(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.

Since the major media are not carrying Goode as part of their age-old strategy to quell dissenting voices from the 2 major party disasters, articles from local sources must be found.

That, of course, means there will be a lag in presenting breaking news.

For that reason, some leniency in the understanding of “breaking news” should apply, I would hope.

Good article. Unfortunately some folks seem to be willing to take Romney at face value and ignore his record. Depending on what Ron Paul accomplishes in Tampa, I may end up voting for Goode. I am certainly not voting for Romney or Obama. I am glad that Goode is getting at least a little bit of press coverage.

While we are doing ankle biters, lets be sure to include all the minor, communist, green, vegan, plankton eaters as well. They deserve to be heard spewing hatred as well.

If these people had a real following, it would be a different matter.

I think he’s right. Add homosexuals pretending marriage to the cost of social security, health care, military health, and retirement in general, and you have enormously upped the cost JUST BECAUSE of someone’s preferred method of orgasming.

The reason behind heterosexual government incentives is the potential procreativity and the known fact that moms and dads are the best source of socialization for children.

The state has an interest in encouraging the best means of providing for children, but it hasn’t a bit of interest in how someone gets their jollies.

Goode is the only real conservative in the race. He’s balanced, experienced, and right on the issues.

He is not a tree hugger, a socialist, or anything like that.

He is what we were HOPING the republican candidate would be but isn’t.

The bitter irony is that the one way the msm could guarantee the reelection of their messiah would be to promote Goode’s candidacy. But their natural response to a man like Goode is to roundly ignore him. It will be interesting to see if they ever figure it out.

Voting for Goode as well at top of ticket.
Florida has a senatorial race and I think I will be stuck with Connie Mack who tends RINO but it would be lovely to get Nelson out of this Senate seat.
I have come to same conclusion as your tag line...I can no longer vote the lesser of evils because it is still evil and nothing changes from the status quo.

We’ve been taken down this lesser-of-two-evils path for so long by the repubs that even conservatives don’t hear themselves arguing in favor of gay adoption as they support romney.

How do you compare Gore to something that predates him, to the Governor of Massachusetts and the resulting creation of homosexual “marriage” because of his administration?

Many of us do not buy the argument that a vote for anyone but Willard is detrimental in the long run to Conservatives. In fact, I personally feel it just the opposite:

I can deal with sending the Gop-e a message, while gridlocking Obamao for another 4 years (or even maybe impeachment), improving or getting majorities in both houses, and having those [R]'s resisting the socialist agenda, and a chance for a true Conservative nominee in 2016. I know things will not get too out of hand to the point of no return (i.e. looking at record firearms and ammo sales) so I cannot be scared into voting for Willard.

VS

having a socialist [R] permanently moving the party left, institutionalizing abortion, homo-marriage, open borders, gun-grabbing, anti-christianity and a nanny state as the norm for both parties, and NO CHANCE for a Conservative nominee in our lifetime. I don't see more than 1 SCOTUS appointment in the next 4 years (Ginsberg) and Obamao has used up his lib allocation, so that is not even a reason for me to vote Willard (who would just nomiate liberals anyhow like he did in MA).

The added bonus of not voting for Willard is that I get to vote my conscience.

We warned all of romney’s supporters that a man cannot run from the truth... and although people can and do evolve and change their opinions on certain things... no one... and I mean no one ever changes everything that they have been and believed in. He also cannot run from his past governing record. The TRUTH can set you free... and it can also destroy you... for the truth is the truth.

And never forget that nationally legal same-sex marriage would institutionalize same-sex couples on every rung of the society and government. From pre-schoolers being taught what the new definition of marriage is (marrying either your friend Billy or Janey, whichever one you love), to schools having to make both kinds of couples their prom king/queen, to every church and business having to treat same-sex couples the same. Whether this all would automatically come with a new marriage law, or would be “interpreted” as being part of the law by the courts, it all would happen. This would be a fundamental change in society with sweeping implications in every facet of life and ominous concerns about how the next generation of children would develop.

That's an understatement with this piece of work:

Willard last Thursday: "I support the right of homos to adopt"
Willard last Friday: "I meant to say I support laws in the books, and if there is a law in some state which allows homo adoption then I guess I support that law because it is a law"

Unfortunately, the "conservatives" left in the GOP, who have been taking the lesser of two evil stance for so long now, have pretty much become CINO's. To be sure, they are to the right of the middle of the road, GOP faithful, but not by much. But of course each individual voter has the right to cast his/her vote as they see fit. That includes those of us who will no longer cast our votes simply to put the GOP in power.

I am thinking Goode is good for me. Solid Constitutional Conservative credentials.

IMO shameless chameleon Romney has ALWAYS waffled in the direction of what will insure his next election! To me, this means he will pretend to the greatest extent possible to be conservative on family, right-to-life and SCOTUS appointments to win the 2012 election and will maintain the same conservative persona and narrative right through the 2016 reelection campaign.

The earliest date that Romney could flip again away from conservative positions would be on Jan 20 2017, IMO. With any luck by then he will have appointed two Federalist Society blessed strict constructionists to SCOTUS to replace at least one ACLU justice (Ginsberg). In contrast, failing to remove the ineligible Marxist Manchurian in a tight race by conservatives failing to vote FOR the GOP alternative could insure more ACLU justices, more abortions and total mainstreaming of the homosexualist agenda as tipping SCOTUS will permit activist leftist justices with a 5-4 majority to impose gay marriage and Roe nationwide in all states.

Failure to remove Barry ASAP will permit him to dismantle our offensive military force projection and defensive missile efforts and make our former allies drift further away from the USA setting us up for 1938 all over again...especially in the South China Sea.

GOP-e should have thought about that before cheating/manipulating the primaries and serving a s**t sandwich named Willard to Conservatives, demanding that we eat and enjoy it. In a year where a true Conservative could have easily knocked off the The Kenyan Marxist, we get (apparently) the worst candidate possible. Surely the homos, "moderates", abortionists, gun-grabbers etc... and everyone else Willard has pandered to + the LDS enterprise will more than make-up for the loss of Conservative votes?

Just to follow up on your excellent post, which I think the same about...

Histrionic, fear-driven posters are making this sound like the end of the world. That if each of us does not cast a vote for RINOmney, we are voting for Zero. This is as false as saying that each time we drink a 7up, we are actually drinking a coke. No sale.

In all likelihood, there only three options:

1. Zero wins in a landslide, like in ‘08. If so, your vote won’t count, no matter who you vote for.
2. RINOmney wins in a landslide, in which case, your vote won’t count.
3. It is a dead-heat tie - IN YOUR STATE - and only then will your vote decide your state.

Unfortunately, your vote will likely not decide the national election unless the Electoral count is a tie and you are the final state. My state has 6 million voters. The odds of my vote deciding the election are small, very small. My state likely won’t decide the Electoral College final count.

Sorry, I don’t buy the whole fear driven end times scenario. The problem isn’t Zero. The problem is that he is not opposed in Congress, scorned, sued, etc.

I am focused on electing conservatives in each office that has a conservative in the race.

Indeed. I live in a solidly red state that Maobama cannot possibly win. Whether Barack ‘Herod’ Obama wins re-election or not, I can safely vote for Goode since Romney will win the electoral votes from my state. We have 50 different presidential elections not one. Thank God for the electoral college.

Exactly. Where does the homosexualist movement think the money from future generations is going to come from if there is no future generations. Of course they’ll try to say “Gays can reproduce” to which I respond certainly. They can reproduce heterosexually just like the rest of us do. But there is no such thing as homosexual “reproduction.”

Facts seem to always ruin a good and endlessly repeated rant.

Just to review:

The MA supreme court legalized Homo marriage which Romney was against.

The court gave the state 180 days to comply.

On the last possible day, after the legislature did not act, Romney made the move to obey the court order.

If Romney is the father of homosexual marriage, then there are a lot of conservative governors (who did not ignore the court in Roe vs Wade) who are the fathers of legalized abortion.
