Hey guys!
My next assignment in my English 1301 is a compare and contrast essay. I've chosen to show the differences between CX and LD debate, and am currently in the process of interviewing several students and coaches.

I've decided to broaden my horizons and get information from people outside of East Texas. So here's my request for all of you; what are the 5 biggest differences between CX (policy) and LD debate? I would also ask that before posting, you review the thread so as not to post a difference that's already been posted.

1. CX is done in a team, LD is done by oneself
2. CX is evidence based, LD is Philosophy based
3. CX is an hour and a half, LD is forty-five minutes
4. The National CX debate topic lasts an entire year, the LD topic changes every two months
5. CX debaters need multiple tubs of evidence to debate properly, LD debaters typically just carry around a binder.

By CX you mean Policy?

Yeah, in my league it's called CX so I tend to forget the rest of the world calls it policy.

There are some states and circuits known for it, but for the most part LDers read slow. But I guess since you're in Texas they spread, so you're probably right.

CX is to LD as bareknuckle cage fighting is to high school wrestling.

Except circuit LD has become 1-on-1 policy with warrants and logical links.

1. Mestari is never third party.
2. If Mestari claims an intricate and page long TP role, he's telling the truth.
3. Mestari always jointly wins with the town.
3b. If he doesn't he's mafia.
3c. If he was mafia you wouldn't suspect him in the first place.
4. If you lynch Mestari you will lose because he will be the third party Doctor or some other townie power role.
5. DP1 lynches are good.
6. The answer is always no.

All circuit LDers spread.

1. In LD Negative has a case whereas Policy negs just debate the Affirmative case.
2. LD was made in the 80's... Policy was in the 40's (or so)
3. Policy is 2v2... LD 1v1
4. Policy is (generally) the debate of a plan... LD the debate of a resolution.
5. Policy has way more jargon.

Fix'd. The Wisconsin Debate Coaches Association has recorded resolutions as far back as 1928.
