Under the SOL constitution, SOL senators are required to vote in accordance with the party’s view. The party has been set up to represent the clear majority view. SOL will use on-line polls to ascertain if there is a clear majority view. Where a poll indicates a clear majority view (that being at least 100,000 votes and at least a 70% majority view) SOL senators have committed to vote in accordance with that majority view. In the event of votes being less than 100,000 or the majority not reaching 70%, then the SOL senators have committed to vote in accordance with the majority view, if a clear majority view can be determined by the party or otherwise abstain.
it ought to be the happiness and glory of a representative to live in the strictest union, the closest correspondence, and the most unreserved communication with his constituents. Their wishes ought to have great weight with him; their opinions high respect; their business unremitted attention. It is his duty to sacrifice his repose, his pleasure, his satisfactions, to theirs—and above all, ever, and in all cases, to prefer their interest to his own.
But his unbiased opinion, his mature judgment, his enlightened conscience, he ought not to sacrifice to you, to any man, or to any set of men living. These he does not derive from your pleasure—no, nor from the law and the Constitution. They are a trust from Providence, for the abuse of which he is deeply answerable. Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
