The Great Debate: Occupy Wall Street Vs. The Tea Party

Billed as the “intellectual throw-down of the decade,” two Hoboken debaters will state their cases starting at 8pm tonight.

The debaters:

  • Ben Case – is an Occupy Wall Street opinion leader as well as a member of the Organization for a Free Society. Born and raised in Hoboken, he now lives in Jersey City.
  • Josh Einstein – is a conservative and self-described Tea Partier. He writes for SaveJersey.com and has lived in Hoboken for 6 years.

Which side are you on?

    Ahh!!! I have so many questions about this!! What’s the debate format? Who (if anyone) is moderating/keeping score? Who put this together? Are there any other former debate team members who think this is an awesome idea?!?!
