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)

Gracefully Repealed

The Amendment pre-authorizes that the People must confirm this Amendment 10 and 20 years after the first Initiative. If the People choose repeal, Initiatives previously or concurrently passed shall remain as if they had originally been enacted by Congress and Congress may then change or overrule them as regular business of the Congress subject to Presidential approval.
