People who advanced from round 1:

TUF (defeated MrBrooks)
RoyLatham (unopposed)
Buddamoose (ConservativePolitico never accepted the debate Challenge)
Contra (LK won but is unable to continue so Contra advances)

Congrats to everyone who advanced, here are the next rounds topics :D

1) The biggest issue going on here in Florida (my home state) continues to be the debacle that is the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman..... However rather than do another gun control debate or do a mock trial of the whole ordeal I feel that a debate should be done over the piece of legislation that caused the whole thing. The stand-your-ground law.

Pro will be Pro the Stand your ground law
Con will be Con the Stand your ground law

Pro:
Con:


2) Yesterday was 4/20, and at the university of Colorado police forces used certain chemicals to disperse a couple hundred teenagers from smoking weed to celebrate 4/20. Although the event received little attention this debate will be a classic legalization of Marijuana debate
Pro will be Pro legalization of Marijuana
Con will be Con legalization of Marijuana

Pro
Con


Keep in mind, this isnt an elimination round. Those who win go on to the final round, those who lose will then debate for third place.

Good luck to the four of ya :D

For the marijuana debate, could I argue for the decriminalization of most drugs?

I'll take Pro on the Stand Your Ground law.

Going against marijuana legalization is nearly a sure loss on DDO. Maybe the debate should rather be about students having a right to disrupt classes for political protests.

That's how I feel about the marijuana legalization one too, even though I feel I could make a good case for it. I would surely be votebombed lol.

Ok I have a new plan.

1) Buddamoose resigns, he takes third place, TUF and Contra go for the title
2) Buddamoose chooses a debate, If he chooses to go against Contra than TUF advances to the final round
3) Buddamoose chooses a debate, If he chooses to go against TUF than Contra advances to the final round

As for Contra and TUF, It was decided at the start of the tournament what the final topic will be.

Whatever topic receives the most discussion on the next episode of the Daily Show will be the topic that will be what the final debate will be about.

Thus the topic of the debate will be picked Tuesday afternoon. Be online sometime to try to get the spot you want.

That is all for now

How is Tuesday afternoon the earliest time if the show is at 11 PM Tuesday?

BTW, TUF I have a Track meet on Tuesday, so we are both at a disadvantage.
