Con

This argument will be about whether or not we should take the penny out of circulation. I will be arguing that we should get rid of it while my opponent will be arguing that we should keep the penny. The debate will go like this
Round 1: Opening statement
Round 2: Rebuttal
Round 3: Closing
I look forward to debating with whom ever my opponent will be and I will now give my opening statement.
We should get rid of the penny because they are useless. Each penny costs 1.7 cents to make meaning that we are wasting money every time we make money. By getting rid of the penny we could save millions of dollars each year that we could spend on more important things.

I accept the debate, and deliver my opening statement.


I think we should keep the penny, because if not then yo momma will have to raise her price to a nickel. And what yo momma gives me is only worth 3 cents. So yo momma would be getting a free 2 cents every time she services me.

Getting rid of the penny would actually be beneficial because prostitutes would lower their prices by a nickel to get exact change.
