Resolved: The benefits of domestic surveillance by the NSA outweigh the harms.
So I am a freshman in high school, about to begin debating this topic. I'm one of those guys who does weird things to win.
Is it a good idea to make a sheet full of common points I'd be expecting to here and then writing what to say when I refute it?
Example: The pro team says the NSA prevents terrorism as one of there points, so I look at my sheet and find where I wrote that as a common point, and then across from it is what I am going to read when I hear that.
Good? Give me tips please.

Hi.. I am also a freshman and have my first debate next week. What I was going to do was I have a few friends that ALWAYS win the tournaments, and they offered to debate with us, so I could get those common points. I was going to get a few of those common points, from each side, and then do research on points that would contradict these points. Write now I am writing my speeches, and I think it's a good idea to find those common points, and find points that contradict those.
