Mitt Romney wants to clean up your video games

US Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's latest ad, entitled 'Ocean', explains to Americans that he is deeply troubled about the culture surrounding kids today. Because of this, he is going to work hard to make sure porn does not pop up on their computers AND he's going to clean up violence on television, movies and videogames.

Watch the ad:



I know this is just a feel good ad that doesn't mean much (at least not until we get a candidate who is pro-porn pop ups for kids), but it still drives me bonkers. First, regarding the porn aspect, with the exclusion e-mail spam, porn just doesn't pop up on computers. If your computer has never been directed to a pornographic web site, your computer isn't going to serve up porn. So, if parents are worried about this problem, they shouldn't visit pornographic web sites. Problem one, solved.

Regarding violence in TV, movies and videogames, explain to me why violence must be removed from media that I enjoy to protect children. I love kids and I don't want them exposed to violence, but what happened to parents being responsible for the movies, tv and videogames that kids get their hands on?

It seems to me that Romney is taking the position that parents are helpless in this world of technology, and if we don't take action to censor media intended for adults, we're soon going to be surrouded by Columbine killers. Eek.
