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)

IQA’s Authority to Propose or Change Initiatives

The IQA shall not propose or change Initiatives except:

  1. The IQA may propose Direct Initiatives to obtain the Electorate’s approval for changes to the IQA’s Part 1: IQA Charter Rules and to deal with IQA administrative issues.
  2. After Citizens’ feedback, expert advice and deliberation, the IQA may suggest corrections, improvements and consolidations of any part of a Proposed Initiative(s) to the original authors, who may then re-propose their Initiative. The IQA may pay the publication cost of such re-proposal.
  3. If the proposed initiative supply is inadequate, the IQA may advertise suggestions on their web site for potential initiative topics. The IQA may also advertise suggestions for its own administrative changes.

The IQA shall not bypass the normal procedures of publication for any Proposed or Changed Initiative.
