    on the ballot without the governor's or legislature's approval?  Even that might pull in more voters.  

    So we're stuck in the current system until there's such widespread outcry that the legislature and governor are both progressive enough to agree and feel sufficient political pressure to act. Until then, I'm afraid we'll be a drag on the rest of the states with more democratically-oriented institutional structures.
    Sadly, you're probably right.  My own state, Illinois, just in the last few months approved medical marijuana and still doesn't have marriage equality.

      We are, unfortunately, one of the least progressive states in this regard.
