Listen to interview at:
As President Obama and likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney remain locked in a virtual dead heat, is there any room for a third party to make a statement or even be competitive in 2012?
Thats the hope of the Constitution Party and its nominee, Virgil Goode.
Goode says Obamas spending is completely out of control but Republican proposals are also not good enough because he says the budget needs to be balanced now and not in a few years or a couple of generations from now.
I would submit a balanced budget if elected president, and it would be painful, Goode told WND.
He expects a fierce fight with Congress about cutting spending, but his plan would not focus on entitlement reforms. Instead, Goode envisions big cuts in discretionary spending both in the defense and domestic portions of the budget. When it comes to jobs, Goodes top priorities are to end illegal immigration and nearly put a stop to legal immigration in order to prevent foreign workers from competing with Americans for the job opportunities that exist.
Weve got to focus on discretionary spending, social-services programs. For instance, Ill make sure illegals and recent immigrants dont get food stamps, said Goode.
Goode says he would also seek to repeal Obama administration regulations that he says are stifling job creation. He would start with the Obama health care-laws which Goode considers the most repressive to job creators. The former congressman says he is not a spoiler in the race but is a much needed voice on fiscal responsibility, ending government programs for illegal immigrants and other issues.

"We've got to focus on social service programs...food stamps." He says to be tough on new sign-ups and definitely no illegal or recent immigrants.
End any new increase in Defense Spending. Can't afford increases right now. Wait for the economy to improve. We want the best defense, but the economy being strong is the predicate that undergirds a strong defense.

Goode says we need to END birthright citizenship, and that both Romney and Obama support it.
Wants to end green carders getting tax reductions for claiming relatives living in other countries.
A vote for Goode is a vote for Obamanation.
Who does he think he is? That's racist!
I thought Jim Robinson called for a truce?
Same old tired rhetoric from people who are content with the "scraps" and rare "win" they get from the Republican Party. Funny how some claim to have principles but then toss them out the window for what appears to be a potential win. Ultimately though, the Dems and Pubs are leading us down the same path, the only difference is the speed.
For so many it’s a matter of having a winning team...the yankees, red sox, cowboys, lakers....you name it.
They care about the “win”. They talk about “loving” and “hating” candidates.
It’s an “emotional” investment akin to following a favorite team, a winning program being the ultimate.
For others, it’s a matter of the nation and the best principles for governing that nation.
These folks are not ABLE to support Romney any more than they’re able to support Obama. He is a big government, anti-life, anti-natural law candidate.
Romney defies the natural order, and therefore, he defies creation and its Creator.
He cannot be supported by principled conservatives. He can only be supported by the emotionally driven.
A vote for Goode is a vote for Obamanation.
Your an idiot. A vote for Goode is a vote for Goode. And you are not even close to a conservative if you are bashing the only conservative running in the General.
How is the Virgil “The Loser” Goode going to end birthright citizenship?? You do have to realize that in order amend the Constitution, you need 2/3 of both houses and 3/4 of the states to do it.
Exactly. Some people move from team to team, always trying to follow the winner because they want the ego boost.
I, on the other hand, have remained and always will be a KC Royals fan.
Nope. Congress merely needs to clarify a definition (which, in this case, would be the one originally intended by the 14th amendment's author) of "natural born citizen" that excludes birthright citizenship. No need to amend anything except present statutory law.
Well at least I know the difference between "your" and "you're"!
Sorry but I can’t get behind a baby killer like you support. You can risk the fires of hell through your support of liberal Romney, but count me out.
I will disagree. Birthright citizenship is an interpretation and not the intent. An originalist would see BR ctzshp as misguided.
Thanks for sharing your views, dear brother in Christ!
My only concern (with a question) is for conserving non-Romney delegates, and to hopefully convert some uncommitted delegates, in order to make a showing on the second ballot that proves some degree of threat to the GOPE. It seems to me that an unknown who is seen as debuting a Third Party at this late date would not prove profitable to shaking up the Republican Party.
2010 was a kick off to change that mattered. The dissident vote against the GOPE is not entirely insignificant, and serves as one more step of fearlessness that if it can only gain steam, could be the wake-up call to the Establishment that their rule and reign, their money, pay offs, and pressure threats circulating around DC are coming to an end.
If Rush is right and the GOP only wanted the senate all along, then this is a Republican leadership out to defend turf and further entrench nothing more than their personal power, with no respect for the voters. Conservatives have simply got to cut them loose.
Delegates are now the last voice of the grassroots, and it seems to me that whoever of all the candidates has the most delegates in our upcoming state primaries should vote for that candidate, regardless who it is. There is no other way to make the Republican convention actually matter, is there?
I so, then please explain to me how your position and that of your like-minded coterie isn't itself thoroughly "emotional," when you boil it all down.
I sure hope this doesn’t put the Republican nominee behind Obama in the popular vote.
