Alright, I'm working on cutting a new aff. I'm thinking of something along the lines of, 

Plan: The United States Federal government should create and substantially fund debate programs in primary and secondary schools and substantially fund preexisting debate programs.

Thinking of having advantages like critical thinking promoting democracy and agency, and maybe about how it helps the U.S. stay competitive since people who do debate are way more likely to graduate high school. Would you suggest different advantages? Also, is there any place where I could find inherency evidence? I can't really find any articles about how many people are doing debate, I just know from my personal experience that many programs are way underfunded or don't even exist. This is the first time I've written a case, so any feedback is appreciated.

This cross-ex is taking too long.

Kafka 25 (Franz, Novelist, Translated by David Wyllie, "The Trial", 1925) //Snowball

K. was informed by telephone that there would be a small hearing concerning his case the following Sunday. He was made aware that these cross examinations would follow one another regularly, perhaps not every week but quite frequently. On the one hand it was in everyone’s interest to bring proceedings quickly to their conclusion, but on the other hand every aspect of the examinations had to be carried out thoroughly without lasting too long because of the associated stress. For these reasons, it had been decided to hold a series of brief examinations following on one after another. Sunday had been chosen as the day for the hearings so that K. would not be disturbed in his professional work. It was assumed that he would be in agreement with this, but if he wished for another date then, as far as possible, he would be accommodated. Cross-examinations could even be held in the night, for instance, but K. would probably not be fresh enough at that time. Anyway, as long as K. made no objection, the hearing would be left on Sundays. It was a matter of course that he would have to appear without fail, there was probably no need to point this out to him. He would be given the number of the building where he was to present himself, which was in a street in a suburb well away from the city centre which K. had never been to before.

Edit*: Although I feel like finding a fed key warrant will be very difficult so you should find that before you cut your advantages to make sure the aff is a viable option

This sounds interesting, but is there a federal key warrant?

See this seems to be the biggest problem. I was thinking of just running generic cards about the federal government solving better from camp files, since I can't find anything specifically about the federal government in relation to debate.

I broke this aff at my state tournament, it's quite strategic if you know what you are doing with it. Unfortunately hit a shit panel in quarters and dropped as neg bc we for some reason ran a K that we were at least 10-0 with all season (bad decision ik) and they were confused the whole time.

Here I was thinking that I had an original idea...
But what evidence did you use for solvency with the federal government?

Not gonna lie, I think the fed key warrant in this is gonna relie on 1. Signaling and 2. Uniformity. I think that you should try and frame your fed key warrant is that the fed is key to a uniform approach, that ensures universal codes and design

There's no reason why 50 state fiat doesn't solve 100% of this, though

CP: The United States Federal government should create and substantially fund debate programs in primary and secondary schools and substantially fund preexisting debate programs. Except when those debate programs are a majority Public forum or LD.
