Con

Democracy is a huge threat to a nation since the freedom of speach and expression are a key to opening a country's door to non-conformity and new ideas. I believe in totalitarianism and think it is crucial for a nation to be dictated by the ruling party in a one party system. The best thing about dictatorship is no citizens have any since of entitlement as people in democracy's are never satisfied and always fluctuating with law and economic instability.

Well... Con challenged me. Con hasn't really explained what the resolution is, but I'm guessing it's something like "Democracy vs. Dictatorship". Con hasn't done anything to establish that a dictatorship is beneficial " non-conformity and new ideas are both good things (they make for a diverse and innovative society), and the constant challenges that citizens present to their governments in a democracy ensure equality and freedom. I don't see why dictatorships are more economically stable.

Caeser did live to be an old man, fixed the calendar, brought about a lot of reforms, brought Rome together. I guess you could say that he was succesful, despite his unfortunate end.

Yeah, I've thought about that myself. That's why I checked the character and time limits before accepting.

You know, there were a lot of dictators that did exactly that. Not all of them were successful, either.

You know what would have been funny, if your opponent hosted you into this debate with 10,000 characters of argument and all possible rebuttals already typed up, so he could just copy and paste them, leaving you scrambling for that ten minute period. I always wonder why people aren't looking out for that, when I do my turbo debates.

The Ides of March sucked. A bunch of people Caeser showed kindness to and offered forgiveness to, betrayed him. What people should take from that history lesson, is to never forgive your enemies, and to have them killed or exiled.

Yeah, I remember the Ides of March being pretty fantastic.

Democracy is why we have no real leaders in political office. Bring back Julius Caeser.
