• Rick Santorum Is Coming for Your Porn

    Rick santorumLimited-government champion Rick Santorum — who so strongly opposes the current President because "he thinks he knows better how to run your lives" — wants to make it illegal for Americans to buy and distribute pornography.

    Irony, however, will continue to be tolerated under a Santorum administration

    "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."…

    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."

    If it seemed even remotely feasible that Rick Santorum could actually win the presidency, this would be absolutely terrifying. (Though, to be fair, it wasn't all that long ago that I didn't think it was remotely that Rick Santorum would become top choice for president amongst the nation's hard-leaning conservatives. So, maybe I should be scared.)

    You know, there are a good number of other countries who have created and upheld morality-based legislation like this. They're called theocracies, and they've managed to install "morality police." The results have been, um… somewhat spotty.
