I still do not know what my final topic for my argument paper is going to be. I wanted to pick a topic that I had some background knowledge about before doing research. I wanted to do a topic that I actually had an interest in. But a lot of the topics that I thought of didn’t have strong enough support. I first wanted to write about professional sports players making too much money. But that was probably too cliché and close to the college sports players getting paid. I then thought about writing about divorces. I wanted to make my argument that they are too easy to obtain. However, that is my opinion I wouldn’t be able to get much support on that. I then thought to write about helicopter parenting isn’t effective. But like you said there are parents that do it the right way. Then I thought about writing how the practice of surrogacy is moral. But I couldn’t find strong support in order to make it a good paper. So now I am thinking of writing about how the government should be involved in fighting child obesity. I think this is an important topic because it’s an issue that is current in our society. If I cannot write about this topic I am not positive what I am going to write about. I think it is hard for me to find a topic because I have a strong opinion on things that I want to talk about but just because I have an opinion on it doesn’t mean it will be a good argument paper. It would be more of a rant. If I cannot write about this topic I may write about how the felony-murder rule. The felony-murder rule is the law that is place right now that states that those convicted of a crime could be charged with murder. I think that the felony-murder charge is not fair because there are many people that get convicted of a crime and have nothing to actually do with it. So people’s lives would be ruined because of something they did not do.
