    Hey, as I hope to finish my major in political science real soon, I have been doing some fun activities in my class. It's real simple and fun.

    I'll pose a question, and two people will debate. One person at a time, though.

    EX: Was the Iraq War worth it?

    Me: yes, .....
    Opponent: No, b/c ..
    Me: Your points are ..

    Easy?

    If you want, we can also get a voting board (Me (Republican), an independent, and a democrat) to elect a winner of the debate.

    You don't have to state your party or anything, we will vote on a pure non-partisan thought.

    Nope. The Iraq war wasn't worth it, because not only did we invade the wrong country to get the people responsible for 9/11, the last administration left the cost of the war off of the budget.

    It has cost us lives and lots of money, adding to the debt.

    Haha, I only used that as an example. Just let me know if you're interested in the idea.
