Excerpt from A Stolen Government: How to Restore It, and to Thwart Further Embezzlement of Power, Through the Advisory Initiative, or Public Opinion Law"No matter how bad your laws may be, if the people have the power to make them good they will make them good, and the most important provision that you can have is a provision that places in the hands of the people power to correct the Constitution and make it keep pace with progress and intelligence, and the initiative and referendum are the best things that we have found so far to bring the government near to the people." - William. Jennings Bryan."To-day, as in 1776, the establishment of political liberty is the dominant issue. Why should voters choose between rulers when they can at once become the sovereign power?" - American Federation of Labor."The Maine Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church heartily indorses the principles of the initiative and referendum. The secretary is directed to prepare a memorial in favor of the initiative and referendum and send it to the Maine Legislature of 1907." - Resolutions adopted April 15, 1906."Resolved, That we heartily endorse the non-partisan movement for the extension of the use of the referendum, and recommend the subject to the careful consideration of all the farmers in all our states." - National Grange, Patrons of Husbandry.Constitutional amendments for the adoption of the Initiative and Referendum have been approved by the legislatures, and are to be submitted to a vote of the people this year in Ohio, Maine and North Dakota. States that have adopted the initiative and referendum, in whole or part, are: Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Montana, California, Illinois, Iowa, Delaware and Texas.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
