Thanks for the debate, Spacetime, and thanks for delaying it by a week! I don't remember the exact wording of the topic we used last time, but it was something like this.

== Definitions ==

Most of them are obvious, but “immigration” means “immigration to the United States.”

== Rules ==

(1) No kritiks (including “pre-fiat” kritiks, like asking judges to vote someone down based on the language they used, and “post-fiat” kritiks, like moral skepticism).

(2) No new arguments in the final round (including new responses, except for new responses to the immediate previous round of your opponent's).

(3) BOP is shared. This rule isn’t super-important; it just means, in the unlikely event that the debate is literally a tie, you should vote a tie.

(4) Judges should vote based on what happened in the debate, not their personal views on this topic. Since this is a “winner selection” voting system, you should vote based on who won the debate (rather than voting based on the categories in the four-point system).
