This is another possible wedge issue, this one would peel off the evangelicals/fundamentalists who oppose it as immoral, if the Democratic Party came out against gambling.

Combine that with my earlier proposal to ban the sale of personal information by corporations (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph... ), and we are talking serious wedges in the GOP.

Where do you all stand on this? Is this something we should try?

on edit: This would have a few benefits. One is that state parties could go along with it or not as they wished, and since this is a state issue, coming out against it at the national level would do no harm. It would be fun watching Bush being torn in two between the corporate profits and the fundamentalist moralizers.
