Dog vs Cat Debate

Who's got the best grasp of today's issues?
  [vote for,

The rivalry between these two animals taken to the next level.

Both are seated at their podiums that are equipped with "translation" buttons. The issues are simplified into languages that cats or dogs can understand. The "question" is posed in the form of a treat being offered or not offered. If the animal hits the "Dispense treat" button, they've answered in the affirmative.

So a typical translation might be "Should the U.S. not impose trade sanctions on other countries that seek to undercut American manufacturers if those countries (through proxy donors) are financial contributors to your campaign?" The answer to this question is simplified as "Do you want a treat?" YES or NO?

Next question: "Should we have open borders that will assist your party by swelling the voter rolls in your favor and lower wages paid to unskilled workers making you and other upper class cats/dogs like you richer?" ("Do you want a treat?" YES or NO?)

Further, this idea could be modified for human debates in that there could be a sign above the politician showing a number and ringing a cash register sound when that politician extols the virtue of various plans they support.

"I completely support drug companies right to pay doctors to prescribe highly addictive opioids that have no success at all in treating long term pain issues!" (sign above debator) KA-CHING! "$175,000 CAMPAIGN DONATION!"

Debates are an important way to work out the problems society faces. This would make them more fun. Plus dogs and cats are cuter than humans and you could even dress them up in little suits and ties.

       The cats would boycott out of lack of interest.

       We like making little neckties for cats; we use only the very best quality hemp rope (actually, thick cord), and each necktie comes with a handcrafted oak gibbet with certificate of authenticity.
