Pro

The Confederate flag should be illegal.
kasmic

Con

No it should not.
Debate Round No. 1
LovelyLadyM

Pro

LovelyLadyM forfeited this round.
kasmic

Con

The flag should remain legal as we live in a society that accepts the freedom of expression, and freedom of speech. To make a symbol like the confederate flag illegal would violate these freedoms. Thus is should remain legal.
Debate Round No. 2
LovelyLadyM

Pro

LovelyLadyM forfeited this round.
kasmic

Con

Pro never made an arguement and therefore did not meet the burden of proof. The resolution is negated.

Silly debate, but illegal no, that would be against freedom of speech. However, it should not be flown on/in government owned property

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct goes to Con since Pro forfeited all rounds but the first. Arguments goes to Con. In round 1, Con made the argument that banning the confederate flag would violate freedom of expression; this went unaddressed due to the forfeiting. Pro didn't make an argument in his only round; he simply restated the motion. Neither side used sources. Neither side's grammar was bad enough to justify a vote.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro ff many times, so conduct to Con. Con was also the only one who made an argument, so arguments to Con by default.
