I'd love to debate Foreign Policy. That seems to be a popular choice judging by the poll numbers as well. However, you would need to balance it out ie we have to get some guys who are for the War on Terror. I recommend cpwill. He's pretty well read in on the WOT and has the total opposite beliefs of the "libertarian" type foreign policy. Not saying he's a war monger. He just believes that the US should be more aggressive in defending it's interests.
Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger. ― Ron Paul

People don't follow visions, they follow leaders with vision. If you are passionate about this proposal (and I assume you do since you took the time to compose it) then husband and nurture each and every apostate you have because they will be the secret to your success.
I'd do it for all listed except LGBT.
I only debate important subjects.
Maybe if people threw out more specific topics they might find someone who wants to debate them like Stop-Question-Frisk; Challenges of Modernity in Islamic Societies. Going in too broadly and you may end up with people not really debating an issue but talking around each other.
In order to make this work, I need to show there is a definite interest. I purposefully picked broad topics, because there could be so many pointed debates we could do.
The jist of this needs to be proven to other Mods that this is worth doing. While I am passionate about formal debates, I am not into strong arming a community into participating in something they have no interest in.
In fact, the only reason I placed this in the polls section, is because it would, in theory, get more attention than it would in feedback/suggestions.
Having said that, I will hone a specific topic for debate and make another poll asking for volunteers to participate.
Like others here, I have a full time job and real life commitments; therefore I apologize for not being more active in trying to garner interest.
I am a firm believer in letting a community dictate what interests THEM.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice....shame on me.
There are lots of people who have extensive knowledge about one topic while being a complete imbecile on the rest.
Keep them on that one subject.
