National Citizen's Initiative for Democracy
Website:Official website
The National Citizen's Initiative for Democracy (NCID) is a proposed law developed by former U.S. Senator Mike Gravel in conjunction with two non-profit corporations, The Democracy Foundation and Philadelphia II.[1]

About the NI4d

The National Initiative includes a constitutional amendment (the Democracy Amendment) and a federal statute (the Democracy Act).[1]

The Democracy Amendment, if it became part of the U.S. Constitution, would:[1]

  • Assert the legislative powers of the people,
  • Outlaw the use of monies not from natural persons in initiative elections,
  • Create an Electoral Trust
  • Legitimize the Democracy Act conducted by Philadelphia II, a non-profit IRS 501 C (4) corporation, giving Americans the opportunity to vote on the National Initiative.

The Democracy Act, if it became a federal statute, would:[1]

  • Set out deliberative legislative procedures (copied from Congress and vital for intelligent lawmaking) to be used for initiative lawmaking by citizens,
  • Define the limited powers of the Electoral Trust that administers the legislative procedures on behalf of the people, and
  • Define the electoral threshold that must be reached for the National Initiative to become the law of the land.
