I will be challenging someone to a debate about ObamaCare. I will be taking the side that it will have ill effects on our country and economy.

Rules:
1. No pathos. (No shouting "all dis poor people need dis duznt muatter that they dunt wunt a job") This is about strictly facts with little opinions.
2. There will be 5 rounds.
3. The first round is only to accept the challenge.
4. Grammar and punctuation is to be used at all times.
5. Do not call anyone racist. (this is the 21st century, grow up) Just because you are in a particular party does not mean you are racist, sexist, gay, southern, northern, hippy, soldier, gangster, etc.
6. You will have 72 hours to give each round's argument.
7. My opponent must take the con position.
8. Your sources must be cited, otherwise your arguments will be invalid no matter if they are wrong or completely right.

Nvm, I cannot argue about this, I have to work on some homework. Perhaps we can call this a tie?

Con

This is unfortunate, I was looking forward to debating this subject. However, I realize sometimes real life issues interfere with our hobbies and I respect my opponent's wishes to withdraw without argument. I ask in the spirit of fairnesss that all members refrain from voting on this debate,

I purpose, for the purpose of not leaving an open debate on the site for about two weeks, that in each of the subsequent rounds we each simply enter the word "void".

I can take a side on a debate, and represent it effectively, whether or not I agree with it.
