Mitt Romney does not Support the Legalization of Online Gambling

By Debra SaundersGoogle

Former Massachusetts governor and current candidate for the Republican presidential nomination Mitt Romney is well known as a religious conservative republican.  He has expressed views that are mostly consistent with the Republican mainstream.  Beyond the classic debate issues like abortion and taxes, Romney was recently asked whether or not he supports the legalization of online casinos in the U.S.  Romney answered that he does not support online gambling legalization.

He went on to explain that he feels like casino games are not something that should be supported claiming that their impact on society can be characterized as negative.  He added that he believes that the current access people have to casino games suffices and he sees no reason to increase the level of access that people have to gambling by availing online casino games.  Romney’s comments received harsh criticism from online casino reviews who chastised the former governor for saying hackneyed remarks that have long been proven irrelevant.  Furthermore, they added, there is a certain level of contradiction between Romney’s remarks on rebuilding the damaged U.S. economy by withdrawing the hand of the government from the market and his objection to legalization.  Ron Paul, the Libertarian candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, is more consistent in his support of liaise faire economics and legalizing usa online casinos. 

Entrepreneur Donald Trump who has voiced open support for Mitt Romney said himself that the legalization of online gambling in the U.S. is only a matter of time.  Just like online gambling has been legalized in Europe, says Trump, it will be legalized in America.
