Virgil Goode - We Placed Clear Winner in the Third Party Debate

Virgil was the only one stressing "States Responsibility" and is running as close as one can to the Constitution Party Principles, as well as to the Constitution itself.

I did not hear that stressed by the other candidates.

Between Gary Johnson's empowering the federal government with a even more invasive Unconstitutional "FairTax" (to replace all other "unconstitutional" taxes);

Fairtax - A FLAT PERCENTAGE UNENUMERATED Tax that allows the federal government to define what is and what is not a "business' in your state, then simply changes the IRS into a FEDERAL "BUSINESS" REGULATORY BUREACRACY i.e. A "BUY SELL AND TRADE TAX";

Further, the "Fairtax", like the UNENUMERATED FLAT PERCENTAGE "income tax", increases money to the federal government with an increase in the private sector wealth Automatically "WITHOUT CONSENT OR OVERSIGHT".

Falsely espousing that the IRS will be removed and using other libertarian issues to sell the "FairTax" is a "Real FRAUD!"

Ron Paul knows this, that's why Ron Paul proposes getting rid of the income tax (and other unconstitutional taxes as well) ALTOGETHER and replace it with >>> NOTHING! ZERO! ZIP! NADA!

The Original Constitution limited collecting taxes through an ENUMERATED TARIFF under the "General Welfare Clause" for 2 things ONLY: National Defense & National Debt ... "IN CONSEQUENCE OF THIS POWER". Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788. Read it!

The Green party & Justice party just shifts the income and other unconstitutional taxes from military to more union school jobs, more handouts insuring the federal power remain over the states...

The Ratifying Conventions (See Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788) define the meaning of the words Constitution:

"They (the federal government can make "NO REGULATION" that MAY effect the citizens of the "UNION AT LARGE" "

"They (the federal government) can arrogate NO NEW POWER outside the Original Compact .... NOT EVEN BY ONE STEP past the VERY LIMITED DELEGATED POWERS.

"They (the federal government) can prosecute "ONLY 4 CRIMES", "AND NO OTHER CRIMES WHATSOEVER" Thomas Jefferson, Kentucky Resolutions #2 paragraph (found on our Suggested Reading list)

The drug issue is an issue that is a State issue, not a federal.

I think this is where Virgil Goode needed to be more descriptive as to if federal money was used, how it would be directed to the states.

But in reality, if money that should not be taken by the states in the first place, was left in the states, the states could both decide and deal with the issues themselves.

If left to the states, I doubt the allowance of mind altering and dangerous drugs would be treated much different by the States than it is with the federal government today (within the states); with the possible difference that marijuana might be allowed in some.

It would rightly remove the federal policing hand out of the states. This would be Constitutionally Correct as in the Ratifying Convention mentioned above, it clearly states that the federal government cannot govern police outside the 10 miles square of Washington DC, NOR prosecute more than those 4 crimes (piracy on the high seas counterfeit, law of nations & treason) Drugs is not any of these, therefor the federal government is acting without authority and can never be given that authority by the states by any means without violating the Constitution.

On this point Virgil Goode should follow the Constitution.
