We have over 200 years of experience with representative government, much of it successful. Bringing the citizen lawmaking to the federal government will permit our representatives to take back a good deal of the power that has devolved to bureaucracy. They will be in a position to be more responsive to the People with respect to the day-to-day operations of government. This legislative task is called "oversight," of which our representatives presently do very little due to a lack of time.
