Ok, So I'll grant any affirmative first bout at arguments. Looking for some good philosophical argumentation.
Value debate style is preferred (LD)

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that your con stance is due to your disagreement that it's legal to protest at a funeral.

If not, send me a quick message and we can start officially during round two.

If so, then I'll have to argue that precedent is a powerful thing. If a demonstration, a peaceful and legal demonstration at that, can be outlawed then where stop? If you can outlaw one type of demonstration there's nothing to stop politicians outlawing all demonstrations because they'll have legal precedent.

You are not accepting any new messages. :'(
haha
Nah, not even U.S. specific, just in general.

Message status ratified.

And I think this is a US specific problem considering that it's happened once that I can recall here in England and we took the people that did it to court.

Ok, so my computer is bugging out.
Not u.s. specific arguments but a philosophically grounded debate.
I am against the resolution which states: Resolved: the action of protesting out be prohibited. Therefore I am against the action being prohibited.

You're either deliberately not reading what I'm asking you, or you're too grounded to realise that I am asking about your stance. Not how you want to debate, not why you want to debate, not even if you want me to wear a silly hat while you debate.

I have MANY silly hats.

I am against the prohibiting of the protests. which is what I have been trying to say.

So are you disagreeing with the stance that the protests should be banned or are you disagreeing with the protests themselves?

my con stance is more based on the philosophical grounding of liberty if you must know

Reasons for voting decision: Sad debate....Pro could have at least taken the opportunity to make an argument with ds3020's ridiculous conduct, but he didn't.
