Former Virginia congressman Virgil Goode says voters should turn to a third party if they want real change in the nation.

By Trevor Brown tbrown@wyomingnews.com

CHEYENNE -- Voters need to look to a third party if they want to see real change for the country, Constitution Party presidential candidate Virgil Goode says.

A former congressman from Virginia, Goode stopped here Wednesday during a campaign swing through Wyoming.

“If America wants a true grassroots president who will answer the telephone from somebody sitting in this audience … as quick as they would take a call from somebody like Warren Buffett or a heavy hitter from Bain Capital, vote for Virgil Goode,” he told about 20 supporters outside the State Capitol.

“If you want the same that you got now, vote for (Barack) Obama or vote for (Mitt) Romney.”

Goode was nominated as the Constitution Party’s presidential nominee during its convention in April.

“If you want the same that you got now, vote for (Barack) Obama or vote for (Mitt) Romney.” — That’s the money shot.

A third party needs some roots in the legislature first. The TEA party is moving in that direction. For right now one needs a D or R next to the name on the ballot

Six of one, half-a-dozen of the other.

“Six of one, half-a-dozen of the other.”

Oh, please. Two (maybe three) SCOTUS noms, cementing healthcare and God knows what else GUARANTEED by Obama. A Tea Party influenced House and a few senate seats to take us to 51+ and we roll the dice with Mttens.

I can’t stand to think of hearing the Obamites chanting FOUR MORE YEARS...can you?

I debated Mr. Goode three times in the past week.

Even though he admits them to be unconstitutional, he vociferously supports the centerpiece programs of the New Deal and the Great Society.

Bottom line, he’s still a New Deal Democrat.

And he thinks he can balance the budget on the back of defense.

He’s no Elena Kagan. Don’t know yet - too soon to tell. Lot of pretty smart folks think there was a time bomb in that decision. We’ll see.

I’ll give you my opinion on Roberts’ decision, and I don’t think any of the talking heads got this right.

I think Roberts is a good GOP-e kind of guy that cares more about their establishment guy getting elected than he does about doing what’s right.

He could have killed ObamaTax. Instead, he turfed it to the election, and he did it so the Tea Party conservatives that cut their teeth on opposing this atrocity would be forced to see the election as a final stand to get rid of it.

And. It worked. There’s a lot of conservatives out there that will now vote for Romney as a last chance to get rid of ObamaTax. To quote my wife, Romney wants to “repeal and replace” ObamaTax, “His idea of replacing it is probably almost as scary as the real thing.”

Roberts took one for the GOP-e team. In real terms, they traded an outright win on gutting ObamaTax for your vote in November and a possible loss.

Your vote for the GOP-e guy was more important to them than getting rid of ObamaTax is. Imagine that.

It’s OK. If they lose, their payback to you is now built into the cake.

I think that Goode and the Constitution Party maybe a great alternative some day. Who knows.

But as far as I can tell, there are no Constitution Party members in the Congress or in local office to any great degree. It equates to “Hi, I’m Berdie and I want to run this company..trust me.”

The Libertarian Party has struggled for years and gained some success. The Tea Party will be more successful in a shorter period of time, imho.

Mr. Goode should perhaps run for a national office. Like Senator or Congressman. Maybe he could get a toe hold.

And if I hear FOUR MORE YEARS...my heart will break.

I’ve heard opinions from all over the place, but a bad decision is a bad decision, and this was just plain bad. Sadly, some Republican Presidents have appointed some of the worst people to inhabit the bench (not to say Democrats haven’t, but you’d conversely expect Republican appointees to do right, and yet they simply all can’t be counted upon). Having seen the garbage that Willard put on the bench in MA, whatever he is likely to go with ain’t going to be on the side of strict constructionism.

A vote for Mr. Goode is the same as voting for Obama...no vote is the same as a vote for Obama.

All you Obama supporters here should be proud of your principled stance! I am sure that you will be hiding your opinions about conservatism once Obama is unfettered with a second term...just like the courage you show now that you KNOW will help Obama get four more years to seal the destruction of America.

A vote for robama is a vote for obamney. I can't join the fags, gun-grabbers, baby killers, obamneycare, NWO types and other assorted human garbage who are voting for one or other of the Bobsie Twins.

Some people think they can eat the clean end of a sh*t sandwich, and some of us choose to go with nice, clean, Conservative, Virginia ham on rye instead.

They are not the same, Romney is a conservative who believes in and understands the power of liberty. Obama is a committed communist intent on making the destruction of America permanent (yes, it has already been destroyed).

Your crass post shows that you will never be capable of understanding truth or reality, but perhaps others will be able to and be swayed into doing the right thing this election and voting for Romney and all Republicans this time...we must give them one more shot to do the right thing.

The alternative is unthinkably bad...

Just when I think I’ll be able to enter the booth and vote for Romney, a new day happens and his true, progressive nature shines through.

I’ll most certainly show up to vote down ticket. The top? Don’t know that I’m especially interested in fighting Romney on amnesty, his kinder, gentler version of socialist health care, etc.

This morning, I’m down to Israel being about the only reason I can vote for him. He’ll certainly be better for our historical allies than Obama has been.

Mitt Romney is not a conservative. A Republican, yes. But most certainly not conservative.

That makes him unfit for any office let alone the Supreme Court. The GOP-e is the greatest threat facing America today. Until we defeat them, we’ll never win over the Marxist, new world order types or even the Islamofascists.

You’ll be sure to win the argument with that line of reasoning. Voting for Romney in the primary was a vote for Obama’s policies. The same holds true for the general election. The choice is whether you want 4 more years or 8.

HEY!

People who would rather sit around and play armchair cowboy and badmouth someone who is ACTUALLY TRYING TO DO SOMETHING should be ashamed of themselves.

What have you PERSONALLY and physically done recently to keep the country from going down the toilet......slick?

Gave up your personal time with your family to campaign for office? Stomped the streets to register voters? Gave your hard earned money to a political campaign? Worked a phone-bank? Acted as a poll watcher?

HUH? C'mon SLICK...share. You're so free with your criticism and slander of others, why don't you pony up and tell us what YOU'VE done to help the situation.

If you want to help Barack Obama finish off America just send him your donation directly - why bother with a middle man?

Seriously, did you post that with a straight face? Romney wouldn't recognize the True face of Liberty even if she walked up and booted him in the arse.

Lordy, child. Many of us have been 'giving them one more shot to do the right thing' for about a quarter of a century now. I'm not sure about everybody else, but my nose is getting pretty damned sore. :-)

Tell me. How many of our lifetimes do you think it will take for the Republican Establishment to get it right?

IMHO, it will take a major circumstance to *shock* them into realizing conservatives are tired of being forced into picking between socialism and socialism-lite. What that circumstance will be, only time will tell.

Only an idiot or someone who just enjoys being outraged and is not really interested in making a difference would not understand that the best bet is to get a conservative in power within the Republican party and it does happen as anyone can see today with the Tea Party successes against establishment Republicans and in the past with the Young Republicans successes against establishment Republicans.

Well, he certainly has enough experience running in different parties. He could always try Green or Libertarian and add those to his resume.

Very pithy. The problem is that you are wrong. You can ORDER a nice, clean, Conservative, Virginia ham on rye. You will not get it. You will get either Romney or Obama.

If you see no difference, fine. Remember, though, that if Obama wins re-election, he can never run for the presidency again. This means that he is free to do what he wants (especially since he doesn't think he needs Congress to do it). If Romney wins, he will have to come back to the conservative base to get re-elected. That means we have a voice at the table.

Your choice.
