That's weird mine always pass. When you propose an edict make sure that you select one that has only a green arrow pointing up for your kingdom or another kingdom. When you select one that effects other kingdoms try to have a good personal relation with the liege of that certain kingdom by talking to them alot in the kings hall or visitors hall.

Which is what I already do to get the responsibility done. it doesn't help me get MY edicts passed, though. :P
"View all edicts" which will show you all current proposed edicts. Following this, click on the one you proposed and add either a tax or a benefit to that.
Depending on the allegiance of your opposition, put money in accordingly.
Ex. If your advisor tends to support the village and you want him to vote for your edict, add a benefit to your proposed edict that benefits the village. He will in turn usually vote for you.
Why you have to buy votes in a monarchy is beyond me. (That's how it works though.)
