Section 1 Edit
Please note that this section specifically empowers initiatives at all levels of government.
Section 2 Edit
This is the bootstrap.
Section 3 Edit
The United States Electoral Trust (hereinafter "Electoral Trust") is hereby created to administer the procedures established by this Article and the Democracy Act.

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.

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.
