Many believe that gambling should be outlawed because it can harm families and it is addictive. John Stossel believes otherwise and argues the fact by stating that many things are harmful, including fatty foods which is why everything has to remain in moderation. John Stossel believes that even if completely outlawed...gambling will never cease to exist. He calls states hypocrites as they run the biggest gambling...the lottery where they air commercials aimed at the poor and entice them to buy up their tickets in the mere chance of winning millions.
John Stossel argues that by banning US online gambling all we are doing is giving our money to the Caribbean and to Europe because gamers can still play on the Internet through these venues.
