    That's why it needs to be made legal, take the criminals out of the industry.

    As far as I am concerned, producing pornography for profit is a form of prostitution and should be prohibited under the same laws.

    I'm speaking in legal terms, not philisophical. That's one of my biggest gripes with the right, they claim "smaller government" "more liberties" and yell all this bullsh*t about freedom, but then want to control peoples personals lives. That hypocrisy is actually very American, as our founding fathers touted liberty and freedom and then went home at night and whipped their slaves backs raw.

    If some hardworking, tax paying man who has trouble getting ladies wants to pay a slutty girl cash to spend the night with him, who am I to tell him he can't do it?

    Wouldn't you consider that nanny-state government? The problem with enforcing morals in a society is not everyone has the same morals so someone is always being oppressed. I am sure there is something about you (gender, race, religion, etc.) or something that you do (gamble, drink alcohol, read the Bible, have sex in any other position than missionary) that at one point in time in some society around the world would have forbid you to do. So why does one group of people get to choose the moral code and not the others? True justice requires libertarian social policies.

    I consider it the government's obligation.

    If everyone had the same morals, they would not need to be enforced. The fact that every person has their own understanding of morality is what necessitates the government upholding its own singular standard to the best of its ability. I am certain that there have been periods of history in which my own lifestyle would be prohibited, just as there are people who would turn the government against me even today. That is no justification for the government to ignore its duty to uphold the moral consensus of society.

    The reason why one group of people gets to choose our moral code is because they are the group of people who have been chosen to do so. Justice is a moral concept, thus in order for it to exist, there must be morality.

    Well the same could have been said for your responses in the sense of being a " clueless conservative response" . but with you talking about morality and all, how is it moral to subject prostitutes to a life of fear and abuse by keeping it illegal ?
