I am in favor of providing a forum to wish other members a Happy New Year's!

This is also the best for me or anyone else to provide such a forum on debate.org, and as such, each person should reply below to wish everyone a Happy New Year's.

My opponent, however, opposes season's greetings and should not be voted for.

Note: This is a 1-round debate.

Alright. I oppose you on every level I can think of!!!

I am going to go line by line in reverse order on each statement you made, starting with the last one.

"Note: This is a 1-round debate."

>>This insinuates that my round is equal to your round. However feeling that my round will be more profitable I want to consider it entirely different from yours. Therefor I oppose you and call this a 2 round debate!

"My opponent, however, opposes season's greetings and should not be voted for."

>>This is simply not true! The resolution states -People should Comment Below to Wish Debate.org Users a Happy New Year's!- my only burden in this debate is to oppose this resolution which is what I am about to do.

"This is also the best for me or anyone else to provide such a forum on debate.org, and as such, each person should reply below to wish everyone a Happy New Year's."

>>There are many flaws with such a statement. First off you have not provided debate.org users with a forum, simply with a debate. Secondly lets examine exactly what you are saying here. "wish everyone a Happy New Year's" Notice that apostrophe s! Apostrophe s ('s) is used to show possession therefor your statement makes no sense at all! I have sat here like many fellow debate.org members for hours trying to figure out exactly what we should be wishing everyone. A happy new year's resolution? A happy new year's day? A happy new year's weather storm? What are you saying!?!?!?! I don't understand! This would be like walking up to me and saying "hey we should pray for bob's." Bob's what!?!?!?

"I am in favor of providing a forum to wish other members a Happy New Year's!"

>>....... 's..... enough said. Therefor I will give our spectators, judges, voters, my voting issue today. As the resolution states what it states I am going to offer a counter plan that does not fall under the resolution.

Counter plan: People should comment below to wish debate.org users a happy new year! A wonderful New Year's Day and great resolutions to boot.

Thank you. =)
