PF Nov 2013 Proposed Topics

From the National Forensics League -

The Public Forum TOPIC AREA for November is "Executive Branch Powers." The two resolutions from which students and advisors may choose are as follows:

  • Resolved: The United States government should stop conducting warrantless surveillance of its citizens' electronic activities.

  • Resolved: The benefits of domestic surveillance by the NSA outweigh the harms.

At first glance, this could be an interesting topic.  The second choice, in my opinion, may be too narrow since it specifies the NSA.  The NSA is not the only U.S. domestic intelligence gathering group is it?
