La Costa Canyon '16
UCSB '20 (Philosophy and communications)
I debated in LD for 4 years at La Costa Canyon High School (aka Leucadia Independent)


Overview
Debate in the style you feel most comfortable, however I prefer philosophy oriented rounds. I will vote for any argument that you can fully impact back to a ballot. Every round I will vote using the same mechanism. I will determine what the most viable framework is and vote for whoever has more offense under that framework. That framework could be traditional ethical phil, role of the ballot, theory voter, etc.
Please understand how important comparative analysis/weighing is in the large majority of debates.

K
Probably 90% of my 1NCs sophomore through senior year consisted of me reading a single K and answering case so I'm sympathetic and comfortable with the strategy. Give a good overview in the 2NR so I know what the argument is before I vote on it. Please also contextualize links well.

Phil
Despite how often I read the K, I'm a really big fan of traditional ethical philosophy and I've read a fair amount of it. That means I'll usually be able to follow along. Just like with the K, if you're reading dense phil explain it so I know what I'm voting for.

Theory/T
I've being seeing a lot of shells that are missing crucial internal links. A shell should include an interp, a violation, stardards (each one with 2 internal links: one between the interp and the standard and one between the standard and a voter), and a voter (including at least 2 components: a reason that fairness or education is important and drop the arg or drop the debater). I'll be a lot more persuaded to vote on theory if your shell includes weighing and comparative analysis between your interp and what debate looks like without it/your opponent's counter-interp. I'm indifferent to whether you use theory as a strategic instrument.
