Virgil Hamlin Goode Jr. (Born October 17th, 1946) is an American politician who served in the United States Army from 1969 to 1975, the Virginia Senate from 1979 to 1997, and the House of Representatives from 1997 to 2009. In 2012, he sought the Constitution Party nomination for President of the United States, and chose Jim Clymer as his running mate. The Goode-Clymer ticket ultimatley placed 5th (Behind Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Gary Johnson, and Jill Stein) was able to obtain 122,000 votes (about .09% of all votes.)
Many of his views fall in line with his party affiliation. Goode is vigorously opposed to immigration, abortion, same-sex marriage, obamacare, and free-trade, and favors term-limits, tax cuts, maintaining the status quo, gun-rights, and abolishing the federal department of education.
