Yes, Virginia, Democrats ain't the only ones who hate the Bill of Rights:

Virginia House bill proposes $20 fee to watch pornography - Story | WTTG

To be fair, so far there seems to be only one Republican who's being a kook, but I'm not holding my breath on that. In general the Republican party pretty much seems to be the go-to political party for some, specifically religious fanatics types, who are into collective sexual repression. The Republican party overall is no more the party of libertarian principles (as in liberty and certain freedoms) than the Democratic party - well at least not that much more, anyways.

To those who aren't fans of porn, this isn't actually about porn - at least not to me, anyways :)ph34r:). To me, it's the notion that this translates to, which is one of saying not that one only needs permission if it's to access porn, but rather of saying one is being granted access to all other forms of non-porn information without permission from the state.

It's the fact that this kind of thing implicitly reduces a fundamental right to access whatever information we want whenever & however we want to, to something we can only access if given permission by the state that bothers me; it's the foot-in-the-door tactic to impose who knows what kind of future religiously imposed repression that starts with things like porn then might move to political speech.

It's the same kind of fallacy argument based tactic used by the gun grabbers, that it's for safety, to get guns out of the hands of criminals, to protect children, etc., when it not only does none of those, it actually does the very opposite in some cases.
