Sen. Justus is also way off base to suggest that a rich person or group can “buy” a law via the initiative and referendum process. Ample history shows that big spending initiative sponsors are more apt to lose than win. But it depends entirely on the idea they propose.

The great thing about initiatives is that ALL of us get to vote to make the decisions — not just a small number of legislators, who can be far more influenced by money than the public as a whole. The initiative cited in the article, pushed by Rex Sinquefield, received over 68 percent of the vote last November. That’s a democratic landslide!
