Say Yes to New Hampshire. Say NO to Casinos.
Political and Legal Damage
11. Legalization is irreversible.
As is clear from the experiences in other states that have legalized casino gambling and slot machines, legalization enables increased state spending and then the need to license more casinos when the anticipated revenue doesn’t materialize.
No state having legalized slots has repealed the decision, other than South Carolina, where the reversal was imposed by state Supreme Court decision. Because government will become dependent on casino taxes and gambling interests will become politically entrenched, a vote to legalize in New Hampshire should be considered a mistake that cannot be undone.
