Presidential candidate Virgil Goode is a former congressman from Virginia. Vice presidential candidate Jim Clymer is the immediate past national chairman of the Constitution Party. The Independent American Party is the Nevada state affiliate of the national Constitution Party.

Goode was a member of Ron Paul’s Liberty Caucus when he served in the U.S. House of Representatives. He was chosen as the Independent American Party’s presidential candidate at the National Convention in Nashville, Tennessee in April.

The Independent American Party also filed the names of the party’s presidential electors in order to vote in the Electoral College.

“Now the people of Nevada have a real choice for president, not just the twin party candidates that offer us more of the same,” Wagner said.


Independent American Party Holds State Nominating Convention On Saturday In Capital

CARSON CITY – The Independent American Party will hold its State Nominating Convention here at the Plaza Hotel and Conference Center, 801 South Carson Street, on Saturday starting at 9 a.m.

The Independent American Party will nominate state and local candidates for the 2012 election, update the platform and elect state officers at the convention.

Richard Mack, the former sheriff of Graham County Arizona, and a Republican candidate for the 21st Congressional District in Texas, will open the convention. Orlean Koehle, state president of the California Eagle Forum, will speak at noon on the topic of “Agenda 21, Destroying our Liberty and our Sovereignty.”

“We had an historic year in 2010 with 54 state and local candidates, three who were elected and one who was re-elected,” said IAP State Chairman John Wagner. “We are the third largest party in Nevada and we are building for the future. People are dissatisfied, because it doesn’t seem to matter which party they vote for they get the same thing.”

The party had nearly 50,000 active registered voters as of January of this year, according to the Secretary of State’s Office.

“The twin parties, Republicans and Democrats, have given us a floundering economy, fewer jobs, higher taxes, more bankrupting wars, destroyed the value of our currency through debt and inflation, and failed to protect our borders,” he said. “They have jeopardized our constitutionally protected rights to privacy, due process, and trial by jury, most recently with the Defense Authorization Act.

“We offer voters a new vision, a return to constitutionally limited government, which protects individual liberties, our families and our pocketbooks and we invite those interested in liberty to join us,” Wagner said.
