Resolved: A just government ought to prioritize civil liberties over national security. I define the important terms as follows: Civil Liberties: as defined by About News, are the rights guaranteed to citizens or residents of a country or territory as a matter of fundamental law. National Security: as defined by Dr. Diane A. Desier...

Round 2: Arguments, Rebuttals This is going to be a short debate. I also want to point out that I will have no chance to have rebuttals on my opponents arguments, so therefore he or...
