Resolution: Children in US schools should be required to say the pledge of allegiance.

First round is for acceptance.

I accepted having thought that the arguments said that Con was really taking the Pro side because of a glitch, so we have chosen to just draw on this debate.

I suppose that's the only way to go. haha, I apologize for this. It's a fabulous debate topic though, I never say the pledge.

It doesn't remove me, it's a forfeit. I don't want to lose the debate because this is awfully glitchy website. XD

You can wait out the time, and I think you will be removed from the debate, which opens a space for a new opponent. Feel free to play devil's advocate, though... :P

Holy crap, DDO glitched and said you were Pro, that's why I accepted...
