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)

Limited Article V Convention

The Constitution states that: “The Congress…on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds [34] of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments….” (U.S. Constitution) It shall be limited to the single issue of the Initiatives Amendment so that the Convention is deterred from extending its mandate. (Move to Amend and CRS Report 2014 Thomas H. Neale)
