Con

I don't understand where the United States gets off just handing out money to banks (Bank Of America) and Insurance Companies (AIG) but they fought it every time General Motors and Chrysler requested some money. I believe that the automakers actually somewhat benefited from the money unlike the banks/insurance companies. Even though the automakers went in to bankruptcy they actually used the money. The others used their bailouts and went on an "executive" "meeting" in Hawaii and in California. I also think the the government forced General Motors into bankruptcy (not Chrysler just GM). I am for the automaker success

Do you think the choices by fighting the requests from the automakers was right or wrong?

Please note this is my first debate via this website and I am still learning. My debates will eventually get longer

Pro

My opponent has created an incoherent argument that lacks any supportive evidence. Simply, my opponent has created an argument based merely off opinion and really has not created argumentation.

I support bank/insurance success because success in banking and insurance companies help with money circulation and the welfare of the people.

I support auto failure because it is a failure that is automatic. Automatic failures are one of the best kinds of failures because the failure is realized instantly and has time to be changed into a positive.

Resoultion affirmed. I heavily urge a Pro vote.

I remember when it was my first time a couple of months ago. You'll learn from reading other topics. You missing evidence, such as a source where you obtained your information. Debate has to be backed up with something, can't be an opinion from a mere child, you can also provide quotes.

Good luck, and have fun. Your first debates may not be successful but after a couple you'll understand it more.
