I have no respect for people of porn industry and supporters of it.
Infact, a rapist is more moral than them and i will hang every rapist.

Stupidest thing I have ever read in my entire life.
I don't intend to make sense to everyone.
I can't expect a sensible argument on morality from liberals.

Nope. With rape, there is an actual victim. No victim with voluntary pornography. No victim = no crime.

You have a pretty messed up view on morality.

The GOP never intended to win this election. The proof is who they put up for candidates. Not one of these people currently running is in any shape or form electable.

2016, that is when you are going to see a strong conservative run for office. Obama is gonna win this election, just because they know that if they get the office now, they won't stand a chance in 2016.

The GOP is still in the midst of restructuring after their colossal defeat in 2008, the GOP brand was nearly destroyed by the incompetence of the GOP party leaders at that point. This is why you saw the rise of the fascist brand of conservatism called the TEA Party. Now, conservatives want to edge these people back into the mainstream flock, and they are doing it using idiot candidates like Santorum here.

None of them are meant to win, they are just there to bring the crazy ones back into line with the core conservatives. Next election, you are going to start seeing more moderate sane conservatives out on the field, and they will probably win the 2016 election.

Over the next 4 years, Obama is going to become more aggressive in his policies because he's not going to be concerned with another re election, and that's when the conservatives will have their chance to actually bring to the forefront someone who can win an election against the democratic idiot they put up there.

I have an opinion about what you're stating.

You're incredibly wrong in your views of men and women in America. Women have traditionally been sexually repressed, and to some extent still remain so. A man who has sex with 10 women is a "stud", whereas a woman who has sex with 10 men is a "slut". There's a cultural stigma that's associated with sexual women ( as you've said in a previous post by stating "if you act like a slut, you get treated like a slut" ) that is perpetrated, and maintained, by people like you.

And to the poster who keeps bringing up the past and how there has been a rise in sexual violence towards women in the last 50 years due to the sexual revolution.

Your views are completely wrong and based on nothing that amounts to factual reality or history.

100 years ago women were considered property. They didn't have the right to go report their rape to the police, because they were considered owned objects, almost to a degree of being slaves. If women didn't have sex with their husbands on demand, they were beaten, divorced, or whatever. 500 years ago during what you're heralding as the awesome times of Anglo-saxon Christendom, they were just killed. Did you skip the entire chapter on English history that dealt with Henry VIII? What you are proposing is literally the culture that's seen in Islamic countries like Iran, and Saudi Arabia. As another poster stated, if this type of culture is your desire then please move to one of those two countries. ( It shouldn't be that hard of a culture change for you, as you already worship the same god, and it's just a few details that you'll have to change in the cult behaviors to fit in )

Now back on-topic. This was the dumbest thing that Santorum could have done. Pornography one of the largest industries in this country and to want to make it illegal is the same as trying to push this nation back into another prohibition period. We all know how well that worked.

I sure would like to check the internet history of Santorums laptop
Bet he's into some right weird #, probably midget porn! But yano, i would argue that porn isnt just for men anymore soon they'll have to ban it because its misandrist and incites violence against men!
The real question here is why is the political system of america attacking porn?? What's the agenda?

You know, he probably frequents some of the sickest and nastiest porn sites available. It's usually the case with these idiots who want to censor everything. But what a dumb issue to focus on in a presidential election.

I was about to point that out. He is just trying to create another blackmarket for our shadowgovernments to corner and make boatloads of cash on.

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

And there it is. This is not about Porn, this is about attacking the internet. Porn is just one of the bogey-men they will use to do so.

I do think access to pornography on the internet is way to easy for kids. But then, I think kids should be raised by their parents, and not the state. So bring down the cost of living so families can afford to live off one person's income. And that will be the first step to seeing a dramatic improvement in society without having to resort to more laws more restrictions.

Does that really surprise you? Not too long ago they were using kiddie porn as their excuse, no one said # about it. Now they move on to regular porn, if no one says # about it again, it will be something else.

My first thought was "Rick Santorum, you are a f#cking idiot."

Now I ponder if he is sinking his boat on purpose......

Santorum jumps the shark. Pledges to make porn illegal

Won't happen. Can't happen.
This is just another typical politician making election year promises he won't/can't keep.
(Like Obama's 'no lobbiest will have a job in my administration' .. he broke that in a huge way)
He's trying to get the conservative vote but he should be more concerned about getting
the moderate vote.

He is right about one thing - hard core porn is very bad for people. It's addictive. (really!)
And it does demean women and promote violence against them.

But banning it? Won't happen. Can't happen.

He should continue professing Christian values and get elected.

I hope Rick Santorum understands that this isn't the issue Americans care about at this time Oh and Eric of the restate claims that Santorum was only talking about child porn and not adult porn either Santorum sure has defenders

ths guy wants to ban my favorite hobby

Santorum is for a small government, but:

- Wants to regulate your sexual habits.
- Wants to regulate what you do in your own house.
- Wants to decide what you get to watch and what not.
- Spits on the constitution because he wants to break down the separation of church and state.

So every time you are making love to your wife, think about having Santorum at the end of your bed, staring you down

You also have the freedom to Go To Hell following whatever you consider your "freedom and liberty".

No man has the right to SIN in God's eyes....without out paying for that sin. You reap what you sow, karma, the circle of life....etc.

Be careful what you wish for in your liberty. I'm all for the government outlawing sins that are clearly labeled as sins in the HOLY Bible.

If the base of marriage is a contract it is definitly organised prostitutioin… what is prostitution…it is a contract between a couple where man/woman pays/gifts something in order to allow other for the use of his /her body.. & in marriage if man agrees to woman to meet the needs of woman,to care the the kids of produce of sex.. if it is agreement it is certainly long term prostitution.. just with the difference of pereiod..

If marriage is based upon the basis of love it has different dimension.. where a couple lives together not because of needs but for sharing.. it is different story.

Agree or disagree with him, one thing is clear. The man does not understand the role of Federal Government, does not understand the role of President, and does not understand the rule of law set forth by the Constitution.

Sounds like he was groomed for the Presidency.
