This side will certainly win, as that side will be brought down by semantics at every turn—those of us on this side can argue for this side and against that side, but those on that side must clarify every statement in favor of their side, so they do not appear to be arguing for this side.

That is a very good point. This side knows who we are voting for, but That side must always state which side "This" side (ex: right side/left side), in which they are referring to, actually is. Therefore, This side must win because That side will be too confused to put up an argument.

The right side is always right. So if the right side is right the right side will wi it.

Touché. It could be pointed out here, however, that the titles at the top have been changed, and both are now labeled as "This side". So a "that side" cannot actually win at this point, being as it has ceased to exist. Which has also rendered my original argument (and a lot of everybody else's) completely pointless, oh well.

This side will keep its cool- that's why they are blue. They will not resort to personal attacks and will always treat debate as a game.

This side is also more in touch with its peers- they refer to themselves as 'this' side, and everyone knows 'that' sounds condescending. 'This' always comes first when you use the expression 'this n' that.' That's because everyone knows it's better.

However you overlook the fact that if a = b and b = c then a = c. Its basic algebra. or in other words. Since that side = this side and this side = this side, then this side = that side. So no matter what both sides lose and both sides win. Its a never ending royal of arguments that all have the same outcome. Therefore, all your arguments towards both sides are meaningless since this side and this side already won and lost because they are this side.

Obviously this side will win as it has now achieved "underdog" status and will appeal to the contrariness of our nature that lie within us all.

See, here I am!.

Blue is clearly the colour of royalty and therefore the blue side will win, because they control all of the land peasants need on which to grow their vegetables. Red non-royal peasants are all too dumb to resist the domination by governments they must pay to survive.

Red is clearly the emotional and therefore necessarily irrational side.

Well, I'm really proud that I stuck to my guns and didn't switch sides (like I usually do) when this side was down. We are up and we be kicking butt!!! I guess those prolific and tenacious debaters on the other side got writer's cramp! HA!

Has anyone else noted that the blue side is the only side that can win. Obviously if blue is "this side" then arguing that "that side" will win implies that the blue side will win. Thus blue triumphs over orange.

Yet even this seems to be a gap in logic since the orange side is winning. Ah the tangled web we weave.

"This side" and "That side" are only algebraic aliases.

"This side" stands for the left side of the argument, and "That side" stands for the right side.

It's like "X" vs. "Y" (but since both are more similar than dissimilar, I think it's more correct to be "S" vs. "s")

Now, as I've noticed, there are a lot of people here making the mistake of not putting these names into the correct context. This side means something completely different than "This side", so what they say is meaningless to the argument... though it is fun to read.

"That side" is rocking "This side"'s world.

That side is colored-coded as red/orange. We all know this is the color of passion. That side will be much more deliberate and passionate and will ultimately win this debate.

Plus, when you get that side started they never stop. That's why they are the color of fire- because they get on fire and make solid argument after solid argument.

you see, this side has the aura of the KUNG FU PANDA! (notice his shorts are the same color-ish as our side) this side will do whatever it takes to be the winner of this debate. if that means assassinating you all we probably wont be there but the thought still is...

our side also has the feng shui that all super sides have...such as our warm apparently happy color that is the supreme reigning overlord of this side. (google: orange). so you see we have a supreme reigning overlord who tells us what we should do, without saying anything at all!!

HENCE our side is awesome!!

The minimum length for an argument is 50 characters. The purpose of this restriction is to cut down on the amount of dumb jokes, so we can keep the quality of debate and discourse as high as possible.

This side(red) will win, because i will sabotage the other side's arguments with obviously superficial and flawed arguments muhahahahahhhhh!.

Edit: Look! The infiltration worked!

I have even planted bold lettering to further the blue cause by helping people spot deliberately flawed or unsupported arguments. Including the peasant's very visible "we can't do anything because no-one else is doing anything" argument premised on the false notion that anti-establishment activists all know about all other anti-establishment activism despite their inadequate underfunded and persecuted communications networks and dispelled by Ghandi's advice to "become the change you want to see in the world".

I also threw in the emotions necessarily lead to irrationality argument, which ignores the power of emotion to motivate rationality.

Long live emotion, long live resistance to tyrants and long live red resistance in the face of blue oppression!

PS. I am not a communist, but a Georgist.

Consider also blue's first argument that "debate is always a game" and you should "never attack the person". Some positions are dangerous. People should most definitely have attacked Hitler for his murderous anti-Judaism BEFORE he started carrying out the massacres.

Blue's first argument demonstrates pathetic ignorance of the serious implications of debate. Debate creates understanding. Without understanding you'll always be a slave. It is NO game.

Typical decadent blue side argument. Dangerous. and "PolicyDebate" the individual SHOULD be attacked for the real world consequences of his dangerous beliefs.
