The English in the Northern US are descendants of the Normans, whereas in the South -- Anglo-Saxons
Debate Rounds (2)
The first major dynasty of Scandinavian descent in American history was not from the North, but in the South -- Al Gore. Gore is a Flemish name, of the Germanic group who migrated to England in 1066.
Names can be meaningless. An example, my username is my real last name, Weiler. Weiler is a German name. My ancestry is more British and Irish than German.
My opponent claims there is evidence in support of this resolution. I would love to hear it.
Those ring any bell? The last two are common in the North. Gore is common in the South.

Reasons for voting decision: It's an interesting idea for a debate, but way too short to make the key points. CONDUCT: Yes pro acted poorly in the comment section, however that is outside what we're allowed to vote on; with that said pro you claimed to have explained things that were not a part of your argument; perhaps it was buried within one of your sources, if so you should have quoted the source within the debate. S&G: Fine on both sides. ARGUMENT: Instinctively I want to give this to con for how weak pro was, however con did not rise to the challenge either. Had he merely pointed out the low feasibility of there being no crossover between those Normans in the north and Anglo-Saxons in the south, this would have easily been his. SOURCES: Con did not refute the sources, more of just ignored them... However pro did not properly tie them into his argument (such as quoting them, or explaining the gist of what they say; the audience is not expected to read more within the sources than the length of the arguments).
