Some people don’t like gambling, which is fine. We all have our opinions. The main reason people give for being against gambling, though, is that it causes people to blow all of their money, lose their life savings, and go from owning a nice house and car to living under a bridge. I personally don't like online casinos, if I'm going to spend money I do them in a real casino. This is just a personal preference.

It's called the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA). The Act "prohibits any person engaged in the business of betting or wagering (as defined in the Act) from knowingly accepting payments in connection with the participation of another person in unlawful Internet gambling."

The US government managed to drive the online gambling overseas but they did not ban access from US to those sites. This only means that some US money are being taxed elsewhere and the state only has to lose. In France, access to online slots casino or other forms of gambling is banned and no one form inside France's borders can place bets online.

The U.S. offshore Internet gambling market is expected to climb to $5.7 billion in 2010 from $5.4 billion last year, according to U.K.-based H2 Gambling Capital. Online betting is the most predatory, addictive and invasive form of gambling. It gives Congress a huge new source of revenue that is just sitting there on the table. If the U.S. legalizes the gambling, the market could grow to $24 billion in five years, according to H2. That excludes Sports Betting, which wouldn’t be allowed under House proposals.

People are going to find a way to gamble. Let them. Its time that people are responsible for their actions. So make gambling legal at the Federal level, let the states impose the laws they see fit, and let em tax the shit out of it.

If history can teach us something, it is that banning something will only serve to make it stronger.

Plus, its every indivual's money and the individual should be allowed to decide what to do with it. If they want to gamble, fine, so be it.

 I'm sick and tired that whenever people are presented with indisputable facts, such as that there are only a very small percentage of gamblers who are actually problem gamblers (compare this with the amount of people addicted to smoking) they will then counter with religious reasons as to why it should be banned. Its sickening, how some people (who happened to be very vocal) always appeal to emotions when they run out of rational arguments.-=KAZE=-
