Posted on 04/25/2012 7:34:06 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing
On Saturday, the Constitution Party nominated Virgil Goode, a former U.S. House member from Virginia, as its presidential candidate. He won the nomination on the first ballot with 203 out of 403 delegates. He defeated Darrell Castle of Tennessee, national vice chairman of the Constitution Party; Susan Ducey, a constitutional activist from Kansas; Laurie Roth, of Washington, a columnist and talk show host; and Robby Carr Wells of North Carolina, a former NCAA Division I football coach at Savannah State University. The final vote total was Goode 203, Castle 120, Wells 58, Ducey 15, Roth 6. Jim Clymer, the national chairman of the Constitution Party, was selected as the vice-presidential nominee.

Then enjoy Obama’s second term.
I’ll either be voting for Goode or writing in Sarah Palin’s name, depending on what mood I’m in on election day.
I know Obama will win but I find it to be quite exhilarating to be free of the Grand Old Plantation anyway.
after all, Obama can put me in a concentration camp but he can’t take my soul and I see no point in selling it to vote for the other Democrat.
Yeah, I know exactly how you feel.
(Creek, I hope you don't mind me snagging your graphic)
Is the name pronounced GOOD or GUDE?
What a Chooch!!! He was a good Congress Critter.
We are getting a 2nd “Obama term”, regardless of if the “R” or “D” wins...
Might as well vote your conscience... Anyone who votes for Romney and claims Conservative values... is betraying their true heart.
Riiigggghhht! I guess you never heard of the Supreme Court! Enjoy your bubble!
As if Romney has a shot.
We are getting a 2nd Obama term, regardless of if the R or D wins...
At least the effeminate dark one can only get 4 more years. The lighter obama can get 8 more years.
If idiots stay home and vote for chooches in third parties, he won’t have a shot. The country is NOT happy with Obamacare, his jihads against the states, his ECs, etc.
Enjoy your own bubble. Have you seen the leftist crap that Romney nominated to the judiciary?
He won't be your salvation on that score. Besides the fact he can't win.
I won't be voting for a liberal, and Romney is certainly is a liberal.
I saw Romney’s speech last night. He can and will win.
rhymes with food
He should get two or three percent of the vote, easy!
In other news, paint was seen drying. Film at 11:00. YAWN!!
Good luck with that line of BS!
Sorry, but a vote for any candidate who has ZERO chance to win the General Election IS a vote for a liberal - that being Obozo (who is also a socialist and intentionally out to bring down the U.S. in flames). The sheer stupidity of the ideology that voting for some other candidate who has the same chance as a snowball in hell is somehow voting against a liberal is mind boggling.
A vote for a conservative (not Romney) is NOT going to add a single vote to Obama's total.
Maybe you should lean on the GOP to put up conservatives and tell them to quit playing dirty tricks and slamming conservatives(Rove in particular), because Dole, McCain, and Romney will make a trifecta for the GOP.
Funny freepers are rallying around Romney all of sudden. I get it. Obama sucks balls. Why didn’t goode ask for money earlier? I, and others stand with all his positions.. I give up...
Two negatives don’t equal a positive in this case. Two negatives equals a turd. Were gonna smell shit either way. I want a candidate and im sick and tired of this..
Soylent Green. it's people!
Voting for liberals will get you liberals in office.
Soylent Green. it's people!
That’s the way im leaning. Ill vote for Goode, move on with my life, and defend the ones I love. No getting worked up over it. The pendulum will swing whenever the populace gets pissed. Funny how my Bp went down after the pic of z’s. Head. I just laughed and said there is no way this is going to trial.....
I'm suppose to "lean" on the GOP? Where exactly is this magical power you seem to believe I possess? I'd really like to know, because then perhaps I could make more of a difference.
Since I'm in CA, and our primary hasn't happened yet, once more I'm looking at being totally irrelevant in the primary. I'll cast my vote for the candidate of my choice, despite the fact he probably won't be running before our primary. Once the nominee is selected, I will vote for the nominee. If that bothers some people here - oh, well. I WILL NOT vote for Obozo by voting third party or write in for someone who either isn't running or cannot win. For those who are unable to understand this, that's their problem. The "If I wanted America to Fail" youtube video is enough to convince me that Obozo must go.
voting in such a way that reelects Obozo just destroys America.
I'm in CA too. Very sad that Newt won't be in it by the time we get to Vote in June.
You and all the other mitt supporters could vote for Goode and beat both the socialists.
Since you won’t. Enjoy Obama’s second term.
Wrong! Newt is conservative and I voted for him yesterday. If you haven’t been $upporting Newt all along, you aren’t serious about our country, IMO. America’s been used and abused by those who took it for granted - as if it will always be there.
ONLY NEWT has the proven skills and plans in place to start on day one to undo some of the damage to America. But due to lack of $upport and votes - it’s clear all the hype people want America to be restored - it’s proven bogus. So I’m not interested in what you are pushing.
Maybe we need 4 more years of this ass in office to wake people up. Unfortunately, people are too dumb.. I wish I had a secret u-obummer ring..
I hear ya!
Love the tag line.. Just listened to Toby Mac’s “Lose my soul” based on the same verse.
I voted Newt in Fl. Doesn’t seem to matter anymore.... I still want my conservative dammit.
I’ll seriously consider voting for Goode. I’m thoroughly displeased with the GOP nominee. I feel like voting for Romney sends the message to the GOP that we’re OK with the GOP not being a conservative party, and I’m NOT OK with that.
Calling someone a “newb” does not an intelligent argument make. The rest of your post is laughable and smacks of serious denial. Newt just dropped out. Of course Romney will have the delegates. Everyone but a few people on the internet know that.
YOU HAVE to be A LIBERAL democrat to vote for mitt.
Reality? Like a pro homo, baby killing, socialistic form of healthcare candidate on a GOP ticket?
The only reason I vote for Romney is that I do feel he half way likes his country. I can’t stand Obama at national patriotic events with his sourpuss face about having to be there and open disdain for all things great about the USA. But I may not vote for the Mormon after all . . .
There has been something wrong with every candidate according to posters on this board, so given what I have read here over the last couple of years, I’ve no doubt this Goode guy has something wrong with him that would disqualify him after being hailed for a few days.
Constitution Party is a joke, plain and simple, and no closer to winning an election than Rent is too damn high Party. And people not voting, voting for Virgil Goode, or writing in Sarah Palin (who clearly has no desire to be POTUS) will not somehow bring us to depths that will lead to a magical conservative uprising that will have “true” conservatives running the show someday. All pouting because your ideal conservative (who must be mythical like the unicorn) will do is guarantee us having to live through 4 more years of the worst POTUS in the history of this country.
And no one will thank you for standing your ground waiting for candidate that clearly does not exist.
Im voting for Goods too! We have some time for a grass roofs effort if people would quit supporting Mitt all of a sudden. The lesser of two evils I understand. But I believe in ALL of Goodes positions. Bring it!
Did you hear with your own ears that Newt dropped out?
I’m betting you are a propaganda pablum eater.
How cute - did you think you would fool anyone with your screen name, NEWBIE/retread!
So your saying we should vote for the gun grabbing, pro-abortion (don’t give me that “he’s seen the light BS) god father of Obamacare?
I have standards, morals and values. NONE of them line up with Romney.
So.. Why should I vote for him? (WITH OUT MENTIONING OBAMA AND OBAMA’S PLANS/RECORDS)
You could bring up the SCOTUS but I suspect Romney would give us liberals based on his record. So as I see it, the court is lost either way. With Obama at least the republicans can bottle up the nomination in the senate if they take it. And I doubt they will because Romney has no coattails.
How many uncontested delegates does Romney currently have? Exactly?
You claim Romney will win in November over Obama. I say he won't. History is on my side.
Tell me in November, if you are still here.
I won't vote for Romney. Ever.
