Conservative radio host Mark Levin on Friday proposed changing the United States Constitution because he said “America is a blue state right now.”

Levin told the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C that legislative efforts like President Barack Obama’s health care reform law meant that the country was facing “tyranny.”

To fix the problem, he proposed that two-thirds of the states meet for a convention to pass amendments to the Constitution.

“Now some of you come from blue states, I apologize that you’re in these blue states, I refuse to live in a dark blue state, but some of you live in dark blue states,” he told the audience. “And some of you are saying, ‘Well, this is great for those of you who are in purple states and red states.’ And my answer to you is this: America is blue state right now!”

“And the only way to address this is to find 34 state legislatures, and to take the time to do it. It took us a century to get here and so it make us 20 or 30 years get out of this. But we have no options. This is the only option,” Levin said. “I don’t care if no senator or no member of Congress supports this, we bypass them. That’s the entire purpose of this project.”

“If you have one out-of-control Supreme Court, one out-of-control Congress and one out-of-control president, there’s no where to go!”
