90% of Debate Tourneys go down in flames. Regardless, I'm wondering if anyone is interested in one. The topic will be on political issues, and some of the Big Issues (E.g. Flat Tax vs Progressive Tax). I'd be interested in hosting one, so is anyone interested?

inb4 thsi thread gets no responses or is slightly bashed

I would have done one during the summer. It's a little too late. Unless it only has 4 participants or something.
in the blink of an eye you finally see the light

It could be an extension of opposite day. You argue against the position you normally hold.

Lwerd and Rob1Bilion had a debate on Capitalism.

We just hadn't had a debate tourney in a while *shrugs*. Check the disclaimer.

I am confused enough already, and I do not need opposite day to help.

This sounds interesting, but would have been better a bit before school is about to start...

I wonder what people think about doing parody debates?

As in you argue the side you don't agree with, but parody the people who would be making your arguments? You still need good argumentation, but it can be entertaining as well.
