(Virgil)Goode: Romney ‘father of homosexual marriages’ (Constitution Party Candidate)
Augusta Free Press ^ | 12 May 12 | Augusta Free Press

Posted on 05/14/2012 10:53:24 AM PDT by xzins

Former Fifth District Congressman Virgil Goode blasted presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney as “the father of homosexual marriages” in a statement released to the news media on the eve of Romney’s visit to Liberty University this weekend.

Goode, now running for president on the Constitution Party ticket, referred to Romney’s move as Massachusetts governor to issue same-sex marriage licenses in the wake of a state-court ruling.

“Gov. Romney did not stand fast in favor of traditional marriage,” said Goode, who lost his Fifth District seat in 2008 to Democrat Tom Perriello.

Goode said he has been a “consistent supporter of defining marriage as being between one man and one woman.”

“At this point in our country’s history, we need a president who will stand firmly behind traditional marriage and the Federal Marriage Amendment. I am suspicious that Gov. Romney, if elected president, could waffle again,” Goode said.

The stakes, to Goode: “If homosexual marriages become normal across the country, the impact on states like Virginia, which prohibit gay marriage, will be huge. State taxpayers will have to pay for the expanded health insurance costs and State retirement costs. At the federal level, the impact on the Social Security Trust Fund and the Department of Defense will be significant when homosexual partners are granted the same monetary benefits that heterosexual married couples have under current Social Security law and provisions covering military spouses,” he said.

Goode is a fool, a horrible candidate, and only trying to get some publicity.

Why do we post this idiocy, except to help re-elect Obama!

Its a terrible thing to watch folks you once respected trying to justify and rationalize something that just cant be. These folks would rather attempt to manipulate reality into something comfortable for them than deal with the brutal facts.

“Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it. “ — you know who...

You and your compatriots are deluding yourselves if you think a socialist will be your savoir. Heh.. the fact that you dont even recognize him for his actions with romneycare and liberal judge appointments is troubling. What even more troubling is that you are able to willingly deceive yourself into completly forgiving the fruits of his labor because of what he is saying now to get elected.

No, Reagan would not say that. Because he would recognize the real danger of a successful re-election of Obama.

He would recognize the suicidal strategy of electing a socialist as a republican and thus removing the ONLY opposition to implementing socialist agendas.. The republican party...

Are you giving up on repealing obama-care? If you support romney ( the FATHER of obamacare ) you are...

Virgil Goode was a democrat congressman as recently as 2002.

Virgin Goode is no conservative.

Beware of the wolf in sheep’s clothes.

I have compose this litte biological descrtipion of man and woman life.. If its too much and its offending, I apologize.

See here’s the story. One time long, long, long ago, God decided to create a man and woman. First, he created a man with a special add-on call it a snake, then decided to create opposite calling a woman, with a flush lights and bush.
One day snake saw the bush, and was happy and saw flush lights and said - hmmm let me check this out, so he went to bush and went through tunnel and saw something he didn’t know and released his seed. And woof, Baraboo, abloom, 9 months later you have beautiful baby.

Now for homosexuals, and homolesbestos, playing ping pong with private parts , nothing happens.

I hope this simple explanation of nature is nice and doesn’t offend anyone. Truth is truth, though.

No, it’s not. You don’t seem to understand the concept of “casting a vote”.

Besides, I live in CA. It doesn’t matter what I do. But if I still lived in GA, I would still NEVER vote for Romney. He’s an amoral, lying, opportunistic, power-hungry, selfish, backstabbing, leftist, abortionist, amoral, homosexual-supporting socialist.

Too bad Bob Barr didn't get the Liberatarian nomination this time. This years vote would have been easy.

This time they took a left and nominated Gary Johnson

That list of peeps is interesting...

Those are about the only republicans that will join in woth democrats to enact Obamas socialist agenda. However, the republicans in the house will most likely stand firm against his agenda.



Here is but ONE example to chew on:

-February 13, 2012,

The GOP’s accession to reality on the payroll tax cut is being cast as a key victory for Democrats and President Obama. Republicans caved, the payroll tax will almost certainly be renewed, and the economy won’t take a tough hit just as the recovery’s beginning to accelerate.

But it also reveals a flaw — a potentially huge flaw — in the conservative movement’s generational strategy to roll back the federal safety net.

These might sound like two wildly disparate issues, but they’re actually variations on a years-long theme. And the outcome of the payroll tax debacle bodes poorly for the GOP on the rest of their long-run goals.

Here’s why.

For years and years, conservative elites have rested their hopes of shrinking the federal government, including its most popular programs, on the theory that if they just “starve the beast” — keep taxes low until the budget comes under enough strain that those programs have to be slashed — then Democrats will ultimately fold, rather than touch off a fiscal crisis.

Republicans have scrimmaged with this strategy over the past year. The debt limit fight was premised on the Republicans’ threat that they’d put the country’s creditworthiness at risk to force Democrats to agree to spending cuts. And Democrats basically caved.

Fast forward to the end of 2011, Republicans used the looming expiration of the payroll tax cut to demand further cuts to government services.

“There’s no debate about whether these extensions ought to be paid for,” House Speaker John Boehner said in November. But of course Republicans ruled out financing the payroll cut with a small tax on millionaires, and demanded they be paid for with spending cuts elsewhere in the budget.

When Democrats resisted, that strategy blew up in his face, the payroll tax cut nearly lapsed, and Republicans took a beating with the public.

So with the payroll tax cut set to lapse once again, the entire GOP leadership has backed off the demand that the policy be offset. Democrats weren’t going to let the GOP set the ground rules for that fight. And instead of entertaining the idea of even a small, temporary tax increase on wealthy people, Republican leaders have agreed to finance the payroll tax cut with yet more debt — over the strong objections of their own members.

Tax cuts, and benefit programs are different beasts, and that’s why Republicans have agreed to isolate the payroll holiday from other expiring provisions. But the key is that when Republicans recognized that the public was wise to them — that their tactics were putting a popular policy in jeopardy — they backed off.

The same dynamics govern the longer fight over programs like Medicare and Social Security. At some point in the months and years ahead, when policymakers are forced to weigh cuts and big reforms to those programs against higher taxes on the wealthy, Republicans will stand to own the consequences, if they push revenues off the table.

What Democrats have to do is remember how they won the fight over the payroll tax cut, and stick to the same playbook.

So, do your REALLY want to put your FAITH, TRUST and HOPE on the Weeper of the House....

....and willing to GAMBLE on the future and survival of our Republic on him?

If so, may I suggest you have another glass of Kool Aid.

So then by your standards, every conservative governor who caved rather than fight Roe vs Wade is the father of Abortion.

Nope. That would be the president at the time. RvW is a federal court.

The legislature NOT acting was preventing the issuing of marriage licenses.

Romney UNDERCUT their non-action. What's hard to understand about that?

OK. I didn’t contest your comment about your conservatism. I simply said that when you post that you should identify yourself as the person about whom you are posting.

Sorry, doesn’t wash. Goode was a cultural democrat, and during his tenure his voting record was more conservative than the republicans. As a republican his voting record was more conservative than republicans.

IOW, he did NOT fit in either of those parties.

Zell Miller is always held up as the ideal conservative democrat. Virgil Goode’s conservative rating was twice that of Millers.

But, let’s give Romney a review. Is Romney, in your opinion, a solid conservative politician?

Don’t listen to the BS. Goode was one of those born and bred democrats from the south who realized the party had left him (same as Reagan.)

Goode even voted TO IMPEACH Bill Clinton.

Want me to list the number of republican reps and senators who let Clinton off the hook for violating the rule of law?

Why do we post

"We" didn't post this. "I" did. And I did because Romney is a liberal and not a conservative.

Are you willing to tell me Romney has a solid conservative record? Here's your chance.
