    Rick Santorum wants to put an end to the distribution of pornography in the United States.
    "America is suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography," Santorum's official website reads. "Pornography is toxic to marriages and relationships. It contributes to misogyny and violence against women. It is a contributing factor to prostitution and sex trafficking."
    The former Pennsylvania senator states that, "as a parent, I am concerned about the widespread distribution of illegal obscene pornography and its profound effects on our culture."
    Santorum criticized the Obama administration for turning "a blind eye ... to the scourge of pornography" and for refusing to enforce obscenity laws.
    "If elected President, I will appoint an Attorney General who will do so," Santorum writes. "While the Obama Department of Justice seems to favor pornographers over children and families, that will change under a Santorum Administration."
    Santorum is not the first presidential candidate to take up the obscenity issue. In July, Michele Bachmann signed a pledge vowing her support of a constitutional amendment that, among other things, called for a ban on all pornography. (It also effectively called for a ban on same-sex marriage.)
    The Atlantic wonders if Santorum's wide-scale crackdown on porn could actually work.
    The Daily Caller found someone who thinks it could. "If the government wanted to aggressively move against Internet pornography, it could do so," UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh told the site.
    Wonkette's Rebecca Schoenkopf pointed out it's just another example of Santorum positioning himself as the extremely conservative choice for president.
    "It seems that Rick Santorum has found time in his busy schedule of condemning 'radical' women for working outside the home and using birth control, and nagging English-speaking Puerto Ricans to speak English, and now is turning his hot, penetrating gaze to manfolk-bizness," she wrote.

    a return to decency, civility, modesty and genuine respect between the sexes would be wonderful.

    doubt the government could cause it to happen, tho. too busy building bridges to nowhere, and high speed rail to bakersfield.

    The idea that such ridiculous proposals as the leading GOP candidates have been making are even entertained is a truly bizarre phenomenon...

    What happened to that "smaller, less invasive government" thing???

    that's a constitutionalist thing; not all right wing republicans are constitutionalists

    some want the power in the government to do things they want to do, both left and right, and they are all progressives

    not many constitutionalists out there :dontknow:

    I feel blessed that a Presidential Candidate is focusing his efforts on this important issue.

    sarcasm aside, if men and women in this country formed strong families, a lot of the things you think the government should involve itself in would sort themselves out; it is the lack of family structure in large cities that is causing devastation and dependence on the government, to all of our ruin.

    problem: hungry kids.
    solution: father and mother providing food to kids.

    problem: hood rats
    solution: father and mother controlling their kids

    problem: poverty
    solution: father and mother having kids when they can afford to

    problem: abortion
    solution: father and mother having sex when they can afford to have kids

    problem: old people
    solution: father and mother take care of their parents.

    need more of a solution? turn to the church. people love helping people out of the goodness of their hearts, not out of the necessity of avoiding the IRS.

    the solutions now are so complex, but the problems, and avoiding the need for the complex solutions, was simple.
