Liberal court wins = 'game on, not game over'

A conservative political pundit says two high-profile decisions from the Supreme Court last week make it imperative that conservatives turn out at the polls in November 2016 to prevent what would essentially be an "Obama third term."

On consecutive days last week, the Supreme Court handed down edicts in favor of ObamaCare and same-sex "marriage." Two of the justices who voted against natural marriage were appointed to the high court by Barack Obama. A victory by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016 would give her the chance to appoint more liberal justices to the high court.

Ken Blackwell with Family Research Council says conservatives must not let that happen.

"We cannot accept that this is a fait accompli that we, in fact, must just roll over and accept an Obama third term by electing Hillary Clinton. That is not right," he tells OneNewsNow.

"It only is right if ... you assume that we stay home, that we don't come out, that we in fact accept the defeatism and let them march on with this fundamental transformation of our country."

The former mayor of Cincinnati and Ohio state official argues that conservatives can overcome the Democrats' successful use of the database known as Catalist to get their people to the polls in 2016.

"We have to turn out at the polls," he emphasizes. "We have just as many gifted intellectuals and techies who can tell us how to identify our voter base. We have just as much commitment – or we should have – to getting our people to the polls.

"This is game on; this is not game over."

As the 2016 election season moves forward, Hillary Clinton continues to lead every potential Republican challenger in head-to-head polls.
