June thru November (8th through the 13th month)--Public speeches, forums, debates, and written responses from all political parties that captured at least one percent or more of the national vote

Second week of January (during the 15th month)--Each American voter will vote a second time for a national political party, after hearing from all the national political parties that captured at least one percent of the vote. Potentially, there could be 100 parties, but that is highly unlikely.

So, as a result of the second vote in January, hypothetically speaking, if the national Democratic Party got 13 percent of the votes, then there will be 13 Democratic Party delegates at the Constitutional Convention. If the national Socialist Party got 14 percent of the votes, then there will be 14 Socialist Party delegates at the Constitutional Convention. If the national Libertarian Party got 16 percent of the votes, then there will be 16 Libertarian delegates sent to the Constitutional Convention, and so forth.

Third week of January through the month of February (a 6 week period)--Each national political party that garnered at least one percent of the vote in this second and last election for Constitutional Convention delegates will have to choose some internal method for selecting which of its delegates will go the Constitutional Convention.

March thru May (17th through the 19th month)--the 3-month duration of the Constitutional Convention

Second Week of June (20th month)--The American people will vote on whether they approve the new constitution that 51 percent or more of the Convention delegates agreed on. If at least 51 percent of the American voters approve the new document, then the new document will become the new official Third Constitution of the United States about 4 1/2 months later on November 1.

November 1 (24 months later)--The new third government under the new Third Constitution, will begin if it had been approved 4 1/2 months earlier by both the Constitutional Convention delegates with a 51-percent majority and by the American people with a 51-percent majority. (End of 24-Month Timeline Summary for Creating the Third National Constitution up to the Start of the Third Government)

During the Constitutional Convention, the spoken and written words of the Constitutional Convention delegates must be publicized, and concerned citizens will be allowed to express their own opinions by voting yes or no on various proposals.

The US Congress, the President, and the US Supreme Court will not have the right to control or interfere with the Constitutional Convention. They can, however, express their opinions and recommendations in the process.

There does not have to be any violent revolution to create a new third national constitution. We the People can agree to be fair--and we can agree to be open, honest, and transparent.

If the 24-month timeline expressed in "The New Article V For This Generation" is found to be effective in creating the Third Constitution of the United States, it, or something better, can be used to create The Fourth Constitution of the United States, when a new supreme document of the land is desired by the people, to provide continuity into the future.

June 4, 2019: I grew up in a church that said you had to speak in tongues to get saved and go to heaven. I often prayed fervently for the experience in the prayer room at church, where people would cry and wail, and roll on the floor. One (more...)
