Las Vegas is one of the legal gambling Mecca’s of the world. Atlantic City is another. The lottery in the United States generates billions of dollars in revenue. Casinos on Indian Reservations are wildly popular. Online poker is a multi-billion dollar business. So here’s my critical thinking question: why is something so popular illegal in most places in America? Isn’t it about time America grew up and stopped trying to tell it’s citizens what is moral and what is not? How about this idea: let’s legalize gambling, tax it at a high rate, and pay down some of the 14 trillion national debt? Instead of asking the Congress and Federal Reserve to print another $300 billion for a so-called ‘jobs bill’, how about allowing private enterprise to open more casinos and create REAL, SUSTAINABLE, work for the 40 million people who are unemployed? Watch this short video filmed today in Jaco Beach, Costa Rica. I’ll look forward to your comments. Steve Siebold (2:30)
