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)

3.1: Resolve Jurisdiction Issues

Resolve jurisdiction issues to implement a gag order and secrecy order to protect the confidentiality of the IQA’s deliberations, each Member’s privacy, and their family’s privacy. These orders shall extend to protect ex-Members while the Electorate has still to vote on the ex-Member’s Initiative efforts for a minimum of two years and a maximum of five years. The orders shall not limit IQA and IQA Members’ access to published materials. The orders shall exclude Materials published by the IQA. Where applicable, the orders shall use the Federal Grand Jury system and Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure as minimum standards. Coordinate the penalties with those for tampering with the IQA, Members, or family.

Explanation of Resolve Jurisdiction Issues

Inter-governmental jurisdictional disputes might stall convocation or harm the formation of the IQA.
