For his online support to drop, he’d have to have some to begin with.

Mitt v. The Entire Internet.

That would be something, all right.

Fun fact: Utah is the most republican state in the U.S.

It is also the state that looks at porn the most.

Yeah, this vow will never happen.

“Corporations are people, my friend. We can raise taxes at- of course they are – everything that corporations earn ultimately goes to people. Where do you think it goes? Whose pockets? Whose pockets? People’s pockets. Human beings, my friend.” – Mitt Romney

Sometimes I think he is secretly a Democrat trying to sabotage the GOP.

Seriously, does Romney even realize what he’d be getting into if he tried this? Does he know how much we’re even talking about? Or that this would certainly instill the wrath of Anonymous?

If he tries this, he’s screwed.

Right.

The president has a lot of power (Chief of State, Commander in Cheif, et cetera ad nauseum), but something like this would need to be passed by Congress. This is a mudslinging thing wherein Romney said something stupid to get the vote of old people and is now suffering the loss of voters that he never could have gotten I mean campaigned for.

Everyone can calm your tits. Our porn is safe, because Congress knows what the internet is for.

I’d say no, because it would be unconstitutional, but it’s not like the Supreme Court has much principle.

Methink’s Romney vastly underestimates the power of the porn industry.

The porn industry is bigger than Hollywood. Attempting to reign than beast down would be like attempting to ban Alcohol. Only worse…much worse.

He doesn’t stand a chance

From Utah, can confirm half of those searches are on my part.

Oh yeah, that’s a common thing actually. Research in the Netherlands showed that the more religious communities and towns sold the most porn. It wouldn’t suprise me if that was the same elsewhere.

One of the more right parties in the Netherlands is the ‘ChristenUnie’ (ChristianUnion), which, as the name implies, follows Christianity a lot. So no abortion, sunday national resting day, stuff like that.

The towns and communities where they get the most votes and support from matched awfully well with the selling and renting of pornography.

I can’t recall and Canadian religious parties by name, which means we win.
Where as the USA loses, because religion is a political issue but they misnamed their party the Republicans.

Romney will not ban porn. It is too valuable

Pornography is needed to keep the plebs in order and in a docile state so that the patricians may continue to guide us to a glorious Pax Americana.

In case you were wondering, it was a Harvard research study that showed that Utah consumed the most porn (Followed by Alaska)

Pfft.

Like he could ever take out something like porn…

Sep 07, 2012 at 12:23PM EDT

@burning_phoneix:

Is that per capita or in total? If the 377k residents of Alaska altogether consume a greater amount of porn than the 37 million residents of California… well, color me shocked.

It’s per capita. I’m not going to try and calculate the results in total.

Though it should be noted that this survey only covers subscriptions to Online porn websites. It doesn’t really measure things like torrents or thing of that nature.

How votes has he lost now?

At the moment, he has probably lost around 259,561,000 votes due to internet surveys and data.

>Implying that Mitt Romney hadn’t already been sinking deep down to the depths of Internet support, and that 259,561,000 people would still have decided to vote for him after discovering more about his past, save for the conversatives here in my town (living in Michigan) who vote Republican regardless of policies. It annoys the hell out of me that people won’t listen to me when I try to inform them about corrupt ideas central around energy policy, foreign policy, military budget, and in this case, Internet censorship. But then again, I’m also implying that most of Congress isn’t like this, aren’t I?

About internet support… this is from Memebase, I pulled it off at 7:45 Eastern Time (ish). Not a perfect sample of the internet, but it gives us an idea.

Why, thank you, Niko. Out of curiosity, which country DO you live in?

Looks like some 3,000-odd people don’t know about this. Or maybe they do, and they just don’t care. Which brings me back to the post I made earlier.

I have a a few questions about this: What about porn I can get off of On-Demand? And what if I get my rock off to images and videos relating to my fetish as opposed to actual porn? Is he after them to?

If it’s porn (meaning if it qualifies and can be legally branded and sold as porn), he’ll try to ban it.

Also, I just got ninja’d. FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUU

Be careful, it’s actually illegal to do shops like that, if they’re actually done well.

The Proibitionism… The Berlin wall… Did american politics ever study history? Will they ever learn that such kind of action has only the backfire to raise criminality and/or make people emigrate in other countries?
When I was a little kid I often dreamed to live in U.S.A. but the more I learn from it, the more I feel happy to live in my little boot shaped country.
