I have considered many topics for this paper. While a lot of great argument ideas have been restricted, there are still plenty of options open for discussion. This paper will be an excellent test of our ability to provide a point and support it. Just a few of the topics that I have considered will provide excellent room for debate. One of the topics is, "can playing more video games actually help us be successful." There is actually evidence to support that playing video games can help with productivity in our everyday lives. They could help us learn how to work for, and achieve our goals. I am taking the argument for playing video games more often than we do now. I am not simply taking the argument because I play video games myself; I can see how this could actually be true. All video games are based on a system of reward. You do various tasks to in order to achieve a reward. This could also be applied to real life. In order to accomplish your long term goals, such as getting into college, you must do various important tasks to prepare yourself financially and academically. You strive to ďget to the next level,Ē so to speak. The counter argument to this is that video games lead to a dulling of the mind. They say too many video games can lead to someone becoming unproductive or lazy. While there is evidence to support this as well, Iím not sure this is completely true. One of the other topics I considered for my paper was the ďwould a flat rate paid by all classes of Americans benefit or current economic problems or would it hurt us further.Ē I would take the argument that It would benefit the country. If we all paid the same rate adjusted only slightly for the income levels of each of the different classes there is evidence and statistics that support the idea that it would be beneficial. Imagine if there wasnít a rich man holding on to all his money because he hates the current tax rate; he could go out and buy things to stimulate the economy. This would also benefit those of the middle and poor class. They would be able to contribute to the system without having to pay a ridiculously high amount. There is also a counter argument that says that this would cause disarray and mayhem to the whole financial system. There are some projections that say that there would not be enough money in the budget to support America and we would collapse into a financial sinkhole. I hope to make a good, persuasive argument and hopefully convince someone to at least consider my side in whatever topic is chosen. These are not the only ones I have pondered writing about. I have a few more that may end up chosen as my topic. Time and planning will tell what topic will enter the great debate!
