On balance, the rise of China is beneficial to the interests of the United States.

This is a three round debate, the first round will be just for the basis of accepting the round. Any arguments made in the first round should be disregarded. The second will be a speech, no rebuttals should be made in that speech. The third round will be a rebuttal speech, with no new arguments brought up in that round. This is a past National Forensics League PF resolution (February 2013). Thank you....

Hi, this is my first debate. Basically the Pro side will argue that the American presence in the Middle East has had more of a negative impact than a positive one. And the Con side will argue that the Americans have been helpful. I don't agree with my viewpoint, but I chose it for an extra challenge. First round: Acceptance/ Opening Argument Second round: Rebuttal Third round: Rebuttal Fourth: Closing Argument. Okay should be fun! :D...

This is an argument I'm going to face in coming days. The pro team will likely be constructing a case which I will have to refute. I'm really unsure what can be run on this though. So someone hit me with something interesting....

Thanks to my opponent and judges. Here goes! Here is a brief summary of no child left behind and what it intended to do: 'The law reauthorized a number of federal programs aiming to improve the performance of U.S. primary and secondary schools by increasing the standards of accountability for states, school districts, and schools, as well as providing parents more flexibility in choosing which schools their children will attend." The bottom line of such is an aim at improving the perf...
