Evidence philosophy:


Rounds judged: 0
Approach: Equal
I believe that Value is a huge issue in a good LD debate, and that the winning Value and Criterion should compliment each other and should always outweigh the opposite opponent. Debate is a big part of Speech so the communication skills are important as well. In order to win the round in my eyes, the debate and the issues must be resolved by one and always tie into the Resolution. I have always been one for a little clash within the debate. Clash is, and has always been interesting for the debaters as well as the judge.
