The guy at the end of the video...

...looks like he is thinking: "Mitt Romney just lost my vote."

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

This is 4 yrs old

I doubt Romney even remembers saying this, plus most those people in the audience have probably died since then.

Mitt may have forgotten (or would like to), but this video will live forever.

Computer Sales Would Plummet

Think of all the jobs that would be lost! ;)

This has nothing to do with

This has nothing to do with scanning/filtering your computers for porn, IMO.

It has everything to do with installing a doorway for the government into all of our computers.

It's all about them being able to scan/filter files on your computers. Porn is simply the excuse.

The reason porn is the excuse is because there are already many different services offering a variety of ways for parents to block their kids from porn online. There is also a much easier & significantly more effective technical solution to such a mandate without requiring anything to be install in any of our computers. The solution would be to mandate (not that I agree with such a mandate) that all porn online in the U.S. be hosted from .xxx and any non-xxx domains turn into redirect to the .xxx domains. Then parents simply block .xxx websites from their computers or home network.

Since there is a much more simple, cheap & significantly more effective method of implementing such a mandate... why would they want to implement this by installing something into every computer made? In my opinion, it's because the gov wants to be inside all of our computers. This is not about porn.

No wonder Romney's family is campaigning for Ron Paul.

'nuff said, indeed.

All this is pandering to the Social Conservative RS crowd, nothing more nothing less

*Wisconsin Constitution* Article I, Section 25 "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security,defense,hunting,recreation or any other law-abiding purpose"

Even in 2008

There were filters that could be installed on computers that blocked kids from accessing pornography. Romney was once again pandering to some of his "moral police" supporters. As many of the people here have already stated, the parents are the ones who need to "clean the water that their kids are swimming in" as Romney put it.

Its up to the parents

which is fine because its the parents job to raise their kids in their image.

"I will take care of you"--

"I will place no limitations on myself, but on you I will"--

crazy wrong.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

But Bain Capital owns enough of the media

that it's safe to say he's owned companies that broadcast images that those old ladies there would find utterly perverted.

Interesting excuse to

control the Internet. Not very imaginative. I guess they feel the masses are too dumb to see through their nefarious machinations.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Don't worry, that was in 2008; I'm sure by now Mitt is Pro-pornography. That would be nearly an eternity for Mitt if he was to hold the same position for 4 years; it would be a 'Black Swan' event -one of those things which scientifically we know should happen, but in reality it just never manifests itself.

One of my IT instructors said

the computer hardware technology is driven by games and Internet technology is driven by porn. I wonder if Romney realizes he is proposing to yank out one of technology's cornerstones.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

technology is driven by porn.

about fifteen years ago I researched porn sites
set ups, ownership, incomes, costs, conten,t et al
some of the wisest and most generous of their time skills and knowledge I have EVER met were the long time owners of porn sites
those who started the internet porn industry
to make good money they had to have minimun of 50 sites
some had several hundred
a few more than a thousand

college kids, parents, Grannies, pols in training, church leaders, all set up a few dozen porn sites and made the monthly nut with huge profits to make life more than bearable

mostly in those days the pioneers were on some long time probation or fudged IDs and stayed in the hills of Colorado, Montana, Utah on fabulous compounds well protected and rode their cycles to meets a few times a year but kept LOW profiles living very well and admittedly stashing against the day they might have to leave the country

the three main connections all of them had to use were all jewish owned
it was a given in the porn industry then
by now most of those indie guys are dead or left the country with what they could get out carrying

as the industry was TOTALLY taken over by those eastern European non Gentiles

those guys were the PIONEERS of the tech age and freely gave tips and helps to all newbies even sometimes free content to get started with

there were some forums and chat sites where those porn owners met up with questioners and helped get them up and running

it was well know then that all the progress in the puter tech world was developed by those early pioneers and most of the new tech knowledge came from porn owner experimenters

it is well known today that the highest earning industry in the world is internet porn

way out ahead of internet gambling
and even now much of the advances in tech are coming from those creative minds

while this info may be offensive to many its reality
as I have seen it and discussed it with people in various
segments of internet tech and earnings

now most porn sites are also owned by those eastern european immigrants who also own MOST sex parlors and Alt sex emporiums
and meet up sites

there are still brilliant individual entrepreneurs
but less every year.
still the advances are MOSTLY all coming from the porn industry

what you like to use was probably imagined and created by a porn purveyor, :)

Was that one of

his sons looking like(oh dad you idiot)There are already parental "filters" and kids know how to get past that stuff better their parents do.
He is a bit naive isn't he? Not only out of touch with the people,but technology. And he is the business man that is going to save the country lol.

Huh?

I repeat...

...Huh?

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Don't worry guys..

He is just pandering to the conservative base..

"The economy's not a class you can master in college. To think otherwise is the pretense of knowledge."

Say goodbye then to

Breast Cancer articles. Prostate articles. Venus on a half shell, Michelangelo's David statue, and so on. Why not just burn down all the museums and books "just to be sure"?

Thanks,Mr. Mitt "Small Government" Romney!

Does this mean

that we'll be blocked from seeing that dildo Romney?

We are his subjects

so he can dictate no porn today and tomorrow meybe he will institute a one baby policy and force abortions oh but that would never happen oh but wait it did in China. Mitt dont even pretend to be a servant of the people.

New Title... Romney Discusses His Pornography Problem!

Just turn it off Mitt; if you can :-)

PLASTIC MAN!

.

Nothing new here

Romney is not talking about filtering the internet Chinese style. The problem with what he is talking about is that he would force computer manufacturers to install some sort of filtering that parents could turn on. It is just silly and unnecessary since parents can already filter the internet for their children if they want. Several solutions already exist on the market.

Drain the swamp!

this man is joking

bahahaha nice platform Mr. Plastic man.

His name is Edward Snowden
