I will be arguing that not voting in elections will make more of a difference than voting, which I will go further in depth with and initiate my arguments, later in round 2 of the debate

1) It is pointless in the sense that both opposing parties have identical interests

2) You are legitimizing an unscrupulous system

3) The more nonvoters, the stronger the message

4) The more nonvoters, the more societal goals you can accomplish

5) You have a right to complain if the person elected is a douchebag head

Round 1 is for acceptance only

Let the elections begin MOFO

Thank you to my opponent for starting this debate. As the BoP is shared, I will be arguing that Voting in Elections will make more of a difference than not voting.


My contentions are as follows:

1) Voting accurately polls a populus
2) Voting officially elects government offices
3) Voting increases the quality of a nation's overseas representation
4) Voting helps the economy
5) Voting voices the opinions of Americans


These will be further expanded during the second round of this debate.
