The Republicans just love government telling people what they can and can’t do:
Republican presidential candidates Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, and Newt Gingrich have all told the group Morality in Media that they would enforce federal obscenity laws that prohibit the distribution of pornography.
Those laws, the anti-pornography group said, are being ignored by the current administration.
“Federal obscenity laws should be vigorously enforced,” Santorum told the group. “If elected President, I will appoint an Attorney General who will do so.”
Romney told the group it was “imperative that we cultivate the promotion of fundamental family values.”
I’m sorry, but shouldn’t “family values” be a personal/family issue and not one of the United States government? Common sense would say so. But we are talking about the GOP, who believes that the government should control every aspect of our lives, while telling you that government is bad.
At least we are seeing the GOP candidates jumping further into the social conservative waters, where they will alienate the true Americans that believe in personal responsibility, including the ability of our citizens to make appropriate choices for themselves. This will do nothing but help Obama even more this fall.
