Reason:

Neither side made a convincing argument.

Pro R1- Huey was for the common folk(unsubstantiated).

Con R1-states his confusion with the resolution.

Pro R2- FDR was good for America, Huey would've done more

Con R2- Forfeiture, CONDUCT to Pro as a result.

Pro R3-Nothing worth noting.

Con R3- America did fine without Huey.

Pro/Con R4- No noteworthy points.

Neither side went deep into why Huey was or wasn't needed, both sides best arguments would be okay if they gave me a sufficient evidence to back up their claims, e.g break down why Huey would've done more than FDR, or why/how he would make the polices irreversible.
It's only the forfeiture that implores me to vote Pro.
