    Default Agree with or Agree to

    Good afternoo (in Spain):

    I have a question for you:

    How would you say ?

    ...agree with my proposal.

    or

    ...agree to my proposal.

    I have found these two possibilities on the Internet almost in the same frequency. Obviously, it is not the same result for it is not the same expression.

    To be a purist, which one would be the correct way?

    Thank you very much

    According to 'Practical English Usage' by Michael Swan, you could get what you need.

    a.agree with a person, opinion or policy
    I entirely agree with you.
    He left the firm because he didn't agree with their sales policy.

    b. agree about a subject of discussion
    We agree about most things.

    c. agree on a matter for decision
    Let's try to agree on a date.

    d. agree to a suggestion
    I'll agree to your suggestion if you lower the price.

    I'm not quite sure whether both are correct, though. I think both possible.

    On the victory side,
