The 23-Month Timeline for Creating the New Constitution and Implementing the New Government


If at presidential election time, the American people decide they want a constitutional convention, then they will have almost 5 months, from November through April, to officially register with a national political party. Websites such as www.politics1.com describe all the known national political parties.   Then during the month of May, no switches can be made as the official count is reported by the National Elections Committee.

Any national political party that represents at least 1% of the nation's eligible voters will participate in national public speeches and debates, held from June through August.   The political parties will also share their party platforms and their own proposed constitutions in writing.  


Then from September through December, the representatives from the top 7 political parties, as determined 4 months earlier in May, will share their party platforms and proposed constitutions in writing, and they will engage in public speeches and debates.

Then during the second week of January, each voter will choose just one of the top 7 national political parties, if he or she    wants his or her vote to count, even if the voter is officially registered in a party that is not one of the top 7 political parties.  


Let us pretend for pedagogical purposes that the 100 delegates from the top 7 national political parties will be comprised of the following numbers at the Constitutional Convention:   Republican Party, 20; Democratic Party, 20; Libertarian Party, 15; Green Party, 15; Constitution Party, 15; Socialist Party, 10; and Communist Party, 5.


On March 1, the Constitutional Convention delegates will meet at the Capitol building in Washington D.C.   The delegates will work from March through May to create a new constitution that 51% or more of the delegates approve. The 100 delegates will choose one of their own attending delegates to be the chairman of the Convention using Instant Runoff Voting with 7 candidates on the slate.   Each party will choose one of its delegates to be the potential chairman.

If delegates reach a 51% majority before the 3 months elapse, they must use the remaining days to hear dissenting voices in the constant effort to revise their document through consensus decision-making in order to get an even higher percentage of approval. If only 50% or less of the delegates approves the new constitution after working on it for 3 months, then the proposed document becomes void, and the current constitution remains official.
