Thank you for visiting the Constitution Party of Iowa's Candidates area.
The Constitution Party of Iowa is working to raise our fellow Americans’ awareness that there is a choice other than Republicans and Democrats to fill our elected representative positions. In stark contrast to the RNC and DNC, we are the only party which is completely Pro-Life, Pro-States’ Rights, Pro-Second Amendment, Pro-Constitutional, and Pro-Limited Government. We are against- illegal immigration and open borders, against- U.S. policy being dictated by the United Nations, against- undeclared unconstitutional wars (such as Iraq and Afghanistan), and against- free trade and all international trade agreements such as NAFTA & GATT.
Our Founding Fathers created a Republic as our form of government and were specific about its authority and limitations. The Democrats and the Republicans have over-stepped those boundaries creating today's conditions of out-of-control debt, Presidents using executive orders to legislate, judges crafting laws from the bench instead of interpreting the laws made by the legislature, and the legislature unconstitutionally spending our money faster than we can earn it.
So we'd like to introduce you to our presidential candidate, Virgil Goode. He is a former Virginia State Senator and has served in the US House of Representatives. (Virgil's bio can be found here). Unlike Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, Virgil believes that the Constitution is our governing document for a proper and responsible government. Let's take a quick comparative look at the three candidates.
There are many, many issues that concern us all and only a few of those have been discussed during the debates between Romney and Obama. Virgil has taken a stance over the years on those issues and backed up his ideals with his votes. Here is a list of just some of those issues and why he takes the position that he does.
If you've turned on the television at some point and time in the last 6 months odds are that you have been bombarded with at least one Romney and one Obama ad. One is played and then the next ad is for the other guy and they usually include some video footage of the other candidate speaking. Why is that? Because seeing is believing and when you actually see and hear someone speaking, it carries a tremendous amount of weight in the arena of public opinion. So I present to you two links, the first is to Virgil's website with some of his most recent videos and the second to Youtube.
We believe that Virgil is the best person to be President in these troubled times to get the government back on track and to protect our Rights as guaranteed by the Constitution. One of those Rights is that "We the People" decide how and who will represent us.
One of our most powerful Rights is the Right to vote. It's important that we are informed voters when we go into the booth on November 6th. Virgil Goode is on the ballot in 26 states, a write-in candidate in 13 states and working to be a write-in candidate in 5 more states. That's enough to win the electoral college. (Map)
A third party can't win the election you say? Ronald Reagan once said "government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem". So who is the government? For the last 160 years the government has been Republicans and Democrats. When one party gets out of line the other gets voted in during the next election. Back and forth, back and forth. Yet the laws become more restrictive, the taxes continue to increase, inflation continues while the value of the dollar decreases. The party in control determines who runs the various departments and who gets nominated for Judicial positions. Are you happy with the government?
Neither of these two party's have addressed the problems we now face. In fact the politicians are so on top of things that they need to "pass the bill to find out what's in it". And so long as we continue to put these two party's back into the government our problems will continue. Their goal is not to serve the People according to the Constitution but to be in power. It's as simple as that.
"I don't want to waste my vote on a third party." Mitt Romney has said that he wants to repeal Obamacare and replace it. Where in the Constitution does it say that government is supposed to provide medical care to its Citizens? Mitt Romney also said during the first debate that he would look at defunding programs if they weren't important enough for us to borrow money from China to pay for it. The Constitution is specific and clear about what the government is allowed to spend money for.
By voting for either Romney or Obama I'm throwing away my vote because it will simply keep the status quo. While there are good people in both party's, both party's have failed you and me by not protecting our Constitutional Republic. Politics first, People last.
Whatever the outcome on November 7th, I will have no regrets by voting for the right person, Virgil Goode. I choose to end the cycle of back and forth or choosing the lesser of two evils. We deserve better. Our Constitution says so.
