    The Daily Caller ^ | 11/28/2015 | SCOTT GREER
    Former Republican Virginia Congressman Virgil Goode endorsed Donald Trump for president earlier this month and The Daily Caller caught up with the ex-representative to find out why he feels the flamboyant billionaire is the best choice for the White House. "The primary reason is his good positions opposing illegal immigration and reducing legal immigration," Goode told TheDC. "Mr. Trump understands how important that is to stopping the constant flow of illegals across the border. He also wants to mandate e-verify which would help keeping illegals from getting U.S. jobs." While in Congress, Goode was a strong proponent of border security...

    Former congressman Virgil Goode Jr. will remain on Virginias presidential ballot after state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II concluded an investigation into fraud allegations leveled at Goode by the state Republican Party. Cuccinelli found, according to a news release from his office, that while there may have been certain irregularities, nothing he examined would prevent Goode from being certified for the Virginia ballot in the upcoming November presidential election. Goode represented southwest Virginia in the state Senate and then in Congress for a combined 36 years, as a Democrat, an Independent and then a Republican. Now he is running for...

    ...Virgil Goode has long supported a bill to audit the Federal Reserve, which recently cleared the House. He advocates currency that is real and backed by gold or silver. Goode champions fair and equitable opportunity, but its up to you to use it. Government cannot ensure equal results because every individual differs; An ardent proponent of balancing the budget, our deficits Goode insists, stem from spending. Taxes should be simple and fair Im not for increasing income taxes; if we even have an income tax. The candidate laments too much federal involvement in our lives offering as an example...

    Anyone who visits this website, with any amount of frequency, has seen Posts and comments re: the candidacy of Virgil Goode for President on the Constitution Party ticket. I agree that the Constitution Party is AWESOME!!!! I wish they were a Major Party. After 2012, I'd love to see a movement, by Conservatives, to make that their "Party of choice". But, I don't see that happening before November 6, 2012. Now, my poll question for ALL FReepers is this: Do you think that Virgil Goode will pull enough votes from Romney in the Battleground States such as FL, VA, OH,...

    Ben Tribbett, one of the state's top bloggers, got me thinking yesterday. He is known as the guy behind the highly rated political blog Not Larry Sabato. But Ben deserves to be even better known as one of the state's best gurus on election statistics down to the precinct level. Ben has done a lot of mentally "running the numbers" on the potential impact of former Congressman Virgil Goode's run for President as the nominee for the Constitution Party here in Virginia. Ben is likely - and hopefully soon - to do a blog post an Obama-Romney-Goode race here in...

    While many on the right fear that Constitution Party presidential candidate Virgil Goode might just draw enough votes in his native Virginia to tip the Old Dominions 14 electoral votes from Mitt Romney to Barack Obama, the former six-term congressman made it clear he doesnt care. Goode, in fact, feels that in many ways, for conservatives, it might be better to have Obama as president next year rather than Romney. The 65-year-old Goode spoke to Human Events last week as he and his supporters were in the process of gathering the 10,000 signatures they need to submit before the Aug....
