    Comments: A lot of the claims being made in the first speech about how effective the UN is require some citations

    I think you need to attack the mutual exclusivity of these arguments. Why can't we just invest money and time and effort on DOING BOTH?

    Your speed is fine, but you're slurring a bit. work on being a little crisper/more articulate. That will help your comprehensibility substantially.

    Your argument doesn't clash very much--your arguments don't provide a very strong case for why the proposition is a bad idea, it's just maybe not as important as other things.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Eseosa Olumhense

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote for the proposition because I don't think the opposition proves that the proposition is a bad idea...just maybe not the most optimal idea. I also think that the opposition mishandles the US-centrism argument and it serves as an important source of persuasive offense for the proposition side.

    Good Debate. I had fun watching yall.
