    of course he does...obviously sex is whats wrong with the world.
    just my opinion , but many of the problems the world has, seem to be caused by religious extremists..not people enjoying their sexual freedom.

    What he wants is enforcement of the laws that already exist. I know that's an easy point if you see an article online and don't do some fact checking on your own, but the impression you get from reading an article and the actual statement from Santorum are two different things.

    With that said, if something like this was pushed too far, I would anticipate it being turned over on the basis of constitutionality, and I would trust the kind of judicial appointees that Santorum would appoint to follow the constitution in such an occasion - certainly more than I'd trust an Obama appointee.

    the only thing that scares me about internet porn, is the potential for my children to access it..computers are everywhere, and theres some fetish type porn sites out there that i wouldnt want my kids exposed to ...but i think as adults we should be able to choose for ourselves not have our gov't decide for us.

    and as far as eliminating porn....how 'bout eliminating violence on tv? kids can click on the tube and see people being shot ,stabbed , beheaded, raped......but god forbid seeing a woman take her top off....how horrible! to see a womans breasts!!! oh nooooo!!! the damage from seeing a womans breasts would be irreversable,im sure......again, religious fanatics with sexual hangups...................idiots.....sorry.

    Maybe he should concentrate on outlawing unconstitutional wars instead. JMHO.

    I think the kind of stuff Santorum is likely reacting to are stories about people looking at porn on public computers in public libraries, parents complaining to librarians and librarians stating there is nothing they can do about it. But that's just a guess.

    I have less guess work when it comes to the motives of the articles. My wife had a similar reaction of being concerned that Santorum is too conservative when she saw the headline. That's the reaction the article is intended to create. I have other reasons for favoring Santorum or accepting whoever ends up with the Republican party nomination, and I have no intention of being distracted from that because of relatively smaller issues.

    Quite frankly, I think even the economy shouldn't be a first priority in choosing the president, aside from the fact that the president should be more inclined to not impede the economy. The proper role of president is first and foremost commander in chief.

    But really I don't come here for politics either.

    I agree that I don't want my child exposed to porn. What about the tax implications? the porn industry is a multi billion dollar a year industry. There is going to be a tax hit not only for the us govt, but state and local govt. Especially California with the san fernando valley being a mecca of porn production.

    As far a violence tv. Has anyone watched he power rangers. That is a kids show that if fairly violent in its content.

    If people were more open to sexual talk, expression, etc it would be less taboo. Parents are so repressed, they don't wanna control their children's curiosity about sex. We wonder why we have a large amount of teen pregnancy. Hell, MTV has a show that makes it look glamorous. Girls are tying to get pregnant to get on that show. It starts at home. It isn't the porn fault. Parents just need to be honest and treat sexuality as what it is, a natural part of life. Not a taboo off limits subject.

    Why doesn't he focus on the problem of fixing he home crisis in America rather that push his own morals on a country that is so divided by money, race, class, etc.

    We should lynch him. Condoms are whats wrong with the world (atleast the US). Alot of people dont use them. I think its bullshit when people try and hide or act like the human instinct of sexual urges are restricted. If people wore more condoms and cared more about what having kids means, overpopulation wouldnt be an issue. It sickens me when I see a 22 year old with 4 kids already. Its gross. Sorry if its sort of steering away from the topic, but thats why I think hes trying to outlaw it. Go die.

    I also agree with that strongly. MTV and parents that put there kids on house arrest, lockin them away from the real world are a big factor. Thats what happens to women when they get to college. They figure out sex and drugs and get careless. Same thing goes with marriage.

    and unfortunately it seems the same people that are incapable of governing themselves are the same people that cant control the rate they reproduce. while people with a social conscience are living within their means and having fewer kids....and picking up the bill..
    but i guess thats another topic...sorry

    Theres no need to censor porn on the net. All that needs to be done is create an ".adu" extension used to designate pornography to make it easier for Parental Controls to block it. I don't know how any porn site could really argue against that i mean what is it: "we can't do that, we need to have under 18's view our free speech! free speech is not just for adults!" i mean c'mon!

    There is a whole lot I could say about Santorum and the rest of the Republitard crusade, but I'll leave it at "Santorum is fucking batshit loonball."

    I don't understand America at all. Seriously though, I am concerned about the violent films produced by Hollywood, as are many Australians. We classify films from G (general) to R (restricted to 18 years and over) to X (which covers explicit DVDs). The classification bureau did an extensive survey of Australians and exposed them a range of film genres, and the result is that Australians are quite comfortable with sex and nudity in mainstream films and this has now been downgraded. We are concerned about excesive violence, and highly violent films have been upgraded to R (alongside mainstream films with real sex). Explicit sex stays X.

    It is thought the American obsession with violence on film and in real life has a lot to do with sexual supression.

    Australian community attitudes, especially as we are irreligious, would never see any local politician even canvas such a stupid idea.

    To ban porn on the Internet would require a filter list of porn sites which every ISP would be required to pass all traffic through. This would slow the Internet in the US to a crawl, slower than third-world speeds! Also, the maintenance of such a hit-list would be impossible. Any porn site currently hosted in the US would be moved to servers offshore, like Australia, and still be available unless filtered. DVD sales would be more easily stopped, but who buys porn DVDs anyway? And who decides what is porn and what is erotica or even sex education?

    I hire a new release DVD for us to watch most Saturday nights, and I always give the DVDs classified MA or R with the note 'contains high levels of violence' a miss. As a result I can't remember when I last hired a mainstream Hollywood film! Australian films (Sleeping Beauty was a gem last week), British films, independant US films, French films (because I speak French and don't rely on inaccurate sub-titles); but never Hollywood. Trop violent pour moi.
