In my opinion, only government can't afford to solve all problems. If we pollute streets, its work will be wasted.

Pro

This resolution is about whether "only the government is responsible for keeping the streets clean" or not. Con's stated opinion is that only the government is responsible for keeping the streets clean. So, to win, CON has to provide reasons which prove that keeping the streets clean is exclusively the government's responsibility. If anyone has any responsibility of any kind other than the government to keep the streets clean, then CON loses.

So, here is why CON loses:

Everyone who uses streets for any purpose has a responsibility NOT TO LITER, and therefore all such persons have a responsibility to keep the streets clean.

For example, if a pedestrian walks down the street eating a burger from In and Out, that person has a responsibility not to throw his litter on the side of the road because. That means he has a responsibility to keep the streets clean.

A second example is found in considering drivers who smoke cigarettes while driving. They have a responsibility not to throw their cigarette butt out the window while they are driving, and therefore have a responsibility to keep the streets clean.

So, because all people who use streets have a responsibility to refrain from littering them, it's not just the government's responsibility to keep the streets clean.

I win.
