I stand in affirmation to the resolution, "I will not contradict myself in this debate."

contradict- to assert the contrary or opposite of
http://dictionary.reference.com......

Rules:
1. In Rounds 1-4, CON will ask PRO ten Yes/No questions.
2. In Rounds 2-4, PRO will answer all of CON's questions with Yes or No, or with an explanation as to why neither Yes nor No would be completely correct or appropriate.
3. In Rounds 2-4, CON can point out any contradictions that he or she believes to be present in PRO's answers.
4. When CON points out a contradiction, PRO may use all of the following rounds to defend the accused contradiction until either CON drops the accusation or PRO admits defeat, or when the debate is over.
5. If CON ever fails to ask PRO exactly ten Yes/No questions when necessary, CON automatically loses.
6. If PRO ever fails to answer every question asked in the previous round by the rules, PRO automatically loses.
7. If PRO is never found to have contradicted himself, PRO wins.
8. If PRO is ever found to have contradicted himself, PRO loses.
9. Because sources are irrelevant to this debate, the two points associated with sources will be given to the victor of the debate.

Good luck, Jenny ;)

I'd like to make some grammatical changes to some error I've made.

"and look fDo yorward to this debate"
should be and look forward to this debate.

"Can God life everything?"
I meant to say lift.

In 26 when I said ,"Do you IB benefits people?"
I meant to say do you think IB benefits people.

My opponent has contradicted herself.

In response to question 21 she says that she is for gay Americans to receive the same rights as straight Americans. However, she is for civil unions. Civil Unions do not provide gay Americans the same rights as straight Americans.

In question 15 she states that she is altruistic yet she also states that she can be malevolent. Malevolence and altruism are antonyms, thus she has contradicted herself.

I thank my opponent for a great debate and look forward to her spending all night complaining about how I was grasping at straws. :)
