    Since this is stupid post day, why not.
    This poll is highly manipulative.

    The reason why the federal government is able to outlaw prostitution is because the Constitution gives Congress the power to regulate interstate commerce. That includes making some forms of interstate commerce illegal. Such as prostitution.

    Now I say this despite supporting the legalization of prostitution. The criminalization of prostitution is constitutional. However, despite that it's a bad idea to do so. It's much better and safer and healthier to regulate it - which Congress can do since it's constitutional for them to regulate interstate commerce.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    See folks, this is why the Left have no business anywhere near a voting booth, and forget about holding public office.
    Why should Left-wingers have no business anywhere near a voting booth and shouldn't hold public office because of the opinion of a Libertarian?

    Let me detail it for you.

    NO ONE is saying 'forced prostituion', such as the examples you described, should be legal.

    SOME are saying that 'prostitution', self decided, not forced in any way, shape or form, should be legal.

    Hopefully that clears it up for you.
    Am I correct in understanding that we are still hung up on this naive idea that legalized prostitution does not lead to illegal human sex-slave trafficking? How many countries have tried this now? Even Netherlands regrets their decision.

    This is like talking to Loosertarians who want to legalize Cocaine. It was legal before, and it ****ed us up, so we banned it. Prostitution takes a similar history.

    It is neither. It is for the States to regulate (and most of them do...)

    Specific request, please.

    Are you asking me to prove that liberals have posted on this thread what they have posted on this thread?

    Politicians prostitute themselves on a daily basis, so I don't see why HONEST prostitutes can't do the same.

    Post #74 you said they're dangerous. Who are you referring to Liberals or Libertarians.
