Hello all,

With the Ohio primaries quickly approaching, eventually followed by the election, I am in a highly political mindset. I've come to understand that Bernie Sanders, of the Democratic Party, is a socialist. While I first saw socialism as a wise idea, that only lasted for a short two weeks. I am now against socialism, as I see it never working.
The following topic will be argued: Socialism is bound to fail. As the Pro in the argument, I shall be agreeing with this statement, while Con is to disagree, working to show that socialism is not bound to fail.

Rules and Guidelines:

Five Rounds:
R1 - Acceptance (No Arguments/Rebuttals)
R2 - Opening Arguments
R3 - Rebuttals
R4 - Rebuttals
R5 - Final Rebuttals, Closing Statements

- 72 hours given to make post
- 10K character limit

Voting Period: 10 Days, Comments Required, Open Voting.

If any arguments are made in R1, an immediate forfeiture will be required.

Best of luck.

Why do you get to make an argument and I only get to accept?

Doesn't seem fair.

10,000 characters and 5 rounds? No one is going to read that crap. And if they vote, Blade-of-Truth will remove it anyway.

Why the heck do you ask someone to make a commitment to an insanely long debate that no-one will read or vote on?

For pure complaining and attempt of quarrel in the first round, the opposition has broken the set rule, and is therefore required to forfeit.

This is truly a shame. I was hoping for a well-worked debate.

Good day.

I accepted the dabate and didn't make any arguments. My opponent has conceded. Any votes in his favor will be reported.


Thank you. I hope you have a good day, as well. Better luck with the next opponent. Maybe they won't be a flaming arse, like me.

Oh, and consider the 10,000 character argument advice. My goodness, they're tedious. They really, really suck. It's an on-line debate, not a thesis.
