For my issue paper I have many many ideas about what I could write about. My friend in another class is having to prepare an annotated bibliography and we thought that it would be easier for the both of us if we chose the same topic and did research together in Joyner Library. My friend wants to write about the debate on gay marriage, in which the two sides are either for Gay Marriage or against it. The most common disagreement with gay marriage is based on religious factors, and the most common agreement is bas on the idea that "love is love," the pursuit of happiness, and that people should have the freedom to marry any person of their mutual choosing regardless of sex. Another controversial topic that I am interested in is the idea of "The American Dream." though this topic is a little less bas on blatant statistics and fact, it nonetheless would be an interesting topic. The argument here would of course be whether the American Dream exists or doesn't and if it EVER existed outside of the imaginations of American society. Being as this topic is highly subjective, I doubt that this will end up being my final choice for my issue paper topic. Yet another idea that I had was the controversial and heart wrenching topic of assisted suicide or euthanasia. Similar to my topic idea of gay marriage, the sides of the argument would be closely related to religious faith and ideals. Naturally, the sides would be either' "
Euthanasia is immoral, and no human should have control over whether a person lives or dies," (much like the death penalty, which would be another interesting topic for an issue paper) OR "Euthanasia is an altruistic act of putting someone out of the pain they are feeling before they are to inevitably pass away anyway." As you can observe, my mind is going crazy with ideas about this issue paper and I am greatly looking forward to writing this paper regardless of which topic I choose, because they are all fascinating. Hopefully I will be able to settle my mind and choose a topic before next Monday.
