They should sell the idea on the premise that all conservatism is awful, and hence must be rooted out of all polite society, and therefore must be marginalized in the Supreme Court.

That's some rough question wording though. These guys need better instrument development.

When they lose majority anywhere they promote.. - packing the courts - promote removing electoral college taking minority power from non CA NY - allow prisoners to vote from prison - fight any tightening of election law to prevent fraud - try to lower voting age to grade school

Adding term limits in lieu of lifetime appointments for all federal seats should also be considered.

Nope nope nope. It'll just start an arms race with the GOP, and further politicize an already-too-politicized court.

The electoral college takes minority votes away from every state though. Voting red in a blue state gets you nothing. The opposite is also true. It is the greatest form of voter supression in America. If we truly believed in democracy it would be a popular vote.

I do agree with you on all the other points. Bernie's idea for prison votes is bad. They should be allowed to vote post sentence. Lowering the voting age is madness. I want voter ID.

I'd like to combine popular vote with Andrew Yang's idea. Which is that the govt gives every citizen 100$ to spend on any candidate. The money comes back to the govt and the people are the only ones who support and lift up the candidates they want. 20$ to Bernie 80$ to Pete etc

This would also take power from corporations who try to buy elections anyways. As they wouldn't be able to dump millions into a candidates campaign which turns into personal funds when the campaign or their term ends. It's corrupt.

1/ No, it takes some from a majority state not minority state. Based on pop. And we are a constitutional republic not a democracy. This doesn't even work out in states. Why do you think central valley (Fresno) in CA votes red? Its because they have no power and the blue cities

2/control everything. This screws the farmers, it screws the poor in Fresno/Madera/Stockton, has the highest poor in the nation, no one works on their issues. You're proposing applying that across the entire country. Why do you think politicians have to campaign in states like

3/ Maryland, Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania and push policy for not just CA/NY? It's because they need EC votes. Removing EC would mean politicians would spend the majority of their time making promises to CA/NY instead to win pop vote. EC works, but not many understand why
