Thread: PF Debates: Will You Participate?

  1. Default

    Sounds kinda cool in theory, but in reality it won't work. There's no way in hell someone like TFM, Tea, etc are going to 'rule' against a liberal debator. And I'm sure conservative judges will lean towards conservative debators.

    Of course you are assuming it won't be both tea and tfm in the hot seat, with a con as judge.

    The Liberal position is (and correct me if I’m wrong ) they can do SO many great things after robbing the bank, that the theft is ok, permitted and acceptable. I reject that logic out-of-hand. If anyone wants to debate original intent of the Constitution I would be glad to. The Left's position (that the Constitution describes an unlimited federal government capable of doing ANYTHING) if faulty, historically inaccurate, and wholly illegitimate since their wealth distribution and social engineering schemes were only allowed after Democrat FDR threatened the Supreme Court so they would stop ruling his "New Deal" unconstitutional in 1937.

    What would the debate be about, whether the Supreme Law of the Land (Constitution) is indeed still the Supreme Law of the Land? Should we debate whether destroying the founding principles (that sought to guarantee individual liberty, and private property rights) is a Martha Stewart type “Good Thing…”? Should we debate if we should adopt Socialism as an economic and political system (it MUST be both as there can be no unalienable liberty in a socialist economy)? Can't make such a change as any wealth distribution destroys individual liberty; an unalienable right... Oh, perhaps you want to debate if rights are unalienable, and bestowed apron their creation by God. See, I don't get it, please explain...

    Have some libtards been crying about getting pick on in some of these threads?
    ask yourself one simple question, what the hell is happening to the forum? why
    are we even talking about such a ploy?

    Conservative Judges or Liberal Judges, it's does not matter both are a bad idea to
    either side. And what the hell is the real goal here? I might leave this forum if this goes
    through, this is not what I came here for, to be Judged, nor do I want it going on
    in a public forum to anyone.

    You can't stack the cards right for either side. is this now what this forum is about?
    Just let me know so I can leave.

    So far it is running two to one against participation. A vote as lopsided as that should effectively kill the idea unless the person first proposing it is arrogant enough to go against the will of the majority of posters.

    Political Forum has been a discussion site, not a contest site and it should stay that way. As soon as you set up an official adversarial condition with an artificial arena in which one person is declared the winner and the other the loser you change the dynamics of the site. Having one poster, or even a small group of posters officially judge the worth of another poster is a dangerous precident.

    I consider myself a good poster and a good debater and honestly feel I would probably win the majority of debates in which I participated but there is no way I will participate in an exercise I feel is counterproductive to the wellbeing of Political Forum.

    it look like a conservative moderator should endorse this with venom to gain popularity on the other side for the poll

    Actually that is not even true. For any thread their might be fifteen people who actually post, and hundreds if not thousands of people who actually view; the silent majority. I say post as much factual information as possible to prove your point. Let them, the silent majority who actually control this country process the information. No one will ever change the mind of a poster from the “other side.” The battleground is to engage the onlookers....follow?
