Is the Federal Government necessary to have a stable life here in the United States
Debate Rounds (1)
Definition 1: Stable=Not likely to change
My opponent has essentially made my argument for me. By saying that "The government is trying to control every aspect of your lives", my opponent is indicating that the federal government impacts lives daily. This means that change would occur if the federal government was lost because without the cause causing an effect, the effect is gone too. Going back to stable's definition, in order to have a stable life, things would need to be not likely to change. However, not having the government would do the opposite of promoting a stable life as change would inevitably be included.
Additionally, not having a federal government would make it impossible for stable life in the United States for another reason. This is that the federal government is what makes the states united. Without the federal government, there is no United States of America, just 50 random states.
Not having a federal government would induce change that would promote anything but stability.
Without the federal government, the U.S. doesn't exist, therefore stable life within can't exist either.

Reasons for voting decision: Getting rid of the Fed Gov't = life changes significantly. This means life is actually not so stable. Further, a confederation of 50 states without a central authority means many would split apart and not be related in any way. This the nation itself would fall apart. 1 round = pros case (which I summarized) is dropped. Pro wins. Cons argument is really weak and just says the Fed Gov't controls us. But that has nothing to do with stability. That argument is better fit for a debate determining whether or not the government is good.
