    Dual Loyalty Aff

    "Technically, the US allows for dual citizenship. And yet, we also require immigrants to take a loyalty oath of exclusivity. Getting rid of that condition on immigration seems like a solid squirrel case that's readable in front of judges of all types, to me. For offense, look to criticisms of the notion of "dual loyalty", which is a phrase often used by the xenophobic, and claim the loyalty oath perpetuates such notions. If you want to get even more specific, you could remove a specific sentence from the loyalty oath and leave the rest of it." Why is this plan necessary in the context of the U.S. government? Why is the argument of xenophobia important to the U.S.? How do you know that removing the oath will solve anything? Does the oath bind them by law, or can they ignore it anyways? If it does bind them, what if many people are already ignoring it? Technically: U.S. law does not mention dual nationality or require a person to choose one nationality or another. A U.S. citizen may naturalize in a foreign state without any risk to his or her U.S. citizenship. Dual nationals owe allegiance to both the United States and the foreign country. They are required to obey the laws of both countries, and either country has the right to enforce its laws. Can you make a strong enough case that the oath trumps what the U.S. clearly stipulates? I would love to use this plan, but I'm not sure how.

    Planless Aff?

    So, I compete in a primarily stock/comms area and am interested in running a K-Aff. I found one that I like but it doesn't have a plan. I'm sure this is a novice question but how would I go about running a case without a plan? Also, how do I defend T? How does the USFG substantially reduce anything?

    Taking down a K Aff

    Hi all, As a 2N, it is so frustrating going against K affs. Obviously, there isn't one solid universal negative strategy vs. a K aff but I was hoping somebody could explain was is and what isn't a good idea. Last time (vs. an Identity K aff) we ran framework and topicality and on case and lost... I've been looking into the Faun K and that looks interesting but I don't know if I'm ready for such an abstract argument. Thanks(:

    LOST affirmative

    I was looking at the LOST affirmatives put out from camps and I was wondering if it would be a viable option to run this year. I think there is pretty solid advantage ground and it seems topical. Thoughts and opinions on it?

    How to construct an Aff

    Hi, I'm quite new to debate. I have only competed at one tournament at our local league, but after winning the Novice division with my partner and getting 2nd place speaker, our coach thought it would be right to move us up to JV for this upcoming tournament (which is next friday). We got two new affs that we could run (immigration & nsa prism) and a lot of off case (sec K, T, econ DA, terror DA, aerospace DA, nat. internet DA, guest worker visa DA, data erasure CP, whistleblower CP & dream act CP) but after talking a little bit, we decided to stick with our Drones Aff. However, we thought that it would make it so much easier for us to turn the Terror DA & the Sec K if we restructure our Aff in a way that would make our 1AC as a stance against security. The rules for JV in our league is that we could change tags and rearrange the order and change the contentions and all that, but we can't add new evidence. My problem is that I don't know how to arrange it in a way that it's not messy & all over the place. Attached below is a really really rough draft of our aff and I would appreciate any advice on how to make it more organized/ make the tags stronger or even what cards to just downright get rid off. Thank you so much!! Link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-F0b-LnUab4U5sjg1tv9rz7z0vCr-5ewdqt2F9yTI-g/edit?usp=docslist_api

    How might I write a K aff?

    Greetings! For my state's regional debate tournament, I plan on breaking a new AFF. This time - however, I plan on making it a kritikal version following off of the lines of anti-blackness, but more of a basis on the Asian body and how it elates to double-thinking and double consciousness... (maybe some "social death" or similar impact in there too) but how exactly do I break an aff that is critical? I understand reading will be a HUGE part of this process.
