== Introduction ==

The DDO Census Debate is a grand debate with a grand prize.

Once, halfway through every other month, a DDO Census Debate is held. The topic is the most popular, or controversial, topic of the month. Everyone who wants to partake can sign up, and discuss who will represent them in the debate.

Both parties may rework the Resolution to fit. For this reason the resolution given is only a guideline for the general topic.

== This Month's Topic ==

The USFG should accept Syrian/Muslim Refugees.

== The Debate ==

The Debate will be 4-5 rounds long, and will use Judge voting. Debaters may pick a Source/Arguments only voting system or a Choose Winner voting system. The grand prize is a $25 gift card for Walmart or Amazon (winner's pick).

Rules:
- No wars (source wars or definition wars, etc...)
- No kritiking.
- Sources may be in external links.
- Proper formatting must be used (and consistent).

All Pro and Con users may vote on who will represent their side. Comment here if you are willing to debate, and/or who you are voting for. The representative chosen may pick one person to be their adviser.

** I will not be running. Do not vote for me.

I would love to participate. Not sure what you mean when you said who will represent you.

I guess I am representing myself. I want to debate.

Whiteflame vs. Wylted -- rematching after 2 yrs

If it weren't for the 60 hour work weeks I would, but it will have to wait until after December. I already know his argument. Israel pulled America into this war and caused this situation, America should take responsibility for Israels mistakes and take in terrorists. If they're busy bombing America they won't have time to bomb the motherland.

It's literally been half a year since I've debated and the chance to win $25 sounds good to me.

Definitely Pro for this topic.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

I would like to participate in this debate if possible. This is actually a topic I was looking to do. I am willing to do both sides. Let me know if there are no other really serious takers, because this would be fun!

That you ban kritiking is entirely idiotic
