This is 4 rounds so that both sides have a chance to give an opening statement before debating.

John McCain and George W. Bush... What can I say?
Both in love with the Iraq War? Check.
Both infringe our freedoms? Check.
Both treated better because of their fathers? Check. (McCain wasn't killed off as a P.O.W. because his captors knew his father was a high-ranking officer)
Both will be/are complained about but still voted for? Check.
Both have/will run the country on fear? Check.

I will not compare them both being republican because they are the most liberal republicans ever.

I do agree with you about how they have been the same, but they are not the same person and have differences. You will never now what John McCain will do until he is an actual president. Therefore, you cannot state that John McCain will do the same as George W. Bush. He may have done some things that might make you think he'll act like Bush, but you never know.

By, "You'll never know" You mean he won't win?

Also, this is my predicition. If he WERE to become president he would be the next George W. Bush.
DanTheLawyer

Con

I meant you never know until he is president. Your topic states that John McCain is the next George W. Bush. You're topic should have stated "I predict that John McCain is the next George W. Bush.", because the topic that is up now is a statement and not a prediction and A prediction means practically a guess or that a particular event that may occur in the future and you just said it was a prediction so it is inaccurate.

Okay then. If we're taking things literally here.

I'm a fortune teller. John McCain will be elected and will become almost a carbon copy of George W. Bush.
DanTheLawyer

Con

I am not trying to be a pain by telling you off or anything. I am just stating turthful facts, so i guess if there is nothing else to debate about then and if there is no arguement sence you only state a prediction then ok.

Yes I realize that you don't want to be a pain. I'm just trying to spice up this debate. :)

John McCain will be just like George W. Bush. Everyone will hate him, then re-elect him. That is my prediction based on his former actions.
DanTheLawyer

Con

Yes, McCain may do that, but if they re-elect him, then that means he must be doing something right.
