Kleptin

Con

First answer these questions

1. Who is your candidate?

The candidate I am current supporting, is Mike Huckabee.

2. Why do you like your candidate?

I am supporting Mike Huckabee because I feel his views on the political issues I deem most important to the country at this time are the best for America.

3. Why is he better then Huckabee?

I do not believe he is *better* than Huckabee. I disagree with the topic statement above saying that Huckabee is BETTER than my candidate. Rather, I personally believe and am willing to argue that Huckabee is JUST AS GOOD AS the candidate I am supporting for the 2008 election.

***

I disagree with the statement "Huckabee is better than your candidate" for the following reasons:

Mike Huckabee and Mike Huckabee are the same person, therefore, by the rules of logic:

If A = A, the statement A > A is false.

Therefore, your stance is false.

If you are for Huckabee then why are you joining this topic?
if we are both for the same candidate then you agree he is the best candidate, there for there is nothing to debate about
Kleptin

Con

I am attending this debate because I disagree with your stance. According to the title, you believe that "Huckabee" is better than my candidate.

I am here to argue that Mike Huckabee is NOT, as you say, better than my candidate. I am here to argue that Mike Huckabee is JUST AS GOOD AS my candidate in nearly every way, shape, and form.

As I said before, since I support Mike Huckabee, your statement that Mike Huckabee is better than Mike Huckabee is FALSE.

Unless you have an argument stating that Mike Huckabee is better than himself, I believe this debate has been decided in my favor.

Pro

you know what I was talking about. I am not getting pwned because you know what I meant, and it is just annoying if you are going to put my title against me.
Kleptin

Con

My opponent has not addressed any of my arguments, nor has he presented an argument himself. Thus, I will reiterate my stance.

My opponent declares that Mike Huckabee is better than the candidate I support.

Since I support Mike Huckabee, I disagree with his statement that Mike Huckabee is better than Mike Huckabee.

I disagree for the reason that Mike Huckabee and Mike Huckabee are one and the same person, thus, it is IMPOSSIBLE for Mike Huckabee to be better than Mike Huckabee.

A = A

Therefore

A cannot be > A

I thank you for your time and for this debate.

"mainstream media would paint him as a nutcake religious zealot "

You don't need paint to notice that. You need to sniff paint to not notice it.

If by liberals you mean the "progressives" of the democratic party, no, Christianity is not the scariest thing to them. Almost all of them are in fact Christians.

Christianity isn't the "Scariest" thing to anyone I know of, although it's probably on my top 5. :D

Huckabee is a nice and affable man, but not a good candidate

Why?

becuase the mainstream media would paint him as a nutcake religious zealot and scare them away

Christianity is the scariest thing to liberals

This debate made me laugh. Funny yet cleaver logic on Kleptins part.

There are 5 reasons I won't vote for Hucklebee. (that's what I call him)

1) He's bald. In order for me to vote for him, he would need to get a toupee.
2) He supports a nationwide smoking ban.
3) He supports a constitutional amendment restricting gays from getting married.
4) He supports amnesty, and he gave illegal immigrants scholarships as Governer of Arkansas.
5) He supports legislating morallity, and hasn't got the memo about the seperation of church and state.

Huckabee is the worst candidate in the field of either party.

That being said from a debating stand point Kleptin obliterated this topic with logic. Gotta be careful how you use your words Roastshow.

Huckabee is not the right candidate for the presidency, however not everyone from Arkansas is a Bill Clinton clone and they definately are not fools!
