Our government has many flaws, sadly many people don't see that. There have been many incidents of government abusing its power and over stepping its supposed boundaries.

I would face an opponent who is either very knowledgeable on this subject or one who is not very knowledgeable.

My beginning question is, how come so many people are blind to the corruption in our government? How is this possible? Could the government be perfectly fine? I think not.

So I accepted the judge nomination, and I am honored to follow this round and judge it. Can't wait to see this debate unfold!

I believe he is referring to the United States of America. US= United States

Also I have taken a 101 college level course in American government, so my education on the subject is substantial.

I want this challenge because I don't have that many debates on this site yet. But you need to let me know what country you are referring too. Also, the resolution is highly opinionated so in a sense, if I don't think government is corrupt then I should win. So are you going for a debate with more sources to determine opinions? If so then bring it on.

Which country are you referring to? You know it's not only Americans in this website, you should be careful to provide more details when wanting to debate.

I would like to take this challenge, though I am only adequately educated in government.
