Prostitution should be legal and openly regulated.
Prostitution should be illegal.
Prostitution should only be decriminalized and associated aspects of it heavily regulated.
Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger. ― Ron Paul
Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty. Thomas Jefferson
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
It wasn't that long ago Times Square was crawling with ho's. Better they be in a building than on damn near every street corner. (I'd also opine many people would LOVE a brothel or two in Times Square as long as the motif doesn't clash with the over-hyped commercialization of the district... )

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
Well here in Ontario almost all prostitution laws were struck down as unconstitutional. Starting in March brothels are legal. The last I heard of it was that it may go to the supreme court aswell.
