Topic:

Should the US prioritize tax cuts over spending cuts?

You will be arguing against that topic.

If so, please contact richarddong. Profile is here:

http://www.debate.org...

^ He's been sort of pestering me with this debating topic and calling me a "cow" and a "loser" because I don't accept his challenge on that topic. E.g.

http://www.debate.org...

The reason why I don't accept this debate is not because I don't have the time but because I am only 15 years old, have no idea what the topic even means and don't even have the slightest interest in finding out.

The topic is essentially saying:

We have no money. How will we solve this? Get more money, or spend less money?

I considered accepting until you said the debate would be with some other guy instead of you.

That other guy hasn't debated yet, so taking him up on this debate is elo-suicide.
I'm just a cro magnon masquerading as one of you.

Just out of pure curiosity, why would you be interested in debating this topic against me? My ELO is pretty damn low, so that might be some ELO suicide.

It actually does, and I don't think it's uncommon. It was confirmed in the elo thread.

How do you guys know i'm not a noob anyways you can't judge a person until you have walked on their mocciacans.
This basically means you can't say that a guy is a noob if they made an account yesterady and has been debating like a pro for years.

The debates on this site are very different to those in real life (the speech ones for all I know). And most new people on this site can barely hold any substance with their first debate.

Yes, but only if your ELO score is 6 times that of your opponent and you are the contender. If you are the instigator, you cannot lose ELO points.

It should also be noted that only 4 people on DDO (and only 2 of them are active) are of the level that there are potential debates that can harm their ELO should they win, and for them it is only if they face someone that is already 0 - 10 or something of the like.

Wait a minute. This does not hold true for me. Oh well...
