    right of referendum and initiative.  Both could be used to demand/force state legislators to call for a Constitutional  amendment as well as electing people to Congress who openly support a Constitutional amendment.

    As more states join the reform movement, pressure will build. Even without referendum and recall, a grassroots organization pushing for an amendment will build political pressure in each state and in the nation.  

    This is how/why current amendments were passed by Congress. Political pressure from the people MUST build.
