NI4d | Amendment | Act Edit

Section 1 Edit

Please note that this section specifically empowers initiatives at all levels of government.

Section 2 Edit

This is the bootstrap.

back to the Amendment

Section 3 Edit

Hmmmm...

The United States Electoral Trust (hereinafter "Electoral Trust") is hereby created to administer the procedures established by this Article and the Democracy Act.

  • A Board of Trustees and a Director shall govern the Electoral Trust.
  • The Board of Trustees shall be composed of one member elected by the citizens of each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Territories of the United States.

This is a show-stopper for me. How can we have an elected, that is a representative board, in charge of direct democracy? The short answer is we can't. So then what do we do to bootstrap the NI4d?

To be continued ...

Section 4 Edit

This seems upside down. Why not...

An initiative created under the authority of this Article that enacts, modifies or repeals any statute assumes the force of law when approved by more than half the registered voters of the relevant jurisdiction participating in an election conducted by the Electoral Trust.

  • An initiative created under the authority of this Article that modifies a constitution or charter assumes the force of law when it is approved by more than half the registered voters of the relevant jurisdiction in each of two successive elections conducted by the Electoral Trust.
  • If such a constitution or charter modification is approved in a first election, the second election shall occur no earlier than six months and no later than a year after the first election.

Section 5 Edit

How about :

Only citizens of the United States registered to vote in a given constituency may sponsor an initiative to be considered by that constituency under the authority of this Article.

The idea being that

  • only "natural persons" can be citizens, and
  • only those directly affected by an initiative, those who will live under it, may propose such.
