Here is how the debate will be set up

1 vs. 8
2 vs. 7
3 vs. 6
4 vs. 5

1, 2, 3, and 4 will be Capitalists, and 5, 6, 7, and 8 will be Socialists.

There will only be one round to this debate tournament UNLESS 2 Capitalists and 2 Socialists win. Otherwise, there will be four winners. And likewise, there will only be two rounds UNLESS 1 Capitalist and 1 Socialists win in the second round. I am only expecting one round for this debate.

Here is the sign-up sheet:

Capitalists:
1:
2:
3:
4:

Socialists:
5:
6:
7:
8:

This is on a first come first serve basis.

RULES: I have no set tournament rules. The two debaters get to set their own rules. I am just instigating this debate.

You might be better If you found progressive and liberals rather than pure socialists.

Danielle, Ore_ele, lasgagna, royalpalidin, reasoning, Ren, lovelife, 000ike, Johnicle, feverish , Freedo, Rockylightning, JohnJohnSHTOOKAH, and charleslb are the closest members to the left.

Well I know that. It is just fiscal rightists vs. fiscal leftists. I bet over 2/3rds of the debaters you named would identify themselves as either extreme fiscal leftists, socialists, or communists.

I'll take a socialist spot. I'm not one but I can still defend it.
