    All law is based on someones morality. Some moral codes are more live and let live and others are more controlling is all.

    You know this. I am certain that you do.
    Always wondered about the point of 'ignore.' It only means you can still comment on their posts and they cant defend their posts. Weird.

    I love it when people put me on ignore. then i can mock their posts without them knowing it. Plus, even when they put me on ignore, they still get notifications that I've responded to one of their posts.

    "Is it the government's job to regulate Morality"

    Government's raison d'etre is to secure the individual rights of The People primarily and to provide for the common defense secondarily. It seems this government's agenda is to control every aspect of everyone's life and to wage hegemonic war, and when it does that, it is no longer a government and therefore has no useful purpose for The People. It is then nothing more than a dangerous destructive force.

    Plus they'll probably see the response in someone else's response to you.

    Some people have honor and would not want to lose that than do what is "beneficial" for them.

    You're presenting a false dichotomy. It's a cheap trick, and you should feel ashamed.

    The government IS the people. If the people have that right, then so does the government.

    All law is regulating morality of some kind. This is a pointless question.

    Incorrect. The government if for the people, by the people and of the people, but it is not the people.
