Pro

Ohio is clearly not a state, just look at the facts:
-Everyone hates Ohio
-People from Ohio are stupid and
-Everyone still hates Ohio
Forthelulz

Con

Is Ohio a real State?
Yes, because it:

1. Is a clearly defined area, with an established government.
2. Is listed as a State.

Skulls for the Skull Throne.

getREKT420 forfeited this round.
Forthelulz

Con

We are taking the definition of "State" to mean a nation, not a state of being.

Ohio is a state, because of the reasons iterated in Round 1.

The only order worth remembering is "attack".

@Abbxy Actually, technically nations are called States. Like in Hamlet, "Something's rotten in the STATE of Denmark" (Aye, the King!).

WE COMPLETELY DISAGREE. OHIO IS A CLEARY A COUNTRY. HOW COULD YOU EVER THINK THAT OHIO IS A STATE? ARE YOU BLIND?! here are the facts
1. OHIO HAS EASTERN STOCK WHICH IS ITS NATIONAL BIRD
2. YOU HATE OHIO, THEREFORE IT IS A COUNTRY.
3. OHIO HATES ANYONE THAT HATES IT
4. AND FINALLY IT HAS ITS OWN FlAG. COLORS BEING RED (STANDING FOR REVENGE), YELLOW (STANDING FOR LIBERTY), AND CHARTREUSE ( STANDING FOR FALLEN TRIBUTES)

YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR MIND

thank you very much
sincerely, Abbxy

Reasons for voting decision: Easy vote. Pro forfeited 2/3 rounds conduct Con. S&G irrelevant. Pro had no sources and Con's source won the argument for him, so sources to Con. Pro claimed Ohio was not a state because people hate it and Ohioans are stupid, without showing how these bare assertions nullify Ohio's statehood. Con mentions that Ohio is listed as a state and Con provided Ohio's official state website clearly demonstrating that it is a state, which we (americans) all should have known already and which Con showed clearly in this debate. Since Pro could not refute Con's source, arguments to Con.
