|About Me:||I am a conservative nut-job. What else is there to say?|
|Activities:||Depends. I enjoy a good game of chess, though its more of a hobby then a sport. I enjoy a game of othello. ADD gives me poor visual skills--as proven by many tests I have taken--and the game forces me to utilize what skills I have. I enjoy hunting. I have recently adopted reading, something I wasn't into (as much) before. Things that I find challenging or thought provoking are fun. Although the other activities I talked above have me occupied, I enjoy the occasional video game. But it usually involves strategy and a topic that interests me. The total war series accomplish that goal. I am a Boyscout and am almost an Eagle Scout. Although I'm lazy, to prevent sloth and to increase my ability to function I like to do [some] exercise. I always break my bones (by accident). Is that considered an activity? Yeah, that sums it up.|

|Quotes:||"Latinos are Republican. They just don't know it yet." |
"A trend is a trend, but the question is, will it bend? Will it alter its course Through some unforeseen force And come to a premature end?" Alec Cairncross, 1969
"You cannot invade the mainland United States.
There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass."

"Man is not free unless government is limited."
"I would ask gun control advocates one question: name a single place in the entire world where murder rates fell after gun control laws were passed." -- John Lott, Ph.D
On the welfare state:
Pope Benedict XVI, "ultimately become[s] a mere bureaucracy incapable of guaranteeing the very thing which the suffering person " every person " needs: namely, loving personal concern".

I've done some fairly extensive research into the effects of gun control, the main arguments put forth by both parties, and the main focuses both sides have in this debate. I have come to conclude that proponents of gun control are severely misguided. I am not arguing that pro-gun advocates aren't misguided, but rather the gun-control side has practically no legitimate arguments for their position and the overwhelming majority of them refuse to properly consider the previous effects and the pote...
This is for Subutai's environmental tournament. In this debate, I am for the resolution. The BOP will be even since this is a contested issue--BOP shall not be negotiated. The debate structure is first round acceptance, second round arguments (no rebuttals), third round rebuttals/defense, fourth round rebuttals/defense. My opponent is familiar with the wording, and definitions are not needed. Have fun!...
Definitions: Death penalty: execution administered to criminals found guilty for murder (generally first degree). First round acceptance....
Definitions: "A solar roadway is a road surface that generates electricity by solar power photovoltaics" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_roadway First round acceptance...

Rebuttals/defense 5. 1000 character closing (DO NOT RESPOND TO THE OTHER CLOSING ARGUMENT--ONLY TO THE POINTS MADE THROUGH ROUNDS 2-4) ===Rules=== --> BOP even --> No forfeits --> If you wish to change the resolution, or any groundwork lied out in this first round, say so in the comments not after acceptance...
