I have opposed Elizabeth Warren as a viable candidate for President (at least for me) in several other threads and I wanted to make it clear what positions she holds that are deal-breakers for me. The sources I used for her positions on the issues are from HERE which is a non-partisan website.

Supports public abortion funding. (Oct 2012)
Supports churches providing birth control. (Oct 2012)
Opposes a constitutional BBA. (Oct 2012)
Opposes the outright legalization of marijuana. (Apr 2012)
Lead the world in using green technology. (Sep 2011)
Supports gun control. (Aug 2011)
Extend the federal assault weapons ban. (Jul 2012)
Supports restricting the Second Amendment. (Oct 2012)
Voted YES on banning high-capacity magazines of over 10 bullets. (Apr 2013)
Supports the President's Affordable Care Act. (Mar 2012)
Opposes repealing ObamaCare. (Oct 2012)
Not a good idea to strip terrorists of citizenship. (Oct 2011)
Strongly supports the DREAM Act. (Oct 2012)
Support the DREAM Act: Let kids stay. (Jun 2012)
Opposes "Secure Communities" immigration enforcement program. (Dec 2011)
Say the word long and loud: "Union!". (Apr 2014)
Social Contract: Americans don't become wealthy in isolation. (Sep 2011)
Make it easier for workers who want to organize. (Sep 2011)
Raise the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour by 2016. (Jan 2014)
I know I'm 1/32 Cherokee because my mother told me so. (May 2012)
Fauxcahontas: Accused of using Indian heritage for gain. (Apr 2014)
Created intellectual foundation for Occupy Wall Street. (Oct 2011)
Rated 0% by the AU, indicating support of separation of church & state. (Jan 2013)
Opposes investing part of your payroll tax. (Oct 2012)
Supports increasing tax rates. (Oct 2012)
Voted YES on authorizing states to collect Internet sales taxes. (May 2013)

Political Philosophy: Elizabeth Warren is a Hard-Core Liberal (per OnTheIssues.org)

My biggest deal-breaker? I will NEVER vote for a gun-control candidate in any way, shape or form. This is a Constitutional, 2nd amendment right and shall not be infringed. Other problems I have with her that are big are on Obamacare, Immigration and a binding, Constitutional 'Balanced Budget Amendment' (BBA).

I do understand her appeal to some because she does have several good ideas and supports suppression of NSA domestic spying, but she has too many red flags for me to consider her for my vote in 2016.

You're entitled to your deal-breakers. But yours aren't mine. If she runs, she'll probably get my vote.

You should have held back until 2020. She isn't running this time. When she does not only will I vote for her, I'll campaign for her.

She is part Native American. She also never used it to get loans or jobs.

Maybe it's a "The lady doth protest too much, methinks" kinda thing.

According to you she is at least part native american.
The real story isn't quite that clear.

From your link:

In other words, without wading too deeply into ongoing debates within the Native American community, Warren could make a fairly a legitimate claim to the title.

See that?
After being told to discount what the actual Native American community has to say about it....
We are told that Warren 'could' make a fairly legitimate claim.
Interesting wording.
The Delaware and Cherokee deny her claims.
Harvard and the EEOC say that she didn't meet the criteria of her claims.

I will be spending my time during the election season writing scathing articles on every DNC and GOP candidate until one can illustrate to me that they do follow the Constitution, the Bill of Rights.

Warren will be easy to write against. I'll just dig up old Palin articles and switch names. But I'll probably be accused of sexism then. lol.

I don't know who I'm going to vote for yet.

But I do know who I WON'T be voting for or endorsing.

If the plan is for her to be Prez, she will be. Your vote will do nothing.

I can't believe how many people still believe their voice is heard.

I'd vote for her regardless of what she stands for that I disagree with for one reason. Like Paul Perot, gravel and kuccinich, she simply isn't BOUGHT! Every other candidate is corporate/big banking/MIC stooge through and through, with not a single bone of support for real citizens. And Hillary will walk us right into ww3.

I know, right? It's not like she's using it as something to stand on and wave around. It's a non-issue for me. It would be one thing if she was running around talking about "her people" and whatnot.

People that elect proven liars to be the POTUS don't care.
