REVISED RULES.

Given the well-written criticism, I have made it so you debaters can simply choose your own topic, agree to debate on your own time, and so forth.

Here are the pairs.
RoyLatham vs. FourTrouble
Vampire321 vs. TheBomb
StephenHawkings vs. RoyalPaladin
TUF vs. Contra
USM (or member x/replacement) vs. LogicOnRails
Viperking vs. Lannan 13

The only group whose interests I know encompass history/education....

Other rules including the single-elimination process as well as conduct still apply.

Good luck.

How about:

National Healthcare

Campaign Finance

Or, since you are pro- GWB, we could debate who was a better President: Clinton or Bush 43

Changed due to some hostility between viper and Lannan.

Honestly I am cool with whatever. I would prefer a philosophy debate, like an LD topic though.

Would you mind doing the current topic, targeted killing?

Well, for now, no...I'm going to wait and see if Viper comes back.

If 4 days have passed without Viper, then yes.

But that only applies to the actual beginning of the debate. You can still talk to THEBOMB in another PM about the topic...:)

Contra vs. TUF

TUF now stands as champion of his battle and the first to succeed in a debate tournament.

However, in these thralls of death where wildly weaving woe vacillates as haze in the days, one man cannot stand free of the shadow of death in his journey; soon he too, that miniscule grain in an entirety of cosmos, space, time, air, will be absorbed and rendered equal with the darkness. :)
