.... duties associated with the office. It was more of a popularity contest than a serious commitment.

.... form or media. I know children, some as young as ten years, who have an unlimited supply of pornography. They have been exposed to it from an early age and it has become an addiction like smoking or drinking. Part of the problem is that censorship laws are not enforced.

.... Even when longer sentences are given, they are rarely served. The average murderer spends about six years in prison. What factors decide the outcome of such individuals?
