Just about any point can be opposed by the other side, so I don't know about that...
The main point that can be raised in favor of democracy is that it gives people the widest range of freedoms. A true democracy allows the people to have a say in ruling themselves and it allows people to enjoy more freedoms than any other sort of government.
In a true democracy, people get to vote for the people who rule them. This is not true of any other sort of government. In addition to this, people in a true democracy have more freedoms than others. They have things like freedom of speech and religion that are guaranteed to them -- not just given to them by their rulers.

Democracy is synonymous with equality. Everyone gets to vote (eventually, in our case). Everyone has the same legal rights along with citizenship. People are free to speak openly and criticize in a democracy (point out that this is exactly wat's happening in your debate), which in the end, improves government and society even further. Every elected official must eventually answer to the voters, so we don't get long periods of corruption or llegality from an elected official, we simply fire them. The courts are independent and can defend the Constitution and law without fear of reprisal, so we ramin closer to our legal principles this way. In dictatorships, courts are always controlled by the dictator. There is no true justice system.

In a democracy, the voice of every person of voting age can be heard--and voices have power. In a democracy, elected leaders enter into a contract with those who vote them into office; if that contract is broken, the people can sign a contract with someone else. In a democracy, there is a consitent order and process, and it's fairly immutable (unchageable); if enough people want a change, it is done openly and honestly. In a democracy, the individual matters.
