Thank ya kindly.

I knew Goode voted against the bailouts because he was stripped of party funding in that campaign like my congressman was. I believe they stripped Michele Bachmann of funding too but she pulled out a win anyway. My congressman lost by 2% that year but we reelected him in 2010.

Hmmm...Interesting, I have been researching the History of Political Parties, and after what will be a truly shameful election season this year, maybe we can pull something new out of our hats.

Real Conservatives like this Virigl Goode, Sarah and others we could A: take back the GOP (if Mittens hasn't pulled it irrevocably to the left yet) B: get enough Conservatives elected to office, and then the Repub's refuse to support them we jump ship and strike out on our own.

This will be the fourth straight presidential election I've voted Constitution Party Candidate for POTUS. The GOP choices during that time have been going from bad to highly unacceptable.

It's the first major interview of a presidential candidate.

There will be very few candidates from recognized parties, and Virgil Goode is the only experienced, well-known conservative in this 2012 election.

In accordance with FR custom:

- Goode was elected as an independent and switched to the Democrat party.

- Major campaign focus was for passage for the Equal Rights Amendment.

- Big supporter of Democrat L. Douglas Wilder, nominated him for Lt. Gov. at Dem convention. Wilder went on to crack down on gun sales as Governor.

- Lost to Democrat U.S. Senator Chuck Robb in Democrat primary.

- Elected to U.S. House as a Democrat, caucused with democrats until 2000, switching to independent, then Republican.

- 2008 lost to Democrat Tom Perriello

- 2010 Filed paperwork with FEC to allow him to raise money for rematch, announced in late July 2009 that he would not run.

You made me watch the video. Blech. I recommend his supporters stick to print and bury any video or audio of him. I think I know now why he didn’t chance a run in the GOP primary.

I agree with you. He makes Bush look like a master orator. I think the House was Goode’s high watermark in political campaigning and he lost that to a Dem. But hey, his party is “ballot eligible” in 17 states.

Best thing would be for Americans Elect to get on ballot in VIrginia with someone who will bleed the democrats equal to whatever pittance Goode gets.

I looked up his voting record in his democrat years.

His ACU rating was more conservative than all but four or five republicans. He doubled Zell Miller’s ratings, and Zell was always held up by Hannity and crew as the ideal democrat.

He voted to IMPEACH Clinton....something that didn’t happen with all republicans in the house, and very, very few in the Senate.

As he says, he came up in the Virginia ranks as a conservative Virginia democrat where democrats were conservative. I remember those years. I was a conservative Ohio democrat and my family were conservative N Carolina democrats.

But, his principles remained the same. He voted for conservative issues.

He has a perfect pro-life record. A pro-life, pro-God, pro-Gun, pro-fiscal sanity, pro-small government record.

Now...you tell me that Mitt Romney is a conservative.

Goode has a 100% pro-life record.

Which of the above 3 candidates has been the consistent conservative?

I don’t think the ERA was a conservative proposal. Nor was Gov. Wilder a conservative. And he lost his own district to a Dem.

On the ballot in how many states?

Sorry, not a serious candidate against Obama. Primary mission in this election is to remove the regime from power. Goode is not good for that mission - if anything he hinders it.

I don’t really care what Goode’s positions are. If I wanted to vote for the person who most agrees with my positions, I’d vote for myself.

But that would stupid because I have no chance of defeating the Obama marxist regime.

And neither does Goode.

Thanks for posting this, xzins. I'm listening now and so far, I like him. Goode sounds like an intelligent, very well educated, sober, reasonable man with some good ideas and sound principles.

Wikipedia says he served in the Virginia Army National Guard from 1969-1975.

I haven't had a chance to read his entire history. He's a Viriginia lawyer, he used to be a Democrat and switched sometime around 2000, he sounds like he is for enforcing current immigration laws.

I'm waiting to hear him speak about his positions on foreign relations, defense at home and overseas, the economy, education, etc.

He is answering questions off the cuff, and doesn't redirect the question. I like that. He is explaining why he only wants to serve one term.

At this point in his interview, Virgil Goode sounds to me like he is a good citizen first and a politician second.

Would you rather have Obama or Romney? That's the real question.

Goode isn't running for president. You can think he is but in the real world, he's not. In the real world, the next President will be either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. Not Virgil Goode, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny or the resurrected ghost of Ronald Reagan.

Obama or Romney. Who do you want?

Goode is extremely pro-gun yet supported Wilder. He did not change his pro-gun views.

Goode is extremely pro-life and anti-gay agenda yet he supported the ERA. He did not budge one inch on life and gay agenda.

He supported Wilder to show acceptance of equality for Blacks, and he supported the ERA portion about equality of opportunity under the law. Everyone at the time said it was the extremes to which a court might interpret the ERA tha they worried about, not about standing for equality of opportunity and equal treatment under the law.

At NO TIME did he become anti-gun or anti-life.

Obama is BOTH anti-guna and anti-life.
Romney was BOTH anti-gun and anti-life.

Goode has ALWAYS been pro-gun and pro-life.

Which one is the conservative.

So, the best you have against Goode is that he believed in equal opportunity under the law, supporting both a black man and a equality for females?

I agree with *all* my positions on the issues. So I’m a much better candidate for me to vote for.

And, as I said previously, “In accordance with FR custom..” we have to completely trash all candidates. Nothing personal.

So, I’m sorry, being a Democrat and supporting the liberal feminist agenda is a deal-killer for Goode. Gotta rule him out for that.

Well that and he has no chance of defeating the Obama regime.

I’m more conservative than any of them! Hooray for me!

But I’m not voting for me - for anything.

If Goode were running for congress in my district - and was on the ballot - I might vote for him.

But not against Obama for president in this election. That would be stupid and very contrary to the good of the republic.

IMHO, of course.

The Constitution Party was on the ballot in 40 states in 2008. They will be again, and maybe a few more.

That only highlights the hurdles that are placed before 3rd parties to gain ballot access, and those hurdles are created by commissions with members from the....you guessed it....dem/rep parties.

Nonetheless, George Bush won with only 29 states in 2000 and with 30 states in 2004. So, depending on the states, a win could be easily had with 40 states. No one is getting Calif, NY, etc. out of the democrats hands in this cycle.

I think you're wrong there. And their candidate got less than 200k votes that year. Goode said they were "ballot eligible" in 17 states and 'hoped' to be in 40 states.

Which, by the way is still short of Lenora Fulani of the New Alliance party in 1988 - she was on the ballot in all 50 states during her first Presidential campaign. Perhaps Goode should hire her.

Because we wont support the SOB much less vote for him. Its just the facts of life. Deal with it...

SO...

If you really want to do something constructive join us in forcing the GOP to open the convention. We DEMAND a brokered convention where we can hammer out a candidate that is acceptable.

If the GOP refuses to meet this simple demand then they can go along the path of socialism without us.

I don’t agree Romney has no chance.

As far as opening the convention, I’m voting to give delegates to Newt. I doubt my or others actions will prevent Romney’s nomination. Had we united behind a notRomney opponent earlier, it was possible, much less likely now- every other candidate has stopped campaigning.

Do you see some other math that I don’t?

Getting rid of romney is going to take EXTRAORDINARY pressure.

IF the delegates and those in leadership of the GOP are made to understand that a SIGNIFICANT percentage of the folks who reliably vote for / work for / donate to the republican candidates WONT vote for Romney if he is the candidate. Then we have a SHOT at getting a brokered convention.

However... this takes SOLIDARITY on the part of the anti-socialists. F’ing idiots who go around saying “I dont like romney, but ill vote for him against obama” are NOT F’ING helping. Your giving AID AND COMFORT TO THE ENEMY!!! Your giving the delegates and the GOP-e the VERY FALSE impression that the rest of us are going to follow your lead and vote the republican socialist.

You and your buddies need to STFU.
