    Category Sakasai Sora Zachary Tinn
    Use of evidence: 3.5 0
    Delivery skill: 3 4
    Coherence of arguments: 4.5 4
    Responsiveness to opponent: 3 3
    Identification of key points: 3 3
    Comments: Nice job, could have done a better job addressing all of Opp's points (civil war) You questioned where he got his evidence from yet used DAILY MAIL!!!!! plus you didnt have any evidence to back up your counter plan

    The decision is for the Proposition: Sakasai Sora

    Reason for Decision:

    Prop was the only side that provided quantifiable numbers to vote on, and I was disgusted with Opp's attempt to overstate his authors credibility, when he cited daily mail and had nothing to support his counter plan, easy decision.
