There is enormous scope for lotteries to raise additional revenue. More states lotteries should follow the Massachusetts lottery's example, and allow people from out of state to participate in their lotteries. Washington should follow the UK's example and should establish Premium Bonds.
Democrats control our Senate and the head Democrat, Harry Reid, takes care of the Casino owners in Las Vegas who have made him a very wealthy man.
As long as he is in power, the lotteries won't be allowed to compete in any way shape or form that threatens Vegas revenue.
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship." -Tytler
