informative arguments like the ones that this website makes.

Which is more convincing?

Do you think the voters agree?
