Thank you Santorum, for being so concerned about my privates and wanting to dictate to me what I can think of and view in the privacy of my own home.

You know...this whole social conservatism thing..not a big fan overall



Rick Santorum declares war on pornography: I will ban hardcore porn if I’m elected President

"America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography," the former Pennsylvania senator writes. "It contributes to misogyny and violence against women. It is a contributing factor to prostitution and sex trafficking."

He demands a crackdown on the distribution of hardcore pornography on the Internet, in addition to material on cable/satellite TV, hotel/motel TV, retail shops and through the mail.

What qualifies as "hardcore" remains unclear.

Sour ce

First it was illegal porn, now its make all hardcore porn illegal, then you enforce it. shut off the net with any naughty bits showing, etc.

How is this guy basically the frontrunner for conservatives? Seriously...someone explain to me the thinking going on here for a fan of Santorum whom also has even a slight understanding of "life, liberty, and the persuit of happiness" Does that only apply if you have social conservative Amish style values, otherwise, too bad?

Get out of my bedroom!

Private?

I never understood how Prostitition is illegal,

yet PORN industry (prostitution on film/media) is legal, anyway.

With Porn, people are usually being paid for sex, too.

Hate to break it to you, but Ayatollah Rick al-Santorum jumped the shark years ago...

Ayatollah Rick hates us for our freedom

I can't believe he is that naive/stupid. He alienated a lot of women because of his views on contraceptives and abortion. The same will happen with men on this issue. Who is left for him to alienate?
Yet another reason he will never be president.

No, he won't...once he hits the mainstream and having to debate Obama...
My god, I do hope he gets the nomination just to watch that comedy show. I can only imagine what such debates will be like
Hell, Obama doesn't even have to talk...just let Rick talk the entire time...

If Gingrich gets out of the race, and Santorum gets Newts numbers, Santorum will win the nomination.

We must somehow convince Newt to get out of the race..if only for sheer comedic value.

But, if Santorum does win the Rep nomination, does this mean the reps are defaulted into irrelevancy?
Hate to say it, but Thurstin Howell III is their only hope to..well, save face (not win the election, but not totally dismiss any serious consideration of the party as a whole)

he is ment to make the chosen one palatable.

Holy moley, that's a scary guy! I went to watch that video and saw a BUTTload of other Santorum videos that I hadn't seen. I'm starting to think TPTB are keeping him in the race just to scare us into voting for Romney--and Romney already had me scared!

I kinda think most people on ATS know the word palatable... I would be surprised if a third grader didn't...

Isn't it 'meant'?


-ment suffix forming nouns, originally from Fr. and representing L. -mentum, which was added to verb stems sometimes to represent the result or product of the action. Used with English verb stems from 16c. (e.g. merriment, which also illustrates the habit of turning -y to -i- before this suffix).

Perhaps you meant.... 'meant'.


meant verb simple past tense and past participle of mean1 .


From the same source.

Also he can have my porn when he pries it from my cold, dead and hairy palms.

He's off his rocker.
It has been shown in the past that rapes and sexual assaults sky rocket when porn is not available.

If he was only concerned about cracking down on child pornography and violent S&M, I'd be OK with this. ALL porn? I don't think that's a very good idea at all.

Santorum's entire campaign has been one long shark-jumping extravaganza, this is hardly the first time he's jumped it. We are talking about the guy who said that if his daughter was involuntarily impregnated (that's the nicest way to say it) he would tell her that the child was a GIFT FROM GOD and force her to carry it to term and give birth to it! We're talking about the guy who conforms LITERALLY to an every-sperm-is-sacred policy and believes that contraception is IMMORAL. Yes that's right, to him having safe responsible sex is the EVIL thing to do.

Honestly my brain hurts just thinking about it. Either the people voting for this guy are entirely ignorant of his positions and policies or my fellow Americans are more misinformed, bigoted, and stupid than I could have possibly ever imagined.

The fact that he's still in this race, that Romney hasn't totally crushed him, is absolutely astounding. An Obama reelection is hardly the ideal choice for 2012 but at least Obama is intelligent and sane enough to make a case for himself, whereas every time I hear Santorum open his mouth it's just a lot of verbal, well, verbal Santorum.

Excuse me but wasn't it heavy metal a couple of weeks ago? Now pr0n? Someone needs to sit him down for an hour and explain the 1st Amendment to him. The sad fact is that some will vote for him because they aren't aware of that. Doesn't matter anyway. Romney is still comfortably in the lead and watch where his #'s go when the vote goes back north.

Porn is a lucrative business that turns people into meat to be sold in the market, and those who pay for it, and get paid to do it are nothing but people who turn themselves into sellable meat products.

That being said, making it illegal isn't going to stop it, if he thinks he can just put a lid on it like a can of worms, he's absolutely delusional. People should chose to see the ethical wrongs in portraying humans like meat products and leave it alone by themselves. You can't teach it to them by putting laws against it.

WHAT A JOKE this idiot is.

Of ALL the things MASSIVELY WRONG with the world today, this IDIOT focuses on a NATURAL act between two consenting human beings who are not hurting each other none whatsoever. A totally NATURAL (and very pleasant) act between adults.

Republicans are OBSESSED with what folks do in their bedrooms. Yet they are perfectly fine with SLAUGHTERING and KILLING mass amounts of women and children around the world.

Get a clue folks, stop electing these BASTARDS.

CP is already illegal and is cracked down on. "violent S&M"" is consentual adults doing what they want to do.
See, this is where you fall into the cracks...anything you are opposed to.

How about...whatever consenting adults do, is legal. be it soft kissing techniques, or the most violent and vile sadistic videos imaginable...if its consensual, its not your business, my business, etc...

What you are saying is that...you want the stuff you like to be legal, but anything you don't like, even when consenting adults are the only ones involved, should be illegal....

I suspect you didn't even realize you are programmed to scorn things outside of your like...all Ricky needs to do is push your tolerance a bit. Find the principle, not the line in the sand, and then you will be good.

Why are you attacking my views? I enjoy watching normal porn.

I'm opposed to things that are dispicable.
Yes, child porn is illegal. There should not be one child porn site up and running, but you know they're there. If they were serious about cracking down on it, they'd be arresting everybody, yet it goes on.

Regarding violent S&M, I'm talking about brutal stuff. Not your average whips and butt slaps. I'm talking about stuff that is seriously degrading to women.

I really don't care if you agree with my views or not. I'm a woman and I've never had a man complain while watching porn with me.

Santorum is SCARY... not that I believe he has a snow balls chance in _ e l l of being elected, but that there are people out there that support his insane, predjudiced and hypocritical beliefs.
Someone please send him anti-psychotic drugs before he carves a X on his forehead and sends some of his minions to kill a bunch of people.l

Santorum won't become president because he's nuts, and Romney won't make it because even though Santorum's nuts, he still can't crush him. Newt won't be president because...well...he's Newt and couldn't get women votes. RP doesn't have the support of the GOP base and also won't make it.

In short, Obama will take this one down. It's just whether he'll have to work a bit for it (Romney), or not at all (Santorum). If Santorum runs against him, it will be like watching a months-long Colbert Report...awesome comedic value. Hell, I hope Santorum runs against him.
