This question is for everybody. Regardless of how many casinos you have, or don't have in your state, would you vote for a casino for your area and/or state? Even if the casino is arrproved and pay a 30% tax to the state? Right now Ohio has on the ballot issue 6 for or against the gambling casino. How it's set up is they (Casino) would have to pay a 30% tax here in Ohio. They would give 10% to the county it's built in with the 94 acre area in Clinton County (in between Cincinnati and Columbus, near Wilmington), and the rest of the 90% to the other 87 counties in Ohio with the most going to the most populated counties. But wait, there is a loophole that would be in the state's constituation to if ever another gambling casino were to open in the state, the taxes could go down to zero in taxes for the casino to pay to the state. For the people in Ohio, are you going to vote for or against issue 6? Also, how do you plan on voting on issues 1,2,3, and 5? I plan on voting yes on all the issues except for 6 itself. Now, for you others across the country, would you vote for a casino for your state whether you already have one or more, or none at all, and why?

As for ACORN, they should be dissolved for all the lying and cheating they're pulling across the country with voter fraud.

I live in an area there is 5 casinos in less than a 2 1/2 hr drive..........employment rate is up and holding in those areas.......due to the casinos.......Here the Indian Reservations own them........and I am not sure what or how much if any taxes are paid to the state but I know a lot of ppl that wouldnt have decent paying jobs without the casinos........they contribute tons of money to the community for all people to take advantage of..........I dont know what things would be like for northern Minnesota if it wasnt for the casinos.........I do know that although the area does well as a tourist industry........after labor day until opening of fishing (second weekend in May) there isnt that many ppl traveling here..........thank god for the casinos.

BTW for those of you who think that people gamble more now there is casinos.......thats not true.........the ones who are addicted to it......just dont have to drive so far.

Casino's have their place as well as a bar i guess...... personally i dont frequent them as i had an ex who put me in the poor house due to her habitual gambling.

as for voter fraud.......i think it's wrong, and should be dealt with asap!
it wouldnt be the first time the dead rose just in time for an election.

Interesting post particularly in how the revenues will be divided. In Texas I doubt that we will see a casino. As I recall, when this state accepted horse tracks and the lottery, the taxes were supposed to go to the state for education, but much was diverted to the general fund.

In regards to having or not having a casino, I don't have any feelings one way or another.

As for ACORN, they should be dissolved for all the lying and cheating they're pulling across the country with voter fraud.
Didn't you once call for the NAACP to be banned for being racist? It is unclear how widespread this is or if it is. But it is up to the states to certify the validity. Voter fraud has gone on since the beginning of this nation. For a bit more on this, you can go here.

On the borders surrounding Texas there are casinos. I don't know if this is universal, but at the ones owned by Indians in Oklahoma, no liquor is served. The people that go to ones nearby tend to be low rollers as the monied high rollers still go to Vegas, Reno or Atlantic City.

BTW, the funniest thing I ever saw was at an Indian owned casino is southern California. By the door was a wooden John Wayne holding five cigars.

This issue was all over the tv when I was out there, and I must say I did wonder about it and how it would affect you folks. We have only bingo and slots around here. The slots do bring in some money and lots of people have better paying jobs than they normally would. So it does have some good points to it, so much so that they expanded it to include a huge hotel and a bigger slots area. I can't say how big as i've never been. I'm curious what the voters decide on.

Michigan has Casino's, and where there's casino's, there's jobs. The areas with casino's thrive while areas that have relied heavily on the auto industry are struggling. So, if Michigan were to propose more casinos..I would vote yes. It would create more jobs and put more money into the economy.
