    Comments: (Nice job edifying Margaret)
    Andrew, you are a great debater. First, I love how you used that permutation against your opponent. I was convinced on that argument alone won the debate. Also I love your responsiveness to your opponent with line-by-line analysis and Margaret dropped a lot of your points.

    I liked your plan too. It was well developed and well formed.
    Margaret, very professional speaking, with a nice attitude, and you're a very nice debater.

    However, there were many flaws in your case.

    First, you say there was no war. However, there was a war called the Civil War.

    You even agreed in your opposition constructive that introducing ten trillion dollars into the economy would obviously benefit the economy.

    You drop Andrew's morality analysis on why only African Americans should be paid.

    You drop Andrew's response about leisure time being a good thing.

    Thirty years for ten trillion dollars seems like a long term investment to me. I don't get your argument when you say it will only make a short-term benefit.

    The decision is for the Proposition: Andrew Seo

    Reason for Decision:

    Andrew won this debate because he won the permutation and that is enough to win the debate.
