PETITION FOR A PEOPLE'S BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT

This petition seeks to strengthen, upgrade and protect the rights and freedoms of the people's/citizen's by establishing a mechanism for greater Checks and Balances upon government. This mechanism - a "People's Branch" of government will provide the common people/citizens a way for them to participate directly in government in order to protect their best interests and the best interest of their loved ones and the people/citizens as a whole. A People's Branch of government will provide protection of our rights and freedoms to the greatest degree possible, because, politicians, elected officials, bureaucrats, agencies and public servants are no longer trusted to always do the right thing for the best interest of the people/citizens they're supposed to serve. This "hands on" approach by the people/citizens themselves will create ever greater "Checks and Balances," to ensure ever greater transparency, accountability, fairness and justice in government, thereby making it easier to promote good legislation and prevent and/or repeal bad legislation. This in turn will lead to an ever greater, more fair and equitable government and justice system. A People's Branch of government will ultimately lead to ever greater, always widening, longer lasting peace and prosperity for all.

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, HEREBY PETITION OUR STATE LEGISLATORS TO ALLOW THE VOTING CITIZENS TO DECIDE BY SPECIAL REFERENDUM WHETHER TO ENACT A PEOPLE’S BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT, COMPRISING ALL ELIGIBLE VOTING CITIZENS AGE 35 OR OLDER, WITH THE BINDING AUTHORITY TO APPROVE BY MAJORITY VOTE ANY MATTER PASSED BY THEIR ELECTED OFFICIALS, WHEREAS, TO BECOME LEGALLY ENFORCEABLE SAID MATTER PASSED BY SAID ELECTED OFFICIALS MUST RECEIVE MAJORITY APPROVAL BY SAID PEOPLE’S BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT, THEREBY STRENGTHENING THE CHECKS AND BALANCES NEEDED TO HELP PREVENT AND/OR STOP UNDUE INFLUENCE OF ELECTED OFFICIALS AND/OR GOVERNMENT BY SPECIAL INTEREST.
