Con

it will be cause most of the people that are lawyers took debate classes and without lawyers if people went to court most of the people would be in jail for getting blamed for something they didn't do

well, as everyone knows, lawyers are pain in the butts and most people don't like them. Also alot of people don't even know what debate is, if it were so special, everyone would know what it is, like brittany spears, everyone knows who she is, but no one knows what debate is. i had never heard of it until i was in my debate class.

Con

but still debate is good and most people do know what debate is so thats why im con

why is it good? does it save peoples lives? in the end of your life, when you are on your death bed, what will you be thinking about? a debate you made in junior high or high school? or will you be thinking about your family and what a great time you had with them. i'm pretty sure you will be thinking about your family.

so i urge you to vote for pro, because debate is just a bunch of bickering with no meaning.
gabbz217

Con

i never said people would be thinking about the debates they had in school but i did say it was a good thing in peoples lives because if they go to court they could debate their way out of death row so thats why i urge you to vote con
