I am considering several topics for my argument paper. I couldnít decide if I wanted to do a topic I felt strongly about or if I wanted to do a topic that would be easy. As I was looking up topics to think about doing I came across two I was interested in. The first one I would have to look into way more, due to the simple fact I donít know much about it. The first topic was oil frocking. Honestly the main issue with this topic was the sole fact that I donít even know where I stand with this topic. I mean yeah you hear about it in geography class but what do we really know. Iím sure there is many more issues no one except the people behind oil frocking knows about and it would be an interesting topic to research more about. Iím not sure if I would be able to develop a good argument paper because I havenít done actually research on the topic yet. My second choice of topic would be something along the lines of should we drug test people who are on welfare? This topic is interesting to me because Iím not stupid and I know lots of people who do drugs. Drugs arenít cheap even simple weed cost 20 dollars a gram unless you buy in bulk. I have always wondered how many people who are on the streets doing drugs the government is keeping up. This topic would be interesting to research and write about. This topic would also be more comfortable to me because I actually have some personal opinion instead of knowing nothing about the topic. The potential counter argument for this could be itís an invasion of privacy. Just because people who need additional assistance have the same rights as everyone else and they shouldnít have to do things the rest of the people doesnít have to do. Also when people sign up for welfare the rules have to be stated in the sign ups, therefore the government cant make new laws and expect people who are already on welfare to obey them that would be considered grandfathered in.
