12/25/2015 13:51:06Dean Steinmandhsteinman@gmail.comThe Electoral College does not present a democratic way to elect the President of the United States.Our two-party system prevents the progress of the government and limits its ability to be efficient and timelyThe electoral college is a fine topic.

1/2/2016 11:34:19Hyunsung Yangkmg294600@gmail.comThe growing number of Asian American Immigrant population is significantly impacting the United States today.Congressional reform should begin with replacing the Congressional Staffers.The Asian American topic is good, but *how* is it impacting the USA?

1/2/2016 16:59:47Xiuzhen (Tiffany) Leilei.tiffany@gmail.comThe U.S. federal government should get involved in legalizing physician assisted suicide.The U.S. federal government should take a less active role in dealing with K through 12 education in the U.S.Physician assisted suicide sounds like a good topic.

1/2/2016 17:31:37Laura (Kai Sze) Luklauraksluk@gmail.comThe 2nd Amendment should be adjusted because guns are dangerous and cause thousands of deaths annually in the United States.The growing number of immigrants to the United States is impacting the country in a positive way.The 2nd Amendment topic is fine.

1/3/2016 14:14:05Mahdi Azadmahdiazad1998@gmail.comThe redrawing of Congressional districts should be controlled by an independent, non-partisan group.The federal government should require all children to be vaccinated for preventable diseases.Redrawing districts is a good topic.

1/3/2016 15:35:26Michael Chungmichael_C750@yahoo.comThe federal government should attempt to pacify the general public's contempt of terrorists instead of subverting the terrorist organisation.Supreme court justices should be nominated by their fellow justices.Sounds good, but you need to give strong details about what this pacification would actually entail.

1/3/2016 16:47:27Audrey Leeaudreylee25128@gmail.comAlthough it is common and protected by free speech for political candidates to use negative campaign advertisements, the tactic should be regulated due to its adverse effects on democracy and the election process.Considering that women make up roughly half of the US population, the under-representation of women in the Judicial branch should be addressed because it results in unjust rulings in cases regarding gender equality and women's rights.Regulation of campaign advertisement is fine, but you'll need to grapple with Citizens United and other 1st amendment issues.

1/3/2016 17:38:08Elias Sariceliasharun@hotmail.comNew York State's initiative to revitalize upstate New York by building casinos may create jobs in the short term, but will ultimately hurt communities in the long term.Breed Specific Legislation intended to curb dog-related violence is not only fails to accomplish its mission, but also violates the civil rights of dog owners.This NY gambling initiative is a bit local, but I'll allow it.

1/3/2016 18:13:13Yaxin Chencyaxin883@ymail.comCongress should create stricter laws regarding the actions of people and organizations related to election campaigns to prevent political corruption and to make America's government more democratic.It's more beneficial for states' department of transportation to spend money on maintaining infrastructures rather than to spend money on building new ones.A paper about corruption and campaigns would be fine, but you need to list a couple of concrete things that the government should do.
11
1/3/2016 18:52:10James Chenjameschen625@gmail.comThe Supreme Court should be able to incorporate public opinion into the decisions of court cases.Jus soli is essential to the American dream and must not be abolished.Your Supreme Court topic is interesting, but it could be argued that they already incorporate public opinion into their decision-making--albeit informally. Jus Soli wouold probably be an easier paper to write. Either would be fine.
12
1/3/2016 18:55:16Shi Shushishu_1998@yahoo.comThere should be restrictions on jus soli to prevent anchor babies and illegal immigrationBeing a natural born citizen should be not a requirement for becoming presidentThe jus soli topic would be fine.
13
1/3/2016 19:22:50Samantha Hanhansamantha21@gmail.comStandardized testing is detrimental to our education system.Euthanasia should be legalized so it can be an option to terminally ill, suffering patients.The standardized testing topic is good... but you'd need to address the question of how universities would deal with the fact that grades of different worth between schools and teachers.
14
1/3/2016 19:55:12Jason Linjasonlin112298@gmail.comThe government should not be able to collect sensitive personal data from companies.College/University should not be tuition-free.The data topic is very topical and interesting.
15
1/3/2016 20:24:04Ping Ping Zengpingx2.mm@gmail.comThe Constitutional amendment process is too demanding, making it nearly impossible to amend the Constitution.The current voting system at the local level is ineffective as it does not represent the people's opinions due to low voter turnout.The amedment topic is good--I'm assuming that you'd propose an alternate method for amendment?
16
1/3/2016 20:51:15Jessica Wujwu23@stuy.eduAnimals should not be used for scientific testing.Standardized testing should not be used to evaluate students.The animal topic is fine.
17
1/3/2016 22:07:08Sheldon Leesheldonsylee@yahoo.comThe right to free speech should be accounted for within social mediums.The changes in the minimum wage act to increase minimum wage will do more harm than good.The free speech topic is a good one. But note that social media like Facebook, etc are privately owned and thus have substantial control over the thoughts and speech expressed on their site and servers.
18
1/3/2016 22:23:04Corinne Feltoncornfelton@gmail.comThe United States should decrease the amount of security used in airports.Gun regulations should be more stringent at a federal level.The security topic is good.
19
1/3/2016 22:26:47Joshua Joujoshua.jou4216@gmail.comState governments should continue to exercise sovereignty over the legalization and regulation of medical marijuana. In determining educational standards, state governments should maintain sovereignty over curricular content while budgetary appropriation should be left to the federal government.By this, I assume you mean that the states should handle these matters and not the federal government? Sounds fine.
20
1/3/2016 23:51:14Walter Lili.walter1@gmail.comIllegal immigrants should not be deported.The government should create more plans to reduce carbon emissions.The topic on immigration sounds fine, but you'll have to elaborate if you want to get a full paper out of it.
21
1/4/2016 0:52:52Hing LiHingli12345@gmail.comHow has the use of social media changed the world of politics?Why has the American government been so careful about gun control?
How HAS social media changed the world of politics? I'm looking for a thesis statement, not a thesis question.
22
1/4/2016 1:36:36Ivan Szetonavivans11@gmail.comThe American government is too involved in foreign affairs.Supreme Court Justices should not be allowed to serve life terms.I'm saying no to the foreign affairs topic--I want a more domestic focus. The life terms for the SC would be a fine topic, however.
23
1/4/2016 12:06:32Hing LiHingli12345@gmail.comSocial media, media in general, is allowing the younger generation become more involved with government issues, curing political apathy in the process.The government should increase spending to provide a more affordable education at the cost of miltiary spending. Now the social media topic is fine.
24
1/4/2016 18:23:47Lance Lepelstatforrestlep@gmail.comThe United States should only incarcerate violent criminals.All private universities within the United States should be shut down.The incarceration argument is good.
25
1/4/2016 21:52:16Nathan Chandlernathanr8991@gmail.comThe government should not be able to monitor phone calls and emails.The federal government should subsidize universal childcare.The government monitoring program is fine.
26
1/4/2016 22:47:28Chris Vellecacvcyclone@gmail.comBoth federal and state governments need to do more to aid the substance abuse epidemic.The electoral college is necessary to protect the ability of the small states to have a say in the election.The substance argument is fine, but you need to provide a bit more detail.
27
1/4/2016 22:59:45AnneGail Morelandannegail.moreland@gmail.comThe currently polarized two party system is detrimental to the American political system.The electoral college is detrimental to the values of democracy. Attacking parties is fine, but you need to give more detail about what could potentially follow.
28
1/4/2016 23:03:09Aaron Orelowitzaaronorelowitz1998@gmail.comThere should be a small inconvenient fine for citizens who choose not to vote in order to counteract the inconvenience of voting which coaxes people to under represent themselves. The distorted representation of citizens, created by each state having two senators, provides a unique gridlock which protects political minorities and prevents our government from making rash decisions.Fines are a good topic, but you should be thinking of Jim Crow as a potential opposing POV.

1/4/2016 23:30:17Amira Abdelhakimamiraabdelhakim01@gmail.comThe negative image of planned parenthood created by extreme conservatives in our government ultimately belies the overall positive impact possible through appropriate funding of the critical health program for low income families.Military overspending by the US government has led to a decline of progress in key domestic concerns such as the education system and poverty.Your points about Planned Parenthood are good, but be careful of overly defending the status quo.
30
1/4/2016 23:39:30Andy Quandyqu0914@gmail.comWhy should illegal immigrants be given legal status?Why should the United States focus on its infrastructure?These should be statements, not questions. E-mail me for additional information.
31
1/5/2016 3:46:57Tousif Hossainhossaintousif98@gmail.comGovernment spending should be prioritized towards the military and safety of the country over domestic care and programs.To detain those apprehended as a national threat to the country at a remote location (Guantanamo) is just. Sounds good, but to effectively argue this, you'll have to show that the military is currently underfunded.
32
1/5/2016 12:05:28Raymond Jiang rayray981112@hotmail.comUnnaturalized citizens should be able to run for president under certain circumstances. There should be restriction on jus soilI assume you mean "naturalized citizens"? If so, your topic is fine.
33
1/5/2016 19:39:28Hyun Su Kimslinure@gmail.comIron triangle can be removed through effective government reforms.SuperPAC is negtively impacting the democracy.Fine, so long as you give details about these reforms.
