philippnes has been a country tied up to what is being given to us by our colonizers.it's just proper for Us as a country more powerful than us to at least show their real support by not anymore expecting so much on what Us is giving us...

good luck

i ask that my opponent clarify his previous round, expessially the term "doule out", a definition or explanation of which i cannot find. after i understand his premise, i will show why the US should not give the Philippines a sort of "doule out" without expecting anything in return.

my opponent still has not clarified his meaning. therefore i assume that the term under contention "doule out", is goblydeguk, and as such the US most certainly must NOT give the Philippines a sort of "doule out" expecting nothing in return.

thank you and vote neg.

well, this has been pointless.

voters, you should vote CON, because not only has my opponent not explained the meaning of the debate as i asked, but he only posted an opening. one that was not only vague, but one that lacked any arguments or evidence whatsoever.
so again, i urge you to vote CON

thank you.

that would make sense. too bad he never made a second argument to tell me that.

I rather suspect "doule" means "dole".
That is, the US should give the Philippines money without expecting anything in return.

"The dole" is another term for "welfare money" in many parts of the world.
