“Kicking” a Disadvantage
Sometimes during a debate you will want to “kick” – not go for – one of your disadvantages. To do this, you need to effectively “kick” it.
It is very important that your properly kick a disadvantage. If you do not, the affirmative team may easily extend a turn.
For example, imagine that you present that initial spending disadvantage that I have been discussing and that the affirmative responds with the following five arguments:
1. No link – we don’t spend money
2. Turn – we save money
3. Non-unique – the government will spend more money in the future . . .
