An Initiative may be in the form of an Advisory Initiative to test whether people either support or oppose a potential action or issue and to find common ground in complex ethical and political issues. No person or organization is bound by the result of an Advisory Initiative. Advisory Initiatives should be used sparingly and not as an alternative to a poll, but should be considered before any controversial proposed constitutional Amendment.
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)
