1)Mosquitoes should be eradicated. >:[
2)The US should digitally remove some of the 0's off the national debt. >:D

Debate Round No. 1

Pro

3)Mac/Apple (company) should be illegal.

1. I disagree, I will take the NEG

2. FREEDOM
- In our demented version of capitalism, Mac/Apple has the right to exist as much as any other company.
- The United States prides itself on freedom
- In the spirit of competition, Mac/Apple offers an alternative to IBM and products of similar producers

3. SHOULD = OUGHT
This implies a moral imperative. Even the illegal/unethical practices of an individual within a corporation may be reprehensible, it isn't reflective of the corporation as a whole. There is no reason that Mac/Apple should not exist.

Thanks
