I believe we already have one: Welcome to Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino in Eagle Pass, Texas! but I guess more of them: not sure. I guess I would have to see some research of past cities that have it and see how they handled it.

Absolutely. I don't gamble, but I'm all for it as a tool to create jobs and bring in state revenue.

I don't care. I don't gamble; and if people want to throw their money away or possibly develop an addiction, that's not my problem.

The same people that support "Freedom to spend your money however you want" are against casinos

I used to be on the fence, but now I say "yes". So many people head over to OK and LA, I'd like to see some of that money stay in Texas.

Absolutely. I'm tired of seeing casinos in all of our neighboring states filled with Texans. Keep the money at home. People are going to gamble no matter what.

Why not? Only thing I wouldn't like to see is Casinos in downtown San Antonio, Dallas etc... Just have special areas they'd be allowed to operate.

I'm all for it. The State Lottery is gambling, after all.. Why should it be the only game in town (literally)? Besides that, I'm a professional musician and I might have more work!
