I'm an American, and I think we should start a war with our own government. I think we should get as many giant power weapons as we can, since they are so easy to get, and start a rampage! We should invade government buildings and shoot as many people as we can, and also, we should blow up all kinds of sh*t! It would give our government a scare, and I think it would really get a message through. What do you guys think? Please debate.

I assume that the debate format will be as follows:
1. Acceptance only

3. Rebuttals and new arguments
4. Rebuttals only

(a) the method(s) through which the American citizenry will "turn against" the American government,

My opponent forfeited 4 of 5 rounds, provided no reason to vote Pro (other than explosions, which, I'll admit, are cool), and failed to meet any of my burdens. Vote Con to avoid this chaos and this trolling. Thank you.

@Nosmas: Are you talking about Conservatives just going on a rampage and slaughtering everyone who's tied to the Government? BAD IDEA. VERY BAD IDEA.

2 questions. Is this a joke? And if not, why should we turn against our government? Why not just elect different congress members who listen to what you want?

Reasons for voting decision: Flawless victory in arguments of Pro: "We should invade government buildings and shoot as many people as we can, and also, we should blow up all kinds of sh*t!" was too convincing for me and went unrebutted by Con. Unfortunately "Please debate." is not a sentence so S&G to Con. Pro use a naughty s-word so conduct to Con and Con used their brain as a source whereas Pro didn't have on to begin with so Sources to Con.
