How many fallacies can you commit in one sentence?
Debate Rounds (2)
1. Round one is acceptance
2. Round two is the sentence
3. You must list your fallacies
6 Major Fallacies:
-ad hominem (personal attack)
-Correlation does not imply causation (a faulty assumption that correlation between two variables implies that one causes the other)
-Fallacy of composition (assuming that something true of part of a whole must also be true of the whole)
-hasty generalization (basing a broad conclusion on a small sample)
-argument from ignorance (assuming that a claim is true because it has not been proven false or cannot be proven false)
-argument from silence (where the conclusion is based on the absence of evidence, rather than the existence of evidence)
Argument from ignorance.
Shifting the BOP.
None of those fallacies are inherent in your sentence except the ad hominem. All of the others require further information to be established, as they deal with the persons reasoning that is not directly seen in the sentence.

Reasons for voting decision: Hard to pick because con cited less fallacies in their sentence but had extra fallacies and was even fallacious in the round, but pro implied maybe one or two fallacies that were not present in their sentence.
