resolved, gum balls should be one color.

Con

I assume the first round is for acceptance of terms. My burden will be to disprove the resolution that all gum balls should be a single color.

If gum balls were one color yo would not have all those kids crying about witch color they want.

Con

Firstly, I thank my opponent for his hasty reply. Now, I will commense my own arguments.

Human beings like the aspect of choice and free will, so limiting the colors of something they wish to purchase with money they themselves possess will upset them and may result in the decreased in sales of gum balls and the riddance of gum ball machines from restaurants, something many people consider a nostalgic novelty.

Also, color influences a person's emotions and health depending on the person. If you limit the colors, many people may be negatively impacted by it. But if everyone is given a choice as to what color they can have, they will all be able to find a color that pleases them.

Now I will attack my opponent's argument. My opponent states that with only one color of gumball no kids would whine about what color they received, but the opposite is true. If there was only one color, a child's desire for a certain color of gumball couldn't possibly be fulfilled and the child would incessantly be displeased and upset over gumballs.

I thank my opponent for this debate.
