  1. Although I may not agree with Marcus, I believe he won the debate because he had good points and facts plus he actually did his video unlike Adrian.

  2. Negative side mostly won because he had good arguments as well like when he said that if the drinking age lowered parents would be disappointed and would go on and protest about this.

  5. I feel that Marcus won the debate since his points had lots of synergy and really connected well with the topic. He should’ve elaborate more on alcohol and diseases. Overall the points could have been stronger if they were explained further.

  7. Marcus Parker won because his video showed how dangerous alcohol can be to your body. His point about how parents will negatively react shows that this law will would be very disliked.

  8. I believe Marcus Parker has taken over this debate. Because he shows what will happen to 18 year old if the drinking ages decrease with examples. And he shows what it can do to anyone young or 18 if they decrease the drinking age.

  9. I’m biased on this topic because it depends on how responsible you are and if you can hold your liquor, but i think Marcus won the debate because he gave some good examples and clear facts.

  13. They were both pretty good overall but I would have to say that Marcus won this debate because he seemed more prepared. Marcus had great facts o back him up and he knew what to say, and when to say it.
