This quote debate, is not my idea. It orginally was rangersfootballclub's. I recently had a "quote debate" with him and find it very enjoyable (:

You vote on the person with the best quotes. You may say one each round. It is optional to say who said it, and quotes that you have made up can be used.

The quotes you use, should give off your self-expression,personality, and individuality.

Shall we get this started?

In order to easily keep track, I scored each quote from 0 to 5 (0 being mediocre, and 5 being great; I assumed that there would be no bad quotes). PRO got 10 points and CON got 11.

Fight for what you believe in.
Fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.
But never stop fighting"

Am I the "she" you were reffering to? Because I didn't make up any quotes, he did

Adolf Hitler was a smart man. The thing that pushed it for me was Con's quote that she made herself. I thought it was good and insightful.

I'm simply saying if the stereotypical votebombers attack this debate, they'll vote against you just because of Adolf Hitler.

Hitler was smart. I seriously doubt that most people in the world can rise to the power he held in Germany.

what's wrong with quoting Hitler ?? who cares what He's done ( ok everybody does ) but that's not the point the idea of this is to find the best quotes not to be biased because the person they quoted it from did something bad.
