    Comments: My comments will be posted in the video, but here are some key notes:

    1) Always address the attacks on your case before you attack your opponent's.

    2) Use sources and quotes to help solidify and clarify your arguments.

    3) Don't allude to nazism.
    My comments will be posted in the video, but here are some key notes:

    1) I knocked down your coherency because I didn't follow the links in your politics disad.

    2) I'd like to seem more quotes or evidence from sources.

    3) I like your structure. It helped make up for any misunderstandings I may have had.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Donald Warden

    Reason for Decision:

    I voted off of the dropped arguments, since the arguments that stayed in the round were either about nazism or misunderstood.

    The biggest argument that I voted off of was the contention one subpoint B on the negative flow. This had the greatest weight in my eyes because Donald showed a logical link to anarchy, despite my intuitive desire to reject his observations that allowed him to make the argument. I do think that any response would have been a good response, because I wanted to see a larger framework debate on the observations, which begged for questioning.

    However, I had to vote for the opposition, especially due to the dropped case. For further explanation, watch the posted video.
