  1. i didn't run it at camp. and every round where we've gone for it in the 2NR, me and nick have picked up. So I'd say we have enough leg to stand on.
  2. yeah, but this thread is about nuclear leading to extinction. not internals to nuclear war. um, except for the presence of post-colonialist bonds. (i.e. england and south africa, germany and angola). and the best possible explanation for outside powers being drawn in is resources, which isn't even in the deutsch card.
  3. nick, my partner, first this isn't a terminal impact for nuclear war. it's just an internal from african instability to nukes. also, i'd like to see if you could find any decent warrants in the card. i know we read this card in rounds, but still... it's not good.
  4. I personally think that all of the theoretical objections to politics disads are quite terrible. It's like, A. Kills fiat ground – now we’re debating how the plan passes instead of whether or not it should. B. Unpredictable Lit – there’s a million different authors that print shitty politics evidence. C. Unpredictable scenarios – there are so many different bills and orders in the USFG, we don’t know them all. D. Perm: Do plan and legislative action specified by the neg’s uniqueness evidence. E. It’s artificial – that’s bad because it promotes any DA that has a vague link to the aff. F. This is all a voter for fairness.
  5. Frey says that even if the public says no, policy makers will become aware of the subject at hand and implement favorable planks of the policy. The way our government currently operates is in a representative form, which would be normal means. By altering policy making to a directly democratic form, it's not normal means anymore. And it definitely negates the resolution enough. First of all it violates "Resolved" because action is not immediate. Secondly, it can't fully be considered "USFG" because a referendum works outside of the bounds of our current government system. (national referendums are unconstitutional) Kunal, most of the answers you subscribed apply to almost every CP anyway. As for you solvency deficit and perm arguments, cross apply my answers from above.
  6. Except for the fact that I'm not joking. If you're going to make a perm, Severance bad. NB's link to agency, CP competes. If you're going to claim solvency deficit, We have a shit load of ev that says the US public loves your foreign aid programs. They will vote yes. Even if they say no, our Frey in '03 evidence indicates the desirable parts of the plan will be influenced and implemented. Go ahead and straight turn the NB's. Politics/Direct Democracy debates are fun.
  7. Um... that was NMD. That politics scenario is so 2005. BMD is the new shit.
  8. In response to GlassCase: Specifically, a spending DA that works off perception links. Because if the bill doesn't go through Congress, it won't be perceived as a loss in fiscal discipline. In response to Sean and his perm: First, the perm would be severing out of the immediacy of the plan. Secondly, the CP still competes via NB's.
  9. The best CP ever is Referendums. It's basically Consult the US public. If you ever need CP solvency, you just pull out your politics links file and find "Plan popular - public" evidence. Because this means public will say yes, CP solves. Also, there are some sweet NB's. Direct Democracy, Spending, Politics
  10. not to mention that the india deal solves proliferation in the Kashmir
  11. k, so this was an aff round at a national circuit tourney. 2NC was 8 minutes of fem. so i was like, "i ain't gonna do no woman debate." so my 1AR is all condo bad. 2NR totally undercovers. (as in spends 1.5 minutes on condo, then for some reason spends 3.5 on a DA???) so i write out an o/v for my partner and i'm like, "don't fuck up" well we drop. judge is like "yeah, going into the 2AR, i was 90% sure that the aff was going to win. well, i was wrong."
  12. yeah, but someone jacked my copy. and i couldn't find the fourth week files online, either.
  13. I desperately need files on the following: Space Militarization Aff (From last year) Direct Democracy DA Deleuze and Guattari K I have a lot of files on me, I'm willing to get ripped off for these files. You don't need all three, if you could just trade me some for one of them that'd be great. Thanks! Trevor Aufderheide Edina High School '10
