    The main and only purpose of a state lottory was to increase the revenue of that state.  A lottory was just another tax on people willing to be taxed.

    How can NJ justify selling off a source of revenue?  Can I "buy" the property tax receipts of NJ?  Does NJ have the right to sell off tax revenue? 

    I suppose they do.  If a state or town or county can take any property away from a citizen and sell that property to another citizen, then states have evolved into a tryanny and can do what they please. 

    What I don't understand is how incumbents managed to get re-elected.  Are they "stealing" the election?  They must be! 

Incumbents get elected because the majority of voters are dumb and vote along party lines or only vote for incumbents. Sad but true.

    Maybe we LP members should put our money together and make a bid.

      Excellent point.  Who's to say we wouldn't get stuck with a computerized nightmare?
