Pro will be arguing in favor of abolishing the veto power of the permanent members of the UNSC on UN Resolutions
Con will be arguing for upholding the status quo, maintaining the veto power of the UNSC permanent members on UN Resolutions
BoP is shared, Pro must prove the abolition of veto power for the UNSC's permanent members while Con must prove that the veto power of the UNSC's permanent members ought to be upheld.

I thank my friend Corey for this debate, this is his first and hopefully not his last. It's my hope that he will learn a lot and continue debating, let's begin! Pro can begin his arguments immediately

Reason:

idek.

now this is a story all about how
my life got flipped turned upside down
and I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
I'll tell you how I become the prince of a town called Bel Air
in west Philadelphia born and raised
on the playground is where I spent most of my days
chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
and all shootin' some b ball outside of the school
when a couple of guys who were up to no good
started makin' trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mon scared
and said you're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air
I begged and pleaded with her day after day
but she packed my suitcase and sent me on my way
she give me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket
put my walkman on and said I might as well kick it
first class yo this is bad
drinkin' orange juice out of a champagne glass
is this what the people of Bel-Air live like
hmmm this might be all right
but wait I hear they're prissy? and all that
is this the type of place that they should send this cool cat
I don't think so I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for the prince of Bel-Air
well uh the plane landed and when I came out
there was a dude looked like a cop standin' there with my name out
I ain't tryin' to get arrested yet I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like lightening disapeared
I whistled for a cab and when it came near
the licensce plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
if anything I could say that this cab was rare
but I thought man forget it yo homes to Bel-Air
I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
and I yelled to the cabbie yo homes smell ya later
looked at my kingdom I was finally there
to sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-Air

Reason:

free vote- trying to get that bronze medal. RFD=counterpoising full forfeits argue against any advantage to either non-particpant, however much conduct leans con for Pro's wasteful instigation.
