  1. see if you can find THIS evidence:


    -US funds Alternative Energy programs, scientists create a breakthrough

    -Alt Energy use goes up, oil demand goes down

    -Oil prices drop, Oil Producing nations like Iran loose revenue

    -Iran goes into a depression, radical leaders convince population is it US's fault, US gets nuked.

  2. Well first thing you can say is that you can't fiat spending because the spending is something that would happen as a result of the plan.


    I know that you can't fiat spending, and I told them that they would still need the money from somewhere, but they replied that the cost was irrelevent did I have any other questions.


    What would I do in a situation where they basically refuse to answer the question?

  4. This weekend I was faced countering the following argument in a regional debate tourney:


    "The US Gov't should increase public health assistance to SSA by planting 400 million cacti there."


    Apparently these cacti only grow in the Southwestern US, and a select number of universities in the area know how to grow them. Thier 'juices' can be used to purify water 3x faster than 'normal methods,' and they can also be used to eat and to repell insects. [solves: water, food, malaria]


    My opponents would not discuss the cost of the plan, declaring a Fiat and arguring that the cost was thus irrelevent.


    I tried running a "Japan Does the Plan" CP, but the opponents claimed that Japan did not have the experties or the resources.


    How would I better counter the argument in the future to win the debate?
