October 1--The new government under the new constitution will be implemented   


(End of 23-Month Timeline and Timeline Summary)  

  The spoken and written words of the delegates must be publicized, and citizens will be allowed to voice their own opinions in the process.   

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

Though nothing is guaranteed, one thing is certain, the playing field will be leveled as never before, if the creation of the new constitution is based on the 23-month process outlined above.   The Convention delegates may not implement all the reform measures that this author advocates, but the delegates will implement the collective will and current worldview of the American people.  

  This author, however, would recommend these changes: The Constitutional Convention would establish a new government with a one-house federal legislature. The current 435 federal districts would remain, but future legislators would be elected through Proportional Representation. The former Electoral College System and the US Senate would be abolished.   Why should California have the same representation in the Senate as Wyoming when California's population is 70 times greater than Wyoming's?  

Furthermore, all money would be taken out of politics with public financing for the 7 major political parties.   Our banking system would be controlled by the US Congress rather than the Federal Reserve.   Moreover, Single Payer Health Insurance (the government being the single payer), or Medicare, would be extended to all Americans.
