Virgil Goode makes presidential ballot in Virginia
The Washington Post ^ | September 4, 2012 | Ben Pershing

Posted on 09/04/2012 2:13:59 PM PDT by Eagle Forgotten

Former congressman Virgil Goode Jr. has qualified for the presidential ballot in Virginia, the State Board of Elections ruled Tuesday, adding a potential obstacle to Republican Mitt Romney’s hopes of winning the pivotal state.

The state Republican party has already challenged the eligibility of Goode, who is the Constitution Party’s nominee, and could still get him knocked off the ballot.

I understand why some Freepers, stressing their opposition to Obama, advocate voting for Romney and then, on the day after the election, beginning to work to build a third party or to purge the RINOs from the Republican Party.

Unfortunately, if we keep voting for RINOs then the GOP-e will keep nominating them. The third party is here now.

If nothing else, Goode's presence on the ballot will help keep Romney honest. There's a limit to how much he can shake the Etch-a-Sketch when there's a conservative running against him.

“There's a limit to how much he can shake the Etch-a-Sketch when there's a conservative running against him.”

Is Goode really a conservative or is he a Soros/Obama stooge? If he is such a good conservative why doesn't he run against a liberal in an election lower on the ticket instead of running a race he can't possibly win and his only effect will be to help Obama win Virginia and the presidency.

Anyone who thinks as you do has not paid attention. Obama has all ready made it clear he plans to rule by decree if he is reelected. We don’t have the luxury of being purists this year. You have a choice to live on your feet or die on your knees. Goode is a useless fool who does ONE thing, help elect Obama.

Yeah he’s going to keep Romeny “honest”, sure that’s the way to do it.

This guy must be an absolute creep of a stealth disruptor, who with no chance of being elected whatsoever would endeavor to deliver a key state to Obama.

And fools are going to tell us what a great service this is?

We really have zero time for this nonsense. Virgil Goode is an absolute nothing burger except maybe he can reelect a communist president.

We have a de facto binary political system. If you are a potiential Romney voter and vote for goode, you are voting for 0bama - in the same way the FL Nader voters selected W in 00.

Well, if voting for Goode re-elects Obama, then we can all watch him try to make that $16T national debt $32T by 2016. I’m giving good odds he can do it!

Goode is a former rat congressman. He’ll likely pull more voters from Obama than Romney.

There’s also this:

Rep. Virgil Goode allowed the producer of a gay erotic film to use his district phone line to promote the film:

Goode will split the pervert vote.

R&R will take Virginia ;)

That is an excellent point! If 3rd party candidate is sincere about actually winning, run in a race they can win. Otherwise, they are purposefully being a spoiler.

This election is realistically between a Republican whom is far more conservative than the marxist incumbent.

It’s Obama v. Romney. Romney is the only way we defeat Obama. No, he wasn’t my choice in the primary.

This Virgil Goode only serves to help Obama. Ryan served with Goode in Congress. Perhaps he can convince him to drop out of the race or the ballot in VA.

Oh noes the sky is falling. I'm so beyond tired of fear tactics for votes. Perhaps the gay old party can come up with decent candidates instead of sandbagging them and forcing the likes of Dole, Mccain't, Romney, and Bush (George, George, and Jeb)

You have a choice to live on your feet or die on your knees.

Third option, I'll walk on my own two feet and when the time comes die with a rifle in my arms.

Goode’s presence on the ballot will keep Romney honest? Good grief. We all know what it will really do -— take away GOP votes. I don’t like RINOs either, but let us at least agree here to speak the truth about political reality.

Bush won in 2000 thanks to votes siphoned off by Ralph Nader. Nader didn’t keep Gore honest.

This country is going to have an economic collapse if Obama gets 4 more years. I don’t know if Romney can save it, but at least we’d have a shot. That means more government control, martial law, shut down of talk radio, censorship of the internet, food and energy shortages, and rationing. Five million more illegal alien voters for the RATS will rig the game for a generation. Thinking that another Reagan will come from the Obama disaster is folly. We may well not have a country left.

Goode's party will have no impact whatsoever outside of Virginia. Unfortunately for Romney (and America) losing Virginia could be all it takes to give Obama a second term.

Goode and those supporting his crusade are fools (unless these supporters are democrats, in which case they know exactly what they're doing).

Reagan was a former democrat during the 40’s and 50’s. That’s a far cry from someone who was a dem in the 1990’s after the 1960’s radicalization of that party.

That's simply not true. Poll after poll shows Goode pulling away Romney voters when his name is added in to the race. A recent poll had Virginia going to Obama 50-45 and 50-43 when Goode's name was included.

He is not pulling voters away from Obama.

Romney or Obama will be the next President. Romney agrees with you 85% of the time, Obama agrees with you 0% of the time

It is absurd to think it “smart” to help elect someone who disagrees with your politics 100% of the time.

Either you are a fraud who is lying about his real political agenda or your are a complete political idiot.

You're gonna love Obama's judicial picks, from the High Court on down, especially when they overturn every pro-life initiative that crosses their bench.

Oh well, at least your conscience will be clean.

Interesting. But if you don’t take meaningful action to remove Obama from power you’ll be morally responsible for everything he does.

Inaction will not save you. You are effectively giving him your consent and the blood of his victims will be on your hands.

Romney is not the 75% then I'm your guy that Reagan was talking about.

Romney is pro-abortion, pro-fag "marriage," a gun grabber, and favors socialist marriage. Even religiously, he is fundamentally different than me. I don't and won't support any of those.

In fact, I disagree with all of those positions 100% of the time. Even if you put an (R) after their name.

And no, I don't support or trust Goode either.

Either you are a fraud who is lying about his real political agenda or your are complete political idiot.

My agenda is I'm tired of the "eight years from now candidates."

Weren't we supposed to be voting for Palin this election by voting for McCain in 2008? I remember giving (read pissing away) money the campaign and trying to get the word out in 2008.

Maybe the GOPE has recognized you're the political idiot, or as Stalin would say, a "useful idiot."

So you think it is morally right to help Obama win. There is nothing morally wrong with choosing the better of two imperfect candidates, or the lesser of two evils.

Obama vs. Pol Pot or Stalin would be a difficult moral choice.

Obama vs. Romney is a no brainer.

I am against Obama. Sadly, I am also against Romney. Purity has nothing to do with it, at least in the sense you mean. What part of not voting for a pro-abortion, anti-marriage candidate makes me a purist? And, before you ask, I do not believe his recent protestations that he has changed. He has no good track record of telling the truth.

You may think the third party is here now but you are so sorely mistaken. Delude yourself all you want...VG will NOT even poll enough to move the needle on the graph.... less than 1% nationwide. But of course if all you want is a spoiler then you are well set.

Perhapos you don’t remember the fate of Ross Perot? He actually had a following and the money to do something. All he did was get Clinton elected with 43% of the vote. And that worked out sooooo well

“Third option, I'll walk on my own two feet and when the time comes die with a rifle in my arms.”

That's very dramatic. But I want my children to have a chance at a good job. I want to be able to sell my house for what it was worth 2007 or more. I don't want to hear another story of someone I know laid off from a $80,000/year job and now working for $12 an hour.I am sick and tired of going to the emergency room with my child and having to wait hours because it is crammed with illegals. I am sick and tires of seeing good people lose their jobs and their homes. I am sick and tired of seeing thugs and criminals do whatever they want.

You might not care if things continue to get worse but I do.

If Obama is reelected this country will be destroyed. $16 trillion of debt will go to $25 or $30 trillion. Our debt will be downgraded. Businesses will be afraid to hire.

I want to work. I want my children to work. I want to keep my own money.

Obama vs. Stalin would be a tough choice. Obama vs. Romney is a no brainer.
