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: Structure of Solution

Nationwide Citizens’ the only power structure that provides a solution to these problems. History has proved that Congress cannot protect the people against congressional excesses and deficiencies. Constitutional separation of powers bars such power from the President, Judiciary, or States. Appointed or elected reform boards cannot have this power. Constitutionally, this leaves only the people to protect against congressional excesses. However, congressional excesses have largely nullified the people’s federal voting power. That leaves only nationwide Citizens’ Initiatives. And only the States, using their second method of calling a limited article V constitutional amendment, then authorizing nationwide Citizens initiatives can legally and constitutionally resolve the problem.
