Nice debate also, 2ac, that was interesting- it all worked out in the end, I had my doubts when i first saw it haha
Make it a panel?
I vote neg, on T, of course.
Mainly, the reason for this voting was the fact that, in the 2a, T was EXTREMELY mishandled. And, yes, there were "voters," per se, when the shell stated,"Thatâ€™s a voting issueâ€”." Thinking back on it, neg could have run fx, extra t, seeing as how P-text only mandated "NASAâ€™s space projects", which doesn't mandate being above the mesosphere. If the 2a would have put a card in stating that the police force is specifically for above the mesosphere projects, the T debate would have been over right there. Also, 1ar could have extedned the fact that lit checks abuse.
Had there have been an argument in the 2a that Hyperreality should be evaluated before T, i would have voted on that, since 2nr dropped that. But, since no point was ever made before the 2ar, I voted on t as a gateway issue.
Oh yeah, I disregarded some of the 2ar because much of that was new arguments that weren't present in 1ar or 2ac.
