Not everyone in the United States believes that online gambling should be legal and some, like the Tea Party movement, think that it’s time for a serious and absolute change.
The Tea Party has seen an increase in support lately, and the four Republican candidates – Mike McCalister, Adam Hasner, Craig Miller and George LeMieux – seeking to challenge Democratic US Florida Senator, Bill Nelson, in the election set to take place in November 2012, recently took part in a debate in Florida where they discussed their position toward online gambling. During this debate, the candidates made it clear that they were opposed to the legalizing of betting on the internet much to the delight of Tea Partiers and supporters in attendance.
While religious groups have been trying to put an end to the act of gambling for centuries, they have not yet been successful. However, their lack of success hasn’t stopped them from trying and Tea Partiers are not about to give up either. Due to the fact that the US Senate has a Republican majority, it is believed doubtful that online gambling will be legalized, as those members who want Tea Party supporters will be more inclined to side step the legal online gaming landmine in favor of votes.
