lannan13

In order to defeat ISIS we have to kill the loved ones of terrorists

Howsoever interesting these questions are tha...

tax increases r inevitable and will be the most responsible thing to do.

raising federal taxes will be inevitable and be the most responsible thing to do the things that make up by far most of the budget are too hard to cut, and we shouldn't be cutting them too much anyway. social security, medicare, interest on the debt, defense, all make up over ninety percent of our budget. even if you wiped out the rest of the government, which would be the height off irresponsibility, you still couldn't even balance the budget, which is five hundred billion dollars. the budge...

Donald Trump is inept at finances. He ran up 900 million in debt and then 300 million in debt. [0] Elect trump and there is a good chance he will run this country further into debt.

whiteflame
bsh1

First and foremost, I'd like to congratulate bsh1 on making it this far in the tournament. Much as he has achieved this before, and even won before, I think it's a massive achievement with all of the fantastic competition we've had. Second, I am again honored to be debating a venerated veteran of the site. I have a lot of respect for bsh1 and his debating prowess, something I know he'll bring in spades to this debate. I hope I am up to the challenge, but most importantly, no matter how this ends...
