the fact that Russia is a nuclear hellhole, does not make it a unlivable place.

russia is unlivable due to the fact that every step you take is into a pool of radition due to the fact that russians dont care about anything so they decide to dump all there toxic waste into the streets and carelessly launch their WMD anywhere they fell like it.

Both of my opponents argument show no evidence and therefore, are just like forfeitures.
Futhermore, Russia is clearly liveable as its population is at an astounding 142 Million and growing!
http://en.wikipedia.org...
Therefore, if 141 million people are living fine and well in Russia, it is absolutely livable.
Also, while my opponent may use the classic "Chernobyl" argument in his situation, I would like to point out that in a report released by the International Nuclear Safety and Protection Agency on December 5, 2007 that nuclear radiation is eradicated in 15 years time, Chernobyl happened in 1986, making the nuclear waste gone by 2001. So that point is also moot as that was the only, I REPEAT ONLY, nuclear incident to involve the outside environment, in Russia.
Therefore, I urge a PRO ballot

What CON should've done is just simply go with the argument that Russia is not a nuclear hellhole.

One vote is currently entirely going to PRO...

Well, here's how it should be:
BEFORE- PRO
AFTER- PRO
CONDUCT- TIED (1 forfeit on both sides)
GRAMMAR- PRO (Sentences start with a capital letter)
ARGUMENTS- PRO (CON's were based in falsehoods)
SOURCES- PRO (CON used no sources)

There is no reason to vote any other way.

Obviously it's not an unlivable place. Where else would Russians come from?
