I gave a link that used the exact same wording my opponent did, yet she claims she didn't plagiarize. I don't want to make the readers go to the link, though. How do I prove she plagerized?

You quote what she wrote, then quote what the website says and let the voter decide.

Pretty simple....

Why (do you not want to make the readers go to the link)?

And yes, Ike is correct; you can also simply name the title of the article, identify what website, etc.

If you point it out, and people see that it is the case, what does it really matter if she admits it or not?

It's a sign of the times. I remember the arguments way back when, when the Internet was new. Everybody said they would have access to information instantaneously and would be able to write better and more comprehensive reports and the like. It's all cut and paste laziness now. The Internet has made those who would publish more lazy not more informed. Look at the news media, they use the Internet for 90% of their reporting information. It is rare that they actually get information from the horses mouth. If they can find 3 blogs that say the same thing they will report it as fact and never even try to verify it from the source. That would mean getting up out of their chair and doing actual investigative reporting. Plagiarism it's the new norm, get used to it.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

I love catching people when they copy great chunks of arguments from other websites. Google is brilliant for finding out too.

I shame the sh!t out of them.

You already did, and the fact that your opponent did nothing with their 3rd round means they've already lost. Arguing in the final round is game over, I often don't even read it until after I've voted (sometimes I'll go back and change my vote, but I let that final round effect me as little as possible).
