If you're willing to accept the debate, You must present a minimum of five resolutions from which I'll pick the one that is most appealing to me. I am willing to allow my opponent to choose the stance he or she takes on the resolution that I would choose from (when listing resolutions, Indicate "pro" or "con" next to your given resolution). The opposition may use a
definitions, Frameworks, Introductory statements, Or sources when presenting his / or her resolutions (only if necessary) After I've chosen the topic, The debate will begin.

1. I reserve the right to change any resolution that is abusive, Truistic or nonsensical. For example, A good example would be as follows: "America's economy would surge if we return to the gold standard" or "Progressive tax is unlawful by the constitution". You get the idea.
2. BoP is shared
3. Citations are mandatory when listing information / evidence and quotes. There is no specific format for listing your sources. If you wish, You may shorten your URLs by using Bitly or Tinyurl.
4. Please keep it civil
5. Please vote based on how well the arguments were presented, Not on your opinions or personal beliefs.
6. Forfeiture = automatic loss

==Debate Outline==

The American Education system is garbage.
Debate Round No. 1


Well, I am not going to explain the reason for my refusal to participate in this debate. The opponent clearly didn't read through the rules or simply decided to play troll. I should have made this debate impossible to accept.


No, Your rules weren't clear.

I'm up for a debate, I added you and sent you a message, As I'd rather not propose 5 topics as I'm not exactly sure of your views and defining the terms would be ambiguous leaving me at a disadvantage from the beginning.
