What Happens When I Find Motivation Mid-Debate
Introducing: Guy #3 from the other team (he shall remain nameless); me
During Cross Examination:
Guy #3: Are you aware of how difficult it is to pass legislation mandating equal funding for public schools?
Me: I imagine it is quite difficult.
Guy #3: Quite, yes.
Later, during our closing argument (we went last, so my words were literally the last of the debate)
Guy #3: -a bunch of smarmy shit including "They are saying the same thing we are, so if you agree with them you have to vote for us."-
Me: -a bunch of rebuttals to their claims- They say what we propose is too hard, that their solution is easier. I say our children, our future as a nation, deserves better than 'that is too hard.'
