while i personally hold a mix of communist and green beliefs, i would not want to force them on anybody except in the case of shared resources(ie, the environment), so if i were to vote it would probably be for a libertarian government leaning as much to anarchy as possible.

isn't that the idea? it seems that a good part of the porn industry aims to use actors as young as legally possible or at least portray them as such. so surely a girl that looked 14 but had the right paperwork to say she was 18 would be one helluva catch in that industry.
