Ratification doesn’t create paradoxes, but no ratification has occurred here. 

Instead, the situation here is:

1) The Assessor CAN and MUST resolve the proposal ADOPTED; and

2) As soon as the proposal is resolved ADOPTED, it takes effect (if it CAN take 
effect) and it retroactively eliminates a necessary condition for its own 
ADOPTION, thereby making it retroactively IMPOSSIBLE to resolve it ADOPTED.

The paradox exists until ratification, when the proposal is deemed distributed 
without paradox.
