Con

today i would like to debate on whether or not we actually need lobbyists in this country.
it is in my personal opinion that lobbyists are just legalized bribers and should be stopped. I feel that lobbyists are unconstitutional and moraly wrong.
1. their checks constantly draw the governments attention away from the american people and points them in the directions of special intrest groups, corps, and the richest of the rich. it is sick and entirely un american

the first round shall be just stating your believes.

the second and third will be arguments

let the blood battle begin lol.

As the pro, I defend the actions of lobbyists, and indeed, do more good than bad. Their actions are necassary in involving people in government. I await con's response

Politics is a game, a very fun, manipulative game.
