Should Texting and Driving be illegal in all 50 states? I am taking the position of For in this debate.

Few Rules tho:
-Round 1 is acceptance, Rounds 2 and three are for arguments, you cannot open a new argument on the last round.
-All arguments must be done in bullet points.

Looking forward to this :)

Ok.

Since pro has not provided definitions, I will be providing a few definitions

Texting: to send a text message to: The only way I can ever reach her is to text her.

Should: must; ought (used to indicate duty, propriety, or expediency): You should not do that.

I accept the Challenge.

You win! Your opponent, as instigator, had the burden to prove his case. You are thus more or less guaranteed to get conduct and arguments points from anyone who votes.

S&G is more debatable, given the above. :p

Reasons for voting decision: Grammar and spelling was horrible from both sides, but Con's wasn't quite as bad. So Con get's a point for that. Nobody made arguments so no argument points. Conduct to Con because Pro forfeited.

Reasons for voting decision: Forfeit. Pro did not meet his burden of proof as instigator/pro, and forfeiting a agreed-upon debate is not good conduct. Con provided the only sources. Pro's one plus was better spelling and grammar.
