Looking to Up Their Ante

This week, while your family is looking at higher gas
prices and the dissolution of marriage on the West Coast,
the Democratic Congress is spending their time catering to
the gambling industry. Representative Bart Stupak (D-Mich.)
and John Dingell (D-Mich.) have introduced legislation (H.R.
2176 and H.R. 4115) that would override the wishes of
Michigan voters in a 2004 gambling referendum. These two
bills would use a questionable Indian Tribal land claim to
legalize two new casinos in Michigan--350 miles from any
current Tribal land!

In the House Financial Services Committee this week,
Congressmen Barney Frank (D-Mass.) and Ron Paul (R-Texas),
with a possible assist from Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), will
be pushing their legislation, H.R. 5767, to overturn the
Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA). While
the congressmen insist that their cause is one of
libertarianism, their true motivation likely lies with
United Kingdom citizen Kobus Paulsen, CEO of the
England-based UC Group, which will profit billions if the
UIGEA is overturned. Mr. Paulsen helped Reps. Frank and
Paul write their bill and is believed to be bankrolling much
of the multi-million dollar effort to overturn the UGIEA.
Please contact your Representative today and tell Congress
to stop promoting gambling and start betting on a sure
financial gain for families like making the President's tax
cuts permanent.


FRC is trying to say Ron Paul is sponsoring this legislation to please Mr. Paulsen rather than on principles.

I don't do 3rd party assumptions

contact Ron Paul on it and get a real answer.

No one can speak FOR you except YOU.

Not worth the effort. The writer doesn't care about the Constitution or freedom of choice. He just wants the government to keep people from sinning.

I don't have a problem that the writer has a different view from mine on gambling. My beef is that they besmirched Ron Paul's reputation by implying that his motives were less than honorable, that he was acting because he was lobbied by a billionaire. Ron Paul is not for sale, and this letter borders on slanderous.

Family Research Council is a propaganda spewing, neo-Christian, ultra-conservative, fundamentalist organization on par with the Mujahideen.
