Of course you can :-)

You can write your own Python interpreter, in Python, and add a goto to it.

You can use while or for loops, which are like goto, only they have all
the advantages and none of the disadvantages.

The same goes for continue and break, and try...except blocks: they
are safe, tame gotos, not wild, dangerous ones that are out of control. 

You can call functions. Functions are implemented at the machine code
level with the assembly language equivalent of a goto.

Or you can tell us what problem you want to solve with a goto, and we'll
tell you the proper way to solve it.
