Politicians love to buy votes, and often they use our money. Consider the concept of giving us a $500 per child tax rebate, rather than using the money to pay off the National Dept. That $500 per child will cost our children $17,000 at 8% interest. That's $366 a year for 47 years. That's what they'll pay for some politician that they will probably have never heard of, to get elected. How about that for a speech topic.
If you are looking for science related speech topics, there's plenty of those here as well. One amazing theory is called Highlife Theory
. It is about a discovery of a new form of life, in fact, the largest lifeform on earth, yet has remained unknown to us. Highlife Theory give you understanding of life itself. It will stimulate your mind in more ways than you can imagine, and could easily spawn dozens of speech topic ideas. Even change your philosophies of life.
You'll find many other science speech topics in the Science Area
. There's a page
which has a lot of evidence which shows that light is actually a wave, rather than a particle, which if true, means that the whole field of Quantum Physics is invalid. This is a huge debate in the world of science as you can imagine!
I've heard that the requirement of a high school education for finding a job originated as an attempt to discriminate against blacks. I haven't had time to check it out, but it seems to make sense, as before discrimination was outlawed, companies would hire high school dropouts regularly. You might consider checking this out and using it for a speech topic.
Joint Social Security would make a good speech topic. Social Security, often benefits the other person, for example, if a man has worked his whole life and dies, his wife benefits from social security. If his wife dies, he should get just as much social security. Likewise, if they get divorced, his ex wife would be entitled to alimony, why not make it easier. Why not split the Social Security right from the beginning, so both of them collect Social Security points, even when only one of them is collecting wages.
This is necessary so that in the event of a divorce of a long term relationship, the house wife (or house husband) will be allowed to collect social security retirement income. Social Security is intended to protect people from hardships, not create hardships for the unlucky ones. There can't be any people slipping through the cracks.
Here's another similar speech topic idea. Life insurance is intended to provide a family with income, should an income source (or house keeper/child rearer) die. Doesn't it stand to reason then that if the insured person becomes disabled, that the life insurance company should be required to pay the claim at that point, as if that person was dead? If that person can no longer make income (unless they are retired), the family then needs that extra income to make ends meet, which is why they bought the insurance in the first place. Insurance should provide a positive safety net with almost no way to slip through.
