Best Answer
Personally, I'd choose something controversial and political. (Probably depends on your school). Like:

Has the war in Iraq increased our security, or made us more vulnerable to terrorism.

Or,

Should evolution be taught in schools? Discuss whether teaching evolution either (a) violates the doctrine of separation of church and state --- (the argument would be that it is a religious concept) or (b) is compelled by the doctrine of separation of church and state -- (the argument is that science is objective and independent of religion and that all contrary teachings are inherently religious in nature).

Or,

Whether current slang represents an evolution of the english language or violates the language as taught (or both.)

Good luck!

    the best speeches are about things you care about. if you really like music, do a speech on the illegal downloading; or perhaps you really love kids, do a speech on abortion or education; if you enjoy law, do a speech on the death penalty. pick something you care about and run with it, make sure it's something that interests YOU. good luck

    How about your stance on assisted suicide. I have a college friend who is doing it and it's really interesting.
