I am arguing for the Nordic Welfare Model, a socio-economic model used in the Nordic countries which consists of a combination of a welfare state and a free market economy. Please ensure that you understand both economic models prior to your acceptance of this debate.

America has been heading headlong into communism and socialism. If Obama and his ilk are not stopped, we will be a third world country.
