Revolution

Pro

No arguments in the first round please. Please only accept definitions, and arguments will proceed beginning with the second round.

Death Penalty- Punishment for crime entailing the execution or death of the criminal

Eliminated- Removed, gotten rid of
VladimirPutin

Con

I will accept the definitions of eliminated and death penalty.

I cannot, however, see where this debate can go without some context. Is the topic limited to the United States? Is it limited to another country? The world? What form will the execution of this action take? An executive order, a law, a UN resolution?

I would submit that the Pro, since you have the burden of proof, be allowed to define the context of this resolution. Otherwise the debate will be rather hollow and likely filled with meaningless rhetoric.

I didn't want to disadvantage my opponent. Also, it's pretty pointless to debate without a clarification of the topic.

Con shouldn't have forfeited his rounds ; Pro has the burden of proof but it simply makes you look more credible when you don't forfeit.
