Con

First round is acceptance.
Rule is that you have to provide past examples why or why not.
Good luck.
Another point I want to be clarified I will be using the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures for part of my argument.

Con

Well to begin with I would like to thank Pro for accepting my debate.
Ecclesiastes 8:9 states "9 All this I have seen, and there was an applying of my heart to every work that has been done under the sun, [during] the time that man has dominated man to his injury"

1) Herbert Hoover "He was known as a poor communicator who fueled trade wars and exacerbated the Depression"
2) Richard Nixon "Though politically gifted, he will forever be associated with the Watergate scandal and his resignation"
2) Barack Obama
-Obama is at war with the private sector. Obama is the most anti-business President since Franklin Roosevelt. Obama believes in big government Socialist tax and spend schemes to solve every societal problem, rather than free market capitalism.
- President Obama and his Socialist pals in Congress are bankrupting our country. The President has contributed more than $4 trillion to the $15 trillion National Debt in just his first 3 years in office with no end in sight. Obama's trillion dollar deficit spending SwindleUS Plans I, II and III failed to create jobs

Pro

rule- control, government, or dominion: under the rule of a dictator. http://dictionary.reference.com...
Thus meaning that a simple government is indeed a rule and a control over the average human.
For another example the government controls our actions and fears through propaganda. Leading to the people behaving the way the government wants them to.



The government also controls people through dictatorships and monarchies that are still in effect today. http://geography.about.com... Believe it or not Communist nations are still in the world today. Like the rights people in communist nations rob the average citizen of is where to work, what to make, religion, freedom of speech, freedom of what to buy, 75% tax rate, and where you live. The government tells you what to do. Communism source The American Pageant by David M. Kennedy, Lizabeth Cohen, and Thomas A. Bailey.

My opponet drops all of my arguements and to clearify why I didn't respond to his was because it shows that Obama is ruling over the American people and destroying this nation.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro easily won this, im guessing it was an extremely small wordcount debate, so i'm not going to ridicule either side for their lack of argumentation. BOP is on pro, Con did not disprove any of pro's points, and ended with allowing the voters to decide based off a previous round. Con next time use your final round as the final rebuttal (unless specified).
