Why did you start a new thread when you know there's already one on this exact topic?
: If you weren't new here, you'd know not to feed me such attention. This is like an orgasm in my brain right now. *hehe, my name is in a title, hehe* (http://www.debate.org...)

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

"The law is there to destroy evil under the constitutional government."
So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

did you not understand?

Or did you think that making multiple threads will get you more help?

My best advice: Don't debate that topic, because it's awful.

Even better advice: Quit LD and join Mock Trial or perhaps Parli debate. You won't regret it!

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... I'm an LD-er, and love it :) I just realize that I don't get to handpick every topic that comes along, and I usually learn to 'like' most of the topics; besides, it's not like he can't do LD AND Mock Trial :) though, as far as Parli, I don't know how he feels about it, but I'm just kind of 'ehhhh' when it comes to that kind of debate.

If you wish to become a better LD person then I would recommend you try your hardest on cases that present the most challenge. I can certainly attest to that. So to answer you question, I believe personally that standardized tests to pass high school (and high school only) are a good goal but one that is unable to be reached realistically, and thus cannot be attempted profitably. A value might be diversity and individualism might be its criterion. An opposing view might use quality of society as a value and something along the lines of societal evolution as a criterion (survival of the fittest). Don't take my advise as perfect because I haven't had time to think it over just yet.
In the relationship between Obama and the rest of the U.S..... I think the U.S. is getting the short end of the hockey stick.
