I've included most of the arguments and cases that I read during the Jan/Feb 2013 topic. All of the work done here is my own. If you're going to take cards, it would be cool if you would recut them yourself. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at samuel.a.mathews@gmail.com

Have fun with debate. If you're not enjoying it, you're not going to debate as well, and you're certainly not going to remember it as fondly. The activity became my passion because I loved framework and I liked the intellectual freedom of casing. In other words, make debate your own in whatever way you see fit. It'll become less important if you lose sight of the reason you got involved in the first place. Don't let competition get in the way of the people that matter to you. That's my advice, anyway.
