I believe that America, as a COUNTRY is focused in the wrong areas. America seems to be focused on what is happening OVERSEAS instead of it's own territory. Don't get me wrong, I think we should do SOMETHING about the problems overseas, but we shouldn't devote more time, supplies, and energy to fighting Isis than the homeless in our own country.

Acceptance:
I would like to thank DebatevDebate's for instigating.


Semantics:
Since there is an apparent lack of definitions, I will establish definitions in order to maintain an equal understanding of the Semantics.

America: The United States of America, an independent sovereignty in the Western Hemisphere.

Focused: Paying particular attention to something.

WRONG: An acronym standing for 'Women Rapped by Only Negro Gangstas.'

Area: A region or specific topic.

Rules:
Round 1 - Acceptance

Round 2 - Opening Arguments
Round 3 - Rebuttals
Round 4 - Counter-rebuttals
Round 5 - Conclusion

Since the meanings of words have been established, we can no longer debate semantics.

No kritiks/K's.

Keep an approrotate conduct.

My opponent may begin the debate next round.

No new arguments can be made after Round 2.

Failure to follow the rules will result in a complete forfeiture of the debate

Note to Voters:
Just for clarification, my opponent is for America being focused in the WRONG areas, although his Pro/Con stance says otherwise. Do not penalize me or my opponent for this.

Negating Case:

America is not focused in the WRONG areas; here is an example:

Read this article: http://www.wmcactionnews5.com...

Also, to disprove the resolution, I will show that America is, in fact, focused on other issues.


1. ISIS and the Jihad: http://www.nytimes.com...

2. Presidentail Politics: http://www.foxnews.com...

3. Ukraine and the Crimea: http://www.reuters.com...

I figure 3 examples is enough. I await your refutes.
