Virgil Goode, the 2012 Constitution Party presidential candidate, called me back the other day in response to my inquiry about the “fiscal cliff.”
Goode feels the fiscal cliff is not as bad as Obamacare, but will cause some problems, especially the increased taxes. But it is not as big of a problem as media is saying.
Goode says Obamacare a big problem for job creation. Small businesses do not want to hire because of Obamacare. He turned the conversation to decreasing legal immigration and stopping illegal immigration. He opposes the idea of stapling a green card to tech grad diplomas. He feels those college places should go to Americans in the first place.
Asked how his immigration focus fits with the Constitution, Goode rejected that. He is not saying restricting immigration is part of the Constitution. Rather he thinks immigration is a bigger issue than the Constitution, and that we won’t have to worry about the Constitution if immigration destroys the country.
Pressed on constitutional issues – he said we should not become involved in foreign conflicts without a declaration of war.
