I accept this debate.
As my opponent is PRO, he has the automatic Burden of Proof to prove that the United Kingdom should take back the United States (assuming due to societal reasons/moral reasons/economic reasons).
Look forward to your case and a fun debate. Good luck

I don't really see a point in making a huge, elaborate case, but since I have to make one in order to score "argument" points, I will make one, even as wrong and misleading it is (remember, my points cannot be refuted thus they must be true).

Contention I. The US has a lot of issues. As we can see from FoxNews.com article entitled "Lawmakers condemn 'barbaric' killing of American aid workers help by ISIS [1], the US has a lot of foreign policy issues that the rest of the world cannot take. The UK is mostly a liberal country, and because of that they cannot collaborate with foreign affairs with the US, since the US is mostly republican (as you can se from the current standing congress).
Because the UK cannot collaborate with the US on an allied level, I would not be so quick as to say that they could do so even if they were joined in the same country (the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Northern Ireland, the Contiguous United States, Hawaii, and Alaska), which means that the resolution is negated, since foreign affairs nearly completely defines a country.

(sorry this was more of a troll source but I just put it in there to accentuate the point that the US is mostly conservative, thus are more likely to take word from this source)

Unless pro says something about only one or the other, I will be debating on the US as a whole.

Only the 13 colonies or all 50 states?
