For this question, consider the following statements and choose the thesis statement that is the better of the two.

Argumentative thesis statements must make a claim about which reasonable people can disagree. Statements of fact or areas of general agreement cannot be argumentative thesis statements because few people disagree about them. 

 

1. City council members stink and should be thrown in jail. 

2. City council members should be term limited to prevent one group or party from maintaining control indefinitely.

The second statement is the better statement. People can disagree with the second thesis statement logically by arguing that city council members should rule indefinitely. Also, the first rule is a caustic opinion that is not very formal.
