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)


Laches… is an “unreasonable delay pursuing a right or claim… in a way that prejudices the [opposing] party”… The person invoking laches is asserting that an opposing party has “slept on its rights,” …Put another way, failure to assert one’s rights in a timely manner can result in a claim being barred by laches.” (Courtesy © Wikipedia)
