As we reported earlier, all four candidates in last night’s GOP debate in South Carolina stated their opposition to SOPA. Ron Paul pointed out that he had always been against it and waiting for the others to catch up. Newt said he ‘favors freedom’. Romney agreed. Santorum doesn’t like SOPA, as is, but still thinks that government should regulate the content of the Internet. I wonder why?
