i will get the fewest votes in this debate.

when the poll shows that i got the fewest votes.... my affirmation will be affirmed. that means that i really won this debate even if i got the fewest votes.

when most people are voting against me, that could only mean that the voter participating in voting against me, is contradicting himself. that is, i will have won the debate so how can you be voting agaisnt me?

the only way to ensure that you are in the right as a voter, is to vote "pro".

vote wisely.

Pro has seemed to overlook one glaring hole in her argument:

Not all votes have the same weight.

Pro takes only of votes, not points.

Thus, it is perfectly possible to receive a greater number of votes, yet lose the debate due to lack of points. Consider: 5 single point votes for Pro against 1 six point vote for Con.

With this in mind, Pro can no longer rely on logical paradox to determine a future outcome and Pro must provide some other argument or reason for somehow knowing the future outcome of this debate.

Indeed, vote wisely.

Ah. A forfeit. Not sure how to interpret this.

Is she conceding the argument based on the points I made, or trying to merely refute me in practice by quickly ending the debate and hoping for fewer votes?

The world may never know.

Theoretically, this debate could not have even gotten one vote because of the inherent paradox within it.
