We need to feed the hungry because they are America's workforce.

::My argument::
There is this great Chinese proverb and it says:
"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
My opponent proposes to give a fish to those who need food. I say give them jobs and education hence a bright future ! I believe that its obvious that my proposition works better especially in long term.

::My opponents argument::
"We need to feed the hungry because they are America's workforce." As far as I am aware people with jobs have money and money can buy food. If the person is addicted to alcohol then we can help him hence he will from now on have food for himself. The same goes for other problems - they can be solved.

::Extra argument::
My opponents statement is absolute meaning that all hungry people should be fed. However, that is wrong:
1. A disease appears which kills people unless they're hungry. If the person dies hungry then the disease doesn't spread to other people.
2. A woman decides to loose weight to look pretty.
3. Free will allows us to make bad choices.

::Ad Hominems::
1.1"What a jerk."
1.2."Next time you catch this hunger illness I'll be the first to watch you fade away like the guy in Thinner."
1.3."~BOOM HEADSHOT~"

::Misspellings::
1.1" uyou'd"

::Arguments::
"If you were hungry uyou'd want food"
1.1. Unless I was on a diet or I cached that disease I made up in the previous round.
1.2. I would rather be hungry for many weeks and then get a job than be a nuisance to society while being fed by the society.

I am truly sorry if I somehow offended you but internet is not a good place to be offended in plus its seems you didn't understand what I was proposing. In conclusion I hope to debate you again when you're more experienced and skilled.
