Goode makes complete ass of self
Anti-Muslim letter goes out to hundreds - not all are amused
BY ERIKA HOWSARE
Our congressman, Virgil Goode, stands by his anti-Islamic rhetoric: "...If American citizens don't wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode position on immigration there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Koran.
Brace yourself for the following letter, shared with C-VILLE by John Cruickshank, chair of the local Sierra Club chapter. Representative Virgil Goode (www.house.gov/goode) told us, through his press secretary, I wrote the letter. I think it speaks for itself.
Congress of the United States
House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515-4605
December 7, 2006
Mr. John Cruickshank
7 S Dr.
Earlysville, VA 22936
Dear Mr. Cruickshank:
Thank you for your recent communication. When I raise my hand to take the oath on Swearing In Day, I will have the Bible in my other hand. I do not subscribe to using the Koran in any way. The Muslim Representative from Minnesota was elected by the voters of that district and if American citizens dont wake up and adopt the Virgil Goode position on immigration there will likely be many more Muslims elected to office and demanding the use of the Koran. We need to stop illegal immigration totally and reduce legal immigration and end the diversity visas policy pushed hard by President Clinton and allowing many persons from the Middle East to come to this country. I fear that in the next century we will have many more Muslims in the United States if we do not adopt the strict immigration policies that I believe are necessary to preserve the values and beliefs traditional to the United States of America and to prevent our resources from being swamped.
The Ten Commandments and In God We Trust are on the wall in my office. A Muslim student came by the office and asked why I did not have anything on my wall about the Koran. My response was clear, As long as I have the honor of representing the citizens of the 5th District of Virginia in the United States House of Representatives, The Koran is not going to be on the wall of my office. Thank you again for your email and thoughts.
Virgil H. Goode, Jr.
70 East Court Street
Rocky Mount, Virginia 24151
Cruickshank had never communicated with Goodes office about Muslim immigration or official uses of the Koran. According to Goodes office, Goode had received a flood of e-mails from constituents in response to newly elected Minnesota Representative Keith Ellisons declaration that he would use the Koran, not the Bible, when being sworn into Congress next month. This letter was Goodes response to those e-mails; Goodes office says Cruickshank received the letter in error.
This article is from 2006. Goode just accepted the Constitution Party nomination for President.
So, Goode doesn’t want illegals from who-knows-where bringing stupidity to our shores.
I think I can see that point of view.
We have more than enough home grown idiots.
Go Goode !
Charlottesville is a nice university town, but it’s populated with artsy fartsy liberals. No surprise that they would be offended.
My first experience with Virgil Goode was watching him give a speech on the floor of the house about an illegal alien who had been arrested for drunk driving 17 times before the accident that killed people.
He’s got my vote.
I voted third party the last two presidential elections and likely will again. It is still early & I want to see more of his views, but so far so Goode.
Ok, not seeing a problem here.
This sounds like the guy I could vote for in Nov. What are his Pro-Life views.
Abortion: In the United States House of Representatives, I had a consistent pro-life voting record and in 2008 the National Right to Life Political Action Committee commended me “for your 100 percent pro-life voting record throughout your twelve years of service in the U.S. House of Representatives”. As President I would continue to oppose abortion and would submit a budget to Congress with zero funding for planned parenthood and any other similar entities.
Sounds Goode to me...
Will he be on the ballot in CT?
I can't tell about Connecticut, but they do have a local party in your state.

I have supported the Constitution Party in the past; and may do so again...Goode would make a much better president than either Zero or Romnuts...
If Romney is the GOP nominee, I will vote third party for the first time in my life this November and my vote will go to Goode. He's a helluuva lot better candidate than the two we're expecting to be on the ballot.
GOOD for GOODE!
