JClifford at Irregular Times: What’s The Difference Between Virgil Goode and Mitt Romney?

In an article at Irregular Times, JClifford writes

We’ve written a good deal about Virgil Goode in the past, but about his record in Congress, not what he’s proposing as a candidate for President. So, I decided to take a look into his campaign.

I came away with the following question: Just what makes Virgil Goode so different from Mitt Romney? The point of a third party candidacy is supposed to be to offer a dramatically different option for voters, unlike what the Democrats and Republicans are willing to provide.

There are a few policy differences between Virgil Goode and Mitt Romney. They are:

– Virgil Goode supports ending NAFTA and other free trade agreements. Mitt Romney does not.

– Virgil Goode wants to protect Social Security with investment, rather than Wall Street privatization schemes.

– Virgil Goode is campaigning against fictional plans to dissolve the United States of America through the creation of a North American Union.

And

On most of the issues, Virgil Goode is in strong alignment with Mitt Romney. Are the differences that exist enough to justify Virgil Goode’s campaign for president as a third party candidate?

If there are members of the Constitution Party out there, I’d like to hear about Virgil Goode from your perspective. What makes his candidacy matter to you?

You can answer here.

    First, I am not a member of the Constitution Party, but I know one thing, viz., that Virgil
    Goode does not support same sex so-called
    marriage as Obama and Romney due.

    Unlike Romney, both of Virgil Goode parents
    where United States Citizens at his birth, This
    makes Virgil Goode a Natural Born Citizen and
    Romney and Obama not qualified to be POTUS.
    Note that Mitt Romney’s father was born in Mexico and was not a United States Citizen at
    his birth.

    I expect Gary Odom will be singing this Ode come November 7, 2012 (day after the election)
    to the tune of the Irish Jaunting Car.

    “Oh. I’m a GOODE ole rebel, that just what I am,
    and for this Obama Nation, I do not give a damn.
    I’m glad I voted again’er. I only wished we’d won.
    I aint asked any pardon for anything I’ve done.”

    American Independent Party of California

    Romney does not support same sex marriage, and Obama only gives it lip service (no pun intended).

    Any citizen who is born in the US, rather than naturalized, is a natural born citizen. Both Romney and Obama are natural born US citizens and are constitutionally qualified for the office. However, they are both Grade A Ass Clowns who will have violated their oath of office within minutes if not sooner, and every single day for the remaining four years on multiple occasions.

    Wobbly Rails,

    Please explain the comment “An citizen who is born in the US, rather than naturalized, is a natural born citizen.”

    Let’s take Midway Island in the Pacific Ocean.
    The State of Hawai’i has issued 58 birth certificates to person born on Midway Islands.

    They are guano islands and have never been part
    of Hawai’i. How would you reguard person born
    on Midway Islands in the Pacific Ocean? Are they Citizens of the United States because the
    State of Hawai’i gave certificate of birth to an
    alien? Obama is a alien, his mother was only
    18 years of age at his birth.

    I recall the conversation I had with Dr. Alan
    Keyes at a hotel in Concord, New2 Hampshire
    in December, 2006 when we talked about the
    alien status of Obama.

    John McCain is also an alien because his parents
    were never married, prior to his birth at Colon,
    Republic of Panama.

    Can’t the major political parties find natural born
    citizen for the office of POTUS?

    Sincerely, Mark Seidenberg, Vice Chairman,
    American Independent Party of California

    I just might, Mark, I just might.

    Should we be looking forward to an album of Johnny Rebel covers and “The White Marches On” as well?

    “On most of the issues, Virgil Goode is in strong alignment with Mitt Romney.

    This just couldn’t be further from the truth! Virgil Goode may be targeting four primary issues, but he is running on the Constitution Party platform, which is about as far as the global elitist Romney as is possible. I don’t even know where to start. Where has Romney called for getting rid of the Dept. of Education, for ending foreign aid (including Egypt AND Israel), for bringing the troops home from around the world including especially afghanistan; Ending the Fed; getting out of the UN; Stopping Agenda 21; for balancing the budget NOW and whole lot more. I just don’t have time to sit here, writing endlessly.

    Goode’s candidacy is all about giving people a real choice in 2012 and for laying the foundation for the future of the Constitution Party which is only 20 years old, ( just half the age of the Libertarian Party). Virgil Goode is already planning to help build the Constitution Party for the future. He will be speaking at our post election meeting in St. Louis and is planning to participate in our Spring 2013 meeting in Baltimore.

    There seems to be some idea out there that a candidate can only be “real” for our party if he is a clone of Ron Paul. Nonsense…and this comes from someone who revered Ron Paul.

    Willard Romney is the son of George Romney and has never apologised for his father’s incredibly vicious treatment of Barry Goldwater, the last independent conservative to be nominated by the GOP, in 1964. The Romneys are everything that is wrong with this country and the world. I can’t even imagine Willard Romney sitting foot in Rocky Mount, Virginia, Virgil Goode’s hometown, where real Americans and not pin striped Wall Street International Bankers live.

    If Goode can’t win, I must say that I hope Willard Romney does win and that he gets a GOP congress so that the truth will come out him and the whole rotten, corrupt GOP pigsty.

    “If Goode can’t win, I must say that I hope Willard Romney does win and that he gets a GOP congress so that the truth will come out him and the whole rotten, corrupt GOP pigsty.”

    It won’t make any difference.

    George Bush Jr had a Republican Congress for a number of years. You would think the Tea Partiers would have learned their lesson, but no such luck.

    It simply makes no difference if Bush (oops, I mean Obama) or Romney wins, or who controls Congress.

    The only valid reason to have anything to do with politics is to vote against both of them, and even cheering for either one of the big two to win is a waste.

    Thus far, it seems the Occupy movement has resisted being captured by the forces of Obamatrony far more successfully than the Tea Party has withstood the Republican takeover.
