I want to debate the resolution: "America The Beautiful" should be the National Anthem ,...(as opposed to the star spangled banner). I would be pro.

I put this here because I don't want new members or Nono reincarnates accepting it, just as a precaution.

I don't have much of an opinion of this subject, though I'd like to know why you support "America the Beautiful" over the current anthem...A brief summary would suffice, ike.

You'll see when someone accepts the debate, it will be 2 rounds. I have a lot of technical reasons but, my most important (which I wouldn't mention in the debate) is that I think its a beautiful tune whereas the star spangled banner is boring.

That is very subjective...though you might succeed in proving the "technical reasons"...to why "America the Beautiful" is superior.
