Out of basic fairness I will not bring forth any arguments in this round and thus use up more space than my opponent to expound my points. I would have us fight it out over these 2 rounds each (although I would've preferred at least 3 rounds) and have us debate on the same ground with no advantages over one another. I wish my opponent good luck and look forward to this debate.

Thank you.
I shall start my argument by stating the fact of their positions as Julius being a roman dictator and Augustus being a(n) emperor and as Julius actually being his father.

emm, yeah. This was not really what I expected. My opponent has the burden of proof and he hasn't offered any reasons as to why a dictator is "better", nor why a father in this context makes him better. That is like me saying that Augustus is better because we honour him with the month of August. That does not in itself prove that he is "better". My opponent still has the burden of proof to demonstrate why Caesar would be a better ruler. It's also incumbent on my opponent demonstrate a viable criteria on which to base his opinion.
