Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) says the U.S. of today will become unrecognizable if “one more liberal justice” is appointed to the Supreme Court.
 
“One more liberal justice and our right to keep and bear arms is taken away from us by an activist court,” Cruz said at a campaign rally in Iowa on Friday, according to the Des Moines Register
 
{mosads}“One more liberal justice and they begin sandblasting and bulldozing veterans memorials throughout this country,” he added.
 
“One more liberal justice and we lose our sovereignty to the United Nations and the World Court.”
 
Cruz was critical of the high court after its decisions to uphold Obamacare and legalize gay marriage last term.
 
He said the Supreme Court should face elections in order to hold the nine-justice tribunal accountable.
 
The GOP primary hopeful also said Chief Justice John Roberts put on an “Obama jersey” in his King v. Burwell majority decision that upheld the Obamacare subsidies.
 
Cruz has surged to third place with 10 percent support in the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucus, according to a Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register poll released this week.
 
He is in fourth place overall in the race with 7.8 percent support, according to a RealClearPolitics average of polls.
