Term limits and the convention of the states

In the last debate, Trump called for term limits on Congress. That's a proposal that's unlikely to get much support from Congress (though it should get some) since Congress is unlikely to reach a two-thirds majority vote for cutting off its own gravy train.

On the other hand, an amendment proposed through a convention of states doesn't have to go through Congress at all.
