Sorry, but I was initially only replying to your post about California's budget being the fault of its ballot initiative process.
I haven't proposed any change. I'm stating that your interpretation of DD is simplistic. When implemented into, not replacing, something like the
current system in the US then it won't become mob rule.
There will still be the actual system of checks and balances in place and the constitution will still be the supreme law of the land.
Anything passed by DD could still be shot down by the SCOTUS if it violates the constitution. Going into further detail is a waste of time because
they are secondary to the fact that it will pretty much be the same as the actual system.
