I'm sort of feeling either a 2-on-2 or 3-on-3 debate, and as it turns out, I have about a week and a half off starting Wednesday -- so this is perfect timing!

Topic is flexible, but I think something "in" at the moment would be the most interesting. For instance, I'd love to find three ardent Trump supporters so can I add to the tally in my signature.

(YYW, Skep, and thett -- I'm calling the three of you out!)

Any takers?

Possible topics, with my preferred positions

Donald Trump should be the next president of the United States (CON)

Free trade is, on balance, preferable to protectionism (PRO)

Liberalization of immigration policy is preferable to protectionism (PRO)

I'll probably think of a few more, but this is a good start.

I didn't really think about that, to be honest. I'd prefer Trump versus the world, rather than having to defend any particular candidate.

I mean, at this rate, I'd argue for a ham sandwich presidency, lollol.

Okay, lol, nvm then. I would argue for him over hillary, but that's about it. I would have personally preferred to see Michael Bloomberg run.

Hillary's my girl, but... she's, admittedly, really hard to defend, lol. I probably would have preferred Bloomberg tbh.

I worded it slightly better yesterday:

I'd vote for a ham sandwich -- WITH CHEESE -- over Trump, and I'm allergic to cheese.

Topic is flexible, but I think something "in" at the moment would be the most interesting. For instance, I'd love to find three ardent Trump supporters so can I add to the tally in my signature.

(YYW, Skep, and thett -- I'm calling the three of you out!)

Any takers?

I'll team up with YYW or Thett to debate affirmative for Trump being the next US pres. , since both were former HS debaters, as am I.

If you can get one or both of them onboard, I'd be down.
