Do Republicans Really Want to Ban Porn and Tipping Strippers?

Many Republican candidates for state and federal office would like you to believe that they want people to go to prison for selling porn, and think tipping strippers should be illegal.

The lobbyists at the Center for Arizona Policy released the candidates' answers to their questionnaires for this year's elections, which is not only a good indication of the CAP morality cops' agenda, but also of how much CAP ass-kissing the Republicans are willing to do.

Every state candidate was asked by CAP whether they support or oppose "[p]rohibiting touching or tipping dancers and fully nude performances in sexually oriented businesses," and more than 80 state-level candidates actually responded to that.

Not only did they respond, most of them said they support that.

A grand total of two legislators who turned in their questionnaires (Representatives Russ Jones and Chester Crandell) said they opposed it. Three legislators -- Senator Frank Antenori, and Representatives Michelle Ugenti and David Gowan -- didn't answer the question.

On the federal side, those candidates were asked whether they supported "[e]nforcing federal laws vigorously against obscene hardcore pornography."

Every single major Republican candidate for Congress said they supported that. Among other things, that would include up to five years in prison for sending a dirty DVD in the mail -- 10 for second offenders.

Are you buying that the Republicans believe this?

Don't worry.   The sex industry will soon be increasing.    As times get worse, the sex will flow.  You may not have any money but it will be there.    Distraction and lowering of morals.   It's a great combination.     I'm all for it.

lol I refused to say the pledge when I was in high school because of the words "under god" being put in there in 1955 and being passed off as being part of the original. I was wondering what would happen... NOTHING. the state can't force you to say anything at all.

Does anyone else find it interesting that perhaps the hottest Republican in the legislature, Michelle Ugenti, didn't answer the question.....

Sure they want to ban all that stuff. Why should they care? They can afford jaunts to Vegas, and even afford to get out of stuff most of us plebians can't. Those laws are for the little people, not the plutocrats.

Guest, here's at least one citizen who agrees with you. Hell, I won't even call myself an American anymore, let alone salute a flag or stand at the National Anthem, I'm that mad at the Fascists here.

These days Republicans have become a new form of pornography.

If those ass-hats really wanted to band strippers, then why will every strip club in Tampa be packed for the Republican National Convention?
