And if it is, you're not presenting the argument correctly. As the resident board miser, who uses over 50% of his posts to put down other peoples posts, you're going to catch shit for it.
What happens when Gilbert's casino sucks?
What happens when someone wants to put a casino up in Akron, or Lorain, maybe one near Cedar Point or Kings Island?
What about when the downtown area can support multiple casinos? Perhaps as a part of a revitalized flats or a renovated lakefront?
Show me instances where Monopolies actually help the consumer? Please show me 1.
And again, why are people ok with the 50 million dollar licensing fee, when other states are giving out licenses for 3-500 million?
