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)

Straw Vote

Use of straw vote or poll shall be avoided in order that members cannot become emotionally committed to their initial straw vote and produces an information cascade. Moreover, votes shall be after all deliberation is complete or a motion to terminate discussion has passed, thereby assuring that the decision is taken simultaneously (i.e., at one time) rather than cascading sequentially over time.
