BlackVoid

I thank Blackvoid for accepting this debate, and look forward to an interesting discussion. First round for acceptance. No semantics. Abuse forfeits. Other standard debating rules. CLARIFICATIONS: "TEA Party" in the Resolution is intended as a general stand in for "conservative" extremists who have moved the party far to the right and interfered with its ability to win elections and to "govern from the center." It is NOT intended to refer to the literal, formal organization of the s...

Specifications on the exact meaning of "conquer" and "Africa" will be elaborated on in the next round (don't worry, I'm not going to pull any semantic tricks.) Debaters are permitted to make a seperate debate to place their citations in, to save characters.A...

If you see a way to make someone else happy at little cost in happiness to yourself, it would be a good thing if you helped out. If you make someone unhappy without making someone else happy, you did a bad thing. "The most happiness for the greatest number," is a slogan as...

Thanks to F-16 for accepting this bada$$ debate. I'm sure we've both been looking forward to this, especially since we're both playing devil's advocate.

Definitions:State - a politically organized body of people occupying a definite territory (1)Justified - More...
