Initiatives v Oligarchy

Our Founders' Warning: “Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.” (Thomas Jefferson)

2.1: Propose Initiatives

U.S. citizen groups and organizations may create and propose Initiatives, but shall not abuse this right. All citizens and organizations preparing, signing, or sponsoring a proposed Initiative shall declare any and all benefits they may receive by proposing and/or by passage of the Initiative. They shall communicate a Proposed Initiative to the Initiatives Qualifying Assembly by its publication. Initiative signers must have simple proof of identity at least equivalent to Federal Election voters.

Explanation of Propose Initiatives

The Amendment taps the creativity of the People and their organizations to propose Initiatives. To keep order, the Initiatives Qualifying Assembly has the power to control abuse. It takes advantage of the Federal Election for concurrent use to minimize cost and maximize convenience for the voters.
