Should their Be a National Lottery like they have in Spain?
There is a once a year Spanish Christmas Lottery. The average pay out is $250,000 I believe give or take some thousands! But, thousands if not millions of people win every year, and yes I am sure some go back into debt but I think they need something like this her in the US, your thoughts?
I've often wondered if a national lottery should be established to pay down our debt? Why not? People love lotteries. Billions have been raised and paid out - to what end? Some would say our tax system is a national lottery where everybody pays in and nobody ever wins. I think this is an option we ought to consider.
How has no one answered this question until now?

I awoke this morning with a sense that someone else was in the room, but my wife had already left for the fitness club. Up until now I've not been a very spiritual man, but I had a profound sense that something important was happening. I opened up my mind to the possibility that it was real and...
