 You're a little hard to understand but it's alright. I definitely don't have the best voice/mic either lmao. Not that it's a bad thing but you definitely don't sound like I imagine you would.

 @WVProgressive you got Discord?

Also it's been a while since I've used Discord so I don't really know 100% how it works.

It isn't that hard to figure out

The topics or the specific questions? Also we may have to delay the thing to give @WVProgressive more than a day to come up with questions. We should plan it after he does.

Agreed. Also what will the debate be on anyway?

I would assume multiple topics such as taxes, healthcare, gun control, etc. maybe. Though we likely have similar positions on many so arguing some of them would be kind of redundant.

Also I work and am generally pretty busy most days so for the debate I would say it should be at most about an hour.

Alright bois I'll get started today. I'll come up with like, at least eight questions, give each of you one minute to describe your stance on it, and then three minutes to debate it. (Give or take the time it takes to text a response) That gives around 5 minutes per question (at least, I'll allow the discussion to reasonably go on longer than one or three minutes if it's constructive). So 5 minutes per question (at least) x 8 questions = gives at least 40 minutes of discussion. Sound good?

Off the top of my head, here are what I can think of (provided you have different views on them)

1. Gun control
2. Marijuana
3. Abortion
4. The Wall
5. Healthcare
6. North Korea
7. Trump Administration
8. Economy

If you want I can form it like a Presidential debate, or a formal argumentative debate.

If it's "Trump Administration," I have no interest in following it. I really wish, right now, I could put Trump, and all mention of him, on ignore in RL like he was just some troll on an Internet forum. He's become a hackneyed joke...

I am not "the Crown." I have no desire whatsoever to be a monarch - either a figurehead or absolute one!
