Round 1: Acceptance, Con chooses topic and position
Round 2: State argument
Round 3: Rebuttal
Round 4: Counter Rebuttal and Conclusion

I have not participated in many debates, so this debate will be both a discussion and a learning experience

Because in the interest of fairness I will only give the resolution and not pick sides, I propose this new speech layout. If you dislike it we can choose a different one in the comment section.

1) Acceptance/ Resolution
2) Side+Constructive/Constructive
3) Rebuttal/Rebuttal
4) Summary/Summmary

Resolution: The United States of America ought to act as the "World's Police".

Police:
  1. the civil force of a national or local government, responsible for the prevention and detection of crime and the maintenance of public order.

Con

My opponent has forfeited a speech. I request all courtesy points be given to me because of this.

Since my opponent had to choose positions in the speech that they missed, I have nothing to debate.

If my opponent fails to return, please vote Con.

My opponent has again forfeited. I request all courtesy points.

I will choose my own side to allow voters to give me the points for best arguments.

We should cuz 'Murica.

Kidding of course.

The USA should become the world' police because it has the most powerful military, and thus has the most power to back up what it does. In addition it should want to becasue this will give it more global power.

Vote Con.

If you would like to, I guess so. We do have 4 rounds after all, so I guess we could change the structure to fit. Sorry for the delay.

Before we begin in order to make it more fair would you like me to merely present a topic and allow to pick a side?
