Citizens for U.S. Direct Initiatives Inc.
(CUSDI) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan corporation. It was incorporated
and registered in Washington State on February 13, 2004.
Our mission is to develop and present on the Internet a
comprehensive blueprint to enable a practical and achievable direct
democracy process. This process will permit long-term solutions to
excessive influence of the U.S. Government by wealthy special interests and other matters that trouble the
A number of private U.S. citizens formed and control this
organization out of concern about the rapidly
increasing influence over of our government by special interest
groups. No one at the organization has had a political career though we
have interfaced extensively with those who have. We are non-partisan, either independent or not strongly allied to a party. We
are all economically comfortable but none is very rich. We all hold
advanced degrees in a range of subjects. We have all had successful
careers, have held responsible positions and are now mostly retired from
our original careers. The value of what we are doing comes from time
spent on it, cash outlays are modest, and no one receives compensation. We get our
satisfaction in the belief that we are providing a public service. We
greatly value our privacy, do not seek or wish any notoriety, and
sincerely request that others respect these wishes.
