During a town hall event for CNN, far left Democrat Elizabeth Warren called for the abolishment of the Electoral College.
Democrats can’t stand the fact that all the states have a say in our presidential elections. They want heavily populated blue states like New York and California to decide everything.
The Washington Times reports:
Elizabeth Warren calls for abolishing electoral college: ‘My view is that every vote matters’
Sen. Elizabeth Warren called Monday evening for abolishing the method by which America has elected its presidents for 230 years.
In a town-hall meeting broadcast on CNN, Ms. Warren was asked about how she would expand voting, and told the Jackson, Mississippi, audience that presidential candidates don’t campaign in the conservative state “or in California or Massachusetts,” her home state, because they are not battleground states.
“My view is that every vote matters,” she said, and the U.S. can achieve that in presidential elections only if “we can have national voting.”
“That means getting rid of the Electoral College,” she said.
Her speech was interrupted by thunderous cheers and applause.
“Everybody ought to come here and ask for your vote,” she told the Mississippi crowd.

Warren also pushed reparations for slavery.
Reparations are on the table
The prospect of paying reparations to the descendants of slaves has slowly emerged as a potentially divisive flashpoint in the Democratic primary. Candidates have struggled with how to address the question, which has for so long resided on the fringes of presidential politics.
Warren, who has made proposals to close the racial wealth gap a staple of her stump speech, was asked about it early on in the night and said she would back congressional legislation that, according to its mandate, would form a panel “to examine slavery and discrimination in the colonies and the United States from 1619 to the present and recommend appropriate remedies.”
“I believe it’s time to start the national, full-blown conversation about reparations,” Warren said. “That means I support the bill in the House to appoint a congressional panel of experts, of people who are studying this, who talk about different ways we may be able to do it, and to make a report back to Congress so that we can as a nation do what’s right and begin to heal.”
That bill is commonly referred to as H.R. 40, which was first introduced by former Michigan Rep. John Conyers three decades ago. Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee re-introduced it after Conyers left Congress.
She is just the worst. How does anyone take her seriously?
