    Should Indian casinos be outlawed?

    No, I don't think they should be. They've already taken too much away from the Indian people.

    Good question. I believe Indians have a right to have whatever we have in America. They have a right to education, jobs, good homes, and lives without prejuidices against them.  I think they should also answer to laws , and justice the same as everyone else does in America.

    I also believe that they should live anywhere they wish to live in any country of the world as long as they obey rules like everyone else.

    I do not know a lot about Indian life accept for what I see on television. They are people like everyone else, and I consider them my sisters, and brothers like all Americans in my country that I love.  I am an American citizen born and raised in the United States of America.

    God Bless You.

    Nope; I think everyone should be allowed to start them up, though.  That and whore houses and opium dens.  Nobody has the right to limit others, least of all the federal government.  People are going to gamble, use prostitutes, and do drugs despite the laws anyway, so why not just legalize them and get the economy back on track?

    They can't be outlawed as each reservation is a soverign nation has their own laws.  That is why in states that forbid gambling, you will find casinos on the reservations.  I don't think it is a good idea.  Gambling is very addictive.

    They can't be because they are each sovereign nations on U.S. soil. They have little enough for themselves, including farmable, arable land, so let 'em be! Please.

    BTW, I am part Native American.

    Why would you want them to be outlawed? I'm from Louisiana which is one of the casino capitals. It makes no sense to outlaw a casino. Especially from a group of people that should have them. Could you give a reason why they should be outlawed?

    No, I don't think Indian casinos should be outlawed. I believe the government ought to stay out of it. If anyone anywhere wants to gamble, it should be up to them.

    Well it feels great to know that everyone thinks otherwise for the casinos to be outlawed. Of course, it's an individual choice. But equality should always be there. There's no reason Indian casinos should be outlawed.

    On what basis?

    Because they are gambling casinos?

    Because they are managed by Indians?

    Because "men" risk the dollars that will buy the food to feed their families?

    Because " women" would rather gamble than do household and mothering chores?

    NOW, if we "outlaw" Indian casinos, are we prepared and ready to outlaw MOB casinos?   Private Joe casinos, the Texas 8 ball ( did I say that right)?

    I am not a gambeler.............I am far too stingy with my money............but if you outlaw one.........then outlaw them all.

    I have lived among Indians, most of them are content just to gamble and to drink.

    The same thing could be said for many white men as well.

    NO, and it's to late for this question. In the 40's,you would go to jail if you were caught gambling or running a casino. The government saw how much money they could make off casino's and selling lottery tickets, thus, it's legal in most states. Pot and sex cannot be far behind. Everything in moderation please.... Working will become  illegal by 2012,if the current trends continue. A government committee,I understand, is now considering how to tax the air we breathe,but are being held up by the size of ones nose. A  dilemma. Now, I ask you, if the government gets in you nose, will you picket? ....... See you at the track.

    Native Americans haven't exactly participated in this country's prosperity during much of its history. Do we have to deny them this because some people are offended by gambling?

    I just wish the one near me wasn't so easy to get to. Losing an entire paycheck really sucks! But then again, winning five paychecks dosen't! I was feeling ripped off when I asked this question. I am slowly gaining the maturity to stay out!
