The Beginning of a Journey - A People Power Preservation Movement
2020 Jan 071h 19m 6s
A pro-democracy activist is born! This episode is dedicated to the birth of the North Dakota Constitution and a celebration of 130 years. The Citizens of ND hold a powerful check and balance initiative process for Direct Democracy to respond to either the action or inaction of the ND Legislative body which, serves at the will of the People. The early framers saw fit to embed this power early on; currently, the Citizen Initiative process is being Constitutionally challenged by a super majority of the 66th Legislative Session. This movement is a continuation of a personal and ND community commitment to preserving the People's Constitutional Direct Democracy.
