Dear Editor,

The enjoyment of good sex, be it free or paid for, is ageless. Prostitution came out of the closet long ago, and is now part of mainstream America. Both the real police and social police attempts at stopping it is a total failure.

What consenting adults consume, inhale, perform, read or view in the privacy of their own home, another person’s home, hotel or private social club isn't the concern of government.

Individual economic and civil liberties prosper best when government stays out of both the bedroom and marketplace.

The free market place will always provide what ever products citizens desire, regardless of government approval. The worlds oldest profession delivers their product on time and within budget.

Contrast that with elected officials who represent the world’s second oldest profession. They seldom keep their promises, can't deliver within budget, and are never on time with their services.

It is time to take prostitution out of the shadows and into the light of day.

Imagine how much revenue could be created with a simple sales tax per transaction? And both the provider and customer could conduct consensual activities in a safer environment.

Our tax dollars would be better spent if police and judges spent more time prosecuting those who commit real crimes against individuals or property than going after those who engage in prostitution.

Citizens have more to fear from murder, muggings, robberies, and identify theft. Law enforcement authorities should be free to pursue those who commit real crimes against citizens and property.
