    Use of evidence: 5 4.5
    Delivery skill: 5 5
    Coherence of arguments: 5 5
    Responsiveness to opponent: 5 5
    Identification of key points: 5 5.4
    Comments: I think this debate could have been simpler for you by just making arguments that there is no internal link between the proposed plan and cutting military spending. The other arguments in this debate you were clearly ahead on and could have made it even easier, but you end up pulling it out because your evidence is just quite superior. I think you do a good job of collapsing down to the military argument, and your scenarios are good, but you needed to have better evidence on these questions. I think your opponents superior evidence takes the best aspects of your argument into account and gives comparative analysis on the level of short-term vs. long-term gains which your evidence never gets to. As well, your evidence does not identify US posture in relation to US/China war in Senkakku's, which is also a problem when the opponent's does and is from a better source.

    If you had collapsed to just the military arguments and explained war scenarios more clearly to me then I would have simply given it to you based off of in-round articulation, but it was off the cuff at parts and was not enough to persuade me.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Kanupriya Pandey

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote for the proposition. As per the Brookings and Peterson Foundation evidence, short term crisis is outweighed by the long-term sustainability of military power projections. The evidence determines the largest proximate cause of military decline is debt-levels which the proposition clearly wins through the economic stability & investment benefits from tax cuts, housing vouchers, and education reforms. I think the evidence also rises to a level of making comparative analysis which the opposition's evidence cannot speak to. While the opposition has comparatively better in-round analysis, I find it to not be persuasive or to have a substantial impact so I am forced to do evidence comparison to determine the outcome. Both teams need better impact articulations. Great debate.
