What northwest state is better? Washington = pro, Oregon = con
Debate Rounds (3)
Also Oregon has no sales tax which means you save a lot of money when you want too buy things and can buy more extra things and not worry about the the tax.
Lastly Oregon is one of the best biking friendly states in the nation
First, you said that Oregon is an extremely beautiful state. Although I can not deny this I don't see how this can be used in this argument because the two states have essentially the same "land to work with."
Moreover, you say that Oregon is better because there is no sales tax. Although Washington does have sales tax, it rebalances the scales with income tax, so this argument is refutable as well.
Lastly, you say that Oregon is a more bike friendly state, although it is very bike friendly, SO IS WASHINGTON!
Please tell me something that makes it stand out over Washington. Thanks
Blazers forfeited this round.
If you want to see how scenic Oregon is look at this website for proof
While yes washington has no income tax , Oregon income tax actully give you benifits like a College saving plan which some of your tax money helps you pay for college
In addition to biking Oregon is an amazing running state to evidence by olympic trials held there every time
Also its college UO has a reputation for being one of the best business schools in the northwest, as it founded Nike and it s marketing program is ranked one of the best in the nation
You talk about great buisnesses, Oregon has the world Nike headquarters , and the US Adidas headquarters
In colleges Oregon has one of the best private schools in the Northwest in Reed which is much harder to get in then UW and gets you in great grad schools
Finally Oregon is a much cheaper place to live then Washington

Reasons for voting decision: PRO for conduct because CON forfeited a round. They both did not have any spelling or grammatical errors. CON was the only side to actually use and site a source. I think this is a tied debate on convincing because this debate is based souly on opinion. And neither side actually persuaded me that one is "better" than the other.
