Update for Samford Tournament:
I have very little immigration topic knowledge, so you should at least introduce me to your acronyms of terms of art before you depend on them.
Debate is a game, it is a good game and should be a good game.
It is policy debate for a reason.
The ballot just decides who wins and loses.
Tech over truth.
Topicality debates are difficult, so when handled correctly, they are very rewarding and enjoyable, however, when handled incorrectly are messy and problematic to resolve. Since I'm new to this topic, don't assume I know what the core generics are, or what the heart of the topic is, you must tell me those things.
I think conditionality is great. I think the distinction between 3 or 4 conditional positions doesn't make intuitive sense, so the aff would probably have a better time going for 0 or 1, unless they can make good and specific brightlines.
Good DA/CP strategies are my favorite. Both sides should be making or answering arguments about how the disadvantage turns or accesses portions of the case, when this analysis is more contextual, it is typically much better. I'm generally lenient on more 'cheaty' counter-plans, but a good theory debate can convince me otherwise.
The affirmative gets to weigh the plan's implementation, you'll have a difficult time convincing me otherwise.
Read a plan.
