Con

My opponent has chosen to forfeit this round, but since neither of us have provided any contentions. I will start with a few.

The only argument my opponent provides is, "No seriously, go to Australia and you will see what I mean." Well, obviously I can't go right now. I ask my opponent to explain why he thinks Australia is so great. What is it about them that makes them so great.

My contention is that Australia isn't great. Firstly, goods are very expensive in Australia because the sales tax is very high. There are also many poisonous and dangerous animals there. Some examples are tiger snakes, blue ringed octopuses, and great white sharks. Also, due to the hot climate, Australia has the highest skin cancer rate of any country in the world. Finally, Australia is very much isolated from the rest of the world. This makes living there hard and expensive.

My opponent has forfeited, not provided a source, and not provided a valid argument. Vote con.

Australia is a country! That is the most ignorant thing I have ever heard from an American, yes it is a continent but a country at the same time.

No because Australia is not a country, it is a continent. Therefore it can not be the best country if it's not a country to begin with.
