    Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Monday that she fully supports abolishing the Electoral College and moving toward a national vote, the first time the 2020 presidential candidate has publicly taken the stance.

    “My view is that every vote matters,” the Massachusetts Democrat said to roaring applause at her CNN presidential town hall at Jackson State University in Mississippi. “And the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College.”

    Amen! I couldn't agree more! Elections should be about people - not acreage! BTW, the rest of the link is worth reading.

    So you believe we should accept the opinion of Elizabeth Warren, the woman who lied about her ancestry for decades?

    I agree. I always thought america was a democracy...but when Bush Jr got elected we the citizens of the world were shocked. And that's when we found about the electoral college. It really gives the power to the crazy minority and that's why we have trump and his crazies....the US should join the democratic countries and abolish the EC.

    Yes let's have Mexifornia elect Democratic Presidents for the next 50 years. That is the Liberal wet dream of abolishing the E.C.

    You are such a dick and always do this. "So you say" "So you think" "So what you mean" "So you believe"

    At least read the OP link before you attack.

    I wouldn't know. Ask them.

    "Everything bripat says has to be translated into Common Fucking Sense. "

    Should be a USMB requirement before posting on the boards. You know, like getting a license to prescribe meds for mental patients.
