National Citizens Initiative for Democracy
The National Citizens Initiative for Democracy (NCID) is a fundamental legislative proposal that will allow citizens, independent of Representative Government (Congress, Executive and the Judiciary), to propose and vote on laws. NCID consists of a Constitutional amendment and a federal statute.
The Citizens Amendment, a proposed amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America:
1.recognizes the legislative power of the people to make laws
2.permit the people to amend the constitution by holding two successive elections, more than six months but less than one year apart
3.creates the Citizens Trust to administer the procedures established by the Citizens Amendment and Citizens Legislative Procedures Act,
4.outlaws the use of funds from non-natural persons (for example corporate funds) in initiative elections under this article, and
5.outlaws non-natural persons (e.g. corporations and unions) from sponsoring or contributing to initiatives.
The Citizens Legislative Procedures Act, a proposed federal law:
1.sets out deliberative procedures to be used by citizens to create laws by initiative,
2.describes the key responsibilities of the Citizens Trust which shall administer the initiative process on behalf of the people, and
3.appropriates funds for the Citizens Trust from the United States Treasury
The National Citizens Initiative for Democracy does not change or eliminate Congress, the President, or the judicial system. Laws created by initiative must still be adjudicated by the courts just like laws created by Congress. The National Citizens Initiative for Democracy adds an additional check –– the People –– to our system of checks and balances, while setting up a governing partnership between the People and their elected representatives.
The full text of the proposed Amendment and Act are available here:

•The Citizens Legislative Procedures Act (4,927 words, 59 paragraphs)
