Here are the rule twists:

1. There will only be 3 rounds, and they will only last 5 minutes a piece.
2. If you forfeit, you lose.
3. If you copy/paste an argument -- which is difficult given the 500 character limit -- you lose.
4. You cannot cite sources -- there's the twist. You have to speak intuitively, common-sensically.
5. The voters should only reward 7 point votes. If you can't award 7, please award 0.

R1 is for acceptance.

Well the rich have earned their money so they don't deserve to have it taken away, a more suitable topic would to ask for taxes to be abolished because they are already high enough!

This is a rhetorical debate, his argument will be judged by its rhetoric, not its truthfulness. That being said, I actually found it a very good argument for the rule "You have to speak intuitively, common-sensically."

I will be voting in this debate because Rhetorical debate is my specialty. I will overlook the forfeit if you can show me a good exchange, BobTurner :D

Probably because you, like a slimeball, accepted when I was in a class.

But that's ok. You're argument was utter filth, but we'll look past that.
