  3. Does anyone know if there's a good card or two supporting a PIC that calls a country by its politically correct name? Example: 1AC: "The United States federal government should reduce troop levels in Iraq to 49,387." vs. 1NC PIC: "The United States federal government should reduce troop levels in the Republic of Iraq to 49,387." It seems petty but it seems like most camp plan texts out there don't use the correct name for the country.
  4. T- "US" refers to 1980's NBC sitcom. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_%28TV_series%29
  5. economy downturn = hege decline Economic decline is a fundamental threat to global hegemony Fareed Zakaria, editor of Newsweek International, 2008, The Post-American World, p. 180 The fundamental point is that Britain was undone as a great global power not because of bad politics but because of bad economics. It had great global influence, but its economy was structurally weak. And it made matters worse by attempting ill- advised fixes—going off and on the gold standard, imposing imperial tariffs, running up huge war debts. After World War II, it adopted a socialist economic program, the Beveridge Plan, which nationalized and tightly regulated large parts of the economy. This may have been understandable as a reaction to the country's battered condition, but by the 1960s and 1970s it had condemned Britain to stagnation—until Margaret Thatcher helped turn the British economy around in the 1980s.
  6. do you guys know of any good heg good literature out there? preferably more recent?
  7. I'm down, caglenator@gmail.com
  8. on the topic of Heg Anyone know of some good Heg good literature on the topic? I don't really like reading the half-page Khalilzad or the *gasp* 2 page Kagan evidence. I'd rather have something substantial to use, and that way I could actually say I've read volumes of Heg literature. For example, does anyone know the books that those infamous Kagan/Thayer cards are from?
  9. is there an online results packet floating around out there? we never got our ballots so i'm kinda really interested.
  10. how hard is it to get accepted to Classic? because on their website it says there's only 24 slots for seniors.
  11. you guy are doing amazing finding stuff on how solving poverty increases heg, but what i was more interested in is the opposite. I was thinking more along the lines of, solving poverty/ increasing SS's destroys leadership/heg.
  12. mayhaps can you send it to caglenator@gmail.com or just post it here, either way I would appreciate it.
  13. So I've searched cross-x and google up and down for some kind of heg good link to the poverty topic, no luck. Does ANYONE have any good evidence on how social services / welfare crush U.S. Heg / Leadership/ Primacy / Unilateralism?
  14. I'm going to try to specify as much as humanly possible to make the plan text an entire page.
