Mitt Romney in 2007: Porn Filter on Computers

Looks like "Frothy Mix" Santorum may have stolen his "War on Porn" idea from Mittens:


"I wanna make sure that every new computer sold in this country after I'm president has installed on it a filter to block all pornography and that parents can click that filter to make sure their kids don't see that kinda stuff coming in on their computer."
So under Mittens’ regime, all computers would be required by law to filter out Twilight Sparkle stocking art porn. Well, okay, computers would have just been required to carry a chip that would allow parents to block porn if they wanted to, sort of like how the V-chip works in television sets—you know, the same V-Chip nobody uses!

Here’s an idea, Mittens: if parents really don’t want their children looking at internet porn, they can always monitor them while they’re on the internet, or they can install porn-blocking software on their computer. No need to force every computer company to install chips into their systems—especially when many people aren’t going to use it anyway

Remember folks, free-market capitalism dictates that the government should refrain from intervening in the market—unless it’s to push our social conservative agenda, then we need more burdensome regulations. We need to protect the children! You do care about the children?



Oh please! Everyone’s always on about the children. I’ve already tried leaving them alive, but all they do is grow up under my rule or dedicate their pathetic lives to revenge—usually both. Really, killing them is a kindness. I could retract that kindness if you wish, but then who’s the villan? – Frieza, DBZ Abridged
