Yea, a lot of us ED regs have heard this one.

Rick Santorum to battle "scourge" of internet porn, will enforce obscenity laws.

Lest you think, though, that this is just Santorum grandstanding to Romney and Gingrich, they've said the exact same things, complete with citing their commitment to enforcing "obscenity laws", ie the laws based on a still flimsy premise that put your a** in prison if you look at boobies on the internet.

This is the party, folks, that touts it'self as the ones that want government OUT of your lives, remember?

So Reps, got anything else to say on the matter of less government interference in your private affairs, hmm?
Less government only applies to corporations, business regulations, safety, and rich people's taxes. It does not apply to your bedroom, v****a, sex life (except Viagra prescriptions) or who you are allowed to marry.

It's lip service, and won't go anywhere. Flynt already fought that dog and beat it to death under the first amendment. I am not a fan of porn, but if there are (and I know they exist) fans of it? As long as they are of age, who cares?

That's becuase you still hold to that quaint belief that Republicans should be in the business of not expanding government into your lives, Joe. You know, the one that the GOP seems hell bent on forgetting it ever stood for...

You keep forgetting I'm the one that called the last election the short bus special, and said if Obama got elected it would be Carter, Phase II. He's holding true to that. He just lies more and his 'transparent government' looks a lot like a brick wall.
I have no use for Santorum. I'd rather have Paul in office, and I think my opinion of Paul is fairly well known.
Romney? He's writing a low value check as far as I'm concerned, and one he has no intention of cashing in. He doesn't care.
Santorum is doing his damndest to drag all the extremists out to the polls, because he knows that the rest of us have jobs and aren't interested in him.

He's just...damn. He's short bus riding, booger eating stupid. I cannot wrap my mind around how in the ******** he's considered a candidate, and I swear Romney is keeping him in the race as a comparison, saying 'you can have this dipshit, or you can have me. Which do you want?'
Do I think Santorum is really that much of an Evangelical? Yep. Just as I firmly believe that Obama, with some of his ******** moronic s**t, is as anti gun as his previous record states, and he's simply trying to load the USSC to screw us over. (Currently building a black rifle. May need a bit of technical advice!)
I don't trust any of these sumbitches as far as I can throw Rosie O'Donnell.

What is really disturbing is that Santorum's Catholic, and evangelicals tend to hate Catholics.

I've even seen some evangelicals make the absurd claim that Catholics aren't actually Christian (lrn2history guys. Catholics were the Original Christians). Granted, these evangelicals tend to be of the fundamentalist, intelligent design, God-created-the-world-in-seven-human-days slant, so they're already what most people consider odd.

ANYWAY, back on topic.

Like Joe said, Flynt already killed obscenity laws concerning porn with the First Amendment back in the late 60s-early 70s. It's just lip service to the self-proclaimed "moral majority".

How will this affect Santorum at the polls in the next couple primaries is the big question.

As the Zen Master says, "We'll see."

Flynt was actually charged under an Ohio obscenity law back in the seventies, was found guilty, but served six days before his sentence was overturned on a technicality. The law itself was never found invalid.

You might be mistaking Flynt's success against Falwell in a defamation case, which was what that movie was about. Obscenity laws are still valid, as long as the material is "obscene" by the constitutional standard, rather than merely indecent. The relevant case, Miller v. California, upheld the notion that obscene materials are not protected by the First Amendment, and established the Miller test for obscene material.

So, yeah, technically, the government could ban the sale of hardcore porn without running afoul of the First Amendment. The issue is basically what would be considered "hardcore" these days, within the meaning of the Miller test.

U mad, Santorum?

But seriously, it's kind of hard for the Republicans to say they want less powerful government when their primary candidates all want the government to take more control over how people live their lives.

Which is why I say two halves of the same coin most times. There are differing opinions in areas, more like polar opposites, but both sides are growing the government way beyond what it is supposed to be.

Pretty much. Liberals want more powerful government when it comes to the economy, Conservatives want more powerful government for regulating society.

Don't worry, even if he were actually elected, I doubt he'd actually go with it. It's just rhetoric to get more people
