^in one of the examples about a constitution being changed above it seemed fairly easy to do. (Australia)

A bill is presented in the house(s) (whatever they are called)
It can start that way in America too., However, the process can also start with the State legislatures (two thirds) and then move to the Federal level, this can get a amendment out in the open so if the Federal government doesn't want to deal with it, it's too late, it's in the citizens view and already under public discussion by the time they (Federal) get their hands on it.
